Jail time sought for convicted polygamists
Prosecutor wants jail time for two men in B.C. polygamy case THE GLOBE AND MAIL GEMMA KARSTENS-SMITH CRANBROOK, B.C. THE CANADIAN PRESS MAY 15, 2018 JEFF MCINTOSH/THE GLOBE AND MAIL Two men convicted of practising polygamy in British Columbia were motivated by “sincerely held religious beliefs,” but their sentences should include jail time to denounce their crimes and deter others, a special prosecutor said Tuesday. Peter Wilson recommended Winston Blackmore serve between 90 days and six months in jail and James Oler one month to 90 days, telling Justice Sheri Ann Donegan of the B.C. Supreme Court: “They are both,...

Mormon bishops are STILL dismissing women’s claims of abuse!!
It’s been thirty years since I kissed the Mormon Church good-bye and told them to kiss my ass in the process!! Mormon bishops are still dismissing women who go to them with claims of abuse. Worst of all, I was accused of “not respecting my husband’s priesthood” (something he threw in my face all the time). The Mormon Church can take its priesthood and shove it where the sun does not shine! UGLY!

I could not have said it better myself. I was mentally tortured by my ex-husband in my Mormon marriage that I would be the first wife in the eternities and I could rule over all his other subsidiary wives! I was dumbfounded when I learned of eternal polygamy in the Mormon faith. The Mormon missionaries told my mother “Oh, we don’t do that anymore.” LIARS! Every Christian believes in eternal life through Jesus Christ. That does not include eternal polygamy. Other Mormon women have been did-fellowshipped or excommunicated for their writings against main Mormon tenants. We will see what happens...
