    Part 1 of piece by LL Miller in West Kerr Current regarding the FLDS at YFZ as a world apart

    This author implies four underaged marriages for Jeffs at YFZ. Up until now, I've only heard rumors of two with potential TX ties. Wonder if this legit and if it's part of what the grand jury is looking into. Is there really an 'informant,' and if so, who is it? Could it be someone still on the inside or an ex-member who still has ties on the inside? Or, is TX just blowing smoke? Wonder if the warrants just served are related. Texas might be planning on going after Jeffs too, and perhpas the parents and other relatives of the brides.

    Has anybody seen Banking on Heaven?

    So many ex-FLDS seem SO concerned about what this group is doing and could do. I can't help but be concerned too. My major concern is that these people STILL seem to follow Jeffs, or at least protect and defend him. Some of these people (if family photo albums tell the truth) very probably allowed their 12-14 daughters to marry the man. The may have attended sewn wedding dresses and transported the brides to the event which surely some of them attended. If so, are they not culpable in the abuse of these young women? Do these parents have other 12-14 year olds who they have married or will marry to other 50-something men? Were Jeffs adult wives aware that their hubby was bedding young teens? Did they do anything to stop him, or to report the abuse? If not, are they not culpable? Did Jeffs brothers know? His sisters? His mother(s)? The adult brothers and sisters of the 12-14 year olds, if they existed, the cousins, aunts and uncles--did they know? Did they do anything? Who took those pictures? Many people MUST have been aware that this was going on. If no one did anything to report or stop the abuse, might not Allen's assertion be true that many of these people will do anything the prophet tells them to do, or have most of YFZ people actually reached the conclusion that marrying 12-14 women is ok?
