I was following orders
on May 14, 2018
The famous refrain used by cruel despots to justify their crimes must have been repeated ad nauseam throughout history. "ACTING UNDER ORDERS from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The horrid deeds then committed were done as a duty which we believed we owed to God and our Church." - J.D. Lee.
It so important to keep the memory of atrocities like this alive. I am indebted to the author for disabusing me of my ignorance, having never heard the sordid tale of the Mountain Meadows massacre. May the names of Brigham Young and Thomas Kane, among the others involved, forever live in ignominy.
