The excellence of this motion picture (Sony Pictures Home Entertainment 19816 being the North American DVD edition viewed) took me by surprise. I had expected this docudrama to be one that evangelicals would have used for their own purposes to defame L.D.S. Mormonism, with clearly apologetic aims. That is not the case, at all, to my relief. This film, without overt religious partisanship for either side, puts into nauseating light the L.D.S. Mormon perpetration of this blight upon U.S. history (which occurred, however, with even less Paiute Indian participation than it suggests), one of the most infamous genocidally and religiously motivated mass atrocities in the history of the U. S. of A. and of its then territories. This event of early Mormonism fully deserves this brutal, mostly factually accurate retelling of the massacre at Mountain Meadows, in Utah, an account that is historically and humanely motivated rather than being merely some religious cinematic diatribe.

I should have realised, even before seeing the film, that the illustrious likes of Jon Voight, Trent Ford, and Terence Stamp, among the other excellent cast, would not stoop to doing an "hatchet job" on Mormons for some neo-evangelical, Pentecostal, or fundamentalist Christian film outfit. The movie was shot in Alberta, the Dominion of Canada's own most Mormon-infested province, which only seems fitting. Alberta stands in reasonably well for Utah, both of them, anyway, sharing the topography of the Northwest Rockies area of the North American continent.

It is difficult for me to be entirely objective about the Mountain Meadowns Massacre. Although I was born and raised in California, I have family, both among my paternal and maternal relatives, indirectly or perhaps even directly associated with this tawdry L.D.S.

Should anyone be surprised that Hollywood has it's Liberal agendas? Election year anti-Mormon propaganda, anyone?
Someone asked me, "What would the 'conservative' view of the massacre be?" I wouldn't know. But maybe a more honest question would be, "What would be the non-anti-Mormon, non-propaganda view of the Mountain Meadows Massacre?" An honest view of the MMM would involve perspective. Bigots and propagandists don't want perspective because it destroys their craft. They prey upon people who want easy answers rather than truth. They might feast their eyes on a Hollywood movie that infuses history with non-history and fictionalized melodramatic scenes, drop their jaws and gasp, and then go to Amazon and give it five stars.
What, then, would be perspective about this horrible event? Perhaps we start by acknowledging that the affair absolutely was an atrocity; it was horrid. But fair, honest minds would simply want to know more. After searching, they would find out that the Latter-day Saints could not find justice or safety in their own country. During the first decades of their history they were harassed, killed, faced an "Extermination Order against the Mormons" issued by the Governor of the State of Missouri (an order that was followed by a massacre of Latter-day Saints at Haun's Mill), their homes burned, their women violated, property stolen, driven from place, to place, to place, to place. Finally their founding prophet was murdered via a conspiracy. And then one last exodus--that involved crossing our continent, during which hundreds dropped dead by the way and buried in shallow graves.
Now, without having walked two meters in their shoes, where would you guess breaking point would be?
