    Hi there! I’ve tried to post comments on several podcasts, none of them have been published. Why? Is it because I included links and these are automatically deleted?
    You linked to my tumblr, but the link is incorrect: You need to link to my Kingston Clan tag rather than just randomly the 8th page. Thank you!

      Weird! It probably got marked as spam. I’ll change the link, Thanks!

    This is fascinating to me. My Mom’s first husband was Rex Frandsen the son of Burke Frandsen. Who was number 3 in authority of the Kingston linear priesthood line. She told the story of the co-op coming and taking their new TV since the co-op felt it was theirs. She was forced to live in poverty like many of their current wives do. She blamed many of her marital problems on her husbands family, but I’ve looked into this and realize that her problems were more directly caused by the co-op. Burke died in one of their mines and before he could ever get out of it. Eventually they were kicked out due to debts they didn’t/couldn’t pay back due to bad farming years. I wish I had their whole story. Rex died a year ago and my half brother in a eulogy acknowledged the co-op and their friendship. I’ve heard stories of the children in the Teton valley from my brothers and how deformed some of them appeared.

    Where are you true feelings john danial? You really need help. All us do in many ways. But forcing women into sex is not the celestial way. Treat all so.enjoy respectfully. I know you know deep in your heart women deserve more. Was your mom made to feel belittled when you dad made the rules you knew deep down was wrong. We are all humans with emotions. I wish you the best in leading your flock with Jesus’s incredible and unconditional love. Not control people from turning your back. Listen to those that have left. And many morefeelthat way in the order. If you bully people the teaching is plain and simply totally wrong. Clones are not exiting fun or intriguing. Enjoy your fake religious empire. You need help. God respects all that acnowled that. Peace and God bless. No disrespect at all. You can’t judge us all. We all don’t want to see people hurt. It’s not God’s way.

    It’s very interesting to hear an outsider talk about the order in this much detail. While there are lots of missed and slightly incorrect details, it’s pretty close to accurate. Hearing Laurine’s dishonest and misleading version of order history was tough. For anyone to say the order didn’t start out as a religion but instead a business cooperative, …so dishonest. And don’t put much stock in that rolling Stones article. They twisted our words and the actual truth to a near breaking point, and wrote a story so far removed from what we actually told them.
