Thank you for this, Tyler. I strongly agree. I think this paragraph was offensive, and it made it seem that polygamy is still being practiced by Mormons today. Many people nowadays have the misconception that it is, when it is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN against. You are right about Joseph Smith.

It is specifically stated in the Mormon document “Family: A Proclamation to the World” that marriage shall only be between one man and one woman.
