15. Diclotican, I love ya, BUT...
SoCalNative is right about the original prophets of the LDS Church being polygamist. Joseph Smith (church founder) was either married or "sealed" to 33 known women; Brigham Young was sealed to 57 of them and was in sexual relations with 16 of them. The Church disavowed the practice because the US government said they wouldn't allow Utah into the Union until the practice of polygamy in the LDS Church was abolished.
