Joesph smith's sexuality? If this is what you are referring to the only court records I know of were made bey affidavits made by women who claimed to have had sexual relations with Joseph Smith and made these claims long after (I think decades) after his death. That is not evidence. I can file an affidavit against anyone else claiming to have had sexual relations. When did Emma Smith ever say Joseph Smith had extra marital seuxla affairs?
Commentators on both the right and left and both secular and religious note with disdain that Mormons (Latter Day Saints, as Mormons refer to themselves) have irrational practices and beliefs.

I read and hear these dismissals of Mormonism with some amusement -- because everyone who makes these charges holds beliefs and/or practices that outsiders consider just as irrational.

Let's begin with the religious critics.

There doesn't exist...
