Texas Grand Jury Indicts Warren Jeffs And Polygamist Sect
I guess those DNA tests came back.

Grand jury proceedings are supposed to be secret, but documents released as part of the separate child custody case involving the FLDS children have revealed some of the evidence collected by law enforcement during the weeklong raid that began April 3.

Among the hundreds of boxes of photos, papers and family Bibles, investigators found photos of Jeffs in intimate embraces and kissing several apparently underage girls.

A journal entry purportedly from Jeffs attached to a report by a child advocate indicates he married his daughter to a 34-year-old man the day after she turned 15. The girl turns 17 on Saturday and has denied being married, though the child advocate report indicates intimate notes between the girl and man were also found in the raid.

In addition to discussions of the girl's marriage, the Jeffs journal entry also indicates he blessed marriages of two other underage sect members to himself and another member.

3. Hmm, what is it with religion and pedophilia?

Why do the two so often go together? These mormons sure created one sick religion. Of course they have nothing on those Catholic priest who were diddling anything under age.

4. If McCain was thinking on naming
Romney as VP this week, this story will stop that cold. While I am well aware that this cult has nothing to do with mainstream Mormonism, they aren't going to count on the low information voter to make that distinction. All they will see is MORMON.
