WTF? Echo Hawks steps down to join the leadership in a religion whose record on race relations is a throw back to the dark ages. Mormonism teaches that all dark skinned people are ''cursed" which is why black can not become priests in the church. Young has been quoted as saying, "“But let them apostatize, and they will become gray-haired, wrinkled, and black, just like the Devil" (Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, vol. 5, p. 332) The Mormons beliefs about American Indians is completely delusional. Joseph Smith believed Indians are Lamanites and by their rejection of Christ's teachings, God cursed the Lamanites with dark skin and a degraded existence. The story maintained that the Lamanites would not regain white skin and a civilized way of life until they accepted Christ's teachings. Thus, the heavenly beings instructed Smith not only to restore the true Christian church, but also to bring salvation to Native Americans. Does Echo Hawk believe in white supremacy ? The Mormons also have the authorities in various states to declare Indian parents unfit in order that Mormon parents can kidnap and steal Indian children and raise them in Mormon households. Under international law this crime is listed as genocide. Does Echo Hawk believe it's okay to inflict genocide against his own people? I conclude with my original introduction, WTFAWK?
