Michigan found itself infested with Mormons when James Strang split off from founder Joseph Smith, and wandered over to Beaver Island, Michigan.
“They settled on the island because they needed more land and so that they could be more isolated from other white settlers, who they called Gentiles.”
There they would threaten people at gunpoint in the dead of night in their homes.
The federal government got tired of this behavior, and the Navy ship the USS Michigan intervened and deposed this self styled ‘king.’
One of the famous tricks of the polymagous Mormon Cult out west is to have a lot of wives, who have a lot of children, and the ‘husband’ only declares one wife and collects government welfare for all the rest of his progeny.¹
They seek to out breed everyone in their cancerous growth colonies.
Some currently famous Mormons out west also take money from the Catholic Church and abuse their kids.Mitt Romney, a Michigan Mormon who wanted to be president.
Mitt Romney had a mistress in Cuba and has ties to the drug cartels and blood diamonds.
The founding of the Mormon Cult, Joseph Smith, is interestingly tied to Freemasonry.
