To Ms Molli
In answer to your question: I met the Sister Wives guy last week (ran into him at the LDS visitor ctr in Independence just by coincidence.)He is NOT a part of Warren Jeffs group and in fact hopes to portray on the show that they are not the kind of people who are in Jeff's organization. I get the impression that "fundamentalist Mormon" is more a type of religion than a specific organization.

Ms. Molli,

I recall the Church of the First Born, also the Short Creek settlement had some notoriety for a time. Since the 1890 Manifesto there's been a dozen or so splinter groups practicing polygamy led by their own prophets. The FLDS is the main one that makes headlines these days because of Warren Jeffs.

Fundamentalist is just another term for polygamist. Not all fundamentalists follow Jeffs there are even some that practice it on their own just like in "Big Love" and "Sister Wives" They have no prophets they bow down to.

Leave it to someone here to take things one step even further, but in the opposite extreme.

I have met several of these good, honest, hardworking men and can't imagine how in the world they would possibly agree to follow such a demented nut who comes up with such a idea as this. Time to elect a new leader.

The man is forced to lead an unhappy, celibate life, therefore he must make sure that all of his followers are as unhappy as he is, even the children.

A true Prophet of God leads with love. The Lord did not give the Isrealites the thousand commandments, he gave them 10. When Jesus Christ was upon the earth, he was asked what is the greatest commandment? Just 2,Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart might, MIND, and strength, the second is like unto it, Love they neighbor as thyself. God wants us to think for ourselves. Live our own lives according to the dictates of our own consience.

I believe Warren Jeffs is a prophet, the God he worships is not the God of Heaven. The evil edicts he keeps pronouncing upon his followers are just like Satan is toying with them to see what kinds of depraved things he can get them to do next. These people need to use their God given minds and consiences.

Koolaid indeed.
