This article is just a little bit off the mark.  Just because the LDS have not held demonstrations against the musical “The Book of Mormon” does not mean they are free speech advocates.  In Mormon philosophy, any type of expose on their religion is “good.”  It brings Mormons to the forefront and causes people to talk about them. But, you do not write about the LDS religion with critical ink and not suffer the consequences.  From early times, Joseph Smith was not put in jail because of his beliefs, he was arrested and charged because he orchestrated the burning of…

Now this I am very, very interested in.  I spent 20 minutes on the phone last fall with a bureaucratic underling in the Alberta Conservative government after I had written to the Alberta Human Resources department about what I knew re child slave labour in Alberta FLDS logging camps OVER A YEAR EARLIER!  This sarcastic upstart told me that if they go looking for FLDS slave labour then they would have to investigate Hutterites and Mennonites.  And, he said that as long as “they are all related and giving permission for the kids to work, there was nothing he would…

Life After FLDS: Former Members Fight for Child Custody After Leaving Polygamist Sect May 8, 2015 ABC News By DAN HARRIS, HARRY PHILLIPS, CARRIE COOK, ALEXA VALIENTE and LAUREN EFFRON DAN HARRIS Anchor, ‘Good Morning America’ Weekend Edition LAUREN EFFRON via 20/20 Watch the full story on ABC News’ “20/20″ TONIGHT at 10 p.m. ET. Along the border between Utah and Arizona is a sort of alternate universe the locals call, “The Creek.” This is the home base of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, which dominates the twin towns of Colorado City, Arizona, and Hildale, Utah. Ancestors of the…

C.M. Katas has been a valuable member and contributor to Stop Polygamy in Canada Society for years.  Her story was aired on the History Channel in Canada called “Predator Prophet.”  Last year she celebrated a real wedding and married a man who truly loves and respects her, as she does him.  Her success story is like no other for survivors of polygamy.  She has authored the following paper.  I am proud to have her as a colleague in this journey of advocating for women and children, young men and boys of polygamy.

Fawn Brodie’s book No Man Knows My History: The Story of Joseph Smith was censored by the LDS as a book of lies about the founder of Mormonism.  Emma Smith was so incensed over her husband’s philandering, she took her children and moved across the street in Nauvoo, Il.  That’s…

The question of to leave or not to leave is discussed by many LDS members in the following article.  Of course, this is in Utah.  There are many groups of active to inactive Mormons and different types of members just as there are in any other large organized religion.  This…

Daphne Bramham and the Vancouver Sun has been second to none in their research on the origins of Bountiful.  And the redacted list of underaged girls trafficked for sex by the FLDS was sent to me by a social worker working on the case in Texas when they put Jeffs…

I received a faxed copy of this article today.  When I went to the Creston Valley Advance to find the article, strangely it was deleted from the paper’s archives.  BUT it is out there all over the internet!  HOORAY!  HURRAH!!  It looks like the young people will be able to say…

I am very happy and proud to publish this position paper on our blog. http://ccmw.com/position-statement-on-polygamy-in-the-quran-in-canada/ Given the freshness of the Quebec Charter of Values banning the wearing of religious symbolism in public sector positions, we have been discussing how we feel about Quebec’s move. Our opinions are as varied as…

[I am posting this because I was shunned miserably when I first left the Mormon church. People I had known for years, had babysat for, had taken loaves of homemade bread and buckets of chicken soup to their homes when there was sickness would fold their arms and walk to…

“Our Girls” has become “the world’s girls” as more and more people speak out. The last sentence in this news report brought tears to my eyes. A father speaking out for the safety of his daughter. Whereas these fathers are demonstrating and pleading to get their girls back from the despot kidnappers; here in “peaceful” Canada, it was the “fathers” (if one can call them that!) who trafficked their young teen daughters down to the States from Bountiful to be forced into marriage to older FLDS men. The authorities who have the power to prosecute the child-trafficking polygamists of Bountiful…

Canadians have been asked to weigh in on the conversation re the 30th anniversary of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, April 17, 2012. There is an ad with a young woman extolling sec. 15 of the Charter guaranteeing women’s equality rights with men in Canada. Those are very pretty words on paper, BUT the truth of the matter is that women still receive less pay for work of equal value in Canada.  And, women are still forced into patriarchal harems in Canada. I am curious to know how informed the young woman in this ad is regarding a…

(I just sent this message to the Canadian RCMP investigating Bountiful) I have just received word that the FLDS are taking children as young as a year old without their mothers knowing where they are going!  I’m told some mothers are going with their babies, but not all.  They could be trafficking babies out of Bountiful. I’ve asked my contact if he’ll speak to the Canadian RCMP.  I’m waiting for a reply from him. All border patrols should be alerted! I’ve spent hours and hours on this issue in the last few days.   How frustrating to know about this and…
