WSJ: I am not the prophet. I never was the prophet.
Warren S. Jeffs:
I am not the prophet. I never was the prophet. This is not a test. This is a revelation from the Lord God of Heaven to his former servant, who was never his servant, who is dictating these words at this time, that you may know this is not a test.
In light of the controversy now brewing between Warren S. Jeffs and William E. Jessop over the presidency and leadership of the FLDS church, this video seems to be pivotal. I don’t know how Warren gets around this one.
Also very interesting was the recent article published in the Trib, quoting Willie Jessop extensively:
“I loved who Mr. Jeffs was, when I thought I knew who he was and who he stood for,” Willie R. Jessop said Thursday. “But what came to light in Texas is morally indefensible.”
If other members of the FLDS saw the evidence filtering out, most of which has yet to be made public, he believes they wouldn’t support Jeffs.”I don’t know of anyone I associate with within the church [that] would defend or endorse what Mr. Jeffs has done,” he said.
There’s something that Willie and I agree about. Interesting times.
