The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints (FLDS), which broke away from the Morman church, practices polygamy and believes a man
must marry at least three women to go to heaven. Up to 1,000 Teenage boys have been seperated from thier parents, thrown out of communities, dumped
on the side of the road in Utah and Arizona, and told they will never go to heaven or see thier families again. So that more women are availible to
the older men to marry.
Up to 1,000 teenage boys have been seperated from thier parents and thrown out of thier communities by a polygamous sect to make more young women
available for older men, Utah officals claim.
Man of these "Lost boys", some as young as 13, have simply been dumped on the side of the road in Arizona and Utah, by the leaders of the
Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FLDS, and told they will never see thier families again or go into heaven
The 10,000-strong FLDS, which broke away from the Mormon church in 1890 when the mainstream faith disavowed polygamy, believes a man must marry at
least three women to go to heaven. The sect appeared to be in turmoil yesturday, after it's assets were frozen last week and a warrent was issued in
Arizona on Friday for the arrest of its autocratic leader, Warren Jeffs, for arranging a wedding between an underage girl and a 28-year-old man who
was already married.

I am a Christian, and I am appauled at this revolting story. It jsut goes to show how a cult taht starts out with questionable rules can cause so
many problems later on. In the article an FLDS offcial said they "Lost boys" were delinquents who refused to follow the sects rules. I think making
them homeless and seperating them from thier families for an underage child is far to harsh of a sentance.
It is also interesting to note how this story is not being covered by any Media orginizations in the United states. Is the presidential address too
important to have pre-empted by a bad story reguading religion
