I've noticed a huge decrease in the bigoted comments against the Eldorado FLDS
lately. I think those once growling dogs who were foaming at the mouth in
defense of the Texas government now have their tails between their legs having
realized that they mistook the government for their master.Pastor
ANOTHER exFLDS member saying the same thing- they don't ALL abuse their
children. If one man did-get him in jail - take HIM into custody, not the
innocent children or families that have never committed a crime.The yfz ranch is
not one big family unit, anymore than your local Baptist church is all one
family. They just wanted a community away from the world. Can anyone blame them
for wanting a fence around them to protect them from the world--- see what the
world does if your different!!!
Regardless of what thse people do, their rights are being trampled under the
feet of the government. If the government is allowed to do this...what's
next??It sounds to me like prejudice against these people. Just
because they wear dresses that aren't the new style, and have more that 2.5
children does not make them criminals. AND they have yet to prove that they have
broken any laws. Polygamy isn't illegal. Bigamy is. Read up on it.
Any honest Arizona strip resident knows Dan Barlow was a corrupt toadie of Rulon
and Warren Jeffs. He didn't think twice about "bleeding the beast" when it came
to fleecing U.S. taxpayers. He was responsible for perhaps the most corrupt and
least constitutional police force in modern U.S. history. He should stay
hunkered down and out of site for good.
Any honest American the knows Dan Barlow can say he is one of the most honest
good hearted people they have ever met. I believe he can, and will give his all
to help in this terrible situation.
last time i checked rape, incest, menatl and ohysical abuse, and polygamy are
not legal in the USA. once upon a time in america lynching was
considered a "religious" activity as was burning at the stake. SCOTUS has ruled
time and again that religious practices must be kept within the bounds of the
Is this mhappening in The United States of America?
What an interesting figure: someone who knows the trauma of previous raids AND
who got excommunicated for running afoul of Jeffs. Nice that he can talk about
what the former feels like; wonder if he can articulate anything about what the
latter feels like. Clearly someone in a position to find bridges LOTS of ways.
Not an enviable position though.
I am a physician in St George who works regularly with FLDS from Colorado
City/Hildale. They are good people who do not deserve the type of mistreatment
they are getting in Texas.The more this story goes on, the more I
sit in disbelief that my country, the land of the free, is allowing it. Are we
in the Twilight Zone? I can't believe anyone thinks this Orwellian governmental
abuse is OK!
Bravo for Barlow lets hope he can get these children back home.
It seems just like gestapo tatics but in a more scientific mean. STAR on the
chest=DNA sampling. Spliting families apart=put on a train and shipped away.
Held by the Texas courts=put into a compound with an electric fence.So how
far are they going to go? Who will be next?
