Sheriff: FLDS Church Members Praying

(KSL News) — The Fundamentalist LDS Church calls today “a holy day.” At their temple site in Eldorado, Texas, polygamists there are marking it in prayer.

That’s according to police who visited them today. But Texas Ranger Barry Caver says they didn’t get all the way into the property, but they did talk to some members of the church. Caver says they asked church elders about the doomsday rumors, and they laughed it off.

Schleicher County Sheriff David Doran says, “Today the ones that are out there are going to be in prayer, and basically they didn’t divulge where the gathering is taking place.”

He says the FLDS Church confirmed a gathering, but would not say where it was taking place. Meanwhile, construction on the temple continues.
