Jeffs messes up again

Oops, another false prophet.

Twice unlucky for Mormon cult leader – 3 News.

The leader of a breakaway Mormon sect has incorrectly prophesied the end of the world for the second time in as many months.

Warren Jeffs, head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), issued his latest edict last week, saying the apocalypse would occur before the New Year.

CNN reports on December 31 authorities in Colorado City, where the church is based, were preparing for the worst.

The oddest part is it’s Jeffs’ second failed prophecy. He said it was going to end when the Yellowstone volcano would explode. That’s not something that happens in a month – you would see an increase in activity for months likely.

He’s just looking for attention. How long until people stop paying that to him?

    PLEASE put him in the category with Harold Camping, and take both of their cell phones & computers away!

      Yes. I thought of that. But there is a way to frame it so that people get the message AGAINST him. I was thinking more about the people in the town who jump at everything he says.

    People need to hear about him. He is one scary dude, and my hope is that if people realize just how wrong it is for him to ruin people’s lives, they might see a similar figure in their own life and get away.

    I’ve spent a lot of time reading the books of women who have escaped the polygamous lifestyle. It’s not a pretty sight. One woman who left Jeff’s group also had to leave behind her family. The whole thing is really tragic and the more people who realize just how damaging it is, the better.
