The LDS church believes in respecting and honoring the laws of the nation in which they reside.

These freaks are criminals disgusting… maybe misled… but still sick

Let the court system return the children to the compound, and at the same time arrest every single one of the “adults” and so called “leaders”, the “Fathers”, the “husbands”, and yes even the Mothers as they are as much pedophiles, and are as guilty of child endangerment, sexual assault, and abuse as any of the other adults.

My temple sanctioned LDS church practiced polygamy and no one was excommunicated and I am no where near a century old. So from my point of view the LDS just decides to say whatever fits the moment not necessarily the truth. I no longer am in this church. I joined a very nice Christian Church.

And that the media will continue with the coverage and the pressure…. I grew up in a home that as a girl … “if you wore pants” you were going to hell”, and it takes many years to get past that sort of thing….. plus in all of the news footage …. where are the children’s toys, playground, stuffed animals …????????? They have stolen these children’s childhood in the name of their God!

God has no directed it to be permitted.

It ran its course and became a hinderance. Don’t get the principle confused with the doctrine of eternal marriage. Lukeair2006 – you’re just hoping…

Its part of LDS scripture(D&C 132). The church discontinued the practice because the US government would have destroyed the church if the practice had continued. Its mockery of God and a betrayal of the founders of the church, Joseph Smith, Brigham Young etc. to say that we’re opposed to this practice – especially in a day when the government approves of men marrying men and women marrying women. I’m a mormon (LDS) and I believe in plural marriage. I just don’t practice it.

My feelings are that when the secular society judged polygamy and racist discrimination distasteful, then the church leaders get “revelations” to ban them. So now that their stepchildren, the Fundamental LDS are in trouble they want to declare they are not related, distancing themselves like treating lepers.
This definitely is not a church pleasing to God!

created a new office in the priesthood now that we have a new Prophet…
