Organizations and Websites
Founded by child advocate and anti-polygamy activist Flora Jessop, these two sites feature a plethora of information on the FLDS and other polygamist groups, with a strong emphasis on the survivors of American polygamy.
Run by former polygamist, now a born-again Christian, Mary Mackert’s site has an excellent comparative analysis between the FLDS and the Taliban, showing that the abuses of polygamy can be seen in one seamless thread, regardless of where it is practiced in the world.
John Llewellyn, a retired sheriff’s lieutenant, has extensive experience with polygamy as a criminal investigator and later as a convert to the Apostolic United Brethren (AUB), the second largest Mormon polygamous sect in the United States. After seeing the corruption and self-serving behavior in the sect, Mr. Llewellyn left the group, no longer believing in its precepts. Since leaving the AUB, John Llewellyn has become an outspoken critic of the organized polygamous sects. He has written four books about polygamy with another soon to be published.
