SALT LAKE CITY, Utah A decade after the arrest of polygamous prophet Warren Jeffs, insiders say his church has literally become a place of feast or famine, of haves and have-nots.
Prison has done little to loosen Jeffs hold on many of his followers, even if he is now a convicted child-sex offender serving a life sentence. They still await his revelations and follow his directives, both difficult and bizarre.
But some members are leaving the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and disobeying their prophets longstanding orders to avoid law enforcement and answer them nothing.
These FLDS outcasts are talking to the FBI.
They include the former cooks and drivers for the Jeffs family, as well as ex-wives and others who hovered close to the church leaders and their power center. Their words fill hundreds of pages of freshly filed federal court documents, bringing outsiders into the cloistered world of the FLDS like never before.
According to these breakaway members, the FLDS of 2016 has a pecking order: There are the elite church leaders and chosen followers, and everyone else.
There was so much class distinction and shunning of people, said a former cook for the family of Bishop Lyle Jeffs, the prophets brother and right-hand man. She spoke of seeing shopping carts full of meat and turkeys earmarked for the bishops family while others made do with rice and beans.

Warren Jeffs supporters sound a lot like Cruz supporters.
being the sex slaves of geeks- that’s got to be quite a life
If you can marry a queer, why cant you marry 10 women? I see absolutely no difference in the logic. Do you? explain.
And the hits...they jus’ keep on a’comin’!
The difference being these people have been marring 10+ women since the 1800’s. Long before anyone thought of marring a queer.
There, that's a lot more accurate and realistic.
Because “polygamy” in this case is a nice word used to cover up the fact that this cult grooms young girls to be raped at the age of 12 (or as it’s known in Utah, “celestial marriage”) by a bunch of wrinkled old perverts claiming it’s the work of god. And those young girls become pregnant and raise and groom a new generation of victims.
Read the linked article, it’s got plenty of disgusting information.
Cruz supporters to the core....and you know it....and you know everyone knows it too!
“__________supporters to the core....and you know it....and you know everyone knows it too!”
You all three have it wrong, it was that other guy...what’s his name. Mittens Rondey?
I’m in favor of the logic that if queers can marry so can a man and a pig or a man and 10 women. Are you not? just say’in.
but we now know that it is a civil right to marry who we want. they want 10 women. Don’t they have rights too?
Nah, having one wife was more than enough...
Of course its next. The same argument applies. These people want to get married— Bake them a fricken cake or go to jail!!
They have med for that now.
Actually, I posted my original comment to the wrong thread.
In retrospect, I regret the implied personal insult to you. Please do not think it reflects my true opinion of you. I would rather attribute it to my temporary grouchiness brought on by a need for, quite possibly, ice cream.
