....This is so wierd and not normal!
A petition filed earlier this year reveals that women in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are impregnated by a select group of men known as 'seed bearers.' Charlene Jeffs (left), whose estranged brother-in-law Warren (wives of Warren inset) ran the church, was attempting to get custody of her children from her husband Lyle (right) when she described the practice during which one or multiple men are selected to have sex with a woman to get her pregnant.According to source, The woman's husband meanwhile must sit in the room while this man or men have sex with his wife
, holding her hand the entire time.
in a clear er term,'A seed bearer is an elect man of a worthy bloodline chosen by the Priesthood to impregnate the FLDS woman,' wrote Jeffs in her petition which was obtained by The Salt Lake Tribune.
'FLDS men are no longer permitted to have children with their multiple wives. That privilege belongs to the seed bearer alone.
'It is the husband's responsibility to hold the hands of their wives while the seed bearer "spreads his seed."
'In layman terms, the husband is required to sit in the room while the chosen seed bearer, or a couple of them, rape his wife or wives.'
Soon after this document was filed Lyle agreed to share custody with Charlene with the children living with their mother according to CNN.
Sam Brower, a private investigator who has been following the FLDS closely for 10 years now and wrote the book Prophet's Prey about the church, claims he has spoken to multiple people who support Charlene's claims of 'seed bearers.'
'It's ritualistic procreation, performed on a ritualistic bed-slash-altar,' said Brower.
more shocking however is the claim made by Brower that husbands and wives are only allowed to touch when the wife is being impregnated by the 'seed bearer' or 'bearers,' and that any touching outside that is viewed as adultery - even a handshake.
'I'm 100 percent satisfied as a private investigator that it exists,' said Brower of the practice.
Children in the church meanwhile can be moved between families and parents as officials see fit according to Charlene.
'In the FLDS Church, children belong to the Priesthood and can be transferred to different mothers or different parents all together upon an order from the Priesthood,' she said in her petition.
This treatment, combined with the idea of her 14-year-old daughter being forced to get pregnant by 'seed bearers' is why why Charlene filed for custody.
Her former husband Lyle continues to run the church while his brother Warren is behind bars, though Warren is still considered the propher.
....It never ceases to amaze me how many gullible and easily manipulated people there are in the name of religion. How could any decent person think that this is acceptable? Or agree to take part in it?...but what's our take on this?? (mailonline)
