Rude Awakening

Rude Awakening


"What luck for the rulers that men do not think."  -Adolf Hitler

The beleaguered members of the FLDS Church may be gradually awakening to the costs-in real, monetary terms-of being led by corrupt leaders.  In recent months, people who lost their homes and families, and those who lost their innocence, have brought suit against the FLDS Church.  A board appointed to handle the allocation of settlements and judgments has sold the Harker Ranch, which once grew many of the crops used to feed the FLDS members.  And trustee Bruce Wisen announced plans to assess a monthly fee on FLDS homes-those who refuse risk eviction. But many of these people live in homes built by their grandparents and great-grandparents on land that long ago was purchased and developed by their families. These people probably assumed that their tithes and offerings were being used to maintain FLDS property and to insure their own security along with that of their children.  Instead, it seems that the tithes paid by the FLDS members may actually be used to subsidize their leaders' perversion and greed.
