Tower was built to observe FLDS members, not outsiders. Funny how clueless news
writers can be!
Why would anyone think the tower was built to watch outsiders? Outsiders like
who, desert coyotes? Deer and antelope? Jackrabbits? The tower was built to
monitor on-site prisoners and potential escapees. Duh.
Maybe it was a rocket but they forgot the engine?
maybe the plan was to build a tower high enough so that they could see Warren
Jeffs..just a thought
I think it is Jeffs way of keeping them under his control, don't forget,
only a few are able to father children now, so he needs to keep those 90% who
have to abstain busy. But I believe it is part of his brain washing approach,
work them hard, see the finished work and tear it down. That makes them feel
useless and it demeans them. We in the LDS church are taught to follow the
council of the prophets, but we also know without a doubt that something like
this would never happen.
I feel sad for them.The reason they can't "snap out of
it" is that by admitting Warren Jeffs is a nut, that would also be
admitting they, their faith, and everything they've come to believe to be
true is not.I can't imagine what it would be like to wake up
one day only to find out Pres Hinckley or Pres Monson were insanely wrong.That would be scarey if it was the only world you ever knew, and
had been told your whole life that the other 9 Billion people on this planet
were all evil monsters that were out to get you and should never to be
One day, we'll read the kool-aid headline...
Jeff realized that his tower of babel wasn't tall enough. He'll start
over again and make a taller one.
Warren's outfit needs to get a little off the wall with it. Call it
'burning tower', maybe.
