Inside Polygamist Culture Discussions

Several months ago I had the opportunity to spend almost a week with Rebecca Kimbel discussing polygamy, religious abuse and the healing process that comes with leaving a fear-based belief system, or what I like to call BS.

While what I experienced and was taught as a child is very serious and painful, I have come to a point in my life where I see the ridiculousness and irrationality in all of it.

Rebecca and I have a series of very serious (and sometimes funny) conversations about the beliefs and experiences of growing up in a polygamist belief system where women and children exist to serve the desires of men and their man-made religion.

Below is a – series of conversations as we touched on many of the topics we were raised and attempt to explain many of the misperceptions surrounding polygamy.
