Brigham Young and racist remarks

"Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so. The nations of the earth have transgressed every law that God has given, they have changed the ordinances and broken every covenant made with the fathers, and they are like a hungry man that dreameth that he eateth, and he awaketh and behold he is empty." --Brigham Young (Journal of Discourses, Vol.10, p.109)

Wonderful. I also love how he says beforehand that this is the law of god. it's kind of hard for TBMs to excuse him as only "speaking as a man." Is god a racist bastard or was brigham a false prophet? why wasn't he removed from the earth as god promised would happen to prophets who led the church astray? huh. so many great quotes from old briggy. perhaps I will post some more later.
