Polygamist leader Jeffs hospitalized in Texas
By the CNN Wire Staff
(CNN) - Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs was in critical condition in a Texas hospital Monday after falling ill during a fast, a state prison official and his attorney said.
The leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a breakaway Mormon sect, was sentenced early this month to life in prison plus 20 years for sexual assault. Jason Clark, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, said Jeffs was sent to a hospital in Tyler on Sunday night and was in critical but stable condition Monday.
"He was not eating or drinking enough fluids and also has some other medical conditions," Clark told CNN. He would not elaborate, citing inmate privacy rules.Read the full story on Warren Jeffs' hospitalization

Good to see you are posting under yet another handle. I think this is a good example of: Same sh!t. Different name.
I do crystal meth and suffer from multiple personality disorder. Please forgive my inconsistencies and ignore anything I say. Also, I wish the secularists of every nation would come to my house and we could party like it's 1910 all over again!
CrystalRiver above is a fake. Atheists, can't you get some creativity? You look down on 1910 but without 1910, there could not have been 2011. Your ignorance on history is a disease.
Whichever wicked Atheist is pretending to be "The Original" to attempt to defame my CrystalRiver name, your foolish tactics won't work. The Atheists know I do crystal meth but do not understand that it is my way of communicating with God. You stupid Atheist defamers have no power over the real me who is in Christ Jesus, unlike the futile western ways.
I say let the idiot starve himself to death... he will only be a martyr to the few hundred, maybe thousand that he matters to and it would take the burden off the State of Texas to feed, house, and care for another child abuser. My guess is he's trying to do this for two reasons, a) he's wanting to remain in the public spotlight and b) he's been targeted in prison by big men who have little or no tolerance for child molesters.
Hey, Guido – you want the perv's chocolate milk? Here.. give my his sandwich.
============ Like I said before this guy was even tried, he needs to go to an insaneassylum–he is crazy. (So are his followers, including his consenting wives.) =============
They should try to heal him by locking him in an indian sweat lodge for 48 hours.
Mormons need to read the Bible. They won't get rid of their deadly errors unless they value God's Word over sticking to their group.
So you prefer one work of fiction over another?
Jim, the existence of USA is not based on a fiction but on the Bible. The Bible liberated Europe and the world and created America because the Bible is real. Only secular American believe and adhere sci-fi fictions too much. A national disease.
@CrystalRiverThe US is NOT a Christian Nation.... READ some history books, will you?
"fiction but on the Bible"...are they not the same thing?
Then again, I'm an illiterate bu tt-monkey, so what do I know?
CrystalRiver just above is a fake.
He is losing faith in his ego.......how sad. His god's will is being done and he shouldn't be giving up so easily.
How sad. We seem to treat all of god's prophets so badly.
Jeffs may die. His blood will be on all of your hands. God will be pis_sed.
The economic crisis, the droughts, and the hurricane are evidence of god's displeasure over the treatment of His prophet.
Just tryin' to save you from god's wrath.
Wanna divvy up the wives ?
For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
1 John 2:16
Sure, but let's check ages and you take the fat ones - It's what Jesus would do, if He wasn't dead...
You quoted: "For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world."
In this case, OMG and me are doing unto others. He is in jail, possibly dying. His wives need company.
I think Jeffs would find it comforting to know his wives are receiving the ol' holy sacrament a couple of times a day. Yes?
Don't be a prude. Didn't Jesus say to love thy neighbor as thy self? At least I'm not loving myself...
@David – sooo David, old man, how long have you been interested in young girls? Jeffs a Prophet? Sure he is, which is another solid bit of evidence that there is no god and no use for a god in the world today. Using religion as an excuse to abuse children is typical and has an historic precedence, sure. God's wrath upon us for putting away someone like Jeffs? Now, that is surely the best fictional statement I've read on here in a while. Thanks for the laugh.. Satire is GREAT...
Know What, I suppose reading a Psychology book is beyond your attention span?
And, yes, I do know I have typos in my postings. I am using an old computer that isn’t compatible with the Net today.
"And, yes, I do know I have typos in my postings. I am using an old computer that isn’t compatible with the Net today."
That is just an excuse and has nothing to do with not being compatible with the internet.
What?... read a Psychology book to confirm the narcissistic tendencies of Moses, Paul and Mohammad?
Get that man some wives stat!
No, doctor! Surely he will OD if we give him any more wives!
stone him! stone him! is what we hear today!
I meant to write Equalling, not equally. I’m on an old computer.
The man's a coward, not even trying to die boldly.
Blinded by the sins of Pride (Narcissism in today’s verbage), Greed (power, control, hence equally Predator).
"Blinded by the sins of Pride (Narcissism in today’s verbage), Greed (power, control,"
Sounds a lot like Moses, Paul of Tarsus, Mohammad and a bunch of others...
Know What, I wrote a response to your question. My post wasn’t accepted so I wrote it on it’s own and it’s on top of this page.
Know-What has no idea on the men he mentioned. Illiterate atheists.
