Quote# 82980

[Jeffs was speaking in court, where he is representing himself against charges of sexual assault].

"I, the Lord God of heaven, ask the courts to cease the prosecution of my holy ways," Jeffs said. "There will be a judgment against all those who prosecute the church. ... I shall let all people know of your unjust ways. I will bring sickness and death. Let this cease."

[Judge] Walther then told him that "if you call for the jury's destruction" while the jury -- who will decide if Jeffs is guilty on two counts of sexual assault on a child -- is present, "you will be removed from the courtroom."

The defendant responded by saying, "I am not threatening. I am releasing a message."

And this is why we shouldn't give religions any special rights.

I, the Lord God of heaven, ask the courts

Since when does the Lord God of heaven have to ask somebody for something? If you're the Lord God of heaven, you just do it.

Flood the courtroom floor and let him walk out on top of the water.

Something tells me after his conviction his fellow inmates won't be lending much credence to his divine essence, quite the opposite: the Lord God of heaven is in for a mighty whooping.

Love to see a mugger try that:

Mugger: Give me your wallet or else!

Victim: Are you threatening me?

Mugger: Nah. I’m just sayin’.

Dude, you are so fucked right now.

8/1/2011 5:50:25 PM


That's one way to plead insanity.

"I am not threatening. I am releasing a message."

Sure you aren't. Sure. I bet that'll show 'em. Keep up with the threats of divine retribution. I'm sure they'll find in your favor now.

Fuck you and anyone who LOOKS like you.

Boogah boogah!

You're not scaring anyone away with your nonsense.

You are going to be prosecuted if you're found guilty, and no amount of magic woo deity talk is going to change that.

Yeah - the best way to get a jury on your side of the case is to threaten them with hellfire. Although, this may actually work in the US.....

It never fails to amaze me how God always wants exactly what the person what believes in God believes in.

8/1/2011 7:03:48 PM


Wait is he saying he is the Lord God of Heaven...cause that is what I am reading. And the Judges problem wasn't that this man thinks he is God himself but rather that he might be damming the jurors to hell?

Awesome. If I ever appear in court for a traffic ticket, I shall declare my status as Athena, goddess of wisdom, and order the judge to let me go.

I forget who said it, but I remember the quote: "The lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client"

Sorry Warren, you're not among your followers who spent their entire lives being brainwashed and coerced by you and your father. You may be a prophet to them, but to the rest of the world you're just a sick fuck who diddles 12 year old girls.

That shit don't fly in the real world.

Sorry, we don't take the religion card here.

You sick fuck. You really think that calling the name of your imaginary God to save you from charges of being a fucking child molester.

Words do not fucking describe the rage.

They never learn........

8/1/2011 7:45:34 PM


I'm surprised the judge didn't cite him for contempt of court.

A fool for a client, indeed...

8/1/2011 8:19:37 PM


The full version is "anyone who represents himself in court has a fool for a client and an ass for an attorney".

Fawful has seen God has a vagina on top of his penis

Two words: ¡PUTA MADRE!

Yet another maniac who thinks he's God. Move along folks, nothing to see here.

You're going away for a very long time Warren, and everybody on the block is going to know what you did. They'll have themselves a laugh and reminisce about their own threats against the jury... and then they will show you that even the most hardened murderer has room in his black heart to feel outrage towards a pedophile. And then they will do things to you. Unspeakable things. Even Evil has standards you see and regardless of whether God is benevolent, sadistic, or entirely imaginary evil shall be paid unto evil.

Not that this is a threat or an endorsement of the truly nightmarish things that await you in prison. I'm just releasing a message. A message that you're infinitely fucked.

8/1/2011 9:23:31 PM

Well, not exactly. You´re trying to demand a kind of dispensation based in your religious beliefs or whatever comes to your mind as such. That´s why they´re warning you that they, as representatives of the state, are not going to tolerate this joke.

8/1/2011 9:42:59 PM


You are not persecuted. You are threatening
I hope you do time
