Bountiful turned teen off faith PHILIP RAPHAEL / RICHMOND NEWS APRIL 26, 2016 Walt Disney’s movies were fine. Elvis flicks — strictly forbidden. Those were the kind of restrictions Maggie Rayner grew up with in her family during the 1950s in Richmond. It was a life full of rigid rules that adhered to the Mormon faith. Except the line was drawn at polygamy. “Don’t feel, don’t question. Just obey. That’s the way it was in our family,” says Rayner, who has written a book, In Polygamy’s Shadow: From a Mormon Childhood to a Life of Choice, to explain the ordeal…

The differences between polyamory and polygamy are a piece of paper and the claim to a “religious belief” that commands the practice of polygamy. Polyamory is a free for all with groups of men and women sharing intimacies. “Consensual” co-habitation. The piece of paper in religious polygamy is a marriage certificate, not supplied by the state for second, third, fourth, etc. wives but made up by the religious leaders (men). John Llewellyn wrote about memes attached to the consciousness of men born of generations of polygamy. I respect John for all he has done to bring the polygamy problem forward,…

One reason I strongly protested my granddaughter being sent to Indonesia for her mission was that there are horror stories about young women being raped on their missions and being told to keep quiet about it.

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…

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…
