Church History Vol. 2 Chapter 26 Page 584

(~1842)

584 CHAPTER 26

1842

IN a former chapter we made some mention of John C. Bennett, who about this time was expelled from the church, 1 and soon after published his "Mormonism Exposed," charging the church leaders with immorality and crime. We devote this space to Mr. Bennett because it is a part of the history, and to show the course pursued by the church with such characters, also to show what the position of the church was on some of the things charged.

1 NOTICE.

The subscribers, members of the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, withdraw the hand of fellowship from General John C. Bennett, as a Christian, he having been labored with from time to time to persuade him to amend his conduct, apparently to no good effect.
