Life after living in a sect
16 April 2008
Listen to this item

What are the challenges facing those who escape the closed and controlled world of sects?

In early April 416 children and 139 women were taken into protective custody from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in what is likely to be the largest child welfare investigation in Texas, if not US, history. It is alleged that forced polygamous marriages, and physical and sexual violence were the norm. For many of those taken into custody it will be the first time that they have left the ranch on which they were born. With little knowledge of the outside world what will their future hold? Jenni discusses the complex issues involved with Ian Haworth, General Secretary of the Cult Information Centre, and Julianna Buhring, who escaped from the Children of God cult when she was 23.
