Arson attempt at California Mormon Temple
This is just further evidence that anti-Mormon bigotry is increasing and that anti-Mormons are becoming more brazen.
Past anti-Mormon activities have included sending suspicious white powder to temples, vandalism, and the publication of anti-Mormon books, websites, and movies. Anti-Mormonism reached its worst point in the 1800’s with Missouri Governor Bogg’s extermination order and the Mormon War. Check out the links below to learn more.
Anti-Mormon media: just Google “Mormon” and find whatever anti-Mormon stuff you want.
The Extermination order and the Mormon War (there are three listed on wikipedia) are explained on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extermination_order ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utah_War ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illinois_Mormon_War#The_.22Mormon_War_in_Illinois.22_and_the_Mormon_Exodus ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mormon_War_(1838)
