Fistbump of the Day #6 - Joseph Smith as the second Muhammad – “Joseph Smith or the sword!” | True Freethinker
Mariano Grinbank has posted an article I thoroughly enjoyed. In it he talks about a recent controversy: Did Joseph Smith actually compare himself to Muhammad and advocate Mormons use violence to spread their beliefs. Criticizing Mormonism can lead people to just accept such things whether they are true or not - I mean Joseph Smith was a heretic anyway, it figures! But this isn't honest. Did he say it or not? In this post, Mariano discusses this and examines the evidences. I think it's important to not purposely misrepresent anyone to advance your own understanding or viewpoint. Mariano always does a great job with posts like theses (as well as all of his work). More than a fistbump - here is a fistpound.
