This is Warren Jeffs.
The person he's french kissing was 12 (TWELVE!) when these pictures were taken AT HER WEDDING TO JEFFS!
I'd like to say I'm speechless, but you all know me far better than that. I have a lot to say, including some choice four letter words. But, really...don't the pictures say it all?
Listen up, polygamist, FLDS readers (and I know there are a few who read this blog):
Marrying a hundred women? Fine. Knock yourself out. I'll throw you a bitchen' bridal shower!
But, when that hundredth wife is a CHILD, then you are an accomplice to a felony. You are sanctifying rape! Twelve year old children are not allowed to give consent to sex. EVER! When your religion condones such a union, your religion is fucked up. If you're too blinded to see that, then you need therapy. If you can't fathom how this is wrong, then you don't deserve to be a parent. When you have children, there's an expectation by our society, and I'd argue by biology, that you will protect them. Looking at these pictures makes me sick. SERIOUSLY!! To think of my daughter, 13, being married off to some self-professed Messiah makes me nauseous. And, let's just say, it would NEVER HAPPEN. NEVER! I don't care if God came down and did back flips while juggling fiery bowling pins while singing "I'm God. Worship me!", I'd still tell that God to fuck off if he told me to allow my daughter to marry some old coot with a super-ego. If, as a mother, you find nothing wrong with these pictures, then you have been brainwashed and you're not a fit parent.
My heart breaks for this little girl. At twelve, she should be going to school and learning about the world so that she can make a choice about the woman she will become. She should be gabbing with friends on the school bus and giggling about boys who are cute - not 50 year old, saggy assed men! In my opinion, she's too young to date! Certainly, she's too young to have a geezer macking on her!! For all the bullshit talk of keeping your children innocent, you FLDS sure throw that shit under the bus when it's time for your twelve year old to marry a convicted sexual predator and child molester.
