  1. Wow, the being raised as calves in a stall, so sad!

  2. Jesus help us all!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This young girls graduation speech directly says the girls outnmber the boys by 50%… so where are all the boys? Kicked out, excommunicated, repenting from afar? Working at construction sites.

  3. The positive mentions of physical abuse—‘sitting’ against a wall without a chair, eating raw potatoes if one forgot breakfast—are kind of chilling. I’m sure they happen in other schools, but would the valedictorian mention them in her speech?

  4. Thanks for coming by and reading. I appreciate the comments. I am hoping some discussion on all sides of issues will spring up. Many of these documents look pretty bad, but maybe there’s a context which could help explain some of it. Maybe some things have different meanings within the FLDS. If that’s the case, I’d really like to know that rather than making faulty assumptions. If there are FLDS or people who are in close contact with members, please help us understand what we’re reading if we’re taking it out of context or misunderstanding something.
