A common LDS retort to questions about polygamy, pedophilia, throat slitting representations in the temple, racism, and the like is: “We don’t believe in those things anymore. Can’t you just leave the past behind us?”

The Mormon Church claims to be the one and only true church of God. In fact, Joseph Smith claimed that God himself told him all other religions were wrong. If this is the case, and we are to believe that God is unchanging, one could appropriately ask: “Why was it even OK back then? How is it that God EVER approved of such horrible things?”
