I truly wish I could say the title of this story fits but it doesn't. Flora Jessop and I have been exchanging text for the last two days making fun of the headlines. The FBI, RCMP, officials in Mohave County, Arizona and Hildale, Utah, U.S. Justice Department and elected officials from city levels all the way to the U.S. Congress and Senate have been repeatedly informed of these problems for more than a decade.
G-d bless Daphne Braham for keeping the faith. And G-d bless Canada for finally paying attention. But most of all G-d Bless Texas for it's courage and conviction. Thank you Governor Perry, Attorney General Greg Abbott, Representatives Hilderbran and Darby, and special prosecutors Eric Nichols and Angela Goodwin.
So even if Flora and I are not so shocked, maybe the rest of the world will finally be shocked at the truth of what Utah and Arizona have helped cover up for years.
Polygamy is abuse.

Immigrants involved in multiple marriage watching polygamy test case: imam
Marten Youssef, The Canadian Press
Read'em and weep.
Now might be a good time to remind everyone what Flora and I have been saying for the last 6 years. This is the essay we wrote that former Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard backed out of challenging.
Polygamy: Gateway to American Sharia
Polygamy should be prosecuted because it is the largest gateway to the practice of Sharia law in our country today. Fundamentalist Mormons may say polygamy doesn't hurt anyone but that is not the reality reflected in dozens of studies by medical and mental health professionals, worldwide. Polygamy has been studied in multiple countries, with the same results. Polygamy leads to statistically higher negative outcomes for women and children everywhere it is practiced. These outcomes include higher incidences of poverty, molestation, child and spouse abandonment, incest, child marriage, depression and divorce.
We cannot as a free and democratic nation governed by laws allow small groups of people to form operational theocracies, where the rights of women and children are trampled in the name of the religious freedom to keep women in concubinage. How dare we tell the people of Afghanistan that we know more about freedom than they, and then encourage immigrant cultures coming to our country to hold onto, rather than let go of traditions which infringe on the human rights of women. 70% of Muslim women who are first wives say their spouse took the second wife without their knowledge or consent, even though that is never supposed to happen in Islam. How can we as Americans look at the women coming to our shores from countries where they never dreamed of the right even to uncover their faces and say, "Here too, when your husband wants to bring another woman home, there is nothing you can do but live with it, because we are such a tolerant people.” There are more Muslims practicing the felony crime of polygamy in America, using Mohammed as their excuse, than there are Fundamentalist Mormons using Joseph Smith. What do they all have in common? They show a flagrant disregard for U.S. law in favor of their own culture of abuse, justified by their religion.
American Muslim polygamy has only started to grow and yet it already exceeds the estimated 32,000 fundamentalist Mormons engaging in the practice today. It took the fundamentalist Mormons 100 years to get here, yet it has taken Muslims in America less than a single generation to overtake them in numbers.
Refusing to prosecute polygamy will open the flood gates for Sharia based Muslim polygamy to grow to European levels here in the United States, quickly.

Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
The Canadian reference case on whether the ban on polygamy violates the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is, in essence, over. Closing arguments are scheduled for March 28th and B.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Bauman has been asked to determine whether the polygamy law is constitutional.
Late last week, special prosecutor for the state of Texas, Eric Nichols sent information gleaned from the 2008 raid on the YFZ Ranch in Scleicher County to the prosecutors in B.C. This information included evidence that one 13-year-old girl child and two 12-year-old girl children had been trafficked from their homes in Bountiful B.C. to Mohave County, Arizona, and then on to Texas for the purpose of "marriage" to FLDS leader, Warren Steed Jeffs.
Activist have known for years that this trafficking of minor female children has taken place under the noses of both Mohave County and Canadian officials. But in the warped politically correct world of "can't touch that" religion, a blind eye was turned.
Now Texas has shown them all the truth, and like roaches I'm sure most Mohave County, Arizona officials are creeping into the dark corners of their filthy hives to do their best to ignore it. I'll give anyone a dollar who can show me a story run on this development in the Mohave Valley Daily "News" in the last week.
Moreover, I will also give anyone a dollar who can show me a link to a CNN story on the same development in the last week, and I will give you $2 if you can show me a link where they run this old interview of FLDS "mothers" from 2008, starting at about the 5 minute mark.
Pray for Canada. Get on your knees for her and pray like the future of your daughter, your grand daughter and her great grand daughter depend on it. For indeed, it does!
For if the court should decide to recommend the decriminalization of polygamy in Canada, then it will surely spread here. And that is when the future for all our children will change forever, and someday a girl child in the future will look back on the freedoms you have today and sigh, saying before she is led to the alter and then the bed of slavery, "What must it have been like in the golden age?"

