170 years ago today - Feb 6, 1853

Brigham Young exhorts the Saints to "observe the Mormon Creed. Let everyone mind their own business." This "Mormon Creed" was first published by Joseph Smith in the Jun 11, 1842 edition of THE WASP: "Mormon Creed - To mind their own business and let everyone else DO LIKEWISE." When the Logan temple was dedicated in 1884 it contained an ornate, backpainted, glass fixture with the words: "Mormon Creed/Mind/Your Own Business/Saints/Will/Observe This/All Others Ought To." This piece has been displayed in the Museum of Church History and Art.
