Did Sex Motivate Joseph Smith?

This Program reviews the several Official Mormon Gospel Topic Essays that discuss the development and management of Polygamy within the Mormon Church.  The central assumption today is that Joseph Smith Jr. was motivated by sex when selecting his many wives, with many being the wives of his friends and church members.  The legality of this practice will be discussed from both the Mormon and Government view.

As a former Mormon Bishop and member of the Church for over 32 years, my wife Kathy and I have spent many years in various Leadership positions of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, documenting, verifying and studying, specifically, the original teachings of the Church. I have found many of the most fundamental of these teachings to be completely out of harmony with the Lord’s teachings in the Bible.
