Politics & Religion
From the Washington Post, Texas now appears determined to argue that the FLDS Religion, in and of itself, is harmful to children and therefore warrants termination, a strategy that has failed miserably in Arizona and Utah. Now think about that a minute. Indians are used to this sort of attack; US Army fears of Wovoka and his Ghost Dance led to the assassination of Sitting Bull and the Wounded Knee Massacre. But what about the rest of the country? Do you really want the government deciding whether or not your religion is good or bad for your children? Think carefully before you answer. Again, I'm not arguing that child abusers shouldn't be punished. They should. But this kind of standard, having the government judge your religious beliefs, ought to scare Hell out of anybody.
