Worshipping the Mormon Pioneers
I write this article with the intent of introducing the Mormon people to the idea of thinking about what and/or whom they are worshipping. What I don’t want to do is send the message that I’m here to bash them or ridicule the intent they hold in their hearts for Jesus.
Each year the state of Utah celebrates Pioneer Days in July, with the 24th of that month being the apex of their homage paid to the early Mormons who pushed and pulled their handcarts and wagons from Nauvoo, Illinois to the Wasatch Front. Their second prophet Brigham Young, led the group of believers to their new home where they thought they could “live their religion” (aka polygamy) without being bothered by non-Mormons.
