BYU New Name & New Motto

The name, Brigham Young is getting old in more ways than one. Since the Lord's university has many nick names already, The Salamander Society wants to further this noble cause. Why was the school named after Brigham Young instead of Joseph Smith? If the Church is serious about BYU being a Divine institution, why not have some form of divinity in the name?

Comments Section

I'm an apostate as well but I'm quite sure that not ONE of the posters here will do anything nearly as significant as what Brigham Young accomplished in his lifetime. That includes the lefty cartoonist. No, my great-great-grand aunt Emily Dow Partridge Young did not think much of him in his later years, but I'm quite sure we know at least as much about the first territorial Governor of Utah as the pompous cartoonist that did not belong to this family. I received a splendid education at BYU. Thank you Brigham Young! Wish you hadn't made the wrong call during the Mormon War though, as that land we bought for $77,000 in California in 1851 that you had us sell is now worth about $2 billion - 06/26/2009 - Edward Partidge Smith Lyman

Awesome!!!! Mormons can be some of the most hard-headed people imaginable. I once argued with a dyed-in-the-wool Mormon for six straight hours. By arguements end he wouldn't concede the smallest point despite the fact that he had demonstrated his almost complete ignorance at nearly every turn. - 12/14/2008 - gurumagoo

Its funny that the faggots on here making fun of mormons probably never went to college. I dont care what church you go to or if you dont go at all. Your all losers to have created a site like this. - 11/28/2007 - everyone

A Word From An Official Representative of Brigham Young - 04/28/1999

I would just like to say that the reason the school was named after him, is because he founded it...I am his great-great-great granddaughter and I find it disgusting that you would want to rename his school.

07/13/2003 - Public Note to Emily1985

Just because you are descended from Brigham Young doesn't mean you knew very much about him. His relationships with most of his wives was not good. For instance eleven of them divorced him and after he died most of the rest were left in poverty with no way to support themselves. It is hard for me to see how these circumstances would facilitate the transmission of accurate information to later generations.

And for the record, the university that Brigham Young set up in 1849 right after entering the valley of the Great Salt Lake, (which was really a transplantation of the fledgling University of Nauvoo) was later moved up on the bench near what became Fort Douglas is none other than THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH!

The church set up several dozen academies around the state beginning in the later years of Brigham's life and many more after his death. These were not universities but more like high schools or technical colleges. Each was named after Bro. Brigham to honor him and their geographic location, such as the Brigham Young Academy at Prove, the Brigham Young Academy at Logan, etc.

During the "persecution" of the church by the federal government in the 1880's for polygamy the church lost control over most of its property including their best university in Salt Lake and some of these academies. They were taken away from church control and administrated by others, who at times were simply to good members of the local area, other times friendly non-mormons and rarely unfriendly people. Most of the old academies morphed into local high schools such as Logan High School which still uses a few of the old academy buildings.

In the early part of the 1900's the church decided to move away from trying to run many small academies to concentrating their efforts on one larger educational institution. They selected the old Brigham Young Academy in Provo and began to build it into their flagship institute of higher learning. The academy in Rexburg refused to be dissolved and was stubborn enough and far enough away from Salt Lake that it survived as Ricks College and recently was made into BYU-Idaho. When the first generation of people educated in Utah went back east in large numbers for advanced degrees, most of them left the church. They are known in church history as "the lost generation," and included many of the church leaders' children. This provided even more motivation to build up BYU.

But until the salad days of Earnest Wilkinson (1960's), BYU was still in the shadow of the University of Utah. This is why most of the past General Authorities with college degrees, including Gordon B. Hinckley were educated at Utah and not at BYU. Wilkinson convinced fiscally conservative (tight fisted and nearly broke) church leaders such as Joseph Fielding Smith to pony up the money and even more miraculously he convinced highly regarded and educated Mormon professionals to come and teach at BYU when it was anything but a priviledge to do so. It wasn't until the 1970's that BYU was considered a reasonable alternative to the University of Utah for Mormon youth with any academic potential. Don't folks at BYU wonder why today the church often selects a person to be the President of BYU who is from the University of Utah? Cecil Samuelson is the most recent Utah man to hold this honor.

In Provo last time I visited, I saw an obnoxious T-shirt slogan. It said: " BYU- THE University of Utah." In fact the opposite is true. The University of Utah is the historical Brigham Young University. If Bro. Brigham were to rise from his grave and attend a BYU-Utah football game, he'd probably be wearing red.

I think Ezra Taft Bnson had a word for this attitude that is so characteristic of much of the clueless BYU studentbody: PRIDE. And Benson said, Emily my dear, that y'all are on the road to hell because of it. - 07/13/2003 - anon

10/26/1999 - anon

Note to Emily: Being the great-great-great (ad nauseum) whatever of Brigham Young is not exactly a unique title. With as many offspring as he had, is it any wonder that half the state of Utah doesnt preface their name with that connection.

BYU News Flash

By Brigham Smith - Latest In Exalted Stories (LIES)

Stung by the recent vandalism of its main entrance sign by an Antarctia-bound Missionary, Mormon leaders have decided to change the name of Ricks College to BYU North.

Said Mr. B. Packer of the change, "Just see if those D---- intellectuals can satirize the good name of BYU."

In an unrelated story, a spokesman for Mr Packer claimed that he has still not received his subscription to "The Salamander Society".
