Warren Jeffs is preparing to spend the rest of his life in prison. A jury in San Angelo, Texas, earlier this week made the decision to remove the 55-year-old leader of the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints, a polygamous blight on the social and religious landscape of America, from the streets of Texas and America for the rest of his natural life after convicting him of the rape of his 12-year-old "wife." The jury also gave Mr. Jeffs and additional twenty years behind bars for raping another of his wives, this one 15-years-old.
Warren Jeffs has at least seventy-eight "celestial" wives, of whom twenty-four are under age, and twelve are under the age of sixteen.
A recording of a group sex scene held in the baptismal font of his church was released earlier in the week. It revealed Jeffs having sex with five females, including one who was only thirteen and two who were reported to be his own sisters. He has also been accused of pulling families apart and assigning the girls to other men. His nephew reported that Uncle Warren raped him while serving as his church school principal.
It would appear that Warren Jeffs is not only a very sick pedophile, but he is also a sick, incestuous pedophile.
So how is his flock responding to their shepherd's conviction of serious sex offenses? Indignantly, that's how. They are supposedly constructing a 38-foot tall metal statue of Warren Jeffs that will have a place of honor at the church compound on the Utah/Arizona border. A graven image of a craven pervert.
One is left to wonder how any "religious" organization, no matter how fundamentalist, could condone the rape of children. Texas took more than 400 FLDS children into foster care in 2008, and was later ordered by the State Supreme Court to release them back to their parents. With Warren Jeffs safely locked away, things should be better for the youngsters, but if their parents and elders are out constructing a giant statue to honor a giant among child abusers, then clearly the children still are not safe.
If your God condones the rape of children, it is well past time to renounce the bastard!
