9/26/07: Fundamentalist Mormonism
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – Polygamist-sect leader Warren Jeffs was relying on an argument made by his attorneys that his trial for arranging the marriage of an under-aged girl was really about religious persecution. Yesterday, a jury dismissed the idea and convicted him on two felony charges. The jurors said the case was really about the age of the bride: she was 14 at the time. We're talking about the case and about the fallout of the verdict. We're also looking at the history and the future of fundamentalist Mormonism.
