jeffsA television documentary focused on church leader Warren Jeffs and his abusive reign over
a polygamous sect based in Colorado City made its debut over the weekend on Showtime.

“Prophet’s Prey” aired Saturday, October 10, including audio clips of some of Jeffs’s teachings
and sermons.

“You must be filled with the heavenly fire or you will be damned and lose your place,”
Jeffs said in one excerpt. “If you’re keeping sweet no matter what you’re a person ready to give up your
own will and just obey the priest.”

Jeffs is serving a life prison sentence for sex offenses involving underage girls. The marriages
of underage girls to adults with many wives is detailed in the documentary along with child labor abuse.
