FLDS Plans to Build Giant Monument of Warren Jeffs

By R. Leigh Coleman | Christian Post Reporter

A flock of devoted followers within the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints are shunning the fact their leader was sentenced to life in prison for sexually assaulting underage “wives.” The sect is reportedly making plans to construct a three-story statue in honor of the now convicted felon, which will tower over their isolated desert compound.

FLDS members say they plan to erect a huge metal monument to reflect the likeness of their imprisoned leader, Warren Jeffs, an anonymous source tells The Daily Beast.

Jeffs, the polygamist leader sentenced to life in prison this week for sexually assaulting underage followers, was found guilty for the rape of two underage children he calls “celestial wives.”

Investigators now know that Jeffs had 78 known spiritual marriages, with 24 being under the age of 16.

The jury deliberated less than half an hour to render its decision, but hundreds of FLDS cult followers remain under Jeffs' spell.

“The (statue) project is secret, or as FLDS terms it, a ‘heavenly hush,’ which means that anyone who discusses it will be kicked out of the sect,” the source told the news.

The inside source also told the news that those members building the statue believe that this is their “way of showing the world that they can’t take him away from us.”

A glimpse into the mindset of the brainwashed:

Really? As the old song goes, What kind of bird don't fly? JAILBIRDS!

(At least the statue can't rape little girls, and neither can Jeffs while he is in jail!)

Warren Jeffs trial pinglist—if you want on or off, let me know via freepmail!

I have just one question about this statue. Will it depict him raping some poor little girl?

Ok, make that two questions. I also have to ask how many kids will go hungry so they can build this “giant” statue of their child molester in chief.

I guess its not much different from the lds having dozens of status of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young around the country. They didn’t do anything different than Jeffs did.

The children will not go hungry. These huge polygamous tribes are on welfare, and Uncle Sap is paying for their evil life-style with taxpayer money. This is another fine place to cut unnecessary spending.

If only that were true. They’ll sell or trade the foodstamps and surplus foods if necessary to help their “Profit.” They’ve done this before.

“...and Uncle Sap is paying for their evil life-style...”

At first I thought you made a typo when you typed Uncle Sap instead of Uncle Sam.

I then looked at my keyboard and realized “No, that definitely wasn’t a typo”.

LOL

I bet they will put the statue of Jeffs on top of the temple at El Dorado....after they cover it in gold leaf like the Salt Lake mormons do the fictional angel Moroni on the LDS temples.

Warning, some of these are graphic. I do not know if this is the complete set, but if it is, it's not for the squeamish.

It isn't just Jeffs, the hierarchy is involved. If they reject Jeffs they condemn themselves with the suckers/faithful. It is really awful for the kids trapped in the cult.

Exactly. He may have elaborated on it, but he followed their blueprint.

I'd take it a step or two further. It's every single adult in the community cult. Hold them all responsible.

Another way of looking at this abomination of Jeffs statue is it will remind everyone outside the compound what sick people live there.

How about a monument AND a poem?

The Passing of the Backhouse

When memory keeps me company and moves to smiles and tears,
A weather-beaten object looms through the mist of years.
Behind the house and barn it stood, a half a mile or more.
And hurrying feet a path had made straight to its swinging door.
Its architecture was a type of simple classic art.
But in the tragedy of life it played a leading part;
And oft the passing traveler drove slow and heaved a sigh
To see the modest hired girl slip out with glances shy.

We had our posy garden that the women loved so well
I loved it too, but better still I loved the stronger smell
That filled the evening breezes so full of homely cheer,
And told the night - o'ertaken tramp that human life was near,
On lazy August afternoons it made a little bower,
Delightful, where my grandsire sat and whiled away an hour.
For there the summer morning its very cares entwined.
And berry bushes reddened in the steaming soil behind.

All day fat spiders spun their web to catch the buzzing flies
That flitted to and from the house, where Ma was making pies.
And once a swarm of hornets bold had built a palace there,
And stung my unsuspecting aunt--I must not tell where;
Then father took a flaming pole--that was a happy day--
He nearly burned the building up, but the hornets left to stay.
When summer bloom began to fade and winter to carouse,
We banked the little building with a heap of hemlock boughs.

