Dear Brother Lyle (General Discussion #62)
In response to this letter from Will and Willie, Brother Lyle sent a mass text message to FLDS members:
“The enemy has mailed out another mailing. A trifold letter addressed to Box Holder. Give it no time. It is poison.”
The FLDS members who received this text message from Lyle before they picked up their mail and received the letter from Will and Willie likely discarded the letter without even reading it. Hopefully it was read by some. Hopefully it will at least plant a seed of curiosity that will lead some to questioning and eventual doubt about their prophet.
While I have my doubts about Willie’s motives and agenda regarding his recent about-face, I do believe that he is in a position to make a positive difference with some of the the rank-and-file. Whether he is properly or improperly motivated, I hope he continues to speak publicly and reach out to the FLDS community for the purpose of exposing Warren Jeffs and opening their eyes and their hearts.
Maybe just wishful thinking.
