FLDS leader Warren Jeffs is communicating to his followers from his Texas prison cell. He's convicted of child sexual assault but he commanded church members to rededicate themselves by December 31st. They've had to abstain from marital relations, sign over possessions and come up with $5,000 to remain in good grace. Those found "unworthy" are now banned from Church meetings and must repent. Monday, we're talking about Jeffs, the power he holds and what this means for a community in turmoil.Guests:
