Selon l'Eglise mormone, son fondateur a eu entre 30 et 40 femmes 13.11.2014Cela pourrait s'intituler : l'union - maritale - fait la force. Considéré comme le prophète de l'Eglise de Jésus-Christ des saints des derniers jours (LDS), nom officiel de l'Eglise mormone, Joseph Smith (1805-1844) aurait ainsi "scellé", selon le mot mormon, des unions, pas toujours consommées, avec des femmes parfois déjà mariées et une jeune fille de 14 ans. Lui-même réticent, il aurait été à trois reprises enjoint par un ange de procéder à ces "mariages pluriels", rejetés ensuite par l'Eglise officielle en 1890. Selon le New York Times, qui consacre une analyse à ces révélations, c'est la première fois que l'Eglise mormone reconnaît et détaille les multiples mariages de son prophète, jusque-là présenté comme le mari fidèle de son épouse Emma. Selon Eric Hawkins, porte-parole de l'Eglise, la pratique de la polygamie par Joseph Smith était connue des plus érudits mais contestée au sein même de l'Eglise. En 1820, Joseph Smith, à 14 ans, affirmait avoir vu Dieu et Jésus-Christ lui confier la tâche de restaurer l'église des origines, avec l'aide du "Livre de Mormon". Persécutés, les Mormons se sont réfugiés dans l'Utah (ouest), où Salt Lake City est leur "capitale", et vivent aujourd'hui surtout dans l'ouest des Etats-Unis où ils ont entamé une immense généalogie du monde. Joseph Smith lui-même a été tué par une foule en colère alors qu'il était en prison et dans le même temps candidat à la présidence des Etats-Unis.

Women and the Vote

According to the Mormon Church, its founder had between 30 and 40 wives. This could be titled: marital union - an act of force. Considering how the prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints (LDS), official name of the Mormon Church, Joseph Smith (1805-1844) had been “sealed” according to the Mormon word, the unions, not always consummated, with some women already married and a young girl of 14 years old. Himself reticent, he had three times been asked by an angel to proceed with multiple marriages, thus rejecting the official Church in 1890. According to the New York Times, who dedicate analysis to these revelations, this is the first time the Mormon Church has recognised and detailed the multiple marriages of its prophet, up until the present [known] as the loyal husband of his wife Emma. According to Eric Hawkins, spokesperson for the Church, the practice of polygamy by Joseph Smith was known by scholars but contested in the heart of even the Church. In 1820, Joseph Smith, at 14 years old, affirmed having seen God and Jesus Christ entrusted the task of restoring the church to its origins with the help of the Book of Mormon. Persecuted, the Mormons sought refuge in Utah (west), where Salt Lake City is their “capital,”and live today particularly in the west of the United States where they have begun a vast world family line. Joseph Smith himself was killed by a mob, angry while he was in prison and at the same time a candidate for President of the United States.

Merci Nsimirenadine pour ayant partagé cette histoire au sujet de l’Elise Mormon. C’était très intéressante! Je suis curieuse: Savez-vous s’il y a une histoire similaire a RDC? Si non, pensez vous que cette histoire puisse se passer chez vous?
