The first in a series of books comprising an exposé of the Mormon Church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints). This volume concentrates on polygamy and little known polyandry which is hidden from rank and file Mormons. Historical evidence proves the Mormon Church has rewritten its own history through lies, suppression, omission and interpolation; such that the truth is so well hidden from members; unless they look outside the Church for information; they will never know of the continued conspiracy to deceive them. Contains over 120 pages of appendices, including complete lists and analysis of all the wives and families of Joseph Smith, Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball, highlighting polyandrous relationships and children born into those unions; plus details of over a hundred children born post 1890 to polygamous wives of General Authorities who violated their own canonised Manifesto after they had covenanted to stop the practice.

The title of this book, The MORMON Delusion, Volume 1, and the four companion volumes, The MORMON Delusion, Volume’s 2, 3, 4, and 5 are aptly named. In these five volume’s Mormonism is shown to be a hoax of proportions so enormous it challenges the imagination. As you read Whitefield’s meticulous research you come to realize in its beginnings Mormonism was an event of time and place by a man whose genius, charm, and pathologic morality answered to one God; The art of the possible. What Joseph Smith could get away with he recklessly pursued. His genius was most evident in how he justified his actions and behavior. Volume 1 is a study of Mormon polygamy and secret polyandry practiced by Mormon Church leaders in the early church. Most know that Brigham Young, second President and prophet of the Mormon Church, had multiple wives. Few realize that his predecessor, Joseph Smith, also practiced polygamy. Even fewer know that Smith was marrying women not divorced and living with their... More > husbands, a behavior defined as polyandry. The Appendix A through N are replete with a detailed accounting of early Mormon bigamy, complete with references. Whitefield makes it easy to follow the bigamous habits of not just Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, but all of the early church leaders. The impression that hit me the hardest after finishing this first of 5 volumes is how thorough the Mormon Church indoctrinates its members. It is a conditioning that begins at the cradle forming a cognitive focus incapable of seeing its own limitations. Never was I more impressed with the fact that our culture is the reality though which we view the world. To break free of that mind set, as Whitefield has done is truly remarkable. Most evident while reading was the author’s attitude. From PREFACE through AFTER THOUGHTS his treatment of this subject was open minded and fair. I couldn’t recommend The MORMON Delusion Vol. 1 more highly.< Less
