Mormon Fundamentalists

The Latter Day Saint movement is a group of Restorationist religious denominations and adherents who follow at least some of the teachings and revelations of Joseph Smith, Jr., publisher of the Book of Mormon in 1830.—wikipedia

Among several different kinds of practices, the one most speculated about would be The Mormon Fundamentalists.  One of the most common practices associated with Mormon Fundamentalism is ‘plural marriage’ meaning, polygny.  In some groups, it is acceptable for the men (sometimes much older) to marry a girl as young as thirteen.

A large majority of Mormon Fundamentalists have separated from most civilization to live in ‘sects.’  Rural areas are a common place for mormon fundamentalists to live considering it is away from publicity.

Warren Jeffs has been ”president of the priesthood” which made him the ‘ruler’ for Mormon Fundamentalist communities. He also has numerous arrests and convictions involving rape, and incest.

    You can disapprove of this comment. However I have a few blogging tips for you.

    Instead of pasting something in, then ending it with “Wikipedia”, write something like “From Wikipedia:” [<-this should be a link to wikipedia], then use the QUOTE button in wordpress. Also, try not to just paste URLs (web site addresses). Again, use links instead. For example, “I thought THIS WEBSITE [<-this is a link] was interesting if you’d like to learn more.”

    You’ll get the hang of it.

    – nic.
