“I say, rather than that apostates should flourish here, I will unsheath [sic] my bowie knife, and conquer or die [Great commotion in the congregation, and a simultaneous burst of feeling, assenting to the declaration]. Now, you nasty apostates, clear out, or judgment will be put to the line, and righteousness to the plummet [Voices, generally, ‘go it, go it’]. If you say it is right, raise your hands [All hands up]. Let us call upon the Lord to assist us in this, and every good work.”

~Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses 1:83~
