FLDS and the Information Age

Advertisement - Continue Reading Below

I've been reading Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series, where a young woman falls in love with a vampire and has to deal with the prejudices of the general public about the undead. We humans are so intolerant! :) I think of Hamlet's warning to his friend, "There more things between Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." Remember, this is "the dawning of the Age of Aquarius." We live in an era of secret worlds revealed, when even the primitive tribes of the Amazon, hidden for millennia, can be viewed on television screens everywhere. How predictable then, that the "peculiar people" who believe that God wants them to practice plural marriage would have their lives advertised on the tube and in print throughout the world. Whether we like it or not, we live in the prophesied time when our secret lives are "shouted from the rooftops:" the Information Age. As with the famous apple, and all knowledge, whether we use the information for good or ill is up to us.
