this podcast from FAIR is borrowed from KSL radio using a program with Martin Tanner discussing fundamentalist groups continued use of polygamy. He states that the main reason he sees Bro. Wooley's communicated revelation from the Lord or Joseph Smith to John Taylor as suspect is the lack of the revelation being submitted for common consent to the general membership.
My thought on this is -
"One issue I have with this and I am coming from a faithful perspective. When Joseph institues polygamy to begin with in 1830′s with Fanny Alger and others to follow, he never presents this doctrine or it’s institution to the general membership for their commen consent. In fact he doesn’t even present it to the twelve as a whole for their sustaining vote. So there is presidence of establishing doctrine and revelation without a vote of common consent. I look forward to replies from others on how one takes into account this fact."
