That is what she tells you! You fell for that lie. Ask her how many kids does she have and what night is her night for her husband to come by and "visit"?

FLDS is not LDS. It even states that in every article about this.
I don't believe that and its true...mormon is as mormon does..mormon is mormon...FDS=FLDS=LDS=LFDS=LD= LSD....all rolled up into one. One chruch...one name, one false prophet and many false teachings...just look at that compound in TX. What a shame!!!

This is disgusting, you all need to join my church, it’s called ‘Our Lady of Perpetual Indulgence’. We need to have many young women join preferable about 19 to 22 years old and with lots of daddy’s money, we already have enough males, we have me. Its not cheap spreading the word to all of the nitwits that fall for these phony churches. Mega church now there’s a great name. Suckers

You are wrong. I already ranted about it in the other thread. You're wrong.

I think it depends on the influence it had on others rather than the vision itself. Have you actually had a vision of a female president?
Yes, when I was little and President Kennedy said a woman could be President... I imagined it was me.
I WISH we had a woman president... I'm not necessarily advocating Hilary!*L*

They were brass plates. They were not only seen by Joseph Smith, but also by Oliver Cowdery, David Whitmer, Martin Harris, Christian Whitmer, Jacob Whitmer, Peter Whitmer, John Whitmer, Hiram Page, Joseph Smith sr, Hyrum Smith, and Samuel Smith. Also, Joseph Smith only had one wife, Emma Smith. There's a movie coming out about it soon.
I've been corrected. We're both wrong. It is said in their "history" that they were GOLD plates. At any rate NO ONE ELSE HAS EVER SEEN THEM.

Read the Testimony of the Three Witnesses and the Testimony of the Eight Witnesses in the beginning pages of the Book of Mormon. They were seen by eleven other people, some of whom later fell away from the Church. However, none of them ever denied the existence of the Plates nor the truth of the Book.

Just so you know, they aren't free to come and go as they please, so if you think that's the case, you're wrong. Read escape by Carolyn Jessop. It's a frightening world where children are brainwashed into believing that anyone that is an outsider is an agent of the devil. What frightens me is not that they have a counterculture going on but that the culture is based on a foundation of lies and fear. I don't think that's what God had in mind in His ultimate design. However, on the flip side, I bet they don't walk down the road at night worrying that they're going to be gunned down. The children are raised to respect their parents and fear their God. They just went a little wonky on the whole sexuality issue.
I'm really amazed that she has not been targeted since she has her book out and has been vocal about the FLDS happenings in Texas.

Also, it is of note that at least SIX women took the offer to go to a Women's Shelter rather than return to the ranch at Eldorado.

I just watched a program today on Ruby Ridge, the almost two month siege at the Branch Davidians in Waco, and the Oklahoma bombing.

There was at least one agent who died at Ruby Ridge and 4 who died at Waco. Once that happens, the FBI takes over.
