F.B.I. Most Wanted Polygamist Nabbed

Warren Jeffs, a polygamist on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list, was nabbed late last night on I15 just north of Las Vegas in his red SUV Cadillac Escalade on a routine traffic stop. Jeffs is the fifty-year old leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints. He is wanted for suspicion of sexual misconduct in UT and AZ for purportedly arranging marriages between major males and minor females. Now Jeffs no longer has the notoriety of being grouped with Osama bin Laden but is relegated to defendants in sex cases with the likes of John Karr.

Nice quip, J. As the country seems to be deviating from the traditional meaning of
marriage, as it reexamines the Islamic faith, and as embraces the critically acclaimed Big Love (HBO series), it seems only logical that the nation look anew at traditional Mormon teaching and early Jewish/Chrisitian leaders' embrace of this controversial concept.
