Description

"A chilling indictment of contemporary Mormon and Christian fundamentalist polygamy. God's Brothel reveals gruesome facts about Bible-based polygamy through the brave voices of 18 women who escaped from 10 of the 11 main religious groups as well as independent families. Their stories include rape, incest, orgies and violence, making this form of polygamy more akin to sexual slavery than to any quaint religious or lifestyle choice." (From back cover.)
