A dirty little secret
One thing that is not often mentioned is that the "Mormons", who call themselves the "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints", is commonly considered a cult. We are generally too polite to dwell on that fact. The church tries very hard to look normal and mainstream to the outside world. That the group that got into trouble in El Dorado was doing is probably just what was common practice in the latter 19th Century in Utah. Is that about right?
