ELDORADO, TEXAS-(KSL News) — Reaction to secret tapes of fundamentalist LDS Church leader Warren Jeffs. In Eldorado, Texas, Schleicher County Sheriff David Doran listened with interest to the tapes obtained by KSL Newsradio.

In it, Jeffs cancels Sunday services and declares his group “under attack.”

“It definitely goes against mainstream America’s way of thinking. It defiantly goes against our small town’s religious belief system.”

Doran says he plans to be on the FLDS property for whatever happens tomorrow. Reportedly, the FLDS Church may dedicate its temple.

Many in the community appear a little concerned with their new neighbors.
