Saratoga Springs, UT—A controversial new group within the church calling themselves “All Wives Matter” is demanding that the Church begin displaying portraits of every single one of Joseph Smith’s 49 (?) wives in their meeting houses.
It is almost standard practice to display a portrait of Emma Smith (Joseph’s first wife) next to the prophet in church Relief Society rooms.
“The church has made a lot of progress in being more transparent about their past,” said Fanny A. Jessop, the movement’s founder. “All we ask is that they be consistent by restoring Joseph’s other wives to their proper place beside their husband. They belong to him just as much as Emma does.”
