    I want to bump this to make sure everyone has a chance to see it. The Larry King Live program should be interesting.

    Did you hear that one female who when asked what she thinks that the rest of the world is against plural marriages said "they're just uneducated"???? She had a seriously smarmy look on her face. Didn't make me feel too much for her, I must say.

    "UNEDUCATED"??? If that's the case, I'll stick with being "uneducated".

    I actually agree with her on the uneducated comment. Sure, we have schools, and colleges, and real life, and TV, and friends, and family, and jobs etc. You know, all of those ways of learning. However, we are not exposed to polygamy in an atmosphere that works so our opinion is very biased because we see it very differently. We are not in a part of the world where it is commonly practiced. We do not know the people (males, females, children). We do not understand the good things that polygamy may offer those that want to live that life style. We also do not understand their religious beliefs. In those aspects, they do understand the situation better than we do.

    I seem to caveat too many of my comments this way. Take away the abuse, the underage sex, etc. and I think she was making a valid point.

    Whether you agree or disagree with her, it is important to listen to her and hear what she is trying to say, not what we read into what she is saying.

    That's the same "Maggie" Jessop saying we're uneducated who wrote the opinion piece "I am an FLDS woman and I am entitled to the same rights as you" (Opinion, May 11) at the Salt Lake Tribune. (This reply was posted in response: http://www.sltrib.com/opinion/ci_9294696
    FLDS rights Public Forum Letter.)

    I believe that within that 10,000 number of members of the FLDS, that some do NOT abuse their children. Those persons probably have no idea of the levels of abuse that go on within certain families who are close to the "power" of the group.

    The majority of those who were handpicked, who follow Warren Jeffs edicts to the letter, and that were selected to go to YFZ were from a core group within the FLDS that centers around the "prophet" and the leaders. Although there are former members of the FLDS who weren't of that core group and reported that it also occurred in their families. However, this core group pretty much consists of specific families. Within those particular families it has been reported by former flds who are members of those families, that sexual, mental and physical abuse does occur.

    I don't have to be "educated" in polygamy to understand that these people, former polygamists, who reported the abuse suffered pain, humiliation and abuse. Nor do I need to be "educated" in polygamy to know that polygamy does give certain benefits to some people who seek that lifestyle, but for others, it does not.

    How "educated" in polygamy does one need to be to understand that?

    On Nancy Grace the other night it was reported that the authorities have a "treature trove of evidence." It was also reported that the Texas Rangers have begun their investigation into Dr. Barlow of the FLDS YFZ ranch.

    "Yes, he is a member of this sect. You have to believe that he was involved intimately with the birthing of babies, no matter what the age of the women are. Yes, if there were teenage girls on this compound giving birth, he was there. He would know about it. And yes, we`re told, Texas rangers have begun their investigation into Dr. Barlow

    I have a feeling that they will have more on him than being the doctor who attended the births of underage girls.

    Remember the kids with broken bones? Most likely the doctor attended those. Remember the statistics on disability in the FLDS? The 'good' doctor is supposed to keep the state advised of those. The 'good' doctor is also supposed to make sure that all births and deaths are reported to the state. I have a feeling that the prison will get some additional medical assistance at some point- although he will probably lose his license first.

    IMHO

    Very good possibility. Nancy Grace asked a doc from John Hopkins University about those broken bones, and he said it was his belief that unless they were routinely deprived of calcium, milk etc.. that the children would be no more likely to be susceptible to broken or brittle bones than any other children.

    Dr. Barlow, if he sticks around after his sessions with the Rangers might find it difficult to treat his "prophet" in the Utah or AZ jail from now on. Which by the way, I find it highly suspect that he was allowed to in the first place.

    Carolyn Jessop was on Larry King Live just now. He asked her if she knew how many wives Warren Jeffs has. She said that, at the last count that she was aware of, he had 180. 180 Wives!!!
