Escaped FLDS Prophet Bride, Rebecca Musser, speaks about the Lifetime Network’s new movie, Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs
Tonight is the world premiere of Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs, a Lifetime Entertainment Services (Lifetime Network) movie based on Stephen Singular‘s book, When Men Become Gods. I have to admit it’s a little unnerving to see an actress portray me in a movie, especially when I’ve never met, spoken to, or been interviewed by Stephen Singular or the Lifetime Network.
After the the movie, hear me speak about my involvement in the FLDS story on the one-hour documentary, Warren Jeffs: Beyond The Headlines.
Taking into account an entertainment network’s goals for driving viewership and their creative license to change the story line, I do have a few hopes for the movie:
I hope the movie respectfully portrays the people under the control and manipulation of the FLDS leadership, and serves as a source of healing and not one of more violation.
I hope the movie sheds light on the sheer resilience and indomitable spirit that exists within every human being, and demonstrates how our personal choices can profoundly impact the lives of many, making positive change possible for a group, culture, and planet.
I hope people realize sexual violence, the subjugation of women, and the violation of children (boys and girls) are not only problems inherent to the FLDS; whether committed in the name of greed or God, these are human rights violations occurring around the globe and in our own neighborhoods. It’s time for each of us to take a stand.
