The FLDS tag is a collection of my coverage of the entire FLDS story, including FLDS members, ex-FLDS members, and non-FLDS members. The tag shouldn’t be seen as an indication that subjects of photos are members (or not) of the FLDS church. A thorough understanding of the history of Short Creek et al is probably beyond the reach of all of us. In all cases, stereotypes are unhelpful and thorough research is encouraged.
