    I hate Texas....and religious nutjobs (I know, redundant)...but...

    I think this is the first time I've seen you post something that didn't have a link in it, wes! :D

    Why do you think it's a big day for polygamists? I'd think you'd find it a bigger day for freedom in the face of "The State".

    I suspect there has been a lot of back door haggling, so lawsuits may not be forthcoming.. in many states you have to get legislative approval to sue the state, there are so many culpible.. the child welfare agency, the attorneys who presented the case, the judge et al.. hopefully they are returned with some type of supervision.

    Regardless as to whether the kids were
    returned to their parents (Which parents
    would they be returned to, BTW, seeing
    as there is only one father for about
    every 50 kids with a lot of different
    mothers?) or not, the one thing that can
    not be questioned is that polygamy is
    a crime, it is against the law.

    And if nothing else, those that have
    broken this law should be arrested, tried
    and convicted if found guilty.

    And it should not matter how many
    of the girls are under the age of 16,
    and pregnant. If there is as few as
    one, that too is a violation of law
    and the person who identifies him-
    self as the one who impregnated
    her has also broken a law and should
    be duly arrested, and tried.

    A law is a law, period. You break it
    you face the consequence.

    So, NEM, the state over-reaching like that, violating everyone's constitutional rights doesn't bother you at all? Yet you're all over GWB like ticks on a hound...a tad hypocritical, don't you think, Mikey ol' pal?
