One of the most important jobs of parents is to provide a healthy, safe, nurturing, and loving environment for their children to develop into unique individuals without fear of rejection from anybody, including siblings, friends, and parents themselves.
In some cases, however, the parents’ belief system, including religions and values, can complicate the job a great deal.
If the father and mother do not share the same religious beliefs, their kids may have to deal with many family conflicts from an early age.
Kids in the family easily get tangled in a heated argument about something they probably couldn’t comprehend well.
When religion is a belief system taught in a cult, an otherwise simple idea can lead to acts of violence and even death.
Lori Vallow Daybell, a mother from Arizona, took religious differences in her family to a lethal level. She is a cult follower whose mission is to eliminate evil from Earth.
Chad Daybell, the cult leader and her current husband, made her believe a demon inside her ex-husband Charles Vallow and her two children, Tylee Ashlyn Ryan (16) and Joshua Jaxon.
“J.J.” Vallow (7) were zombies. All three are dead now. Chad and Lori Dybell are allegedly involved in the deaths of Tylee and J.J.
10 Patient Mother
Lori and Charles Vallow married in February 2006. Charles was Lori’s fourth husband. The couple raised two kids – Tylee, Lori’s daughter from a former marriage, and J.J., an adopted son.
April Raymond, a family friend, said that Lori seemed to be the ideal mother for J.J., diagnosed with autism.
Raymond admired how patient Lori was, especially that J.J. could be challenging to take care of. His sister Tylee also was protective and kind of like another mother to him.
9 Gravedigger Cult Leader
The relationship between Lori and her family began to deteriorate around 2017, or about the same time she started reading books authored by Chad Daybell, a former gravedigger turned podcaster and somewhat cult leader
Chad believes he knows his past lives, can talk to angels, and wants people to prepare for Armageddon.
The first documented encounter between Lori and Chad was in December 2018 when they appeared on a podcast together, talking about the world’s end.
Lori then began to believe God has chosen her for the mission of eliminating evil. Raymond said Lori had told her that Charles was one of those evil beings.
