“MOUNTAIN MEADOWS MASSACRE HORROR CONTINUES 150 YEARS LATER”
As a nation, we are all aware of the horror of 9/11/2001; but few are aware of the horror of the First September 11th.
Known as the Mountain Meadows Massacre, this horrific event happened September 11, 1857. On that tragic September day, 120 innocent men, women, and children were brutally murdered by as many as 100 Mormon men under direct orders from their Priesthood leadership. This was a very rich wagon train heading to California from Arkansas consisting of about 140 people, 1,000 head of cattle, 200 horses, 40 wagons and thousands of dollars in gold was attacked, looted and left with but 17 survivors, all 7 years of age or less.
There is no question that the Mormon Priesthood ordered this massacre, and the Mormon Church today will not allow the families to properly bury their dead. How is this possible in 2007? The descendants of these people petitioned the Mormon Church in 1999 for Federal Stewardship of this area so that they could access the graves and properly honor their dead. They were refused. In the Spring of 2007 another request was made; again denial. Mormon Prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley said, “it’s not in the best interests of the church to allow federal stewardship in the meadows.” Phil Bolinger, President of the Mountain Meadows Monument Foundation, meeting with Mormon representative, Marlin Jensen on April 25th said, “It’s not right for the people who had complicity to the killings to be the grave owner.” He followed up with a sage question, “I asked him, ‘How do you think the Kennedy family would feel if the Lee Harvey Oswald family had control of the Kennedy tomb?”
If you want to right one of the WORST WRONGS in American history, contact us—we are collecting signatures on petitions demanding the Mormon Church to turn this killing field over to the Federal Government so the families can properly inter their dead. Only the angry outcry of the American public will force the Mormon Church to do the right thing. Tell everyone you know about this!
