Warren Jeffs Found Guilty

| 1 Comment

I was triumphantly relieved to read that Warren Jeffs, "prophet" of the Fundmantalist COJCOLDS or whatever it's called, has been found guilty in Utah of two counts of being an accomplice to the rape of a 14-year-old girl. He faces more charges in Arizona as well.

The arguments of the defense in all this just sound so gross. I'm glad the jury focused on the fact that the girl was 14, and that she was told that if she didn't submit to this marriage she didn't like, she'd go to hell. Those are, I think the most relevant issues in the matter.

Yeah... last time I checked, the old adage "seventeen will get you twenty" still works. No matter what arguments anybody uses, no matter how willing the girl, it's still statutory rape. Putting religion into the mix is even more heinous. I hope he roasts.
