“If You Don’t Like it, You May go Hang”

It is stated that one church leader said this ("If you don't like it, you may go hang) in reference to polygamy. Who said it?
a.                  Brigham Young
b.                  Heber C. Kimball
c.                   B. H. Roberts
d.                  Emma Smith
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   Cardston, Alberta
Most of the Mormon pioneers brought teams, farm equipment, and moderate bank accounts with them to Canada. Charles O. Card’s wife had inherited a fortune of $30,000 from her father, Brigham Young, and she is said to have invested $25,000 of this fortune in Canada. Her money helped to finish a sawmill and a flourmill in 1891, a cooperative store, a meat market, a creamery, an irrigation ditch in 1889, and the purchase of a steam thresher.
