“The time is coming when justice will be laid to the line and righteousness to the plummet; when we shall take the old broad sword and ask, ‘Are you of God?’ and if you are not heartily on the Lord’s side, you will be hewn down. I feel like reproving you; you are like a wild ass that rears and almost breaks his neck before he will be tamed. It is so with this people.”

Brigham Young – 2 March 1856, Journal of Discourses – Volume 3 (Liverpool, England: Orson Pratt, 1856), 226.
