The FLDS 'seed bearers'

Postby Anaxagoras » Mon Oct 05, 2015 6:38 am

Amazing what the brainwashed will put up with!

(In case anyone doesn't know or needs their memory refreshed, the FLDS is the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a schism from the main Mormon church that renounced polygamy. The FLDS still practices polygamy. The leader of the church, Warren Jeffs is in prison for sexual abuse of children, but apparently he still leads the church from within prison.)

Polygamist sect limits sex to 'seed bearers,' court document says

Here's the kicker:

"A seed bearer is an elect man of a worthy bloodline chosen by the Priesthood to impregnate the FLDS woman," according to Charlene Jeffs' petition. Under a new doctrine, "FLDS men are no longer permitted to have children with their multiple wives. That privilege belongs to the seed bearer alone," the petition said. "It is the husband's responsibility to hold the hands of their wives while the seed bearer 'spreads his seed.'

Well, this is probably the destruction of this sect. The church leaders want multiple wives, but with a birth rate of around 50/50 male/female, you wind up with unmarried men. Unmarried men can make trouble, so the FDLS kicks out most teenaged boys.

Now, you're making most men be effectively unmarried men, or even worse cuckolded. I imagine if this is true, FDLS is on the verge of a coup.

A "coup"? I don't think that's how cults work. You could have a schism, but these people sheeple are brainwashed. Sheep and cattle don't overthrow the farmer.

The question is what traits are they selecting for, and are those traits really genetic?

And what genetic traits are they perhaps inadvertently selecting? :BigGrin3:

I would recommend When Prophecy Fails regarding what happens when a cult meets a challenge.

Such tends to weed-out the doubters and the uncommitted. The rest, who have already invested a great deal of time, emotion, and often money, would prefer to believe one more lie than admit they have been fooled.

A successful cult always involves the control of sex.

Well, that's funny. I never heard them called 'seed bearers' before.






Baby rapers, yes. But seed bearers, no.

A value judgment based on your own cultural prejudices about what a gene pool is for. :evil:

It not like this is an FLDS original in terms of behavior. Only in terms of terminology.

It works real well for certain Muslims, too. :Muhammad:

Jews too. Until they picked up that goyische monogamy business.
One man, one woman. Sounds like some kind of socialism.

With the male contribution limited to the baby rapers seed bearers, eventually you must come to an Uncle Dad and Aunt Mom scenario.
