Mormons embrace social media to push back against official church teachings Religion News Service Kimberly Winston  | September 15, 2014   BERKELEY, Calif. (RNS) It was a gathering that would have been unthinkable just five years ago. On a cool summer evening, in a borrowed classroom overlooking San Francisco Bay, about 150 men and women gathered to screen a short documentary about a Mormon family whose 13-year-old son came out as gay. The Montgomerys, who accepted their son and his news, were ostracized by church members, some of whom refused to accept Communion distributed by the young man in church. Like many conservative…

Utah polygamist returns to a world without a definition of marriage   September 11, 2014 07:50 EST Anne Hendershott Father Dan Pattee, TOR Catholic World Report (blog)   After serving 25 years in state and federal prisons, Utah polygamist Addam Swapp was released from parole supervision last week. Incarcerated since 1988—at a time when marriage was defined as a union between one man and one woman—Swapp returns to a country that is now abandoning that definition. Convicted of orchestrating the 1988 bombing of the meetinghouse of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Marion, Utah, and implicated in the…

Federal Judges are appointed in the U.S.  I hope someone takes this court action to a higher authority to get it overturned.  I don’t care how many academies they have attended to get training, FLDS policemen follow the dictates of Warren Jeffs.  NM Judge will not boot cops in polygamous towns   It’s a rare win for the FLDS in a lawsuit in which the towns were hammered.   By Nate Carlisle The Salt Lake Tribune Sep 06 2014   A federal judge will not disband the police force in the polygamous towns of Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Ariz….

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.

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…

[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...

Ian’s article is an excellent summary of twenty years of events re Bountiful, but a generation in the Jeffs’ faction is only 14 years; and a generation now in the Blackmore faction is supposedly 16 years, so TWO generations of children have come forth in twenty years! Our greatest frustration…

Janet Heimlich’s book, Breaking Their Will is a must read if you want to understand how religious organizations/cults damage the development of their children. NM Children who grow up in religious cults face diffiulties not only during their childhood, but also after leaving the group. The British Psychological Society That…

“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…
