How Disgusting!

Well disgusting is no word to describe this and I have wanted to write about this right from when I heard the news, but was loaded with so much work and then suddenly now I remembered about it. I know that the whole world has know about this by now and that it is old news, but still I had to mention it.

Children groomed for sex by polygamist sect:
More than 400 children were found in a Texas polygamist compound which was the site of pervasive sexual abuse. Here, girls were groomed to accept sex at puberty and boys were indoctrinated to perpetuate the cycle. Girls as young as 13 were “spiritually married” to men who claimed several wives, and were forced to have sex with their significantly older husbands “for purpose of having children”.
Children were deprived of food and locked in closets as punishment, and severe beatings were also reported on the sprawling YFZ (Yearn for Zion) Ranch outside of Eldorado, Texas owned by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. A number of girls who were pregnant or had recently given birth were discovered on the ranch after a desperate call for help made by a 16-year-old girl.
In a series of whispered calls on a borrowed cell phone, the girl told a local family violence center that she was being held against her will on the compound and was told she would be "found and locked up" if she tried to leave. The girl said she began to be abused soon after she was left at the ranch by her parents about three years ago and at age 15 became the seventh wife of a 49-year-old man. She said she is pregnant again just eight months after giving birth to her first child by a man who would force himself on her sexually and beat her "whenever he got angry," the affidavit said.

Other women in the home would hold her baby while the man identified as Dale Barlow beat her. Barlow would choke her and hit her in the chest and she was once beaten so badly that she was taken to the hospital with several broken ribs. The girl said she had no contact with her parents but knew they were preparing to send her 15-year-old sister to the ranch. While she was anxious to escape, she was worried about what would happen to her if she left the confines of the ranch. The girl has yet to be identified among the 416 children and 139 adult women removed from the ranch in a raid which began Thursday.A number of the children interviewed in the course of the investigation were "unable or unwilling to provide the names of their biological parents or identified multiple mothers". A judge has temporarily placed all the children into state custody as a result of what investigators found when they entered the ranch in an attempt to find the girl.
The 1,700-acre (688-hectare) ranch was purchased in 2003 and built by Warren Jeffs, who considers himself the sect's prophet and was jailed for life for being an accomplice to rape. The mainstream Mormon Church - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - renounced polygamy more than a century ago as a price of Utah's admission to the United States. It now excommunicates members who engage in the practice and disavows any connection with the FLDS church.

Can we call this disgusting? This is worse than that. How can people stoop to such levels? Isn’t there a limit? Don’t their consciences bother them at all??Well they don’t have one right!!! One thing I really hate is draging God's name into such disgusting things and they have done all this using God's name and the use of a church etc. Worst part is that the parents gave their children to all this. How can they be so irresponsible that they did not even bother to ask about the whereabouts of their kids even once.


I have added some photos that were available on the net of some of the members of the church, a view of the church etc...

I am just spell bound to read such inhumane stuff... Why do ppl want to use other ppl to live? That too children!
Couple of days back the news was about Suicides. Parents killing their kids and then killing themselves.(http://www.lbhat.com/?p=166)

Why kids? spare them ATLEAST!

The Pseudonym said...

Dear Frickin Religious Sects, If you have nothing to contribute, in a nice way to society, you should kill yourselves. Are you so desperate to force yourself on children? there is really no apt words to abuse you guys, I did think of some but those would be un-gentlemanly of me. hang your kind selves by the balls.
Cheers!!!

These people, unfortunately, think they have to have lots of babies to "earn" their salvation from God. I trust totally in God's grace---He does it all to save me. But when people think they have to do something to make sure they're eternally saved, they can come up with all kinds of wierd, twisted and hurtful things to do that. Terrorists, for instance. . .

Gangsta Markiv said...

Interesting and why I say that? Because there is nothing we can ever ever do. These things happen around us and we only end up losing our cool thinking why this happened and what would the kids be going through in first place. The victims will grow up and some will not even survive that growing phase, some will run away and become good. The ones left will practice this and inflict this pain on people, kids, innocent men, women around.

It,to me is an vicious circle, which you never know where it starts and how it ends. All you have to do is ensure your kids or kids that matter to you are in safe hands/places. So don't take the kids to the zoo too :-]

Enigma said...

@gangsta
heheh...well ya we can think and worry, but i do feel that there are so many things that people can do..if we all think no, nothing can be done, then wat will the world do...
