One has to wonder if she has ever heard of the "Excommunication" of Catholics who don't strictly follow the Faith. When it comes to Muslim "Honor killings", does she think they are just an occasional education? Would Daffy like to take a trip to Saudi Arabia and convert anyone off the street to Christianity? Has Daffy never heard of "Shunning" in the Amish world?
I can only imagine that if Daffy saw an Elder walking the streets of Lister, she would want him executed for Jay walking. Daffy can NEVER be accused of being an equal opportunity bigot, she is dedicated to the destruction of Mormonism, and dead determined to put on those blinders concerning other religions.
This is her latest piece of trash in the Vancouver Sun:
Truman Oler wept for himself, his family and for all of the lost hopes, dreams and aspirations of the people he left behind in Bountiful, B.C. only a few years ago.
In the most emotional and compelling testimony so far in the constitutional reference case to determine the validity of Canada's polygamy law, the 29-year-old spoke Tuesday of growing up in a family with six mothers and 47 children, his mother's heartbreaking disavowal of him after he left and about how little he knew and how frightened he was of the world outside the fundamentalist Mormon enclave.
(Now wait a second there Daffy; you mean to tell your readers that you think being shunned is worse than being water boarded? Being told to keep the Faith is worse than all those evil men having sex with little girls? (Please stop drooling dear, the paper is getting wet). Being told to be a part of the community or leave it is worse than killing those unneeded baby boys?)
But his most powerful words came haltingly when he spoke about why he had chosen to testify.
(Dan Fisher paid him to dear.)
From birth, Oler told B.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Bauman, he was told there were only two choices: Conform to what the religious leaders taught or be damned to hell.
(Precisely WHICH religion in the world does not teach this, Daffy?)
Every day for two hours, children were taught religion at the government-funded, independent school. Reading lessons came from religious texts.
(Daffy, in a Catholic School it's 6 hours a day. In Hebrew School, it's 8 hours a day. You need to drop in on the Muslims some day and get yourself a REAL eye Opener. Want to see the video's of 6 year old girls being taught to kill all the Jews and "Infidels"?)
Even though his mother, Memory, still teaches at the school, she never encouraged her youngest of 15 children to finish high school.
(Neither do the Muslims or the Amish. Want to hang them too dearie?)
Oler doesn't recall even knowing there was such a thing as college.
(The percentage of graduating students in the Bountiful School going on to higher education is 50%. Would you like to compare that to the rest of BC honey?)
Like the other boys, Oler knew he'd likely spend his life making fence posts at a company owned by Winston Blackmore, who was then bishop of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which split from the mainstream church 120 years ago.
(There's the obligatory knee pads for the LDS in Salt Lake.)
The joke at school was that the boys only needed to know how to count to 175 -- the number of poles in a bundle.
(Yes, it must be TERRIBLE to know you have a livelyhood ahead of you once you graduate school. Doesn't EVERYBODY in Canada?)
Oler -- who is now a certified heavy-duty mechanic -- left school at 16 after his father had died and Blackmore refused to allow him to play on a minor hockey team.
(Whoa baby! Let me get this straight; his dad dies and he's pissed he can't play hockey? I tell ya Daffy, I'm going to sit down right after I finish this and call Winston up. How DARE that son of a bitch not allow this kid to play hockey! ANYBODY in their right mind knows that playing hockey in Canada can raise the dead, right? Winston, SHAME ON YOU!)
Oler said he doesn't understand why FLDS men have so many children.
(You would if you actually sat in any of those classes Truman.)
They're often away working. Oler recounted how one of his brothers -- who has three wives "and I don't know how many children" -- went home and picked up his baby. The baby cried. He didn't recognize his father.
(This is too juvenile to respond to. How old is this guy again?)
"I don't know what I'd do if I went home, picked up my boy and if he didn't know who I was. I just couldn't handle it," said Oler, who is now married with two little boys.
(I wonder if Daffy is aware of the number of households in Canada who have no daddies EVER coming home?)
"I can't think of nothing more important than spending time with my children. It's the most important thing in the world to me."
(Then you need to ask Daffy why she wants all the men in prison.)
Yet even when FLDS men are at home, Oler said they don't spend time with children. That's women's work.
(Easy Truman, Daffy's blood pressure is going through the roof. She KNOWS that men rule the world and that don't sit to right for her.)
When Oler was 19, his full brother, James, had replaced Blackmore as FLDS bishop and talked to Truman about having a wife assigned to him. But Truman wanted to choose his partner. He wanted his own house, his own car. "I basically wanted to be my own person."
(So a few million Chinese. So what?)
His grandmother, Lorna Blackmore -- who had left Bountiful years earlier -- was a major factor in Oler's decision to go.
"Grandma Lorna told me no matter what I did, I was always going to have a place to come back to."
But to his mother, Oler might better have been dead.
(Some folks follow their religion, some don't. So what?)
She told him about having had a stillborn baby "in a way that made me feel that she wished I was that child," he said quietly.
(Now if I was Daffy, I would have picked up a phone and called Memory. She knows the number as well as I do. Ask her what she meant, not what Truman "Felt". But hey, what do I know I ain't no reporter, right?)
"I wish she didn't have to feel that way about me. I thought she would be proud of me going back to school."
(Let me get this straight Truman; You kicked your mother and her religion in the teeth by rejected her and your religion, and you thought your mother was going to congratulate you? Has your mother EVER told you she wishes you were dead, not well, unhappy, not successful? Can she be disappointed in you without you falling apart at the seams? Do you imagine somehow that the folks sitting in that courtroom smiling at you have your families best interests at heart? Are you stupid Truman?)
The people in Bountiful are "very good-hearted people; some of the best people you could meet," Oler responded when asked why he agreed to testify. "But they just don't know what they're doing and the harm they are doing and they do it all in the name of God. To take young boys' and young girls' ability to think away from them?"
(Please don't send your children to school Truman, you're in for a very rude shock)
Oler noted that Blackmore tells people in Bountiful about how Canada's Charter of Rights protects their religious practise of polygamy. But it's the only right that they know about and the only one Oler knew about until he recently found a copy of the charter on the Internet.
"I read through the charter," he said. "And in teaching that one religion, they are taking away all of the other rights of the charter."
(What the hell does that mean Truman?)
After Oler's two gruelling hours of testimony, FLDS lawyer Robert Wickett had no questions for him.
("Gruelling" Daffy? He got to talk and bad mouth his religion for 2 hours without interruption and with no questions asked and it was "Gruelling"?
I would have had some questions for him, including one of my favorites: "Mr. Oler,
how many times have you witnessed a baby being water boarded? How many times were you beaten, starved, abused, assaulted or abandoned? How many boy babies have you seen killed and buried on the property?
I would have gone through the bigots books page by page to see if Truman could verify JUST ONE claim. I would have had every fantasy written by you Daffy and asked him to verify the garbage you print. But then again, I'm not like the Mormons, I don't "Keep sweet" and I most certainly don't stay silent when confronted with bigoted horseshit like you present.)
And, not only did George Macintosh -- the court-appointed amicus curiae -- have no questions, he took the unusual step of thanking Oler for testifying.
(What did you expect him to do Daffy; cut his balls off? Sorry, that fantasy will never arrive. Maybe instead, what will happen is what you proposed in a recent article you wrote: If it looks like the Mormons are going to win, "The Courts should simply ignore the Constitution" Now THERE'S a real bright statement!)
