Uttering Threats of God


Warren Jeffs, on trial for assisting a rape – you remember, he was actually charged before the rapist was – has threatened the jury that god will basically smite them with death and sickness.

So, can they charge him for uttering threats using god as a weapon? would he have to defend himself by proving there’s no god, thus no weapon and therefore it wasn’t a threat?

Or would he have to plead guilty to maintain his faith-cred?
