I hope he rots there

Warren Jeffs sentenced to 10 years in the federal slammer.

Jeffs, 51, was convicted of rape as an accomplice for his role in the marriage of a 14-year-old follower and her 19-year-old cousin in 2001. The two felony counts each carried a punishment of five years to life.

It’s too bad it’s not more.  Warren Jeffs is a scumbag of the first order – someone who manipulates people’s (admittedly misguided) religious beliefs for his own person and sexual gain.

  1. Actually, he got 5 years to life on both charges, I doubt that he’ll be paroled until at least 25 years of his sentence has gone by.

  2. The ugliness of polygamy doesn’t stop with the rape of the young girls.

    Consider the fate of the boys as they mature. The old farts at the top don’t want the young bucks around as competition. Where happens to them? These boys don’t disappear into thin air.

    By some accounts, they are routinely taken to Las Vegas and dropped off on street corners with barely an 8th grade education and few or no resources to survive. I don’t know the actual answer but this is the best case scenario I can imagine.

  3. For anyone interested in an in-depth, critical look at the nature and dangers of Fundamental Mormonism, you should read “Under the Banner of Heaven”. It’s a great book.
