Joseph Timpson Steed

Joseph Timpson Steed, a one time resident of CC/Hildale and current resident of Mesquite according to jail records, is charged with Burglary, Forcible Sex Abuse and Disorderly Conduct in Utah Fifth District Court. He is currently in custody and will likely remain their during the pendency of his case, which is currently scheduled for preliminary hearing on October 23rd.

Has anyone heard about this incident, which occurred on September 21st, possibly in Hildale? Does anyone know Mr. Steed or his possible alleged victim?

Given that Thomas Barlow's case resulted in a mistrial, I am curious about other charges against those who have been "kicked" or have left the community. For more info about the Thomas Barlow trial, see:

Words of the Sentient:
I used to think that I was poor. Then they told me I wasn't poor, I was needy.
Then they told me it was self-defeating to think of myself as needy, I was
deprived. Then they told me deprived was a bad image, I was underpriveledged.
Then they told me underpriveledged was overused, I was disadvantaged. I still
don't have a dime. But I sure have a great vocabulary. -- Jules Feiffer

So what's your point?

Is someone charged with burglary and forcible sexual abuse "disadvantaged"?

rumor-has-it said...

Most of the people who leave the "New FLDS" religion LOSE it all. And try drugs and/or alcohol to releave the pressure and depression. (After all they know they are damned)

Those who hold true to the old must hold on tenaciously as alot of the old doesnt make sense anymore. But they are the ones who truly live their religion. (They are the ones who say that what Uncle Roy taught is still true today.)

Those who stay true to the "New FLDS" must use Zoloft and/or alcohol to stay sane. With new unreachable commandments and more families destroyed the pressure to keep up is unreal. Most live a double life and know how to say just what you want to hear and avoid conflict at all costs. (Approval of the prophet is most important to eternal salvation)

Then there are those like me...who had a great childhood and loved plural marriage, loved getting a new mom and new grandmas. And yet will never wear their hairstyles or dresses (again)... But just want to live my life, sing my song, do my dance and raise my kids unto the real Lord, Jesus. (Now why did Jesus die? for all sins) I'd say the biggest sin I had was thinking I was better than others and shunning others not of my faith. And judging by what people wore.

Thanks for the insight, rumor-has-it. It sounds like you've found peace with your past. I wish you and your children the best :)

No street you are in fantasia.

rumor

It may come as a great shock to you but there are literaly billions of people on this planet that never heard of CC, Hildale, FLDS, Warren Jeffs or your whole bag of rags. What's more, they don't care. Even more to your surprise, if you took the time to look outside your tiny little world you would find that billions of those same people believe in other gods.They believe his name to be Allah, Buddah, Ashroth, Molech and thousands of other self created gods.

Then, there are millions of people in just the United States of America who profess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, nothing else required, so your concern over WJ or any other profit (intentional) is mis-directed adoration of a mere man, prone to sin just as every other man.

Jesus Christ came to earth as man, died on the cross as man, rose again from the dead as GOD, reigns in heaven as GOD and is coming to earth to receive his own unto himself at the appointed time.

Every other message of salvation is as if it were a vapor of steam, dissapating as the winds blow and therefore becoming nothing.

a resounding amen!
I feel that my greatest sin was not using the brain the good lord gave me,and allowing mortal men to do my thinking for me.we all posess a magnifecent thinking tool,that was given to us at birth, I believe god intends for us to use it.people who dont,are confused,fearful or lazy.there is no excuse for any of these,for a person who truly belives in the God of the bible.

(go ahead street,make some vile remark about a tool,and then ask yourselfe,am I confused, fearful or just plain lazy.) respectfuly,Bluebeard.

Thank you Rumor for your insight and testimony.

I am glad you are thinking about the Lord Jesus and realized "It is not what you wear on the outside, but what you wear on the inside."

ATAR_i said...

Rumor, that's exactly how I feel.

rumor-has-it said...

Muggesy, You must be having a bad hair day, you come across very harsh.

I don't understand why you would say that there are billions and they don't care

I only CARE about those I know and love. I have COMPASSION on those I don't know.

At this moment, I could care less about the other billions across the earth and what they call their God. I am focused on my husband, my kids, my family, my friends, and my people, my country, my world (in that order) with God as the common thread. With the ten thousand people I know it keeps me very busy. Polygamus families don't do anything in a small way (from baths to meals)

Like I said, I had a HAPPY childhood, GOD is a integral part of my being. It comes from a CULTURE that prays and acknowledges him always in a quiet and loving way. I agree we got a little sidetracked, but even that has its merits. I've learned alot.

I don't believe that God is taught to our children by reading the bible day in and day out and saying Praise the Lord every other sentence.
I think we acknowledge him in the small moments every day by loving our selves and loving others. The Kindness Revolution.


If you ever get a chance, I recommend Red Scarf Girl (on Amazon.com for a $1.00).

The part I love the most is where she has moved to America and is looking back on her culture and history with great understanding and she says that "she can never forget and everyday in her heart she will always reach back in love and that she wants to make the future better for her friends and family that she left behind"

onthestreet said...

Carry on, kids, except Les. You leave that nanny alone.

Fredonia Friend said...

Back to the topic at hand - does anyone know if know Joseph Timpson Steed aka J.T., was "kicked" from the community, or why he left? Or, maybe he is still in, but was on a "mission" to Mesquite to do construction work?

