The Nauvoo Expositor vs. D&C 132; RFM Refutes Polygamy Deniers' Claim

Did Joseph Smith record D&C 132, the revelation on plural marriage? A growing number of members of the church and splinter groups believe that Joseph Smith did not practice polygamy, but rather, this practice was instituted by Brigham Young. They also believe that any written record of Joseph's polygamy, including D&C 132 was created years later by Brigham Young to make it appear that Joseph Smith practiced polygamy. Radio Free Mormon joins Mormonish on this explosive episode to provide incontrovertible evidence that D&C 132 was recorded in Joseph Smith's life time, and was seen and reviewed by several different people who printed affidavits in the Nauvoo Expositor. This comparison between their description of D&C 132, as stated in the affidavits, and D&C 132 itself makes it perfectly clear that this document must have existed during Joseph Smith's lifetime. Join us for this fascinating episode as Radio Free Mormon puts the evidence on trial!
