All I can do is wish Rachel Jeffs the very best success with the rest of her life. If Trudeau is serious about building affordable housing, he should look at victims of cults like Rachel and her young family. Attempting to get funding for these victims in Canada turned out to be a cesspool of paperwork and negative replies. There always appeared to be someone in the mix of authority who had religious bias and put a NO stamp on everything. It caused me and those working with me great frustration and yes, burnout!

Daphne Bramham: Court to hear polygamist Winston Blackmore’s constitutional challenge Vancouver Sun DAPHNE BRAMHAM November 5, 2017 In 2011, the B.C. Supreme Court ruled that Canada’s anti-polygamy law was valid and “demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.” But Canada’s best-known polygamist Winston Blackmore — a man with at least 24 wives and 149 children — disagrees.

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…

You’ll have to get a cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate or Postum to digest this article.  Excellent research; and, of course, I want to buy the book.    Although, this material is from diaries of long ago, the diaries of today’s polygamous wives read the same as illustrated in Keep…

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…
