Abuses ……of children, adult women, welfare system (US taxpayer).. I can’t believe that in the USA, we allow an Organized Welfare Religious Income Generating scheme hiding behind inhumane traditions described as a non-profit Religion. This society lives off the USA taxpayer, yet it wants to be private. The women have no intention to work in the real world and pay taxes. The taxpayer already supports this organization whether the mothers have their children or not.

The men are not accepting any responsibility. The FLDS Religious practice would cease to exist if the men breeding the females would be required to pay child support. Ask the men who believe in their practice…..are they willing to pay child support for their children in order to continue their practice in private. Unfortunately, these men will be able to continue because our system of government is willing to continue to pay these women not to Work…while allowing the men breeding them to pool the finances …..receive grants….etc. to build the very so called private society…..FUNDED BY PUBLIC MONIES….

WHAT A SCAM AND OUTRAGE…. THE MEN OWE THE US TAXPAYER AND CHILD SUPPORT, TRAINING, MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTHCARE FOR THESE WOMEN AND CHILDREN….. MAKE THE MEN PAY OR PUT THEM AWAY…..

As the FLDS "religious" group becomes richer and richer, the women and children are forced to live under barbaric rules and regulations while surviving on government issued food stamps and disability payments. Women and children are taught that outsiders are evil, and cannot be trusted under any circumstances. The only education that takes place within this city is what the Profit and leaders allow, which is their way of brainwashing.
Girls are traded, sold and forced to marry whomever their fathers and/or church leaders tell them to. They are married as young as 12, and often to very old men who rule with an iron fist.
America spends $300,000,000 a year supporting the polygamist sect in Colorado City AZ. The women are considered unwed, so they receive welfare, food stamps, etc. They are forced to turn the money over to their husbands. The husbands turn the money over to the prophet while their multiple wives and children starve and are deprived of basic necessities. As if the physical and mental abuse that they are forced to endure wasn't enough! This is a must-see DVD. The United States government needs to take a stand and put an end to this horrible way of life!

"High Hopes?"
I wonder why their "Prophet" couldn't see this coming?*lmao*
Maybe they should consult with their "Prophet" about getting their children back before they get their Hopes up too HIGH!

I am 60 yrs. old and seeing an attorney tomorrow about collecting disability, so I can afford to see a doctor. After working all my life, since I was 16, working 2 jobs for 22 years and leaving my
child with neighbors, etc. this story really ticked me off. Can we trust our government??
Absolutely NOT. NOW I WANT MINE!!!!!!!

Unless you know what Ms Charlene is going through, and I don't then please don't judge. Age alone is not a reason for disability true, but disability is.. Have you ever heard of the disease ALS... it is terminal, you eventually lose every bit of your muscle and die. You still have to go to the attorney to get disability so you can go to the DR. This dear lady worked 22 years 2 jobs so give her a break.

It's like someone wrote that had been in the FLDS, if it were like BIG LOVE,
more people would be doing it. They have three nice houses, pool, plenty of food, decent vehicles. The #1 wife gets to go to college.

If the FLDS are so ready, willing and able to turn themselves in for sexual assault, why is law enforcement out hunting them?
