Warren Jeffs Convicted of Sexual Abuse

by at . Comments

Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs was convicted of two counts of child sexual abuse Thursday afternoon. He faces a strong possibility of life in prison.

Jurors in the San Angelo, Texas, trial deliberated for less than four hours before announcing their verdict against Jeffs, who showed no reaction.

Prosecutors alleged Jeffs raped two girls, ages 12 and 14, and that he fathered a child with one of them. The jurors concluded he was in fact guilty.

Jeffs represented himself and said little during his closing argument.

The trial ended with a very bizarre summation in which the 55-year-old stared silently at the jury for 24 minutes, then muttered, "I am at peace."

Jeffs calls himself the prophet and leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, an offshoot banned by the Mormons.

His theology calls for men to have three wives to be admitted to heaven. The self-proclaimed "living prophet" of God will be sentenced soon.

The definition of a destructive religious cult is like alcoholism-if alcohol controls you instead of the other way around you are an alcoholic.
If they try to ruin your reputation and break up your family for trying to get out then they are a cult!
Please examine the Jehovah's Witnesses pedophiles go door to door and come on our property.
Many court documents and news events prove that Jehovah's Witnesses suppress evidence when a child comes forward with allegations of molestation within the congregation.Whenever you surrender your logic and reason to anyone who asks you to trust them because they know better it's possibly a cult.
If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck....

This man is really sick. The Bible in no way speaks about having 3 wives rather it says that a man should commit himself to his ONLY wife. When you do your vows it says til death do us part, not til my second or third minor wives do us part. Wtf man he deserve to be jailed til death.
XOXO

I would never judge another persons religion but if a person claims ( keyword CLAIMS) that their god wants or requires them to have sex with and/or have children with very young girls then they are just trying to make excuses and find a way to make what they do ok. This kind of thing is never, ever ok. He can call himself a "prophet" all he wants but a 50 something year old man who forces himself on 12 and 14 year old girls and fathers a child with one (I assume DNA was done to prove he was the father) is just sick and a criminal, not a prophet. I would think any god would care more about protecting innocent children than about some dirty man getting off. Jail is where this creep belongs. Guys like this don't have any real belief or faith at all. The just use the cover of god to make whatever they do ok. There are a lot of this type out there, why everyone does not see it and some choose to still follow them is beyond my understanding.
