Texas went in armed for good cause. This article shows as far back as two years ago they were alarmed about the FLDS head (now convicted "Prophet" Warren Jeffs) had not only talked about having former FLDS members murdered but was also having a crematorium constructed. See for yourselves, and by googling you can find lots of similar references on the "Blood Atonement" doctrine. Their "temple" complex (see photo) looks sicky to me, like a house of horrors.
In my opinion Watchtower's worst fanatics are ever bit as dangerous. Silentlambs.org notes:
In a press release dated October 15, 2007 the following was stated (by the Watchtower Society spokesperson),
At that timeSilentlambs pointed out over 3,500 Elders and Ministerial Servants had been reported as molesters to Silentlambs.
3,500/12,300 = 29% however some are not elders but ministerial servants so the percent of pedophile elders may be only 20% or one in five of whom maybe only one in twenty at most (that is an estimation of 5% or so) have also been reported to police and sentenced to prison.
PEDOPHILES' PARADISE. CRISIS OF PEDOPHILES IN AN AMERICAN RELIGION.
P.S. I have another email here and usually just read but thought most of you weren't aware of this other reason the FLDS is so dangerous. Rape and pedophilia commonly go hand in hand with secret murders among dangerous cults.
