Impact: Once I found out that Joseph Smith put his head into a hat to look at peep stones, the same stones he went fortune hunting with, it shook my world. I wondered what else the church had white-washed and kept from me? The polyandry, polygamy and lying to Emma was another big issue for me. Then I had to look at the story of mobs being after an innocent man because Satan didn’t want the gospel restored. Made way more sense that people would be upset with shenanigans then they would be with religion.
