Makes Jacko Look Tame

Being a former Mormon, I feel safe in making this statement: As if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints wasn't weird enough, check out their weirdo stepchild, the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. (Jon Krakauer's book, Under the Banner of Heaven is a revealing and great read about both churches.)

Now comes news that Warren Jeffs, the head of the FLDS church is systematically weeding out competition for plural wives by banishing hundreds of teenage boys from their insulated communities on the southern Utah / northern Arizona border.

Old geezers preying on innocent young girls in the name of God. Is this a great country or what?
