“And the regulations of the government were destroyed, because of the secret combination of the friends and kindreds of those who murdered the prophets…notwithstanding they [the tribes] were not a righteous people, yet they were united in the hatred of those who had entered into a covenant to destroy the government.” (Mormon, 3 Nephi, Book of Mormon, 7:6,11.)
