140 years ago today - Mar 26, 1882

Two days after the Edmunds anti-polygamy act is signed in to law, Wilford Woodruff preaches: "However, if I were to express my feelings to Congress and the leading men of our nation, and to our enemies and the whole Christian world, I would say, do not weep for us-and we are sensible of the fact that they will not-but rather weep for yourselves and your children, for as sure as the Lord lives the evils that men seek to bring upon us, will return in due time upon their own heads, heaped up, pressed down and running over. For it is an eternal law, and a law by which we are governed, that what measure we mete, shall be measured back to us again."
