Read an excerpt of the post below:
"I can understand some people are unhappy about my brother becoming a polygamist recently. He sees your comments and recognizes that things could have been done better. He has tried in his own way to take responsibility rather than run and hide. Whatever grievances you have about all of this are for him to address if he chooses to. I love my brother, but I don't pick wives for him or anyone."
He continued, saying:
"Why would anyone assume it is okay to abuse me for someone else's life choices? That is bizarre. I don't know how well you know me, but I don't have two wives. I have been with the same woman since I was nineteen, and we have had twenty-eight wonderful years together."
See some of the reactions the post generated:

"Nice write-up sir. How i wish people will face their own family problems and leave other people's family alone."
"I noticed that you all get married at an early age.. That's a good thing."
