dont beleive we will ever see an appropriate governement action when it comes to religious groups-not in a country where Church and State must be separate. It has been my experience that most churches practice a certain amount of "brainwashing", and children are brought up with it. No, nothing like raising your daughters to unconditionally obey men and accept that they have no personal/sexual rights whatsoever. I cant condone that whatsoever.

I think they are just a threat to those who want everyone to be the same as them. How dare they not comply with our norms.

I think there is hypocracy on all ends from both religious and secular society.

If they do not return all those children , this will hang around the neck of that judge like an albatross for the rest of her life. People will be looking at her and pointing at her for the rest of life. She will be treated like Janet Reno. Contrary to what people outside of Texas believe not many people in Texas agreed with this action. Yes ,FDLS people will become rich at the expense of the state. Hopefully, CPS will be forced to change the way it opperates in Texas.

I agree that CPS had no right to take all children. I do not agree with children or person's under the age of 18 getting married. I do think that CPS does get the job done but not all the time. CPS is not perfect and sometimes screws things up, this case being a big time screw up.
I feel sorry for the children in this case. These poor children are the victims in this case. They have no say in how they are raised.
On another note, I would love to be able to live on a ranch or a piece of land the size of theirs! Away from civilization, such a this! LOL With friends, family, etc. Not necessarily in a religious sect but just away, where I could live as I wish and just visit town as needed. Away from traffic, etc. Wouldn't that be nice. I have always admired the Amish for that reason.
