I hate Texas....and religious nutjobs (I know, redundant)...but...
They got this one right, though. Extremely dangerous prescedent.
i agree these people are nutjobs, but what happened to freedom. good ruling by both courts. i hope these people sue the f'ck out of the state of texas. the police state is coming.
Big day for muslim and christian polygamists around the World.
I think this is the first time I've seen you post something that didn't have a link in it, wes!
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.
But The State would never lie.
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?
