For FLDS, every day is president's day
For most of us, Presidents Day means that school's out today and we'll enjoy the day and possibly think about George Washington or another favorite president.
For the FLDS, every day is Presidents Day as portraits of prophets like Warren S. Jeffs look down from their places prominently displayed in the homes, schools and businesses of the sect's followers.
Some pieces, like this one photographed in a classroom on the Texas YFZ Ranch in 2008, show a line of leaders who came before Jeffs that the group traces back to Joseph Smith. Included here are: Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, John Taylor, John W. Woolley, Lorin C. Woolley, John Y. Barlow, Leroy S. Johnson, Rulon T. Jeffs and Warren S. Jeffs.
