I don't like it

The FLDS children were separated from their mums today. Something's wrong in Texas. You can't do that. This is America. You can't take over 400 kids from their parents without a case. This isn't a Nazi regime. The worst of it is the 911 call may have been placed by a woman who is known to have made other false 911 calls. This is looking very bad for Texas. How many good, really good, foster homes are there? Five percent? To be very generous let's say ten percent. Foster homes are for children from troubled homes and 'troubled homes' is a euphemism that covers a multitude of situations ranging from unfortunate to horrifying. It's a nightmare come to life for every one of those children.

I want to see an end to the under age marrying of girls to old men. I used to be a girl and I know how I'd feel if I had to marry a guy in his 40s or 50s. That's a geezer; that's ancient when you're a teenager. Those men are nothing more than ped*ph*les operating under the guise of freedom of religion in order to continue their ped*ph*lia. Training girls to be sweet at all times is twisted.

The kids have to be given back to their moms for now. They have to be. Help the ones who need help. Don't destroy 400+ lives.
