Polygamist Sect Leader Convicted of Sexual Assault

Dear Network,

We circulated this news last night thanks to Americans Against Abuses of Polygamy and the Eldorado Success Newspaper.  Thank you, Info-Secte, for passing this along.  I’m sure we’ll be seeing many more articles come out of this trial.  Perhaps more charges will be brought against Warren Jeffs.  We can only hope!

I truly believe that men who seduce young women and girls into becoming “spiritual” wives (concubines) in their harems in the name of “religion” are the scourge of the earth.  They belong in prison, off the streets and away from those to whom they cause so much harm.
