A real series of detective documentaries about a sect in which a despotic leader, who calls himself the Prophet, marries 78 wives, 24 of them minors, and foretells the end of the world in the middle of the Utah desert? Here!

It’s official that I walk through it in the evening without batting an eye and devouring an awkward amount of Party Mix. It is both fascinating and shocking, endearing and revolting. It’s very disgusting, food.

In line with the faithful in orange tunics farting Wild wild country and Sirius worshipers – the star, not the radio – of the Order of the Solar Temple on Videotron’s Vrai platform, Netflix offers Keep the sweetness: pray and obey (Keep the sweetness – Pray and shut upin the French version), on sexual slavery practiced in the early 2000s in the fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Clarification: This is not traditional Mormons, but a cracked fringe of dissidents who adore plural marriages and colonial style of dress.





keep sweet is based on the courageous testimonies of several women who – thank God! – abandoned this dangerous radical movement, which forced them to marry men of the age of their great-grandfather.

For four one-hour episodes of keep sweet, the ideal format for this type of production, the dark archive images parade before our eyes, and a particularly disgusting audio recording punctuates the fourth and final episode. We hear the nasal voice of polygamous guru Warren Jeffs preparing a 12-year-old preteen girl for an initiatory religious session.

Understand: This self-styled prophet rapes a 12-year-old girl – who is also his wife – in front of a handful of his other wives. Yes, $ @ # & *, you can swear here. I’ve done it in abundance. Like Anne-Marie Cadieux in an epic scene from the film No by Robert LePage.

This Warren Jeffs is a real scum, whose so-called devotion acts as a screen for committing horrific crimes. In the fall of 2002, at the age of 47, this unattractive accountant succeeded his father at the head of the fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and radicalized its already restrictive and completely ignored practices.

Rulon and Warren Jeffs

The first thing Warren Jeffs does? He obviously marries many of his father’s wives! Which technically means that the guru passes the ring to many of the same moms as him. Not very fucked up, the boy.

This sect of illuminati prohibits the devil’s denim and the color red, reserved for the return of Jesus to Earth. Within the group, based in Short Creek, a village straddling Nevada and Utah, members live isolated from the real world, with no newspapers, internet, television or any form of entertainment.

Strict rules force women to wear long dresses little house on the prairie, under which they wear underwear that covers their bodies from the neck to the wrists and down to the ankles. As for their hair, which they never cut, they wear it in a braided bun like in the 19th century.And century.

The women of the sect must wear long dresses of the type Little house on the prairie.

Men, especially the old, have an easy life, they live with a slew of wives, who force them to roll them up every night, with all that that entails. The monstrous Warren Jeffs even offered 67 young women in marriage to his friends.

This rotten prophet exerts maniacal control over his flock. He spies on them with cameras and threatens to burn them in hell at the slightest trifle.

The guru has the power to excommunicate the recalcitrant and then reassign their wives and children to other devotees. He also snatches girls from their mothers to send them to some kind of training camp for teenage wives deep in Texas.

There, after these very real horror movie images, you are surely screaming: but why has no one escaped or denounced this group before? keep sweet explain it clearly. Because these people were indoctrinated in the cradle. Because they only know this stupid view of the universe. Because they live in constant fear of disappointing the Prophet and not having access to Zion, their version of heaven.

And there is this Zion. You will see it inside keep sweet. It is a place located in Eldorado (cannot be invented), Texas where only pastel colors are allowed.

In Zion, the Promised Land, we sing the glory of God with a big smile on our faces. In Zion, women learn the specific role this Church of Fools has in store for them: to be kind, have children, follow the rules and keep quiet. Fortunately, some brave people disobeyed.
