Despite a life of crime and sexual liasons with the children (some as young as 14) and the wives of his followers, he succeeded in gathering several thousand followers and founded a city in Illinois where he, as mayor, was able to escape justice from all the crimes he had committed in Missouri and Ohio. But after his sexual liasons with teenagers and other mens wives exposed in a newly founded newspaper, he ordered it destroyed and committed treason against the U.S. by ordering his private militia in to action. While awaiting trial on the treason charges he ordered his militia to come and break him out of jail, but the messenger he sent refused to join him in his treasonous acts. He was killed in a gun battle with a vigilante mob, but mormons claim he managed to kill 2 of the vigilantes.
Because of Joseph Smith's penchant for abusing his power to fuck the teenage daughters of his followers, a married middle-aged man who uses a position of power to fuck a teenager is Joseph Smithing.
Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon, ancient Scripture that testifies of Jesus Christ and His visit to the Americas.
According to revelation and instruction from God, Joseph Smith founded the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on 6 April 1830.
The Lord told Joseph that his name would be had for good and evil throughout the generations, and ever it has been. While many insult this Prophet, the Church he started grew from 6 members in 1830 to over 12 million in 2005.
Joseph Smith was an honorable man who sought all his life to fulfill God's work and will on earth. Finally, Joseph gave his life in testament to the work when an angry, evil, jealous mob martyrd him in Carthage, Illinois in June 1843. Joseph was being held on false and spurious charges and under the alleged protection of the State of Illinois and the Governor when the mob murdered him in cold blood, together with his brother Hyrum.
