The Elizabeth Smart case
Jon Krakauer's book "Under the Banner of Heaven," describes what
happened in this case
as a usual practice among Fundamentalist LDS.
Many other books about the cult have been removed from circulation by
threats of lawsuits,
or by replacement of critical tomes in public libraries with newer
books telling of "the miracle
of the seagulls vs. the grasshoppers." The author of one book, on
Mormon finance was
excommunicated, but then reinstated on the condition that he never

a non-Mormon, Anson Shupe. "The Dark Side of Virtue" became
unobtainable almost immediately

abounds, according to a series in the LA Times some years ago.
There is also affinity crime - Mormons preying on Mormons.
Earlier, there was the Mountain Meadows Massacre of Oregon-bound men,
women and children
old enough to testify in court, ordered by Brigham Young. John Lee
stood before a firing squad
afterwards as Brigham's surrogate.
I bear the organization a grudge - they lured my nephew away, into the
James in Alhambra
Remember that raid in Texas a
few years ago where they discovered all those raped child brides?
That shit goes in every day in America and
nobody will speak out against it because "God likes that."
with Benny the Rat and his worldwide child rape club.
kids is sport to these sons of bitches, but people keep giving them
so they can bribe the few children who dare to report them.
