First thing I notice is Meri is still not wearing her wedding ring. Why is that? She chose to stay. Interesting. And what the hell is she wearing? Is that a triple layer thing? Weird.
They continue to talk about the struggles in polygamy yet won’t address the main reasons men lure women into it. Yes most women go in voluntarily these days. But the men use backwards faith-filled ideology that’s out of date and nonsensical. And what really does a woman get in this type of relationship? A lot of people say the man gets a higher place in Heaven with God. He is awarded the more wives and children he has.
This is the AUB wiki. This is where I’m getting my info on this stuff.
The entire purpose of polygamy according to the AUB wiki is this statement.
While not all members take part in plural marriage, it is considered a crucial step in the quest for obtaining the highest glory of heaven.
This is what these people believe. Going further you click on the 3 doctrines and practices they subscribe to.
The first is called the United Order. This one is mostly about sharing everything you have and own. As well as sharing with other community members.
In this doctrine the only notable thing I see is this statement:
The United Order established egalitarian communities designed to achieve income equality.
The wives each earn a paycheck from this show. Kody earns his paycheck from the show. And each of the children earn a smaller fee for being on the show. It has been widely speculated on what that amount is per episode. That’s how TLC pays their people. They also are given bonuses based on the ratings and audience size. Each episode they earn $75,000. The bonuses can be as much as $500,000 depending on the advertisers they can gather up to support and pay their talent. Remember there are writers for this show. The producers/director come up with the premise and say here, this is what we want you to do, where to go, and what to talk about. It is up to the actors/talent to say whatever they want. That’s where they earn their pay. It doesn’t matter this is supposed to be reality tv and none of it is authentic or real. It’s all planned out. The one good thing about this show is if they did not get their shot or they missed a moment they refuse to reshoot. They want it all to be organic. Most reality tv people will do a reshoot. And it’s all up to the editors. 2 of which are very good friends now with Lindsay Lol That’s where she has gotten all of her info. And with Andrea, a mutual friend of Meri and I. Andrea has been on my side for over a year now. We have met in person and we have been trading info for months. I did stop getting updates and everything shifted between Andrea and Lindz. I no longer cared. I also felt it would be very disrespectful to my wife.
Each wife is paid around $5,000 – Meri all the way up to $7,500 – Janelle per month by Kody. Kody makes all of the money decisions with Janelle’s help. The woman are forced to live within these means. No matter what. Anything that is too expensive or out of budget they have a weekly meeting to talk it out and Kody hands out checks at those meetings. He does not allow each wife to collect her entire check. Because that’s not For The Good of the Family. Yet he is allowed full control over the money. And he spends it on guns, ammo, and whatever the hell he wants. Sounds fair? Right? Isn’t polygamy great? It gets better. Keep reading.
The second doctrine is the Adam-God rule. The AUB says this about it:
Apostolic United Brethren
The Apostolic United Brethren (AUB), a fundamentalist Mormon group, accepts the Adam–God teaching, and their leader Joseph W. Musser wrote a book on it in the 1930s. In the book, Musser contended that the rejection of the doctrine by the LDS Church can be linked to its rejection of plural marriage, which occurred around the same time:
And let us here remind the reader that as long as belief in the Patriarchal order of marriage and other advanced principles of the Gospel was maintained, the minds of the Saints were open and receptive. … But with the surrender of the glorious principle of Celestial Marriage—a union for time and eternity—came darkness, mental drowsiness, a detour from the Gospel path, until all sorts of speculation pertaining to the plan of Salvation was indulged in.
It also states:
According to Young, he was taught by Joseph Smith that Adam is “our Father and our God, and the only God with whom we have to do”.
According to the doctrine, Adam was once a mortal man who became resurrected and exalted. From another planet, he then came as Michael to form Earth. Adam brought Eve, one of his wives, with him to Earth, where they became mortal by eating the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. After bearing mortal children and establishing the human race, Adam and Eve returned to their heavenly thrones where Adam serves as God and is the Heavenly Father of humankind. Later, Adam returned to the Earth to the ancient prophets, and to become the literal father of Jesus.
So Adam is Father and God.
Really? No. Not at all.
And in the final doctrine the 1886 Revelation. This is the exact text that I discussed with Meri over and over again. The one that caused us to have differences in beliefs and I asked her why does she believe in polygamy if this is what it means. She didn’t know how to answer me and got very upset with me. She called her Brother in law and asked him about it and he told her to go read her texts and see it’s the sole reason all polygamy works. To me it’s disgusting.
Read it here:
41 And as ye have asked concerning adultery, verily, verily, I say unto you, if a man receiveth a wife in the new and everlasting covenant, and if she be with another man, and I have not appointed unto her by the holy anointing, she hath committed adultery and shall be destroyed.
42 If she be not in the new and everlasting covenant, and she be with another man, she has committed adultery.
54 And I command mine handmaid, Emma Smith, to abide and cleave unto my servant Joseph, and to none else. But if she will not abide this commandment she shall be destroyed, saith the Lord; for I am the Lord thy God, and will destroy her if she abide not in my law.
