Polygamous Mormon cult members believe the apocalypse is coming with release of leader Warren Jeffs

But if a certain group of polygamous religious extremists in a lonely corner of southern Utah are to be believed, this Wednesday the walls will split open and fall when one of their leaders, Lyle Jeffs, appears before the judge in a major fraud case, according to former followers of his sect. Simultaneously, an earthquake will apparently cause the walls of a prison in Texas to crumble and Lyle’s brother, Warren Jeffs, the group’s “prophet” and supreme leader, will also walk free – despite the fact he has been serving a sentence of life plus 20 years in that state since 2011, convicted of having sex with underage girls as young as 12 that he took as polygamous wives.


Now this is some serious doom Porn.....




By divine coincidence, perhaps, Wednesday is 6 April, the date most Mormons – and the outlawed, rejected offshoot sect of that religion known as the Fundamentalist Latter-day Saints (FLDS) – proclaim is the actual birthday of Jesus Christ. “I am hearing from people inside the FLDS that on April 6 there is going to be a kind of apocalypse,” said Elissa Wall, who escaped from the repressive FLDS community after being forced by Warren Jeffs to marry her cousin when she was just 14. “It is prophesied.”



April 6th is fast approaching....I supposed I better get my affairs in order. I wonder if Glenn Beck is concerned?

I hope I can get off work to party and watch the apocalypse.

Didn't the world already ended in 2000 and 2012?

I am pretty sure there will be no earth-shattering kaboom, but if there is, I'm not all that worried.

The FLDS is NOT Mormon.

They are an offshoot, but they are not Mormon.

They are not a recognized religion.

I have a major dentists appointment (teeth pulled, fitting for my partial) on April 12th.

Looks like I might luck out!

Loon, he is a loon. He enjoyed his time in jail in special custody and reportedly masturbates 17 times a day in front of his monitoring camera. Molested his nephew and sapped millions from the community. He is a POS and would not be surprised to hear of his death in the near future.

I want him to admit guilt, and publicly state child molestation is wrong, and having child brides is wrong. I would make his release contingent upon these comments. Maybe even make him take a polygraph to see if he means it.

The rest of the story is silly.

No. You would not be correct. The FLDS church is not considered "Mormonism" as the phrase is commonly used. The thread title (and I'm assuming the article title as well--I didn't read it because Raw Story is a humanist rag) is a deliberate and dishonest attempt to confuse contemporary "Mormonism" with the FLDS cult.

You would be mistaken. Romney is a member of the LDS. This is the FLDS.

Maybe he will run for President.

Many Christians think that Mormonism in its entirety is a cult. Romney is a Mormon, so....

Some religious people believe that dark skinned people 'bear the mark of Cain' which also explains why some consider Obama the anti-Christ. Religion can cause people to believe some scary stuff.

What are they? A few hundred people?

As long as they are condemning dangerous cults, how about RawStory doing critical a story about the billion member apocalyptic cult led by a polygamist who raped a nine year old?

A real threat that is thousands of times worse hardly ever gets the criticism it deserves, especially at far left propaganda sights like rawstory.

Islam cannot be blamed on "white western patriarchy", so it gets a pass on all the atrocious things done in its name. Anything that even remotely smacks of Christianity, on the other hand...



The hypocrisy is stunning. And they have to see it. I refuse to believe they're too ignorant to realize it.

It's that they just don't care. They want to s# on Christianity any way they can, regardless of whether they can maintain ideological consistency in the process.

It's shameless.

Some religious black and brown people believe that caucasians are the "white devil" and that all white people must be killed because they can not be redeemed.

That's ironic, this dudes cult believes god made the black brown peoples skin black because their ancestors betrayed god. I WONT link to the sources of this but in a philosophy class (comparative religion) I had ran into this character upon study and to make my paper I had to read a lot of disgusting and distorted views from people like him and followers alike. Another that stood out was discussing in depth Applewhites devotion to heavens gate as he probably truly believed his own BS by having his penis surgically removed along with other male followers versus ole warren here that rode Harleys cross country to "promote" the church.

This cult is about as "mormon" as Westboro Baptist is "baptist." In other words, they share the name and maybe some particulars of doctrine and practice but are so far from the mainstream of the practice that the two are like a hyrax and an elephant - related but that's about as far as it goes.
