    Practically every religion has a doomsday prophecy as far as Jesus' return to earth; this one just happens to be a bit more specific as to a date. Better than most religions, which just keep people hanging on for ages and ages. Both have the same outcomes: Nothing happens!

    Wow! I hope these people aren't getting ready to drink the coolaid!

    An FLDS article without any FLDS sources? How is this objective? How do we know that the stores are even closed?

    Look at all the false stories about the FLDS - being on welfare, killing infants, stockpiling weapons of mass destruction - all turned out to be false. This could be just another hatchet job by Wyler and Bower to get more attention.

    Meanwhile, the real issue is the attempt by a government entity to take over a religious trust. Anyone who worries about Obama destroying religious liberty should take a look at the illegal actions of the state to take over the FLDS trust.

    Avoiding turnips seems like good advice. As for the rest, not so much.

    How is it that we have to watch this slow moving train until it wrecks, Jonestown style? Do we have to let this religious prison camp exist on our fringes?

    Well great, so when it doesn't happen it has to put some doubt in their minds right? Probably not though. He'll probably say they weren't worthy enough to be lifted up yet....

    Have any of you ever been to this town. Good people who are trying to do what is right. It may seem odd to us but to them it's how they live. I would hope people would just leave them alone. That is all they want, to be left alone.

    How is Jeffs still terrorizing his "followers" from prison?! Can't anyone stifle him, or help these poor people open their eyes?

    On the other hand, he may be on to something by banning the consumption of turnips.
