Omdahl: Former Hutterites take issues to public square
A group of nine ex-Hutterites are going to great lengths to denounce the theology and governance flaws of Hutterite colonies in North Dakota and Canada.
They are now touting a second book about their experiences and taking their case to the secular world.
The Hutterite religion first appeared in Europe in 1528 and was named for a dynamic leader, Jakob Hutter, in the 1600s. Believers came to America in the 1870s and settled in South Dakota, Montana, North Dakota and Canada.
