https://www.rawstory.com/2017/11/idaho-man-said-it-was-gods-will-that-he-rape-a-teen-girl-and-take-her-as-his-wife/

"An Idaho man who was convicted of raping a teenage girl tried to justify his actions by telling his wife that God had told him to take the girl and make her his second wife."

Just following in Joe's footsteps. I wonder if mormons would condone this like they do Joe's version?

An interesting thing about J.S's believed sexual misbehavior re. young girls and women, is that next to no one appared to complain (or brag) about these events, even if they had children as a result.

It was also said that he preferred to have sexual encounters with married women, as therefore, it could be claimed that the resultant pregnacies were a result of her husband....not ol' Joe.

That's how coercion works. He gets them to believe he's doing them a favor. We do know that Hellen Mar Kimbal didn't think the arrangement was to her benefit. And in the end, I'm sure that Fanny Alger wished she'd never met Joe Smith.