55 But if she will not abide this commandment, then shall my servant Joseph do all things for her, even as he hath said; and I will bless him and multiply him and give unto him an hundred-fold in this world, of fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, houses and lands, wives and children, and crowns of eternal lives in the eternal worlds.
So when Meri and I had the affair she knew it was wrong. She asked me if I thought it was wrong and I said yes. But I also said once we are married I will ask God for forgiveness and spent the rest of my life paying for that sin. I would do all I could.
The AUB uses this to show that a man can have as many wives as he wants. Because he is promised a higher glory in Heaven. The husband has to CALL upone each wife and invite her up. I guess to his big pimped out cloud mansion Lol I don’t know. But the fights came when I said so you will be destroyed if he takes on a wife that you don’t want or support? He will destroy you how? She said he would unseal himself from her and put her out. That’s what she said. I said so do you get alimony? Child support? She said you get nothing. And that’s exactly what she got when she got the legal divorce. She stayed sealed to him spiritually. And she lost all money, property and position. As you can tell, Robyn is now the wife that Kody defers to for everything. Robyn has taken over and as much as they say all wives are equal. Kody listens to Robyn. He sides with Robyn. They are the main unit and they are running the show now. Meri has been demoted and as I can tell after watching this season, she’s on her own.
The AUB is not that big.
Apostolic United Brethren
Main article: Apostolic United Brethren
The Apostolic United Brethren (AUB) is estimated to have about 5000 to 9000 members throughout Utah, Montana, Arizona, Wyoming, Missouri, and Mexico. Several of its towns are organized into United Orders; the church has established a temple in Mexico, an Endowment House in Utah, and operates several schools.
The AUB emerged when their leader, Joseph W. Musser, ordained Rulon C. Allred as an apostle and counselor, which led to a split between Mormon fundamentalists in Salt Lake City and those in Short Creek, Arizona. The AUB is currently headed by Lynn A. Thompson and a priesthood council.
The AUB is one of the more liberal of the Mormon groups practicing plural marriage. The leaders of the AUB do not arrange marriages nor do they authorize plural marriages for people under 18 or for those who are closely related.
Looks to me like Mykelti made her own choices. She found someone who didn’t kick her out of the house and refuse to help her grow as a young lady and adult. Good for her. She was thrown out and she spread her wings and flew. I’m happy she found a great guy.
Here we go. I appreciate the people finally saying that I am real and maintain we had an affair. Finally they show that side of this.
Meri went to go see Cheryl, my stalker. I have proven she has been stalking my since 2011, without me ever knowing it. Twitter and the police got her to leave me alone. Thanks to both of them for the help. She has lied to Meri and got her to believe her insane stories, yet offers NO PROOF of ever knowing me! She had her 15 minutes of fame and she only used it to make shit up. That’s how stupid this woman is. But Meri is using her to make her own lies believable. The good thing is a lot of people reached out to me about Cheryl and said she has a long, long history of stalking men online. Her own family told me she is mental and dangerous. I’m happy to know that she was watching and screenshotting everything I said or did online for the past 6 years. Now I have changed the things I post and I am very protective of myself and my family. That’s the only good thing that I learned about this Cheryl stalker. You can read about Cheryl on my blog.
Yes Lindz and I have been friends for 21 years now. She got that right. Meri and I met several times. For months. Weekly. She is lying. She met with Lindsay, several times. For a few months. In July Lindsay stopped talking to Meri. Because Meri was driving her nuts.
Look at how red Meri’s face and neck are. She’s making shit up. Keep in mind that Lindsay nor I have ever threatened Meri. Not ever. If we had, where are the police reports? And keep in mind the Disney trip with just Meri and Lindz happened in April of 2015. Meri and I broke up at the end of August 2015. So you tell me why did she carry on and leave me all those voicemails and send me all of those photos, as well as continue to sleep with me if we were threatening her? She is so full of shit. Thank God a lot of people finally see that for themselves. I have been so humbled by all of my support. And I’ve made great friends from all of this.
Yes I wanted her to leave Kody and the family for me. We were in love. She told me over and over again that’s what she wanted. Did I push her? No. Did she leave? No. I made the right choice in ending it. And she has stayed there.
Keep in mind the first tell all this came out, Meri did say I was never going to leave. Now she has lied and been caught. She finally admits that she was going to leave. So what else has she been lying about all of this time? Think about it? Her face is all in red. She can’t stop it from happening.
Until Meri takes full responsiblity and tells the truth about the affair they will have no interest in fixing anything with her. Mariah and Kody know there is a lot more to the story. And because Meri has never came out with the full truth or even anyway to show proof of what she says about me, they punish her by pushing her away. That’s her fault. All she has to do is talk it all out and tell the damn truth. So I don’t feel bad for her at all. She can fix it and change it. She wants to continue to lie to both of them. And they won’t move forward in any way with her until she does that.
Kody admits that for 10 years or more their marriage was shit. And that’s why she found me. She wanted to feel loved again. And I loved her very much. I wanted to marry her.
See. She chooses to stay. That’s on her. She hopes things with Kody will love her again. She wants Kody to say I want you here honey. Please don’t leave. And he never will.
Interesting to see how bad their marriage is now. I would have thought they would have fixed it by now. That shows how horrible he is to her.
