While that may be an actual daguerreotype of Joseph Smith, the Saints know Joseph looked like that handsome blond guy from the films and that he glowed in the dark.

Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

Whoever commissioned that painting should get their money back.

Provided the photo is of JS and not... an unholy union of the Marlboro Man and Jeffrey Epstein?

To say this triggers TBM is an understatement, but at some point people need to look at that photo and be OK with it.

i mean if it's from God, be PROUD that Joseph had the balls to marry two 14 year olds... don't get upset when people point it out.

If it was the present day, Helen Mar might be ready to start her sophomore year of high school in September.

Maybe Heber would let Joseph pick her up at the church parking lot when she gets dropped off after Girls Camp.

When I saw that photo, I had to look up David Miscaviage.

Something about the JS look reminded me of Scientology
