Amy Bril recounts her childhood growing up in the Children of God, a sexualy exploitive evangelical group notorious for pedophilia and “religious” prostitution. Amy and others born and raised in the group are banding together to address a suicide epidemic among fellow survivors.  Also calling in during the second half is fellow former cult member Ana Mony who shares how she came out the other side and is healing herself and others.

The Children of God, aka, The Family, started off as part of the Jesus People hippie revival then became increasingly dependent on their charismatic leader, Moses David Berg.  Berg became increasingly bizarre and perverted, as he had "revelations" that the women in the group could convert men through sex.  He sent out is "heavenly harlots" and "sacred prostitutes" to practice what he called "flirty fishing."

Amy and Ana discuss thier courageous journey to escape the cult with their children and their current work as a kind of "underground railroad"  to support other victims excaping the enslavement of cults.  To keep informed on Amy and Ana's work visit these websites:
