41. You're right, I tossed off that word too loosely.
Edited on Sat May-03-08 02:13 PM by pnwmom
These people are the victims of mind control, and it is a problem going down generations. And, from what I read, there are tens of thousands of people like this in the United States. How do you feel about the way things are being handled in Texas now? Are you hopeful that some real change might occur? Or will this be like in the fifties -- in a couple of years, the FLDS will have more power and more adherents than ever?

Your (great) aunt does sound a little like some of these women -- after being raised in the sect, they don't know how to handle freedom. A number of those who escape do end up returning. It's so sad.