But when the crust was on the snow and sullen skies were gray,
In sooth, the building was no place where one could wish to stay.
We did our duties promptly there, one purpose swayed the mind;
We tarried not, nor lingered long, on what we left behind.
The torture of the icy seat would make a Spartan sob,
For needs must scrape the goose-flesh with a lacerating cob,
That from a frost-encrusted nail hung pendant by a string.
My father was a frugal man and wasted not a thing.

When grandpa had to "go out back" and make his morning call,
We'd bundle up the dear old man with muffler and a shawl.
I knew the hole on which he sat--'twas padded all around,
And once I dared to sit there-'twas all too wide I found;
My loins were all too little and I jack-knifed there to stay.
They had to come and get me out or I'd have passed away.
Then father said ambition was a thing boys should shun,
And I must use the children's hole 'till childhood's days were done.

But still I marvel at the craft that cut those holes so true;
The baby hole, and the slender hole that fitted Sister Sue,
That dear old country landmark; I've tramped around a bit,
And in the lap of luxury my lot has been sit;
But e'er I die I'll eat the fruit of trees I robbed of yore,
Then seek the shanty where my name is carved upon the door.
I ween the old familiar smell will soothe my jaded soul;
I'm now a man, but none the less, I'll try the children's hole.
----James Whitcomb Riley

If that's too long for an engraver, this simple poem might also do:

These backhouse poets when they die,
Deserve erected to the sky,
In memory of their clever wit,
A towering monument
Built of sh*t.

Why does the government send welfare checks to these women who swear that are married to Jeffs? Why can’t we use some common sense and take into consideration his wealth and deny government aid to them?

This group are pikers. If they gave ObaMao 80% approval ratings, they would be invited to the white house for dinner, be called a great religion, part of the American fabric and able to keep on doing what their doing.

It would be politically incorrect to criticize them.

Not to attribute too much common sense to the welfare folks, but in their defense, these are not legal wives. They are “spiritual” or is it “celestial” wives. Hence, they are single mothers in the words of the law.

Ironic, isn’t it, that Jeffs himself might find himself being a cell-estual “wife” in Huntsville. ;)

Yes they are single mothers - I just wish some welfare reform would include looking at the father of the children and insist on support and if he can't support them, let HIM do some "community service" picking up trash or fixing playground equipment to help pay for the government support of his children.

And I like the idea of Jeffs having a prison wedding...

A question: those big air tankers that dump water on forest fires...what’s their maximum capacity?

Next, I need 1 volunteer ex-bomber pilot. Then I need about a thousand more volunteers to collect all their urine for a couple months; put it in plastic jugs and leave them set in the sun.

Finishing touch will be the giant speakers installed on the aircraft and have “Flight of the Valkyries” ready to play.

Don’t forget to put it on Youtube...

For such a big statue wouldn't they need a permit? I am sure the locals don't want Warren looking at them. Deny them the permit to build it. I think they all need to go to jail. I want the sister wives who held the little girl down put on trial. The parents who toss away their sons & toss their little girls into perverts arms need to be held accountable. Crazy cult of perverts.

Ol’ Jeffs will have a lot of spiritual or celestial wives in jail (or more like he will be their wife but instead of underage girls they will be big burly dudes). In the prisoner code of ethics pedophiles are bottom of the barrel and there’s always somebody who wants to make a name for himself by taking out a famous (or infamous) prisoner. I doubt he will last that long in jail.

I don't know that he will be in general population. I am hoping so since it is TX. Here in NJ they would protect his sorry butt. I think Warren goes both ways. He might be happy being a “bride”.

Because when those women apply for those government checks they say what they truly are: unmarried mothers...

Their status is the same as the girls in the projects

and their immoral behavior about equal...

(The girls in the projects are more honest...)

Those praire dresses might hide some things...

But theres no modesty or virtue to cover...
