    Activists & The Sound Choices Coalition's efforts to make changes for the children of polygamists.


    “plygs”…It’s about the death of children’s souls, the manipulation of people of goodwill. It’s about power, greed, and perversion, as perpetrated by the self-proclaimed prophet of a fundamentalist Mormon sect that hides in the shadows of the desert on the Utah-Arizona border".

    Judgment and Apostasy of the Polygamists

    in Religion

    4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them. (Prov 28:4) Gave instructions to try those persons who were preaching, teaching, or practicing the doctrine of plurality of wives; for, according to the law, I hold the keys of this power in the last days; for there is never but one on earth at a time on whom the power and its keys are conferred; and I have constantly said no man shall have but one wife at a time, unless the Lord directs otherwise. (Oct. 5, 1843.) Joseph Smith-DHC 6:46.
    7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
    8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, [so that there is] no place clean.(Isa 28:7-8)
    Lorin Woolley had instructed the Council of Friends that none of them were to organize, colonize, or to hold regular meetings.' He said that they were not to organize wards and stakes, etc., for this was the work of the One Mighty and Strong...The only thing they were authorized to do was to 'keep plural marriage alive,' as John Taylor had also said: Recall that Plural Marriage is a "Law of the Priesthood." Lorin Woolley had warned the fundamentalist saints against apostasy, but regardless of his warnings, signs of this apostasy became evident before he died. John Y. Barlow, for instance, was overly anxious to get the House of God set in order, according to his own ideas on the matter. He oftentimes urged Lorin Woolley on the matter, and couldn't see why they could not begin organizing wards, stakes, etc. Brother Woolley said to `him: "John, that is neither your mission nor my mission. That is the mission of the One Mighty and Strong. Our mission is simply to keep plural marriage alive.'(Journal Notes; Keys of the Priesthood, Illustrated; Lynn L and Stephen L Bishop)

    IS MITT ROMNEY'S MORMONISM FAIR GAME?

    in Entertainment

     
    As the 2012 election season picks up steam, it becomes clear: there's an elephant in this room. No, we're not talking healthcare, the economy, or job creation--on Thursday, July 12 at 9 PM EST, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is talking Mormonism. Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is a Mormon. If elected, he would be our nation’s first Mormon president. But too many are shying away from discussing Romney’s religion, leaving Americans in the dark about the reality of this often heavily sensationalized topic. Are Mormons real-life versions of hapless missionaries on an ill-conceived journey, as written by the creators of South Park in the hugely popular Book of Mormon? Are they polygamists? Cultists? Christians? What does Romney's candidacy mean for the Mormon community, and for the White House's unbroken streak of firmly Christian presidents? And what do American reactions to Mormonism--be they silence or sensationalism--mean for us, and for our country? 
    Joining us on the show is David Mason, of Rhodes College and author of “My Mormonism: A Primer for Non-Mormons and Mormons, Alike"; by Adam Christing, author and filmmaker behind the in-progress Romney campaign film "A Mormon President"; by Columbia University's Professor Richard Bushman, himself a prominent member of the LDS Church and author of a host of books on Mormonism; and by Richard Packham, a noted scholar and member of the Ex-Mormon Foundation.

    Book Junkies Interviews Presents Susan Wells Bennett

    in Books

    Susan Wells Bennett joins me to talk about her books, her life, her loves, and how to follow one's dreams and write with passion!
    About Susan:
    Born in 1971, I am a third-generation native Arizonan. My grandfather's family arrived here from Missouri in 1912, just after Arizona became a state. I frequently use my native region as the setting for my novels. Two of my novels, Circle City Blues and An Unassigned Life, are seriocomic. Both of them have received excellent reviews. In fact, An Unassigned Life was recently compared to Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit in a Goodreads.com review. The Thief of Todays and Tomorrows is historical fiction set in post-WWII Chicago and Phoenix. It follows the life of an unwilling mafia wife. The Prophet's Wives is contemporary dramatic fiction about a man who believes his own press a little too much. My fifth book, Forsaking the Garden, follows Irene, a fourteen-year-old girl raised by polygamists, as she explores the world that she never knew existed. Wild Life and Charmed Life, my sixth and seventh books, are also the first two books of the Brass Monkey series, which centers around a group of Baby-Boomer bar patrons. The third novel in the series, Night Life, will be released by Inknbeans Press in Spring 2012. All of my books are also available in paperback form.

