Everyone knows I am addicted to cult & mob documentaries.
“Keep Sweet: Pray & Obey” documents the stories of survivors of the FDLS Fundamentalist Cult and victims of the polygamist leader of the “church” Warren Jeffs.
It’s an interesting cringe documentary that exposes the victimization of the survivors of the unorthodox religion in which plural marriage is considered a VIP pass to heaven.
In this four-part series available on Netflix, the survivors share their feelings of the “church” after leaving the fundamentalist lifestyle in which the men take up as many as 30-40 wives or more, including child brides and family members.
Leader of the cult, Warren Jeffs was arrested in 2011 and is currently imprisoned at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s Louis C. Powledge Unit, near Palestine, Texas on felony charges of sexual conduct with minors, as well as two counts of rape from the previous years. He was sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years for sexually assaulting two girls though his victim count is more than likely significantly higher.
According to the TDCJ, Jeffs’ earliest parole eligibility date is July 22, 2038.
June is celebrated as LGBTQ PRIDE month and a Texas baptist church — labeled an “anti-LGBT hate group” ain’t feeling very festive.
NBC News — “Pastor” Dillon Awes of Stedfast Baptist Church in Watauga, a suburb of Fort Worth, made the comment and other controversial remarks during a Sunday morning sermon.
Awes read several passages from the Bible and condemned homosexuality as a sin. At one point, he told the congregation that gay people “are dangerous to society” and said that “all homosexuals are pedophiles.”
At certain times during the sermon people from the crowd could be heard cheering in agreement. Awes told the room that he thinks the “solution for the homosexual in 2022” is the death penalty.
Many people on social media criticized the pastor with some labeling his remarks as a violent threat to the community.
Damn!!! Whether you are pro or anti LBGTQ, this is very dangerous rhetoric — especially in today’s climate of mass shootings & violence. Is it very Christian-like to condemn & wish harm or death on others?
Let’s push peace people and let God be the judge! None of us has a heaven or hell to place anyone in.
