The Improvement Era, Vol. 55, No. 11, November 1952, p. 789 “Some Principles of a Happy Home … There is nothing temporary in the home of the Latter-day Saints. There is no element of transitoriness in the family relationship. To the Latter-day Saint the home is truly the basic unit of society; and parenthood is next to Godhood. The secret of good citizenship lies in the home. The secret of instilling faith in God, faith in his Son, the Redeemer of the world, faith in the organizations of the Church, lies in the home.” — David O. McKay (more…)

David O. McKay

“Although, I do not care much for a negro, still I have a warm spot in my heart for those beautiful singers.”

“There is not now, and there never has been a doctrine in this church that the negroes are under a divine curse. There is no doctrine in the church of any kind pertaining to the negro. We believe that we have a scriptural precedent for withholding the priesthood from the negro. It is a practice, not a doctrine, and the practice someday will be changed. And that’s all there is to it.” – Sterling M. McMurrin affidavit, March 6, 1979. See David O. McKay and The Rise of Modern Mormonism by Greg Prince and William Robert Wright.

Aaron Johnson 

June 22, 1806 – May 10, 1877

“A person who is fundamentally honest doesn’t need a code of ethics. The Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount are all the ethical code anybody needs.” — Harry S. Truman

Early Mormon PolygamistsSometimes truth is a hard commodity to come by. For Aaron Johnson’s clan it was always in short demand as they plowed through life rationalizing their shoddy behavior. While we aren’t privy to their personal conversations, evidence remains showing a Mack truck could be driven through their trough of manipulating lies.

As stated later in this report, our look at Aaron Johnson’s life marks the thirty-third family we’ve researched in our series, Polygamy & Mormon Church Leaders. To date, if this isn’t the worst case of pedophile behavior and incest I’ve seen thus far, it’s right near the top. His predatory behavior rivaled even that of his beloved prophet, Joseph Smith.

Mormon Decisions 10Relief Society Magazine, v. 3, no. 7, July 1916; “…Such parents may be sincere, even if misguided; but in most cases the desire not to have children has its birth in vanity, passion, and selfishness. Such feelings are the seeds sown in early married life that produce a harvest of discord, suspicion, estrangement, and divorce.” – David O McKay

salt lake mormon temple 2Gospel Ideals, pg 468; “Any effort or desire on the part of a married couple to shirk the responsibility of parenthood reflects a condition of mind antagonistic to the best interests of the home, the state, and the nation. No doubt there are some worldly people who honestly limit the number of children and the family to two or three because of insufficient means to clothe and educate a large family as the parents would desire to do, but in nearly all such cases, the two or three children are no better provided for than two or three times that number would be. Such parents may be sincere, even if misguided; but in most cases the desire not to have children has its birth in vanity, passion, and selfishness.” – Prophet David O. McKay

January 6 – It’s been said that the heart of Christianity can be found in Romans 4:25.  “Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.”

As Christians we can take refuge in knowing where our eternity lies, the work of our salvation has already been taken care of.

As a Mormon you believe that “work is the blessing that brings about salvation”.  David O. McKay, Pathways to Happiness, pg. 381
