For a polygamous sect, homes have gone and 'apostates' have come

Hildale Brielle Decker pulled a latch hidden underneath a shelf on the back wall. Suddenly, the shelves slid and opened a doorway to a secret room.

The room, in the basement of a house that once belonged to Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints President Warren Jeffs, is about 6 by 12 feet. A fluorescent light fixture on the ceiling shined a yellowish glow on shelves and an old, open safe about the size of a dorm room refrigerator.

"We think this is where they kept the priesthood records," Decker said.

Now the house, and any secrets it can still reveal, belong to Decker, who says she used to be Jeffs' 65th plural wife.

In November, Decker obtained Jeffs' former home and two other residences sitting on the same parcel via the United Effort Plan. It is a land trust once controlled by the polygamous FLDS. In the past 2 years, the "UEP," as everyone here calls it, has remade Hildale.

1. I know one of his children

A top guy.

He's having money troubles, but he is really nice.

I notified the FBI when he moved nearby.... on a ranch.

2. Just because people were raised to be religious freaks

doesn't mean they aren't nice people. Most of them are.

I do applaud seeing the compound mixed up, with "apostates" moving in near families who still believe in all that rubbish Jeffs preached. I think the mutual reality checks will do everybody a lot of good.

And the woman quoted in the article was Jeffs's 65th wife? Greedy old stoat, wasn't he?

As for Jeffs, he's where he needs to be. I hope he stays there for a very, very long time.

3. There's just something wrong with him

There's no way at the top, you don't know it's all BS.

He is most certainly where he belongs.
