Unitarianism and Universalism

Unitarianism was a religions group among the wealthy persons. They believed that man was too good to be dammed. By the end of the eighteen century, many well educated New Englanders were embracing Unitarianism. The city of Boston was the center of this religious group. And by the end of nineteenth century a lot of churches adopted the name Unitarian.
Universalism also was a religious group attracting a different and much larger social group: wage labors and people of more humble means. They believed that god was too good to damn man.
Both religious groups were in fundamental agreement and remained relatively small in number.
The Mormons was a movement among poor farm folks. Its founder Joseph smith declared that he had seen God and Christ, both of whom had forgiven his sins and announced that all religious denominations were falls. In 1830 Joseph Smith began forming his church. Smith claimed to have found the lost section of the bible. The lost story of the ancient Hebrews who had inhabited the new world, it was no archeological evidence of this event. They migrated to west Now York but in the search of refuge from persecution and for the “promise land” moved to Ohio then to Missouri and finally in 1839 to the half built Mississippi river town of commerce Illinois witch they renamed Nauvoo. Smith excited outrage by practicing plural marriage, whereby he accumulated   two dozen wives and encouraged other Mormons leaders to do the same. Brigham Young succeeded Smith and was the president of the Mormons for thirty years.
