this is the stupidest idea ever. there is already a stereotype, by putting this tacky stuff out there, it will escalate 10 fold.

i get you want to be an entrepreneur but, this is just BAD.

is it so wrong to want DECENT stores in this town? neat places to shop, places that sell more than touristy items?
ick.
if there were better places to shop, more money would stay in this town..

Polygamy was never a large part of Mormon culture? I call bullshit on that one. Didn't Brigham Young have over 40 wives? Didn't Joseph Smith make 14 year old girls marry him so he could basically rape them? In fact, as I recall, The Federal Government was so worried about the practice that they made the momo's outlaw it before Utah could achieve statehood. Hardly sounds like a small part of mormon culture, there.

And yes I agree, VERY tacky. Almost as tacky as that everything for $10 shop at 577 Main last year. Thankfully it's in a terrible location and will probably not even make it through the winter.

This is poor taste. Polygamist women and children are abused, brainwashed, and treated as second class citizens. Many young boys in the FLDS polygamist community are left homeless in the streets (Lost Boys). Shame on Ms. Smith for making light of a very real subject where humans are suffering.

Hey, everybody else is making money off polygamy, this Sister ought to get a chance to magnify her calling (and tithe) as well. Nobody seems to chastise Brother Marriott for the tithes he pays on the sale of alcoholic beverages and pay-per-view porn.

I've found a phone number for her business and though they won't get here in time, I think some of her merchandise would make great Christmas gifts.

What does booze and porn have to do with selling tacky polygamy t-shirts??

Sister Smith has as much right to a healthy tithe as Brother Marriott. The sale of these t-shirts, booze and porn help those tithes, and the LDS Church, grow.
