The article here is case in point. I’ll never forget the first time I saw maps from the era of Joseph Smith’s day.  I sat in shock as I read names of valleys and townships that were eerily similar to names I knew were in the Book of Mormon.

salt lake mormon temple 2Journal of Discourses 7:337; “You may inquire of the intelligent of the world whether they can tell why the aborigines of this country are dark, loathsome, ignorant, and sunken into the depths of degradation… When the Lord has a people, he makes covenants with them and gives unto them promises: then, if they transgress his Law, change his ordinances, and break his covenants he has made with them, he will put a mark upon them, as in the case of the Lamanites and other portions of the house of Israel; but by-an-by they will become a white and delightsome people.” – Prophet Brigham Young, Salt Lake City, October 8, 1859

Racist Mormon Toys Update

Congrats!  You did it!!!  I thought I’d give an update on the Racist Mormon Toys.  Today I was informed those toys have been removed from the list of available products to purchase from Latter-Day Designs.

Thanks to all of you who took the time to e-mail the company and tell them you didn’t approve of their racist products.  It just goes to show you what we can do as a society when we stand up and speak out!  If you see other things like this that need attention don’t hesitate to let me know and we’ll do what we can.  Thanks Rebecca, Salt Lake Tribune and Indian Country Newspaper!

With Love in Christ, Michelle Grim
