Cody Brown: I’m polygamous, but I’m a good polygamist!

Cody Brown recently revealed:

Polygamy is not exactly the best, most delightful and / or fair way of life.

As early as February, in the special season 16 of “Sisters Wives”, the father of 17 children actually questioned the concept of multiple marriage, seemingly accusing God of putting him in such a mess.

When you really start to be honest, you start looking at the sky and saying, “Oh, Dad. You inspired me to do this. Why such a mess now? ‚ÄĚCody actually said on stage then.

It comes out of a season that involved tensions between Cody and most of his husbands, highlighted by Christine Brown leaves the family in November Cody added:

“It really got me on my heels and made me doubt the way I lived. This is a challenge.”

However, Cody clarified something else:

He may be a polygamist and may not always love the world he created – but at least he is NOT part of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FLDS).

Earlier this year, Netflix released a documentary entitled Be sweet: Obey and pray.

He is focusing on the FLDS, most notably his leader Warren Jeff.

In 2011, Jeff was sentenced to life in prison and 20 years in prison on two counts of sexual abuse of a child.

The documentary describes how he and other church leaders will prepare their children to become members of their multiple marriages by telling stories of incest, abuse and abuse.

We say really terrible things.

Cody Brown admits that sister wives have never been equal

About a year after Jeff was convicted of his crimes, Cody Brown highlighted the difference in his views from Jeff’s in his memoirs. Becoming Sisters Wives: The Story of an Unconventional Marriage.

In the book, Cody refines the differences between the FLDS and the sect of fundamentalist Mormonism to which he and his sisters, the Apostolic United Brethren (AUB), belong.

“When people hear the phrase ‘Mormon fundamentalist,’ they’re probably thinking of a small part of our population – the fundamentalist church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,” Brown explained at the time.

“For too long, this organization and the handful of abusive men who ran it have been the poster children of polygamy in America.

Cody continues in this passage:

“Until recently, FLDS was run by Warren Jeff, who was found guilty of sexually abusing children and is now serving a life sentence.

He ran his organization with an iron fist, creating an atmosphere raging with abuse and fear. He not only tolerated, but also encouraged child brides.

“He briefly reassigned the wives of men he considered unworthy to new husbands.

“These are not my beliefs. This is not my world. “

Go ahead and say what you want for Cody Brown (PLEASE!), But it’s fair to say that his behavior doesn’t reflect as much evil as someone like Warren Jeff.

Cody mostly looks just sexist and selfish.

As for the main differences between AUB and FLDS?

Brown also touched on this issue in the above-mentioned memoirs.

Cody in anger

“As we share the belief in the principle of heavenly multiple marriage, I want to make it clear that FLDS practices have no place in my universe.

“We belong to a diverse religious community that has several thousand members around the world.

“In our faith, incest and marital violence are serious crimes that, when discovered, lead to immediate legal action.”

Cody eventually determined in 2013 that Sister Wives shines positive example of a polygamous community, writing:

Shortly after the show aired, I noticed that we had already influenced the way the world perceived polygamy.

I was flipping through the TV directory looking for something to watch when I came across a show called The Lost Boys. The short ad describes the show as “Members of the Warren Jeff FLDS sect.”

That was progress.

A few months earlier, I’m sure the description would have been for “Mormon polygamists.”

But now people are beginning to differentiate between sects and realize that we have nothing to do with Warren Jeff and his abuses.