I have no sinister motivation in seeking this information, only a desire to better understand. I have sympathy for everyone in the FLDS community (both in and out)and consider myself an advocate for justice, regardless of whether or not I agree with the lifestyle or religion.

rumor-has-it said...

He is OUT. His dad is Neil Steed, His mother remarried Frank Johnson, Frank was kicked, Who knows where his mom is now.

It is never easy to fit in to someone elses family..it does things to the children's mind. And children are smart, they see the small injustices that the parents turn a blind eye to.

Anonymous said...

It is one thing to get a new wife..It is a whole nother ball of worms to get a family. Instead of love and warmth, there is the boys seperated from the girls and the girls never left alone and double duty for each mother. Don't let the girls talk to the boys and yet you are supposed to be family?

onthestreet said...

Yes, separating the filthy wolves from the sheep, and let the rest of the flock be close knit. That is always a correct principle. That is love, albeit no love for the dumb-ass wolf.

Fredonia Friend said...

Street, do you consider all boys "fifthy wolves" and all girls the "sheep?" Those sound like terms that Warren would use to dehumanize young men the girls in the community.

Or, maybe you're feeling like a "filthy wolf," due to strongly repressed sexual feelings.

Anonymous said...

It's one thing to get a wife honestly. It's another thing to go repent from a distance while the prophet pimps your wife around to other men for money and power.

Hey rumor-has-it,

Don’t forget the sin you had of looking at porn while you were running the KCCA radio station. I think that sin is far worse than the one you chose to mention. You are a pathetic excuse for a good person raising children to the lord. My Lord tells me your lord is the devil.

Anonymous said...

Many of the FLDS "faithful" are those that have a history of hard porn and in an effort to hide it, they become unhumanly holy, while many the apostates are those that hyave dabbled in soft-porn.

You'd be surprised some of the porn that goes on among the holies. Lyle Jeffs is King of Porn; and was caught red-handed by an individual that is no longer part of the FLDS.

ATAR_i said...

Porn - yeah, not so healthy, a sin punishable by eternal damnation it is not.

What was warren doing in vegas again?

Hey rumor-has-it,

Has the cat got your tongue?

rumor-has-it said...

The reason it is not on the list is because it is not true.

You had better go look in the mirror.

Typical Warren Jeffs fashion, throw out accusations, tell everyone but the victim, tell them that the Lord has revealed it to you and take away their family, tell them the reason is because of immorality in their heart and give them no hope. All over a lie.

Hey rumor-has-it,

It is true, and you know it. I also worked at the KCCA radio and so did a close friend of mine who said he would have to remove the porn from the computer after each one of your shifts.
Whats the matter did your husband brainwash you in to thinking that it was ok to do this as well as following him to hell. Poor children, with parents leading them to hell. So sad...

Porn hits all people, all religions. I can name a person who lost his family because of a porn problem, and the man to whom his family was given to was caught doing what he was doing surrounded with Playboy, and yet the second man didn't lost his family. Oh well, "he's repented of that now" because he's still a faithful FLDS. Even if this is true about RHI, is she over it now? Let's allow both faithful and apostate FLDS the same chance to repent of their puberty, shall we.

What is sad is seeing anyone wish another family to break-up. Anyone, any religion, that wishes a family breakup will see all the family break-up they can handle. I wish for their family to stay together and their children to know who their father is. I wish this for you too, but I am afraid your family won't stay together if you are wishing RHI's family and her husband to get separated.

rumor-has-it said...

eeewwww. must have hit a raw nerve to get such awful mudslinging like that. it won't stop me from posting. i have opinions and i think i can make a difference.

you know how story's like that start..JELOUSY..OR COVERUP for someone elses follies. your friend is prob a pious person like warren/lyle jeffs and can do no wrong. covering up what he did.

as a manager of a radio station just out of eighth grade...i had communication issues. 90 percent of everyone that donated their time was older than me. i made mistakes and should've turned in the guys that were looking at things they shouldn't have on the internet. at the time i thought taking the computer away would avoid the issue. they have families now and after all i think warren jeffs should've had inspiration from god on those guys by now

ATAR_i said...

Thanks RHI - as a woman, would it have been difficult to address that issue with your male co workers?

onthestreet said...

RHI is correct. If men in position of authority over her, as a young volunteer, influenced her downfall, and yet she is overcoming, those men have been judged or will be yet, and she will stand higher with God, unless they too repent.

The FLDS Gospel is the Gospel of Repentance. This is the very thing that all humanity came into this world to obtain, control over their own bodies and minds in the midst of trial and temptation.

Anonymous said...

wow,street, that was almost lucid,my outstanding disagreement was,"flds gospel is agospel of repentance" the flds is a gospel of servitude and mental darkness,as was 19th century american slavery,where a slave that learned to read or think was whipped or even killed.

Porn is a sickness.
It has been the downfall of the best of men and women.

God forgives.

Repent and turn away from it. If you can't do it on your own, there is help.

STREET's Reply: Granted, those who have become disgruntled and disillusioned are in servitude and mental darkness and slavery of their own making. The teachings of a prophet straight from the Word of God are not at fault, never have been, and never will be.

But you see, the Devil is alive and well in opposing God and His Prophet, and trying to make it appear otherwise to the disgruntled, the disillusioned, and those who are in servitude, mental darkeness, and slavery.

In the end, the goal is achieved. The weak in the Lord are strengthened, and the strong in the Lord are made stronger, while the poor devils are eternally impoverished. God is doing His work.