Brian David Mitchell, a fundamentalist Mormon polygamist, kidnapped Elizabeth Smart from her suburban Salt Lake City bedroom when she was 14-years-old. For weeks her family and law enforcement were stumped as to what might have happened to her but a relatively unknown anti-polygamy activist named Flora Jessop came forward not long after the kidnapping to warn law enforcement and the public that this had all the markings of the work of a fundamentalist Mormon polygamist.
She was ridiculed and laughed at, and as it turns out, she was right.
It took over 8 years but he was eventually convicted in a federal court for kidnapping Elizabeth and raping her every day, in order to fulfill his mission to his false Mormon god. You see, he needed her, because without participating in polygamy, according to his prophet, Joseph Smith, he could never reach the highest level of the afterlife, where he would become the god of his own planet and live out eternity having sex with all his spiritual wives in order to populate his planet.
A court rejected his argument that he was insane and a jury found him guilty. He was sentenced to 15 years in a federal prison for what he had done to Elizabeth. He stole her innocence and her childhood.
Elissa Wall was born into the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints in 1986. At the age of 14 she was informed by her family that she was to be given in marriage to her 19-year-old cousin, Allen Steed. She resisted. She cried. She begged her family not to make her marry him. She stood sobbing as her mother and other family members made her stand still for her wedding gown to be fitted.
She was then transported across state lines [violation of Mann Act? Human sex trafficking?] to a motel in Nevada, where the sect's leader, Warren Jeffs performed a marriage ceremony for the two. She told her new "husband" that she did not want to have sex. She begged him not to violate her innocence, and he did it anyway. Later she went to Jeffs to beg him to release her from the "marriage", but he advised her only to go home and submit herself to her rapist, "mind, body and soul."
There you have it, two 14-year-old girls, both raped by fundamentalist Mormons in order to become gods and get their own planet in the afterlife. You see, they needed these girls, had to have them or they wouldn't "get to Heaven."
Today the state of Utah offered Allen Steed a plea deal for raping then 14-year-old Elissa. He will serve 30 days in jail for his crime.
Brian David Mitchell raped a 14-year-old and got 15 years in prison.
What is the difference, when neither child was willing to submit to their rapes?
Elissa had the bad luck to be born into fundamentalist Mormon polygamy, and that my friends is a very dangerous place for any girl with her own mind to be born.
Someone please try to imagine your 14-year-old little girl being pushed down and having a man repeatedly forcing himself into her, over and over...and then being sentenced to only 30 days in jail for it.
Shame on Utah, it doesn't deserve to be in our Union, not today. Today you are VILE!
And to any polygamists here it Texas? You take a good long hard look at that flag at the top of this page. You will not succeed in coming here to Texas to rape us or our children, or in making us VILE like YOU. Got it?
Correction! Thank you, Texas-1 for pointing this out:
"Brian David Mitchell has been convicted, but has not yet been sentenced, his sentencing will be 25 May 2011 in SLC.
Mitchell's wife Wanda Barzee was sentenced to to 15 years, which she is serving at a prison located in Fort Worth."

The comments on this story, so far, are quite discouraging. The good news is that Mr. Heck, a Christian, is showing extraordinary courage in addressing this issue. I'd hope that anyone who follows this blog, or this issue, will visit the American Thinker over the next few days and help enlighten the public on the real issues surrounding the abuse of polygamy.
The Polygamists Make Their Move
By Peter Heck
The debate over whether or not those practicing homosexuality should be eligible to obtain the legal status of "married" for their same-sex relationships is persistently mischaracterized by activists on both sides as an attempt to redefine marriage. For those opposing such a move, this is most likely an error of ignorance, while for those favoring, it likely is an intentional tactic of misdirection. To be clear, in order to "redefine" anything, there must be an alternative definition being advocated. To this point, no such proposed substitute has emerged.... (Read Full Article)

So this week we were treated to the news that Warren Jeffs has finally found an attorney to fulfill his "special needs".
Who is Jeff Kearney from Fort Worth? It seems he is an attorney who specializes in fighting for some of the lowest scum to crawl the earth. He successfully defended one of the Branch Davidians from charges he killed a federal agent. The Branch Davidians were another group practicing polygamy and raping children. And Kearney unsuccessfully defended a Muslim client from Richardson, Texas; Hazim Elashi, who was co-owner of the Richardson-based company, InfoCom Corp, and one of five brothers convicted of doing business with the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas [See above for their philosophy of life and the value of children].
"Hazim and Ihsan were convicted in the first of two trials on charges outlined in an indictment that also charged the defendants sent money to defendant Mousa Abu Marzook, an investor in Infocom and a self-admitted leader of the Islamic Resistance Movement, a/k/a Hamas." Read the DOJ press release here.
I've had so many survivors of polygamy tell me that they see the FLDS as "The American Taliban." It makes so much sense that Jeffs would look for representation from someone very highly experienced defending what is essentially the indefensible.
