You Had No Right

Missing Mom So says an appeals court:

An appeals court has ruled that Texas had no right to seize hundreds of children from polygamous sect.

What’s more odious is that it is now reported that half the “mothers” that CPS moved to foster care have now been declared adults:

Yet Another Mormon Update

It seems that part of the reasoning the CPS used to keep the Mormon children was that they witnessed pregnant girls.  Unfortunately, of the three that they claimed to have seen, none of them are underage.

When Texas child welfare authorities released statistics showing nearly 60 percent of the teen girls taken from a polygamist sect’s ranch were pregnant or had children, they seemed to prove what was alleged all along: The sect commonly pushed girls into marriage and sex.

When Children Are Taken Away

family at seaside A call is made at night from a place three states away by a person who has a history of making claims of abuse1.  Claims are made that young people are are being forced into marriage and sex, though at worst they’re probably consenting minors.  Regardless of the current moral acceptance of teacher/student sex, homosexual sex, and pre-marital sex, people get up in arms.   (See the end of this post for an update!)

The Wedding that Almost Wasn’t

October 27th, 2006 Viewed 4433 times, 1 so far today

Juliana Redd wanted to marry Perry Myres in a ceremony at a Mormon temple, and her parents did not want her to– for reasons that CNN doesn’t give. So, what did they do? They kidnapped her!

They told her that they were taking her shopping for the wedding, and made her miss her rehearsal dinner. They returned after the couple was to be married.

Now, I don’t know why the parents were upset. It could be religious background of the parents and the woman were different than that of the groom. It could be that she had just told them she was pregnant (the couple are due to have their first child in May which would put the date of conception some time in August.)

In any case, this puts a fine point on who is in charge. Are the parents or is the woman?
