"harmony"]Mostly, LDS apologists defend Brigham.
DCP Yup. And plenty of ordinary historians, too.
I don't think there's any real evidence implicating him in the massacre, but I think there's quite a bit exculpating him.
HAHAHA, real evidence? How are you going to find the real evidence?
By putting Fox in charge of hen house? The records of any implicating kind are purged over and over and over.
Brigham Young never had to say "Go Kill Fencher Party", he just handed the the the golden key of slaughter to Mormon Thugs.
I agree with Mormons though, this event by no means makes uninvolved Mormons guilty by association. It is a small drop in the bucket in the course of human history, my ancestors had to live through no less than one thousand Mountain Meadows Massacre's.
DCP, you need to up your courage a notch and say "Yes local Mormons alone perpetrated that heinous crime", All those who participated; Klingens, Higbees, Dames, Nephis, should be shot on site as soon a just trial would end.
Problem is; Mormon leadership chose to protect or take no action against these Men; This act alone makes them accomplices.
Will Bagley's book was a great work of historical facts. Crocket can squirm all he wants, facts aren't going to disappear anytime soon.
Just say it DCP; "Mormons alone perpetrated this Crime"
Say it until the world hears that apologists have hope for fairness.
