No Longer Persecuted

Brigham Young, President of the Church, 31 May 1857:When the spirit of persecution, the spirit of hatred, of wrath, and malice ceases in the world against this people, it will be the time that this people have apostatized and joined hands with the wicked, and never until then.” (In Journal of Discourses, vol. 4, reported by G. D. Watt, edited by S. W. Richards [Liverpool: Published by S. W. Richards, 1857], p. 327; also “Remarks,” reported by G. D. Watt, The Deseret News, vol. 7, no. 14, edited by Albert Carrington [Great Salt Lake City: 10 June 1857], p. 107.)

Gordon B. Hinckley, President of the Church, 5 Oct. 1996:Ours is the blessing to live in a better season. The terrible persecutions of the past are behind us. Today we are looked upon with respect by people across the world.” (“Listen by the Power of the Spirit,” Ensign, vol. 26, no. 11, edited by Jack H Goaslind [Salt Lake City, Utah: Published by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Nov. 1996], p. 5.)

    Sorry, but *all* quotes from Brigham are useless. That man was not even a nice person, let alone a man of God. There is plenty of persecution alright. Most of it from his wicked and frankly stupid made-up doctrines. God turned the church over to judgment when the early saints chose the wickedness and secret combinations of polygamy over righteousness. GBH et. al. were/are just nice guys running the businesses that sprouted from Brigham et. al.’s treachery.
