Samuel Batemen, a supposed FDLS prophet, is accused of marrying at least 20 wives, including his own daughter. According to reports, most of Bateman’s wives were under the age of 15. He is accused of demanding them to have sexual relations among one another and him, in a group setting. The newest allegations came after FBI Special Agent Dawn A Martin filed an affidavit against him.

The affidavit says that Bateman commanded three male followers to have intimate relations with several of his underage daughters. Bateman said that it was “All out of love,” and later said that the daughters had ‘sacrificed their virtue for the Lord,’ and added that “God will fix their bodies and put the membrane back in their body. I’ve never had more confidence in doing his will. It’s all out of love.”


Bateman was arrested in September this year while transporting underage girls across the state lines. He was jailed in Arizona. Nine girls were taken into state custody.
