Gossip Rag Thursday

People_2

Big news this week was all the children that were removed from a polygymous compound in Texas. The government is claiming abuse, the mothers are saying there was none, and caught in the middle are a large number of small ones. A sobering cover, to be sure.

In other news ...

I'm glad Britney's trying to get her kids back, but I wanted to point out that picture of Katie Holmes and Suri. She looks so sad, and that makes me sad. Poor, trapped Katie Holmes.

1. Ashlee hasn't even said she's pregnant yet.

2. Really? We're saying Angie's heavy? Cuz I just thought she was, ya know, PREGNANT.

3. Preying on the under-18 set is just plain wrong Life & Style.

Oh, so this is why Katie looked so sad. She's finally giving up on her Tommy-Boy. And didn't she cut all her hair off recently? This picture is so outdated!

Sure Katie is sad...but she should have thought a little more about it before she signed her life away in a blood contract with Tom.

That being said...Katie is looking so good these days. Maybe being stuck in a sham-loveless-marriage is good for something.

that whole cult thing is just so creepy. I know people are now saying that there was no abuse but I thought there were all these 13 year old pregnant girls! Shouldn't that say something is going on at least? I don't know the idea of totally isolating a group of people under the guise of what God wants never seems good to me.

A group of these women were on Larry King last night. So sad. And he kept harping on the "older men with younger girls" which I thought was a bit "pot calling the kettle black" though I know pregnant 13-year-old girls is a far cry from Larry's situation.

One of the women said she didn't know that their way of life was wrong. He spoke over her at that point but she said something like "it seemed such a pure way of life".

Here's the thing with the cult/religion/whatever-you-want-to-call-it: the girls that marry typically marry around 16. That being said, they're usually paired up with 40, 50, and even 60-somethings. And a lot of these marriages are to RELATIVES! Yup - that's right.

"Hey sweetie, you know Uncle Joe? Well, next week, you can call him your husband, too! And then you can give birth to your cousins! Woo-hoo!"

Having many of my family members in the LDS church - they're even looking at these Fundamentalist LDS Sects and know/feel that it's wrong.
There are sex beds in the wedding chapel for these KIDS... yes, let's consummate the marriage as quickly as possible - the faster these children get knocked up, the more babies we can have running around here for our "pure" lifestyle.

I, too, watched an interview with 3 of the wives, and they are BLINDLY following this way of life. They are taught that to question their leader is to keep them from their heaven. That, in my mind, is BRAINWASHING.

In many ways, it's no different then some Arabic nations teaching their children to hate Americans because we have freedom - that is brainwashing, as they are forced to only have that opinion.

Even one of the boys who escaped from that Sect came on GMA this morning and talked about how it's unhealthy and the abuse is rampant...

(Sorry for the long ranting, but this is an issue that scares the hell out of me... "Under the Banner of Heaven" is a book that forever changed how I look at the LDS/FLDS church.)
