    Have you watched this show?

    As an ex-cultist I find it interesting. I had never heard of these groups, so I have no idea if the show is accurate.

    As portrayed...

    The views of women are so backward. Even the young women (interviewed) agree their role is subservient housewife. They get married really, really young. No premarital sex allowed. The "grabbing" ritual is disturbing too.

    Weddings are a major social event for them--a way to meet mates. They feel out of place if they don't marry really young. The women (on the show) don't generally work outside the home or get an education.

    Generally I find it really really sad and feel as though I am rubbernecking over a train wreck.