    New Revelation Received and Chatroom Challenge

    in The Bible

      Revelation received concerning so-called "Indian Prophet" from the Yucatan:
    Thus saith the Lord, the remnant of Jacob who should be as a "young lion in the midst of sheep" pertains to the "scattered remnants" of the blood of Ephraim among the Gentiles, now gathered into "the remnant of Jacob", being gathered by the OMS and Apostles under the direction of the keys which are held by the OMS who is descended from this European line spoken of in D&C 113, who should "bring again Zion" not being left "to another people", saith the Lord, but remaining with this scattered European remnant, now to be gathered into the prophesied REMNANT OF JACOB. Manessah is to be schooled and to receive their blessings under the hands of  Ephraim, saith the Lord.
    Challenge from false prophet answered:
    Revelation to polygamists, received May 26, 2010 , Baja, Mexico
     The OMS is here. No one is authorized to take more than one  unless the Lord (through his anointed, and there is never but one on the earth at a time, saith the Lord) says otherwise. Rebellion against my Holy Order in these things is wickedness and sectarianism, which, saith the Lord, shall be requited upon their own heads, and this for taking from the heir his righteous perogative in the Priesthood. They are thieves and robbers, saith the Lord. No one taketh this honor unto himself except he is called and ordained as was Moses. This law (the law of Abraham) hath not been abrogated or done away by the wickedness, foolishness and rebellion of the children of men in their ignorance, in the least degree. Therefore enter in at the gate and seek not to climb up some other way than that of the medium of mine anointed who is the gate....

    SUSANNA BARLOW - ABUSE RECOVERY

    in Family

    SUSANNA BARLOW is the 23rd child of 46 children, the quintessential middle child. Growing up in a Mormon fundamentalist religious home shaped her life values, and her views on literally everything.  This memoir is about growing up while suffering abuse in a polygamous family living in Utah.  She says, “In writing the book, I let the rotting parts of myself die and I asked the book to carry the emotional truth that my body could no longer hold.” Young Susanna didn’t know anything other than the family environment that was created for her; a system without regard for society or man’s laws. Raised in a sequestered home in a busy city neighborhood, everything beyond the front gate was off-limits.
     The isolation proved to be a breeding ground for abuse and Susanna struggled to reconcile her desire to escape and her need to belong. The book recounts six critical years of Susanna’s youth during which she struggled to come to terms with the conditions of her life.
     This story is a testament to survival. Pushed to the limits of her coping abilities, Susanna tried everything she could think of to bring about the peace that always seemed out of reach.
     In an impulsive moment and an act of daring, she contacted a newspaper journalist and found herself in a predicament that she never before considered. That decision became the impetus that propelled her to where she wanted to be and to finally find personal peace.
     Although Ms. Barlow is no longer affiliated with any polygamous group on a religious level, she is surrounded by family and friends who are practicing polygamists. She says, “Although I suffered abuse at the hands of one of “the mothers”, I currently know many decent people who are living this lifestyle.”
     Susanna Barlow is currently working on her second book.  Married and the mother of six children, writer, author, painter, teacher and also has written plays. Her book is available at The King’s English, Barnes and Noble and Amazon.

    Papists Not Justified in Condemnation of Polygamy, Saith the Lord

    in Religion

    1. If plurality is offensive in the sight of God, why was Abraham, who practiced it, called the friend of God, and the father of the faithful? Why did the Lord promise that in him, as well as in his seed, all the families of the earth should be blessed? Why require all the families of the earth, under the Christian dispensation, to be adopted into the family of a Polygamist in order to be saved? Why choose a Polygamist to be the father of all saved families? Why require all Christian families in order to be saved, to walk in the steps and do the works of Abraham? Why did God proclaim Himself to be "The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob," and say that this shall "MY NAME AND MY MEMORIAL TO ALL GENERATIONS?" (See Exodus 3: 15.) If Polygamy is not to be sanctioned among the generations of Christendom, why did He represent Himself to be the God of Polygamists, and say that all generations should adopt that memorial of Him? Why choose these Polygamists to be examples for Christians, and say, that many should come from the east and the west, from the north and the

    north and the south, and sit down with them in the kingdom of God? Will Abraham's wives and concubines, and Jacob's four wives be in the kingdom of God with their husbands? If so, will it not greatly corrupt the morals of Christians to sit down in the same kingdom with them? Will not Christians be greatly ashamed to be found sitting in the company of Polygamists? Will not Christians entirely ruin their characters by being adopted into the family of so noted a Polygamist as Abraham, and be obliged to acknowledge him as father, and be called his children? "The Scripture foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the Gospel unto Abraham, saying, "In thee shall all nations be blessed." (Gal. 3: 8.) What kind of Gospel was preached unto Abraham? Was it not the same Gospel that was preached after Christ...
