Funding Terrorism

In the titanic and cosmic war between those who wish to live by " . . . every word that proceedeth forth from the mouth of God" (including plural marriage commandments) and those who hate them, we occasionally see money change hands. Noteworthily, some years ago, by way of its representative, Elder Alexander Morrison, the LDS Church donated tens of thousands of dollars to Tapestry Of/Against Polygamy, ostensibly to help stamp out apostate polygamists. My guess is that the money went into the pockets of the organization's leaders. I read yesterday of another instance of fiscal aggression. The Presbyterian Church USA just donated $40,000 to an anti-polygamy group to provide help to women and children "transitioning out of the polygamist culture."

Maybe I'm all wet, but I am more inclined to believe that the mission of the anti-polygamy hate groups is to make war on Fundamentalist Mormons and to do everything possible to lure people out of the culture. It isn't politically correct to "lure" people out of the black or Latino cultures, so why is it okay to attempt to do so with plural families?

It is very easy to say, "Oh, we just want to help these poor, poor people," but isn't that what Texas wanted to do with the YFZ Ranch residents? I'm with the government and I'm here to help you (with tanks and sharpshooters).

From what I've heard, there are organizations already in place whose goal is to provide private and public resources to people from and within the fundamentalist culture - organizations which do not want to turn challenged individuals into anti-polygamy poster children to use as pawns in an anti-polygamy campaign. Why cannot the Presbyterian Church give $40,000 to the Family Support Center to enable more needy families to get the help they need, without requiring them to renounce their religion?

It always seems ironic to me that liberal Feminazis clamor for the right of women to choose for themselves, while requiring them to choose only what the Feminazis want for them, so, if a woman chooses an honorable husband who already has seven loving wives, then that woman is brainwashed and misguided and needs to be re-brainwashed.

When the State of Utah and the Mormon Church crafted the 1953 Short Creek raid, they also choreographed the transplanting of dozens of formerly healthy, happy women and children into LDS homes in Mesa, Arizona - presumably in a effort to re-program (= brainwash) them. Recently, another polygamy help group ushered several disaffected fundamentalist women and children into "mainstream" society, but not without vigorously working to convert them to a "mainstream" church.

This kind of crap is reminiscent of the Spanish Inquisition, where the ones with money and power preached mandatory "conversion" and demonized those who would not cooperate. In the Unanimous Declaration, we find the word, "UNALIENABLE". It talks about how certain of our God-given rights cannot be "a-lien-ed", or liened away (it has NOTHING to do with aliens !!!). Since our nation changed hands in 1868, we have become corporate socialists who have forgotten what a republic is. A democracy is like three wolves and a pig arguing over what to eat for lunch. We no longer know the meaning of free agency and liberty. Some people take pleasure in applying duress to get others to do what they want them to do. That is self-serving and devilish.

Look at Bruce Wisan, the Mormon Stake President. He knows what's best for the residents of Short Creek. He charges them millions for giving them the "help" they don't need.

I have no trouble figuring out why many women dread the prospect of plural marriage - they know that they would not do well sharing a husband, regardless of how wonderful he is. What I do find puzzling is the surprising number of men (like Bruce Wisan, Monte Stewart, Ron Barton, David Leavitt, George Smith, etc.) who deeply despise polygamy. Is it because, deep down inside, they know they have already failed the morality exam, and can never qualify to live the exalting Principle? I'm telling you - anti-polygamy animus is supernatural and devilish.

Prove me wrong.
