After a week of continued debate about the issue of racism within the LDS Church I have decided to start a new discussion so as to allow others the opportunity to jump in and debate also. In the future I will post direct quotes from LDS Prophet Brigham Young concerning race. I will allow others to read historically accurate statements made by the Prophet in his own words about why blacks shouldn't receive the priesthood etc.... For now I will allow this to begin the conversation and will allow others time to chime in with their opinions. Take Care and happy debating.

As for Brigham Young being a racist I would say dead wrong. In 1832 (Brigham was prophet at the time) the first back man was ordained a deacon in the church. At the same time all men and women of color was invited to join the church by the so call racist you claim him to be.

I have no idea. I imagine so. Not a popular faith in our state.
