Religious Persecution

Looks like Weenie Rat Face (aka Warren Jeffs) was captured in Vegas.

I wonder how long it will take for LDS opinion to switch from considering Mr. Jeffs as an embarassment (they want swept under the rug) to the point where he is a martyr and victim of gentile religious persecution. Ms. Collins notes that the Deseret News skipped the standard disclaimer that Jeffs is not a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

My guess is that the folks in the tower of power will try to keep themselves distanced from Jeffs during any trial (as the gentiles rid the LDS of a big embarassment) and that they will turn on the Vegas police and start pointing to the arrest of Jeffs as a sign of anti-Mormonism in about two years.
