I hope this isn't too far off topic, but I wonder if people feel there are parallels between Warren Jeffs and his community and David Berg and the Family.

Both used their religious authority to sexually exploit their followers, both adults and children. I was never in the Family, but I have read a lot about it because I knew some people who joined. There seem to be many parallels to me. My feeling is that Jeffs is finally getting what he deserves, but unfortunately, David Berg never did.

just keep in mind the entire "selah" mentality is what hindered providing justice to get involved.

for a judge / jury to apply a sentence, from what I hear, something called proof, needs to be in hands. And if ppl remember, there was some time around the 90s when the purging had to be done in all the homesĀ“ libraries (I wonder why) Razz

- just ask uncle or aunty what was the subject inside all that was "purged" in those days, and what was done to those "pubs" (aka the Word)
