Garfield in his inaugural address says, "The Mormon Church not only offends the moral sense of manhood by sanctioning polygamy, but prevents the administration of justice through ordinary instrumentalities of law" After Garfield's assassination, his successor, Chester A. Arthur, proclaims polygamy "this odious crime, so revolting to the moral and religious sense of Christendom."
