Yes, I posted mine one second before yours. I've been following the Mormon fundamentalist story for some time now. This is big news, but I doubt it will mark the end of that polygamous cult and the ongoing abuse of women, girls and boys (the "lost boys"). Just like TF, there will always be power hungry perverts at the top ready to take over.

Also, the Elizabeth Smart case is relevant to the discussion below about the young Austrian girl locked up for ten years. Elizabeth, a young teen, was kidnapped from her home by a Mormon fundamentalist couple, and after being raped and ritually abused for many months, did not escape from them when she had an opportunity to. Her mainstream Mormon upbringing essentially indoctrinated her to yield and obey to her captors, who used the Mormon scriptures to control her.
