Zach Wilson’s recent comment on the Mormonism probably should not have been shared with anyone. However, someone leaked the video and now it’s making waves across the internet.

Earlier this month, the New York Jets’ second-year quarterback spoke with Deseret News and shared a behind-the-scenes look at how he got to where he is today. In the interview, Wilson discussed his relationship with faith.

Specifically, he spoke about the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which is often better known as LDS or the Mormon church. While he considers himself “a Mormon, an LDS Church member, for sure” and was baptized a member of the church as a child, Wilson isn’t “comfortable” being a representative for the church.

“It is not something I am against, it is just that I didn’t grow up active in the church,” he said. “I’m not that ‘poster boy’ for the church. … I was never really a churchgoer my whole life, just not involved much in it. My family and I hold the same morals and values that the church does, for sure, but I really didn’t know a lot about the teaching and stuff until I got to BYU.”

Not long thereafter, a video of Zach Wilson cracking a joke about the LDS church and its founder Joseph Smith surfaced on TikTok. Since then, it has gone viral.

Wilson can be seen gearing up to take a tee shot on the golf course. In the background, somebody (it is unclear as to who it is) brings up Smith.

“You throw like Joseph Smith is telling you plays from the sidelines,” said person can be heard saying.

In response, Wilson cracks a joke about Smith and his polygamy.

Polygamy, the practice or custom of having more than one wife or husband at the same time, was practiced by leaders of the LDS church for more than half of the 19th century. It was also practiced publicly by about 25% of LDS families from 1852 to 1890.

Today, while various denominations of fundamentalist Mormonism continue to practice polygamy, the church has abandoned the practice of a plural marriage and most families do not participate in the practice. Wilson’s mother and father, for example, practice monogamy.

Smith, however, did not. He is believed to have had as many as 40 wives, which led Wilson to make a joke about his sexually active lifestyle.

In actuality, the joke is hilarious. It makes Wilson a lot more relatable and likable because his quip about Smith is very funny. But… it probably shouldn’t have made its way around and the video never should have been shared with anyone.
