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! NM OPINION On Rob Porter, Mormonism, and siding with the abuser Religion News Service By Jana Riess | February 9, 2018 (RNS) — I’m angry, but I’m...
They just won’t follow a woman mayor!
AMERICA Public Officials In Town With Polygamous Sect Resign After Elections NPR February 12, 2018 SARAH VENTRE Political turmoil in the communities of Colorado City, Ariz., and Hildale, Utah, have resulted in the resignations of nearly a dozen city and utility board employees. The communities are the longtime home of a polygamous sect, the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which has been the target of state and federal investigations and lawsuits. FLDS leader Warren Jeffs is serving a life sentence for sexual assault of children. The resignations follow the historic election last year of non-FLDS followers...
A Mormon Woman Writes on the agony of Polygamy!
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...
New Stats on Polygamy in Third World Countries
If you do not think polygamy is harmful, please read the following. NM The perils of polygamy The link between polygamy and war Plural marriage, bred of inequality, begets violence The Economist Print edition | Christmas Specials Dec 19th 2017| CAIRO, LAHORE AND WAU IT IS a truth universally acknowledged, or at least widely accepted in South Sudan, that a man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of many wives.

Blackmore set to launch charter challenge Bountiful polygamist leader back in Cranbrook Supreme Court next week. Columbia Valley Pioneer TREVOR CRAWLEY Dec. 7, 2017 The ongoing legal battle of a fundamentalist polygamist leader is heading back to Cranbrook Supreme Court next week.

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! NM Daphne Bramham: Rachel Jeffs on...
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...

NM Historian digs into the hidden world of Mormon finances, shows how church went from losing money to making money — lots of it Salt Lake Tribune By Peggy Fletcher Stack October 14, 2017 Some Mormons — and plenty of others — were appalled to witness their church build a $1.5 billion mall in downtown Salt Lake City and hear their prophet proclaim, “Let’s go shopping.” Isn’t religion, they argued, supposed to be about feeding the hungry...
Sister Wives sex scandal bru-ha-ha!
Sex abuse allegations have rocked the polygamous church of ‘Sister Wives,’ causing rift from Utah to Montana Some dissidents are worshipping in the new ‘Second Ward.’ Salt Lake Tribune By Nate Carlisle October 21, 2017 Pinesdale, Mont. • Kimberly Herbert wondered if she would be allowed to marry in the temple. She had dated a boy her age off and on for years. They discussed getting married. Then, in fall 2014, a dispute erupted in their church — the Apostolic United Brethren, a so-called Mormon fundamentalist group that believes in polygamy.
