It Is Better to Swear Like a Drunken Sailor than to Be a Hypocrite

There was one good man, Jesus. Many think a prophet must be a great deal better than any body else... I love that man better who swears a stream as long as my arm and [is attentive to] administering to the poor and dividing his substance, than the long smoothed faced hypocrites. 
I don’t want you to think I am very righteous, for I am not very righteous. God judgeth men according to the light he gives them.

(Joseph Smith, Sermon Delivered on 21 May 1843)
