Even though they shun mainstream American culture, the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints definitely embrace the American way: they're taking national notoriety and turning it into cold, hard cash. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, the FLDSers have started a website, fldsdress.com the demure prairie dresses seen on the sect's female members are for sale. Maggie Jessop, a resident of the YFZ ranch and a seamstress, tells the Tribune, "Our motive is not to flaunt ourselves or our religion before the world. We have to make a living the same as everyone does." The dresses pictured at left are called the "Teen Vest Dress" and retail for $54.95. [Salt Lake Tribune via Reason]
