Discourse 1872-01-06
Elder W. Woodruff, said the secret of the present antagonism about Polygamy, was simply, because it was a command of God, and Lucifer was opposed to it. He did not believe in abandoning one principle of the Gospel to please this Nation or any other. We can afford to risk the issue and consequences of the present persecution—the controversary is between God and the Nation. Let us remember to keep the commandments of God, to attend to our prayers and duties, and God will deliver us. We shall certainly come off much better, by cleaving to our religion than by bartering any portion of it away for the sake of a state government. Let us unite our prayers together.
