Former sister wife details 'constant state of fear' at FLDS ranch
It is not polygamy that destroys women any more than religion destroys society;
it is the "unrightoues dominion" of those who use the authority they are
given to lead and guide as a hammer to oppress. ". . . [T]hey have their
reward". This story is a powerful witness of that.
@jimmyjack , Your reference to the place called "The Place of
Broken Hearts" caught my eye. Where was this place in SLC? I googled the
place with no luck. Also it was relatively easy for Polygamist Wives
to divorce their husbands. It wasn't so easy for the Polygamist men to
divorce their wives. The journals of women in the "14th Ward" probably
one of the wealthiest wards in SLC, and probably had the highest or at least a
very high percentage of Polygamist families during Pioneer times, doesn't
support your opinion. JimmyJack. Your further thoughts are welcomed and
Her story sounds like conditions in Salt Lake City in the 1800s. One woman
described polygamy as "killing the woman, or everything good inside her.
There was a cemetery outside the city walls called "The Place of Broken
Hearts" where women who died young from the effects of polygamy were buried.
Polygamy is a terrible, terrible thing.
Wow. Powerful story. If the LDS Church hadn't of had the 1890 Maniesto, I
wonder where Utah would be? Any Historians care to hazard a guess?
You go, Girl.
