Rachel Jeffs on life after polygamy and why she testified against the Blackmores
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!

Blackmore’s Constitutional Challenge Hearing to start November 7th–Bramham
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. And he is challenging that law starting Tuesday in a Cranbrook courtroom in the hope that his conviction on one count of polygamy will be stayed, the trial declared an abuse of process, or an order is granted to stop any further...
Historian digs into the hidden world of Mormon finances
The real irony lies in the last paragraph. Most Mormons cannot AFFORD to shop at a luxury mall built with their tithing donations!

Records reveal how Mormons use U.S. contributions to further work overseas
Just before I left this horrible cult (yes, I can call it a cult because I believe it is one!!) I asked where did all that money go? the book “The Mormon Corporate Empire” came out at the time I left and divorced out. At that time $12.5 M per month was pouring into the Mormon coffers while its members lived by the creed “enough for our needs” as taught in the temple. I was told I could be excommunicated for even asking the question! I hope all the men who made my life a living hell during that time...
“Prophet” Fred King out of jail
Yes, I believe Carol Christie may be correct when she says he’ll take up where he left off because he still has followers. For the many, many years I’ve studied cult mentality; and, was a member of the largest cult in the world (now considered a “religion”); I still do not understand what clicks in the mind to make people become followers of a certain person or creed that controls their lives. I do know the absolute mental hell of leaving a cult because once your mind has been set on the thought processes of the cult, it never leaves...

Fred King out of Prison after one year of his 18-mo sentence!
My heart goes out to Carol Christie and all the victims of King’s cult which was a spin off of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, a church started by Joseph Smith’s widow after she refused to acknowledge Brigham Young and stayed behind with her sons when the “saints” went west. She believed the succession of the “prophet” should fall to her sons like royalty. NM Cult Leader Released From Jail Bayshore Broadcasting News Centre Chatsworth | by Kevin Bernard Chatsworth cult leader Fred King known as ‘The Prophet’ is out after one year. The former leader...
