As you probably know, Polygamy was practically invented* by the Mormon Prophet, seer and revelator, Joseph Smith.  Though officially illegal, it is still practiced by Mormons in Utah and in Other states. Many LDS men prepare for polygamy by being "sealed" to more than one woman.


 "...If any man espouse a virgin, and desire to espouse another, and the first give her consent, and if he espouse the second, and they are virgins, and have vowed to no other man, then is he justified; he cannot commit adultery... And if he have ten virgins given unto him by this law, he cannot commit adultery... therefore is he justified."
-Joseph Smith

Law of the priesthood)

Utah schools have one of the lowest ratios of teacher to child.
Utah has the highest per capita sugar consumption in the US.
Utah has the highest incidence of Child abuse in the US. 
In some polygamist towns up to one third of the families receive public welfare.

"It leads to confusion...let me state clearly that no polygamist group, including those calling themselves Fundamentalist Mormons has any affiliation whatsoever with the LDS Church"."   -M. Russell Ballard

Jurors  cry as graphic 'sex tape' played in court

Jurors in tears as court hears graphic 'sex tape' Warren Jeffs made with his three wives - including his 12-year-old 'bride'.  Jurors cover their mouths and cry as graphic 'sex tape' played in court; 'Rhythmic panting' can be heard

According to the transcript made and given to the court, the girl replies: 'Feels good.'  Soon after Jeffs can be heard saying: 'Everyone else let go of me, back away a little. Please get on the other side of the bed.  'You shall learn the powers of the spirit of God as a heavenly wife should,' Jeffs tells the 12-year-old.

'You have to know how to be sexually excited and to help each other ... and you have to be ready for the time I need your comfort.' This is your mission. This is how you abide the law.'

At one point, he says: 'Take your clothes off. Do it right now.'

The sounds of crying followed as he then says: 'Just don't think about the pain, you're going to heaven. The world's view of sexual relations is selfish, the celestial view is not.'

In another part of the recording he can be heard saying: 'Do you feel ... your servant ... fill them with the Holy Ghost ... deliver these ladies.'

The male voice can also be heard saying: 'You will be able to come into the heavenly session ... and see heavenly visions, the angels, this shall make to come to know God in his power and feel his presence.'   Read more: DailyMail.co.uk

Judge affirms ban on polygamy

In a blow to polygamy advocates, a Canadian judge ruled in a landmark case Wednesday to uphold the country’s ban on plural marriage.

British Columbia Chief Justice Robert Bauman wrote in his decision that the ban "minimally impairs religious freedom," but should not be used to prosecute children ages 12 to 17 in polygamous marriages.

The case was prompted by an investigation into a British Columbia-based outpost of a Utah-based polygamous sect, the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

After charges against then-rival leaders James Oler and Winston Blackmore were thrown out on the basis of religious freedom in 2009, the Attorney General of British Columbia asked the province’s Supreme Court to decide once and for all if the law banning polygamy should stay on the books.

Prosecutors argued that the law should stay because polygamy is harmful, and introduced evidence uncovered by authorities in Texas during a massive 2008 raid on a remote FLDS ranch showing evidence of underage marriage, including unions of 12 and 13-year-old girls to FLDS leader Warren Jeffs. Some of that evidence would later be used in Jeffs’ trial on two counts of sexual assault of a child in Texas, where he was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

Attorneys seeking to strike down the law argued it violates the country’s guarantee of religious freedom, and is overly broad. The Canadian Polyamory Advocacy Association argued the law could also be used to prosecute their members for participating in consensual intimate relationships among multiple adults.

The case included testimony from academic experts, former polygamist women and current plural wives for polygamy. Carolyn Jessop, who chronicled her abusive plural marriage in the FLDS of the bestselling book "Escape," nevertheless testified that a repeal of the ban would allow polygamous societies to be more open to law enforcement and report other crimes.

Monique Pongracic-Speier, lawyer for the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association, stressed Bauman’s decision is only an opinion and could be appealed by any participant.

"This is not a process in which that provision is struck down," she said.

Parliament could repeal the law, change it or decide not to enforce it, she said.

Lawyer Kieran Bridge, who represents the group Stop Polygamy in Canada, said prosecutions would likely follow any ruling upholding the ban.

"I think removing the uncertainty about the validity or invalidity of the law will go a long way towards removing any roadblocks to prosecutions. That was the biggest hurdle," Bridge said.

Polygamy links theft of silver -- and possibly gold. 
Woman who reported missing gold worth up to $5M won't return police calls.

It's a uniquely Utah caper: Silver bars, and maybe gold bars and coins, stolen from a family connected to a polygamous clan.

At a Millcreek home in February, police arrested two young men carrying off about $70,000 in silver bars. On the same day, Patty Brown Kingston of West Jordan called police to report she was missing up to $5 million in gold bars and coins.

Kingston, the Millcreek family and the arrested men -- Scott E. Brown, 20, and David L. Brown, 19 -- are all associated with the polygamous Davis County Cooperative, said Rowenna Erickson, a former member of the Kingston family by marriage.

Salt Lake County sheriff's Lt. Don Hutson said the cases involving the Browns will be submitted this week to prosecutors, who will decide whether to file criminal charges.

But detectives have had difficulty investigating the West Jordan theft, and are not convinced it occurred. "Here's a lady that's missing up to $5 million in gold, then won't take our phone calls on it," said West Jordan police Lt. Bob Shober.

Hutson said a Millcreek resident on Feb. 26 reported two men entering and leaving a neighbor's home. A deputy arrived and found the Browns with silver bars they had taken from the house, Hutson said.

"They essentially admitted, 'That's our aunt. We often go to her home and take some things,'" he said.

The silver "was essentially stacked in the house, and that was a large concern of ours," Hutson said. "Apparently that has been rectified."

The Browns did not claim they had permission to take the bars,  Hutson said.  The deputy  arrested  the  Browns on

suspicion of burglary and theft. The Salt Lake County jail released them about a week later.

Kingston told police she heard about the Millcreek theft and went to check her own stash of gold bars and coins, discovering it was missing. She said her gold was in three boxes, each weighing about 60 pounds, but she had not looked at it in five years, Shober said.

She claimed that she and a business partner purchased the gold years ago and divided it among themselves.

Kingston told the first responding officer the gold was worth about $500,000, Shober said, but then later told a detective it might be worth between $3 million and $5 million, based on appreciation.

But Kingston did not produce documentation and has not responded to detectives' efforts to follow up, Shober said.

Kingston leaders declined to comment Tuesday. The Browns could not be reached for comment.

Another golden mystery
Zions Bank is trying to find a woman who sold its Washington, Utah, branch office thousands of dollars in gold coins at a fraction of their value.

On March 16, the woman asked to trade in coins labeled "$20." The coins were minted from 1875 to 1927, said Zions spokesman Rob Brough. The bank paid face value but later realized they may be worth $1,000 each, he said.

Anyone with information about the woman, described as white, in her 20s or 30s, about 5 foot 6 and having short hair, can contact a local Zions branch.

Brough said there's no indication the coins are related to gold reported stolen from the West Jordan home of Patty Brown Kingston. ~
