WILLIAM NORMAN GRIGG, former Mormon High Priest who converted to Evangelical Christianity, former Senior Editor of The New American magazine and the author of such controversial books as Freedom On The Altar: The UN's Crusade Against God & Family , Global Gun Grab: The UN's Campaign to Disarm Americans and The Gospel of Revolt: Feminism vs. the Family will address the theme: "FUNDAMENTALIST MORMONISM EXAMINED."
The media has been providing daily updates on the YFZ Ranch (Yearning For Zion Ranch), a 1,700-acre compound just outside of Eldorado, Texas, owned by the infamous polygamist cult known as the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, ever since the compound was raided by law enforcement officers on Thursday, April 3rd, following allegations of a 16-year-old girl being forced into a marriage with a 50-year-old man, Dale Evans Barlow. As of April 8, approximately 117 women and 416 children had been removed from the compound by authorities and are in state custody.
Today, William Norman Grigg will provide the historic background of this Fundamentalist Mormon cult and describe its doctrines and practices, and will also address the question of which group the so-called 19th century Mormon prophets Joseph Smith and Brigham Young would most likely be members of if they were alive today: the polygamist FLDS Church or the "official", non-polygamist LDS Church in Salt Lake City, Utah.
