    While Mormons busily multiply post hoc explanations for Smith’s behavior, Occam’s Razor steers us directly to the obvious, namely, that Smith was a sexual predator. He used his prophet-fish status in his tiny Mormon-pool to manipulate women into acquiescence. For the horrors of polygamy, read Carolyn Jessop’s book, “Escape.” For the ridiculousness of it, read Joanne Hanks’ “It’s Not About the Sex My A**.” Smith’s original, alleged “revelation” where God commands polygamy is found in Section 132 of the Mormon scripture book Doctrine and Covenants.
