The typical Centennial Park inhabitant is 38 years old, commutes to a white-collar job in a neighboring town, and lives in a household with children.But there is one striking difference between Centennial Park and most of the rest of America.He was also charged, though not convicted, on counts of incest and rape himself.
But based upon various journalistic accounts, those conceptions seem to bear little resemblance to the staid, clean-cut lifestyle followed by the residents of Centennial Park.There are a lot of misconceptions about the FLDS community.A lot of people mistakenly lump FLDS polygamists in with the LDS Mormon faith.In Utah, he claims, there are now 150 Mormon women for every 100 Mormon men, “a 50 percent oversupply of women,” even though , there are actually more men than women in the state.

According to a Pew study released in May of this year, 64% of people who are raised LDS in America still self-identify as Mormon as adults, which is higher than the retention rate for Catholics (59%) or mainline Protestants (45%).The In a study based on data from the General Social Survey, Phillips and Cragun show that between 19, 92.6% of Mormon respondents in the MCR [Mormon Culture Region] who reported being LDS at age 16 were still members of the church when they were surveyed.

I am not, nor do I claim to be anything close to perfect. But seriously, I am a cool chick and I made a commitment before I even started dating at 16 to keep the law of chastity. When I broke up with that guy, I decided that I would date only members. After I signed up and logged on, it was like I was the “belle of the ball.” It was a huge ego boost, but what I soon realized is that it had very little to do with me.
