… I have, but this is just bugging me.
OK… here is the deal. There is this polygamist cult you have all heard about lately. They are the deluded followers of Joseph Smith, taking his words about how a fella gets to heaven seriously. They are outside the pale of anything resembling Christianity when it comes to their views of God, Jesus, Salvation, the atonement and Heaven. It is a damnable cult. Period.
That being said… What in the world is this country coming to, when the gub’ment believes they can come in and rip children out of the arms of their mothers? Seriously, this is simply frightening. What right do they have?
And for those who want to say that that a 16 year old girl reported a crime read this article! It appears that the call reporting the alleged crime was made from the phone of a woman who had made false police reports in the past and is not a member of the FLDS cult.
The gub’ment is not the best judge of what is best for children. Not by a longshot. I said this elsewhere:
A 16 year old girl reports that she was having to marry and have sex with an older man. The police respond by taking away every child from every parent in the building. That seems like a reasonable response.
What would happen if folks found out about families who sent their kids to an institution, which condoned and even promoted early sexual activity amongst the 13 and 14 year olds gathered there, provided funds for the killing of unborn children resulting from such activity (even when it involved statutory rape) and exposed the children to violence and bullying; all this while failing to care for them intellectually or spiritually? What would the response be?
Oh, yeah… give the institution more money to hire the local police to guard the institution from the ones who could not handle the hell that is government education.
