    Default Fundamentalist sect leader jailed for life for sex with child brides

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011...-life-sentence

    Warren Jeffs, the leader of the Fundamentalist Mormon church that practises polygamy, is likely to spend the rest of his life behind bars after he was given the maximum sentence for taking girls as young as 12 to be his brides.

    Jeffs, 55, who represented himself during most of his trial though he refused to attend the final stages, claimed that his prosecution was a violation of his religious rights and warned it would lead to "sickness and death" being brought on the locality.

    But a Texas jury took just 40 minutes to hand him the toughest sentence open to them – life in prison for aggravated sexual assault and 20 years in prison for sexual assault of a child. The sentences followed Jeffs's conviction last week on two counts relating to polygamist marriages with girls aged 12 and 15.
    1 down, many to go.

    So having intercourse with little girls is a religious right? Sick bastard. Hopefully he now experiences the 'religious' ass-raping rights of his fellow inmates.

    Woohoo, great news. Your religion can go fsck itself and its rights if it promotes the exploitation of people, especially kids...
    Internet the way it was meant to be. Launch details will become Crystal Clear very soon...

    I'd love to see someone take out this sicko!

    Did he ever read this in his bible???

    How is he making the kids stumble? They are married. It isn't like he made them sin or anything.

    I'm not saying I condone what the dude did. He is a sicko and prison is definitely what he needs but I question the relevance of that bible verse.

    Ye dude wouldn't recommend using the bible to try condemn this guys actions, the bible is all for child marriages/relationships. One of the many many reasons I don't follow it.

    It wasn't so much the stumbling part I was focusing on... it was the hanging of the millstone around his neck part and chucking him into the sea.
    The point is... this guy's god takes injury to little ones very seriously.
    And to me... introducing underage children to sexual activity is an injury to them... both physically and mentally.

    There is no reference that I know of in the bible condemning child marriage. So while you might personally consider this an injury to the child (and I agree with you) don't pretend your holy scriptures are backing you up here.
