Hello 2015! We’re back. (We were never gone, really. We’re still answering all your emails)

One of the questions we continue to get is about our religion. Do we belong to a particular denomination? Are we Mormons, Christians, Muslims, or atheists? The simple answer is that we are plainjane Christians. There are a few atheists in our organization. We let them be, of course.

The articles on Stepford Wives Organization reflect a broad range of religions because we research many different cultures and aspects of religion to edify the tenets of the traditional family unit. We believe the man is the head of the household, and the wife is his helpmeet.

There’s a huge pool of information to draw from. We are particularly acquainted with the teachings of the Mormons and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, because as you know, our beloved guide book Fascinating Womanhood and the companion book Man of Steel and Velvet were written by the husband and wife team of Aubrey Andelin and Helen Andelin, both Mormons.

From that launching point, we went and researched historical sermons from the LDS library, including the devilishly difficult to obtain book “In Light and Truth: Raising Children in the Family Order of Heaven. The Word of the Lord Through is Servants, the Prophets.” A book only available to FLDS members. It is composed of sermons from decades of Mormon and Fundamentalist Mormon figures.

Now, we obviously do not condone the numerous illegal activities practiced by the now imprisoned leader of the FLDS, Warren Jeffs. But it should be remembered that the FLDS at one time, were mere polygamists. Though polygamy is a strange concept to us, it is worth noting that the FLDS, like the Amish, existed for decades as an insular religious group in America.

We draw on anachronistic groups like the Amish and Mennonites purely for their old fashion beliefs regarding men and women, husband and wife. At the Stepford Wives Organization (http://www.stepfordwives.org) we see everything right about the traditional roles a man and a woman upholds in marriage.

Filmmaker Amy Berg debuted her documentary Propehet’s Prey at the Sundance Film Festival recently. The film is based on the Sam Brower’s book _Prophet’s Prey_. You can see a clip of it below. It will eventually be shown on Showtime Cable TV Channel. There is talk of a limited release in cinemas across the country. It caught our eye because Berg comments that her film “shows how these tactics can destroy all freedoms and mold a person into a robot.”
