Didn’t the mormons start as basically a militant terrorist org, like the danites and shit

Joe Smith, formerly convicted of fraud, 'found' the Tablets of Moroni somewhere or other -- maybe in Latin America, but more likely in his own stateside studio. Via careful 'translation', Smith revealed sacred stuff to the world. I once resided near his base of operations. Strange place, Palmyra NY. Follow the tornado damage there for a hint of how divine powers reacted to Smith's efforts.

No, I doubt Joe Smith founded LDS for revolutionary terrorism -- more for just power and sex. That worked till he was lynched. Sad. 8-)
