Escaping the Prophet brought badly needed national awareness to the FLDS cult in Colorado City, AZ and Hilldale, UT. This is a polygamist cult that victimizes women and children every day and is still being run by an individual who is currently serving a life sentence for statutory raping two of his wives that were below the age of consent. The program follows Flora and Brandon--two ex cult members who express a deep concern about the people who either still live in the cult or are struggling with scars of the abuse they experienced. They keep it real. Unlike a lot of other sanitized versions of shows, there isn't always a happy ending.
Escaping the Prophet is intelligent, riveting programming with a serious message that needs to be shared. It is unfair that it got sidelined after only 3 episodes, Please bring it back and let the nation see the real struggles which take place there.
