New today: Imprisoned polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs is still predicting death and destruction if the nations of the world don't repent and let him go. A new set of three very short revelations from November and three long missives, one from June and the other two from October, was received by the Utah Attorney General's Office Tuesday. This is the fourth packet to go out since he was sentenced to prison in Texas, by my count. Read them here. The timeline on these is somewhat interesting. The most recent revelation in the previous packet (received last week) was Nov. 23, but all the revelations in this newest packet are dated prior to that. The most recent is dated Nov. 9 and the oldest is dated June 15. The two from October have been sent before, and may be reprints.On another FLDS note, there are new aerial pictures of the Yearning for Zion Ranch posted over at eldoradoflds.us They show further progress on the semi-circular building, which is looking ever more like some sort of amphitheater, and apparently on a new house behind the temple. Take a look here. And one recap: There was a hearing in the 'Sister Wives' lawsuit Friday. No decision yet, and there likely won't be one for a month or so. (The suit seeks to decriminalize polygamy in Utah; the state says the Browns don't have legal standing to challenge the bigamy law because they haven't been prosecuted under it).
