Pedophilia & Polygamy…Marrying Teenage Sisters in Utah

With all the focus being on the religious of people overseas, sometimes it’s good to be reminded of the really weird shit that happens in America. Utah is home to more than 50,000 practicing polygamists, and not all of them are as media-friendly and unassuming as the Sister Wives. Tom Green has a compound in the desert of Utah called Greenhaven, where he lives with his six current wives and 26 children under the age of 12. His wives, whom he married between the ages of 35 and 51, had an age range of only 14 to 16 when he courted and married them. Tom admits that “a lot of people have criticized me for marrying such young girls…but these girls were [ready for marriage].” Hmmm – the kid is “mature enough” to enter into an adult relationship with a grown man? Heard that one before. Not only did he marry creepily young girls, he met at least two of them after marrying their mothers. In fact, the mother and daughter who are two of his current wives had kids on the same day, making their sons both brothers and uncle and nephew – and brother to one mother, grandson to the other. Mind blown. “I think most people when they see plural marriage, they see this horny old man that wants to have sex with young girls – but that’s not Tom,” says one of his young wives, who insists that it is the woman’s decision to have sex with him, not his. Clearly, these women don’t see their fundamentalist Mormon upbringing as a from-birth grooming scheme, which is what makes it work so well for men like Tom. So what happens when you’ve been having kids for decades, and your choices of wife are suspiciously young? It means that one of your older sons might have a thing for the same woman, making your quest for her teenage hand a bit weirder and more difficult – which is what unfolds in this surreal documentary.

Turns out these stereotypes about rednecks are correct

Hey, put out on article on Muslim inbreeding. It’s a huge problem. Should be no issue, seeing as how you guys are black metal and hate all religions, right? It’s not like you’re just pushing some commie social justice warrior narrative, right?

Are you mormon?

Gus Butler

To argue that a nihilist-slant shouldn’t have a specific religion to target and should be open to targeting all religions is valid. But to then desire a specific religion to also be targeted negates said argument.

Chris Jones
Guest

Not at all. I just have noticed lately how strange it is that all these tuff black metal Satanists that hate all religion according to them, are terrified to attack the world’s most peaceful religion

Victoria Chakal

Nah, his inbreeding is purely secular.

Brad Barmherzig

Why do you care so much about what religion is targeted?

Lee Patterson
Guest

Simple. Because he hates brown people.

Chris Jones

You think all Muslims are brown?

Lee Patterson

Chris Jones, you have a public profile and you’re clearly a Nazi. Please fuck off. You’re input is irrelevant

Brad Barmherzig

Yeah I get that vibe too. He’s probably a far right Christian or at least identifies with their agenda, nobody else would get so upset at an amusing dig like this.

Chris Jones

Ok Lee “all Muslims have brown skin” Patterson.

I don’t care if cvlt nation shits on Christians. Be my guest. I’m calling them out for being politically correct while pretending to be some edgy and tough counter culture.

Whatever let’s you sleep at night, scumbag.

Chris Jones

What are you trying to prove, Lee?

Chris Jones

That map is super racist. Why are you trying to prove all Muslims are some inferior brown skinned people? What’s wrong with you, Lee?

America. The laughing stock of the world.

Lee Patterson

And more Nazis come to his defense…

Lee Patterson, the wanna be ninja, has no argument. He’s just a typical name caller. Haven’t you figured out that tired old misnomers like “Nazi”-“Racist”- ” Fascist” have no relevance anymore ?

Francis Cotton

I don’t think you know what misnomer means.

Brad Barmherzig

How are they being politically correct? By not posting anti Muslim shit? Who cares. Religion is shit on all ends. There are plenty of FB pages you can follow to meet your quota of Muslim hatred.

It´s a matter of what you can change and what not. To fight a whole religion might be a fight against windmills while the acceptance, of unnatural and harmfull behavior, next to your door might be not impossible.

@ karro dahl : what would being Mormon have to do with marrying underage girls and practicing polygamy(today anyways)? The practitioners of these disgusting acts are cults that are not even Mormon. Musilms actually practice such things on a wider general scale. Official Mormans do not. They are still weird and annoying in their own unique ways but they are not the same as Fundemental LDS.

Do you think Brown people are inferior? Wtf

Chris Jones

I’m waiting for you guys to do something on Muslims
