Sister Wives Speak Out: We Are Not a Cult!

by at . Comments

Kody Brown and his four wives are no strangers to being under the gun.

Often forced to defend their controversial religious beliefs, the stars of TLC's Sister Wives have been called everything from a harem to a cult in recent months.

It's part of what caused them to relocate to Nevada, where their lifestyle (apparently) will be subjected to less scrutiny. Still, they want to set the record straight.

They were questioned recently by an Episcopal minister who asked if they shared the same beliefs as other Fundamentalist Mormons who live on compounds.

“That is absolutely not part of our faith,” Kody Brown says, as part of a scene that will air this Sunday night on an all-new episode of the TLC reality show.

“It comes from a desire to have community and it is because you’re different. Most Fundamentalist Mormons are vastly different; they have very different beliefs."

“They believe in arranged marriages,” he says, adding that in their family, Brown and his quartet of spouses do not believe in arranged marriages, “Not at all.”

Kody’s wife Christine said, “It was refreshing to have someone be open about our beliefs because so many people in so many religions consider us a cult.”

You people disgust me. It isn't all about the sex at all. It is about having a large family and procreating. And seriously, how do we know he isn't awesome in bed and that's why they all put up with it? Hmmmm, maybe the best thing to do is not to judge people because there's only one true judge. In the bible God actually commanded King Solomen to acquire more than one wife for the purposes of bringing forth more life to the earth. So if God is codoning it, how is it wrong?

Kody and all his "wives" well one wife and 3 girlfriends seem nice on TV. But why would Kody want to only allow some kids to see him sometimes as he goes from one house to the next to get laid? That's just wrong and hurtful to THE KIDS & why would the women allow it?!! He's a pig and they're brainwashed, gullable &spineless!! But truth be told, how many men have affairs and keep it a secret from their wife where as Kody isn't. Kody's just has an uncontrollable desire for sex. I'm really really sure he isn't that great! These poor women need to find out there are men that are TOTALLY monogumus ( spelled wrong) and much better in bed! HES AN EGOTISTICAL PIG! Makes me sick!

I am a pretty religous person and its says a lot of stuff in the bible one of the things is to not judge others. You dont have to agree with someones choices but i believe if they arent hurting anyone why bother. As long as a person no matter the color of their skin, sextual prefrance, or anything that has to do with the way one choses to live, as long as they respect me and me and my lifestyle i respect theirs. You do you and i will do me and as long as you are happy thats really all that matters. They arent hurting anyone just doing what makes them happy. Who has the right to take someones happyness away? No one. And if you believe in god and read the bible you also know you dont have the right to judge. God says to love. :-)

James Brown said it in a song!!
This is a Man's World!!
The average man can't keep his head on straight with 1 wife, just imagine 2, the bewilderment of 3 and the demands of having 4 wives. I do Not know anything about this show, but if these 5 adults and their multitude of family values can (all) get along, who am I to invade their privacy??
