the death penalty.[William Cooper: The United Order is, in reality, the total makeup of the full body of the Illuminati. All of the different organizations will come together torule the world. There is a doctrine, an ancient pagan doctrine of blood atonement connected to the Mormon church.][And] since the early days of the church, it has always been Mormon doctrine that "...under certain circumstances, there are some serious sins for which the cleansing of Christ does not operate, and the law of God is that men must then havetheir own blood shed to atone for their sins." It is generally thought that these "serious sins" are in the category of murder and adultery. However, this is not clearly defined in Mormonism. Brigham Young[, a 33rd degree Freemason,] saidthat "any man or woman, who violates the covenants made with their God will be required to pay the debt. The blood of Christ will never wipe that out, your ownblood must atone for it." In the same general vein, President J.M. Grant declared: "...If they are covenant breakers we need a place designated where we can shed their blood."[William Cooper: You see, folks, my prophecy on the Hour of the Time that humansacrifice would return to the world will be fulfilled unless we are smart enoughto stop it.]Besides murder and adultery, blood atonement was also advocated for stealing andtaking the name of the Lord in vain. Likewise, the penalty for marrying an African "under the Law of God is death on the spot. This will also be so."[William Cooper: The Mormon church is now, and has always been, a white Aryan racist organization, and until recently when threatened with lawsuits, they neverallowed any other race then white Caucasians to belong. That's right, folks, andif you are a black American who belongs to the Mormon church, you have really been fooled. All of the secret organizations of Mystery Babylon are racist organizations.](The 1978 decision opening the priesthood to blacks didn't change that law.) Blood atonement was also required for lying or "damning old Joe Smith or his religion..."[William Cooper: I guess that tells you what's going to happen to me. But what about other liars, like Bobo [sic] Gritz? Does it apply to him, or is he excusedif he is working in the furtherance of the Great Work or the Great Plan?]That most serious of all crimes, apostasy, bears the death penalty, and those who kill an apostate are saving his soul. This is a real concern of ex-Mormons. Many have received death threats and some have even been shot at [recently]. Brigham Young was very firm on this subject, as the following excerpt from one of hissermons as reported in [i]Journal of Discourses[/i] indicates: "I say, rather than that apostates should flourish here, I will unsheath my Bowie knife and conquer or die. (Great commotion erupted in the congregation, and a simultaneous burst of feeling, assenting to the declaration.)" [And he continues:] "Now, you nasty apostates, clear out, or judgment will be put to the line, and righteousnessto the plummet. [And you could hear] voices, generally [saying], 'go it, go it.'" [And he continues:] "If you say it is right, raise your hands." [All hands inthe congregation were raised. Then he continues:] "Let us call upon the Lord toassist us in this, and every good work."[You see, folks, the] doctrine of "blood atonement" was practiced in Utah priorto statehood, until the Mormon leadership realized that they must obey federal laws or have them enforced by the United States Army.
