"Suppose you found your brother in bed with your wife, and put a javelin through both of them. You would be justified, and they would atone for their sins, and be received into the Kingdom of God. I would at once do so, in such a case; and under the circumstances, I have no wife whom I love so well that I would not put a javelin through her heart, and I would do it with clean hands.... There is not a man or woman, who violates the covenants made with their God, that will not be required to pay the debt. The blood of Christ will never wipe that out, your own blood must atone for it."
Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses 1:108

Dude was into very violent revenge fantasy, wasn't he? He wrote similar things about loose women and interracial couples. Wonder how many TBMs would be okay with this?

Yes. You need a 5 minute secret ceremony first...THEN you can boink her and never see her again.

Funny how he expects women to share him but he will kill any woman who expects him to share her.

This guy is so repugnant to me. I cannot express the embarrassment I have whenever I have to state where I went to college.

Secret MORmON handshakes are the thing that makes sex OK, otherwise a javelin through the heart is appropriate for those that engage in sex. It takes a real MORmON to explain this kind of stuff, and real MORmONS to believe it.

For the first act of adultery you may forgive a man, but if a man beds with a woman and does it 10 times he is guilty.

Young should be judged and punished that harshly, as he certainly deserves it, everyday as he dwells in Hell.

While on a mission in Boston in 1842-44, as a member of the 12 Apostles, Young had an affair with Augusta Adams Cobb, and she became pregnant, and left Boston, for Nauvoo, Illinois, where she married Young on November 2, 1843, and named the child she was pregnant with, George Brigham Cobb. The child died in 1843.

The reason this is adultery, and not just "spiritual wivery", is that Augusta was married to a living man, Henry Cobb, since 1822, at the time of the 1843 marriage to Brigham Young. They (Augusta / Henry) were not estranged or separated, etc., at the time Augusta had the affair with Young (a common excuse given by Mormon Apologists, in a attempt to avoid the adultery claim). Furthermore, Henry successfully sued to the Massachusetts State Supreme Court, in 1847, for divorce, on the grounds of adultery.

It is a matter of law and public record, that Brigham Young was an adulterer, as a Mormon Missionary and Apostle.

Oh, good! Let's get a javelin, then, to put through his heart...just like he said we should do!

Aw, shoot. He's already dead. Dang it. :(

Old Brigham was a horny son of a gun,

Had no trouble telling others not to do what he had already done!

Another justification for the practice of marrying other men's wives that have sometimes seen is that only marriages performed by one holding the sealing power in the temple were "real" marriages, that all other marriages were invalid in God's eyes. Thus, when a Joseph Smith or Brigham Young married an already married woman, there was no adultery since the existing marriage was not valid. I somehow don't think that argument would go over very well, to in effect say that every married couple in the world is living in sin unless the marriage was performed in a Mormon temple.

I don't remember now where I read this, but I believe it was an argument used in the 1850s.
