The Salt Lake Tribune featured several related stories in a special Living the Principle section on Sunday. The photo galleries are rather interesting: one of present-day Hildale and Colorado City (big, really big houses and plain-looking women in pioneerish dresses) and one of the 1953 Short Creek raid (makes the present day community look pretty modern by comparison).
The timeline given under the heading Origins of Polygamy is so misleading as to be dishonest. It says "1843: Smith discloses the principle of celestial marriage." No, he shared it with a few close associates, but didn't disclose it to the general public or to the vast majority of early Mormons. It notes Orson Pratt's 1852 General Conference discourse on polygamy without stating this was the first time the Church admitted publicly it sponsored and supported the practice. In says "1862: The first federal law is passed outlawing polygamy," suggesting it was legal before 1862 which is ridiculous. The statute merely restated what was universally understood as the applicable common law prohibition against polygamy under the common law of every state and federal common law as it had been understood since the 17th century. Finally, there is no mention of the practice of post-1890 polygamy as sponsored and practiced by many of the Church's highest leaders. What a hack job. The timeline is the most inaccurate piece of work I've ever seen in the Tribune. And I only read the first ten (out of about fifty) entries!
