The FLDS are indeed “fundamentalist” Mormons, but don’t have much more in common with the LDS than the People’s Temple have with “other” Christians.

Theologically the Flds have a LOT in common with the LDS.

Sociologically the Flds have a LOT in common with where Mormons were up into the early part of the 20th century.

Remember, 'twas 1945 before the Lds had a "prophet" who wasn't a polygamist!

I agree that the FLDS is closer in many ways to the original Smith and Brigham version of Mormonism.
