Mark Twain’s Views on Polygamy

What did Mark Twain state about the Mormon man that had more than one wife?
a.                  It was an act of Christian charity
b.                  It was an act of Christian embarrassment
c.                   It was an act that should get him hung
d.                  It was an act that should rile any law abiding American citizen
Yesterday’s answer:
B.   The Sunday School
Cardston, Alberta:   A Sunday School was organized in June 1887, about a month after the arrival of the first group. A complete ward organization was set up fifteen months later, on October 7, 1888. The ward was named “Card” and John A. Woolf was made bishop. Apostles F. M. Lyman and J. W. Taylor of Salt Lake City were present.
