“Oprah manipulated by Sister Wives. . .”

If these videos do not educate the public on how terrible polygamy is, then nothing will.
Go to the “about” button and read my story that I wrote for Macleans Magazine, a national magazine in Canada, July 2002. At the time I went through the mainstream Mormon temple ceremony for my marriage to a Mormon man I was very much in love with, I had to avow to the same death oaths/blood atonement that the FLDS still do today! I was horrified and started asking my husband about them soon after our marriage. He would go into a rage saying that nothing about the temple is supposed to be discussed outside the temple that I was bringing “the spirit of Satan into our home by asking those questions.” I soon realized that he didn’t have the answers to my questions that he was just as ignorant as everyone else regarding why we had to vow three different times gesturing three different ways to be murdered or to commit suicide or be destroyed and damned if we did not keep our temple convenants and wear that awful underwear day and night except for bathing and sex–swearing our allegiance not to Jesus Christ (the name of the church) but to the church and obeying its leaders because they are mouth pieces for God. Yes, Mormonism and Fundamentalist Mormonism is the Taliban of suppression in North America. Rebecca, you are so right.
They took the deaths oaths out of mainstream Mormonism temples in the early 90s but Mormons still have to “work out their salvation” and give everything they can to build up the church. Christians do not have to “work out their salvation.” Christians believe that Christ shed his blood on the Cross to atone for their sins. They are saved by His Grace.
