Cell-O-Steel Kingdom

12 03 2010

Meet Merrill Leroy Jessop.  Mr. Jessop is a member of the polygamist cult the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or FLDS. Merrill Leroy Jessop is one of 12 [the Dirty Dozen] who were charged with child sexual assault as a result of evidence gathered during the raid on the Yearning For Zion ranch in Texas.

His trial began Monday. He is #4  of the 12 cases in the trial lineup.  Merrill Leroy Jessop, 35, is charged with a  first-degree felony,  punishable by five to 99 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.

Following are the criminal penalties handed out to the first 3:

Raymond Merril Jessop was tried over 12 days on charges of sexual assault. The jury returned a guilty verdict and imposed a sentence of 10 years in prison and an $8,000 fine.

Allan Eugene Keate was sentenced to 33 years in Texas state prison after the jury deliberated for only five hours. He was found guilty on a charge of sexual abuse of a child.

Michael George Emack pled no contest to sexual assault charges and was sentenced to seven years in prison. This came about because he married a 16-year-old at YFZ Ranch on August 5, 2004. She would give birth to a son less than a year later.

Just 8 trials to go, including Dr. Lloyd Hammon Barlow, the cult’s doctor who is charged with failure to report the child sexual abuse, and the leader of the FLDS, Warren S. Jeffs. 

To learn more about the FLDS go here or here.

Thank you Texas for having the guts to go where Utah and Arizona would not. After 150 years of these Mormons practicing the ‘lots of young chicks’ doctrine to create a Celestial Kingdom, Texas has stepped up to prosecute these crimes and human rights violations.  The new FLDS compound: The Cell O Steel Kingdom.

The FLDS have a new leader.   Wendell Nielsen, 69, has been appointed as President of the FLDS.  He will take the place of Warren S. Jeffs who, as you know, is serving a long prison sentence  for practicing  his ‘lots of young chicks doctrine.’  

Wendell Nielsen was first counselor to Jeffs, as well as to his father Rulon T. Jeffs, who was the faith’s president until his death in September 2002.  Nielsen started Western Precision, a high-tech machining company now located in Nevada, and numerous other businesses. Nielsen, lives at the Yearning For Zion Ranch in Eldorado, Texas and is said to have 21 wives, currently

Now, if that’s not enough for him to worry about, here’s more. Nielsen is one of the 13 men with pending criminal charges resulting from the raid on the Yearning For Zion ranch.

 Texas authorities have charged Nielsen with three counts of bigamy based on evidence found at the ranch during a 2008 investigation. The charges are related to Nielsen’s spiritual marriages to three women. Nielsen also allegedly witnessed other marriages that are the subject of criminal charges in Texas, including at least one involving one of his underage daughters.

So, Uncle Wendell, as his followers will call him, might not be president for long.

Also, it  is unclear what status Jeffs now holds. It is likely he remains the sect’s prophet, a position the FLDS consider appointed by Jeffs God. But could this be the beginning of the end for the ‘one man rule?’

Religious Freedom or Creeptacular Pervball

10 01 2010

Meet  Warren Steed Jeffs. 

Uncle Warren, as his followers call him,  is the self-proclaimed prophet of the FLDS church.  The FLDS follow the original beliefs and teachings of the Book of Mormon and LDS church.  To clarify, that means the FLDS still practice polygamy.

Warren Jeffs has gotten into some serious legal trouble because of his church practices.  Now, the FLDS would tell you, the church and their prophet are being persecuted for religious beliefs. FLDS believe  they have a right  to practice their religion, and that includes their polygamy. .

But are Warren Jeff’s legal problems about religion and polygamy? 

Warren Jeffs is currently being held in an Arizona jail awaiting trial.  Jeffs was transfered there from the  Utah State prison, where he is serving a 10 year sentence on his 2007  felony conviction.  Once his Arizona trial is over, Jeffs will be transfered to Texas to face more criminal charges based on evidence located during the 2008 raid on the FLDS compound, the  YFZ  ranch.

 But Warren Jeffs has never been charged with polygamy. 

The charges against Jeffs, are for marrying underage girls, and lots of them, to himself and to other FLDS men.  Seems the FLDS practice the – “lots of young chicks  doctrine.”  

We give you Exhibit 2 & 3,   in the case of  State of   Texas vs. Warren S. Jeffs.    

 

Exhibit 3

This is the happy couple on their  ‘First Anniversary’

 Exhibit 2  – Wedding Day photo. another child bride for Warren.  

 

This is not photoshop.  Warren Jeff’s’  brides were 12 & 13. Each girl had a baby within one year. The DNA tested out to show Warren Jeffs as babydaddy.  

These are two of many marriages performed at the YFZ ranch while Warren was still on the  FBI’s  ’10 Most Wanted’ list. 

Now, we think Warren Jeffs is definitely a false prophet. But regardless of what form of Twistianity” he preaches, we think it is his criminal actions that are of issue. While overdue,  some 175  years, we’re glad the government has finally stepped up to prosecute these crimes and criminals. But will it stop the FLDS from the delusion of  thinking  they can do this shiz and hide it behind some cloak of  religious freedom?   While Warren Jeffs is in jail, and probably always will be,  his followers still think of him as their prophet, so  business as usual.

But our question is  – Freedom of religion  or  creeptacularly pervball?
