Wat is dit voor sekteleider?

REFILE - REMOVING NO ARCHIVES RESTRICTION Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs, who heads a breakaway Mormon sect, is pictured in this Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison mug shot, released to Reuters August 10,2011. Jeffs was sentenced to life in prison August 9 for sexually assaulting two underage girls he claimed as "spiritual" brides. The Texas jury of 10 women and two men deliberated for less than an hour before giving him a 99-year, or life, sentence for one charge and 20 years for a second -- the maximum for both.

Warren Jeffs, de polygame leider van een mormoonse sekte in Amerika, werd vorige week veroordeeld tot levenslange gevangenisstraf vanwege seksueel misbruik van minderjarige meisjes. Jeffs beweerde dat hij in opdracht van God handelde, maar dat geloofde de jury niet. Wat is dit voor sekte? En wat is het verschil met ‘gewone’ mormonen?
