Hateful comments about the Mormons...
Item # 594185
May 27, 1876
SALT LAKE WEEKLY TRIBUNE, Utah, May 27, 1876
* Mormons - Mormonism
This is not a Mormon publication, as is evident by some of the content including front page; "Harem News" "The Prince Ordained to the Presidency of the Church" and "Mormon Bestiality" which begins: "The Mormon religion, if it can consistently be called a religion, not only affords a cloak for bestiality but develops innumerable cases of the most revolting crimes. Murder, concubinage & incest are dogmas of the Mormon faith which have, to a very large extent, been introduced, moulded & finally established by Brigham Young..." with more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed, nice condition.
Note: This issue is being offered as a piece of history. Newspapers with content related to the numerous atrocities,hateful language, and/or oppression help to verify what some feebly attempt to deny over time. We at Rare Newspapers offer such items being mindful of Sir Winston Churchill's famous quote (originally stated by George Santayana): "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it".
