2. LDS people were routinely lynched early in the church's history

The reason they went all the way out to Utah is that people in Missouri were killing them by the dozens. So they formed armed militias for self-defense, which more or less worked at least long enough for them to get out west. (Then they became terrorist nutjobs and slaughtered a bunch of non-Mormons in 1857, oddly enough on September 11th; creepily this is why Utah is still the "honeybee state".)
