I wasn't really going to post much more about any of this issue until I read the statistics on my sitemeter. What I saw made me gag. There are actually people checking to see if any of these 400 plus children have been put up for adoption yet. Excuse me but seriously how can anyone even seriously begin to think this way blows my mind. The entitled pre adoptive parents are coming out in droves. I do wonder what they will do with the pregnant teenage girls and the girls who have children already. I don't think adoption is even an option for these folks for at least a year. Texas has to handle all of this with special care.
The Utah papers are blasting the judge, the Texas Rangers, and the Child Protective Services of Texas. You can find the articles here, here, and here. The comments alone are horrifying. This sect is not being targeted because of its religion. This sect is being targeted because they committed crimes against children and women. The Catholic Church was popped for their crimes against children. Should it be any less for the FLDS? I don't think so. This FLDS sect broke the law on numerous occasions. Their religion doesn't relieve them from being prosecuted for their crimes. Every religion in the United States must follow both state and federal laws. End of question.
I had heard that this sect has hired TWELVE attorneys to fight this. They want the evidence found thrown out because the raid violated their civil rights. It violates their right to practice their own religion as they see fit. I don't think that they are going to get that done. They broke the law.
One member of FLDS in the panhandle of Texas has been crying "religious persecution." This group has forced pubescent girls to spiritually marry older men. One attorney for this group has said that it is part of its religious tenet. Sorry dude, its a violation of Texas law.
There is also reports of a bed in the temple with a long hair in it. The bed is reported to have been disturbed. I am sure that DNA testing will be done. Its pretty scary that they use the bed in the temple to break those girls in.
BY THE WAY THESE CHILDREN ARE NOT UP FOR ADOPTION. QUIT ASSUMING THAT THEY WILL BE.
