Wow! I saw an ad for this today on one of the most popular shows on TV, talking about the fundamentalist Mormon CULT that is insanely violent.

“What Shows Will It Remind You Of? Speaking of fundamentalist Mormon cults, Netflix features the harrowing docuseries Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey that focuses on convicted “ultimate prophet” polygamist Warren Jeffs. Under the Banner of Heaven adapted Jon Krakauer’s 2003 book into a scripted series. And in a different though no less morbid light, the Max docuseries La Narcosatanica explored how a cult leader/serial killer in 1980s Mexico coerced women to do his bidding, all in the name of his self-styled death cult.”
“ Parting Shot: “I did what I was supposed to do,” Rena Chynoweth says in an archival interview, and a reenactment depicts how Ervin LeBaron’s 13th wife approached a man she didn’t know, a man named Rulo Allred, stuck out a .38 caliber pistol, and pulled the trigger. This is in prelude to episode two, which focuses on Chynoweth and her accomplice’s actions in the service of Ervin.”

“Sex and Skin: Speaking about her father Ervin’s methods, Celia Lebaron says that “The only way that you can make sure that these girls will be compliant to marry old men is to get them before they’re fully sexually mature, and to get them before they have a mind of their own.” Ervin, Anna LeBaron continues, always couched these declarations in the raiment of divine revelation. But at its core, “It was creepy old men marrying very young, underage girls for sex.”

Kinda sums up the Mainstream Mormon CULT at its core, “It is run by creepy old men who sing the praises of creepy old men who married very young, underage girls and their followers wives, for sex.”

Ervil (such a fitting name) was without a doubt psychopathic. Unfortunate that he seemed to have charm, looks, and charisma that appealed to his “followers” and helped hook them into a trauma bond and psychological dependency.

How dare Netflix, et al., stream these promotional videos, hoping to get their viewers to join these featured organizations!

And how bold of you to raise your voice as you wander in the wilderness, to warn those you encounter NOT to join any of these organizations!
