A fundamentalist Mormon Church in Arizona has erected a separate society in which polygamy is openly encouraged and enforced, in violation of the Constitution of Arizona and Utah. The church, whose members own most, if not all of the property in town, is also able to tap into the state's welfare system in order to support their large families. In many cases, the brides are underage and are stripped of all civil rights and forced to marry. All property and jobs are all controlled by one "prophet," as well as the self-erected political system of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ and the Latter-Day Saints.
