It’s a good first step, as presented in the NYT:

Mormon leaders have acknowledged for the first time that the church’s founder and prophet, Joseph Smith, portrayed in church materials as a loyal partner to his loving spouse Emma, took as many as 40 wives, some already married and one only 14 years old.

    It’s funny how religious prophets have large harems of wives and concubines. Wikiislam (http://wikiislam.net/wiki/List_of_Muhammads_Wives_and_Concubines) lists more than a dozen wives for Muhammad, plus another couple dozen women who refused or broke engagements. Apparently God likes his prophets to be philanderers.
