A science fiction writer from the 19th century, born on December 23rd, 1805, died on June 27th, 1844 by execution. His is the creator of the Mormon aka LDS (Latter Day Saints) religion. Some would say he is the Ron Hubbard for his time period for their outrageous and whacky beliefs. Joseph Smith is known by Mormons as the "Dear Leader". Joseph Smith stated when he formed and founded the Mormon sect, he claims he was visit by two men, who were aliens from a distant planet known as Kolob and told him to start a religion. Joseph further claims he was given special glasses to read gold plates, that were also given to him by the two aliens. This may have been the first instance in documented history (well Mormon history) where someone was hallucinating from the influence of drugs or alcohol, which is why Mormons do not believe in partaking in any of these. In theory, a man of his time could not write such writings unless they were high or intoxicated. The people of the Mormon/LDS sect refer to Joseph Smith as the dear leader for bringing back what they believe to be the true church back to earth. The Mormon church recruits people for the church by sending out 19-21 year old men dressed in dark suites and white shirt with ties and sometimes, young girls who are older than 21 dressed in white blouses and dark skirts/slacks to convince people who are not of that faith to believing that there church is true.
We love our dear leader, Joseph Smith, who brought by the true church back to this earth.

The best con man that ever lived. Created his own religion based on ideas he borrowed (stole) from an unpublished novel and the mason sect. Established a devoted flock of religious followers while remarkably continuing his snake oil ways until the day he was killed. The man is now a saint and founder of the Mormon church.
Ken Delay is a loser. He made lots of money, but got busted in his own lifetime and will always be a loser. Joseph Smith, however, created his own reality making the rules and then changing the rules to suit his mood. Joseph Smith is a saint.

A married man who created a religion in order to have guilt-free sex with his 16 year old housekeeper. He wrote a book which contains the phrase "and it came to pass" hundreds of times, because he was an uneducated man who tried to copy the style of the Bible and couldn't write very well. Although he practiced polygamy and he is the most important person in the Mormon religion, Mormons today are very against polygamy because a long time ago the church decided it needed to stop in order to gain acceptance among people. Don't be fooled. Mormon heaven involves polygamy, their prophet was a polygamist, and if they could have continued marrying multiple 12 year old girls and fucking them (as they did in the past and as fundamentalist Mormons continue to do to this day, seriously) you can bet your ass they would.

Joseph Smith created a cult, but his followers will tell you it is just as legitimate as any other religion. Except for the fact that all the world's scientists will tell you that New Mexico was not the cradle of civilization, and there is absolutely no evidence of Israelis in ancient America. Sorry, Joseph Smith had no idea of modern science when he was making up this crock of garbage.

Mormons aren't bad people, but they are stupid for believing in this gigantic load of bullshit. They also believe non-white people were cursed by God.
Joseph Smith was a prophet, dumb da-dumb-dumb-dumb

Founder of Mormonism.
Every Hebrew letter is a number. The name Joseph Smith written in Hebrew adds up to 666. Joseph is: Yod = 10. Holem Waw = 6. Samech = 60. Pheh = 80. Smith is: Samech = 60. Mem = 40. Yod = 10. Thau = 400. Add it up.

Joseph Smith was a prophet in the mid 1800s. He established the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). He did NOT establish plural marriage for his own satifaction, but because he got a commandment. He was marytered for his religion and his God. He was brave, and yes, he and the church he established are Christians.
Joseph Smith gave his life for the religion he believed in.

A man who was persecuted by those who could not conceive of there being modern-day revelation. He restored the gospel after a nearly 1700 year apostasy. This church, called "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints", does not practice polygamy, and does not believe in saints the way other religions believe in saints.
Joseph Smith died a martyr for what? For what he knew was true and wouldn't deny.
