https://www.sltrib.com/news/2018/02/08/fundamentalist-prophets-were-preparing-for-the-end-of-the-world-police-say-and-muslim-invasion/?
John Colthrap and Samuel Schaffer, 34, "prophets" belonging to the FLDS offshoot Knights of the Crystal Blade, kidnapped and married each others' daughters, aged 8 and 4 and 7 and 4 respectively. Colthrap was also planning to kill his son, who he believed was an evil spirit. They were also anticipating an apocalypse brought upon by a Muslim Invasion of the US.

Sadly, the only surprising thing about this is how young the victims are. Fundamentalist Mormon colonies all work on the same principle: marry your victims young, and kick their brothers out of the community so you have a monopoly on underage pussy. Usually the "wives" are in their early-to-mid teens, and brainwashed to believe that they're divinely required to plural marry a much older man, so the the authorities generally look the other way unless they get a complaint. And even when that happens, the authorities generally come off looking like the bad guys in the court of public opinion, which is probably why they're so loath to get involved in the first place.

Knights of the Crystal Blade sounds like a Final Fantasy spin off. Or rip off.

Either way I doubt Uematsu is making music for that bullshit.

So it's a splinter group off of a splinter group off of a splinter group that already has a bad reputation for child marriages?

Yeesh.

Just saying that name evokes weirdly intense J-pop or J-rock music in the background.

Also, the title was just one additional word from being some weird romance story. The children ruin everything.

The men, both 34, are the organizers of Knights of the Crystal Blade, a fundamentalist Mormon offshoot. Shaffer was the original leader, but he passed the prophet mantle on to Coltharp in July when he began receiving revelations, according to police.


Passed the prophet mantle?

I think I'm focusing on a minor detail to avoid letting the larger story sink-in.

Yup, there's the print-out, now: Sanity Protocols have been Enabled.
