    Thanks, John! :)

    (I think you meant “not as simple as we like to think.”)

    I wonder how many modern Mormons would actually like Smith if he were somehow magically transported to modern times? I bet many would be shocked by him given the “Glamour Shots” make over the LDS church has provided them.

      @ Odell: From my experience I know many LDSs (mostly within the ranks of local leadership — ward and stake) who fully embody and would most definitely espouse JS’s demeanor hinted at in this referenced article. A lot of Mormons (again from my experience) are not what they seem to be outwardly.
