My wife and I were catching up on "Mad Men" on Monday night when my phone rang.
It was Guy Timpson, who is still a follower of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. And that’s what he wanted to discuss.
Like at least a few hundred people in Colorado City, Ariz., Hildale, Utah, and a few other places, they have come to the conclusion Jeffs is no longer their prophet. That is because Jeffs said as much in 2007 and/or because of the crimes Jeffs committed and/or the bizarre edicts he ordered over the years. As far as Timpson and those like him are concerned, Jeffs left them; not the other way around.
In "Mad Men" Don Draper and the other advertising professionals sell products by conveying short ideas often with a basis in emotion. There’s plenty of emotion among the FLDS and those who no longer follow Jeffs. Quickly and accurately conveying the complicated relationship structure is the hard part.
