Whether the state of Texas violated the rights of the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints when it removed 400 some-odd children from the Yearning For Zion ranch is up for debate. What's not is the creepiness of these photos of former FLDS honcho Warren Jeffs sucking face with his child-brides. The Smoking Gun got a hold of images of Jeffs with two of his spiritual wives, Loretta and Merrianne. Merrianne, pictured here with Jeffs, was 12 when this photo was taken. These photos were used as evidence in the ongoing FLDS custody trials. Jeffs is currently in jail for coercing a 14-year-old girl to marry a 19-year-old. [The Smoking Gun]
So, Jeffs is in jail. I get that. These pictures are an illustration of what goes on at that ranch. I wonder how many other sets of similar pictures there are in other family albums.
I'm pissed at the state of Texas for screwing this up. All those kids will go home, the gates will be locked behind them, and the brainwashing and breeding will continue.
