I live in Amarillo, Texas. I am not FLDS. Several children were taken to Boys Ranch near Amarillo, Tx recently. I was a Diagnostician for several years at the ranch. While @ Boys Ranch I was aware that the church library on the ranch had a great deal of anti-mormon literature, film, and pamplets used in teaching anti-mormon lessons to the boys at the ranch at that time. Several boys at the ranch brought this to my attention. Even though I knew it was wrong for this anti-mormon to be taught to these boys I was helpless in removing the literature. How ironic that these were FLDS boys sent to the ranch. I still wonder if their Books of Mormon were removed from these children as I have heard other places did. These FLDS children did not watch TV nor listen to the radio, so time will only tell the rest of the story. My heart goes out to these parents who lost their children to the State of Texas. These children have been taught correct principles and many of the same beliefs of mormons through out the country. This could have been LDS children.

I understand that beliefs should be open to some people. BUT you would not put in there stuff on teaching how to worship the Devil. So with that said I agree to a point. Now I don't feel for these parents because these children have been abused and molested and sexually assulted. I do believe that they need to change their ways or don't get the kids back. I do not believe they had different house holds because ONE man seems to control everything don't you agree? So I believe that because so many of these women where raised from birth this same way they know of know other way to be. I pray for all of them. This is so wrong and Bless the women who started this whole thing. I can only imagine what it was like. I lived in a house that was not mormon but did abuse us in ways they shouldn't have and I believe that we where Brain washed into thinking this was ok. This same man who did these things to my siblings. Molested 13 boys from the YMCA now isn't that a shocker NOT!!! These men need HELP!!!

Texas is known for their horrible foster care system. They really opened a can of worms when they detained adult woman against their will. It is so wrong to rip these kids away from their mothers. There is no proof these kids were abused. CPS is out of control everywhere. Even when the appeals court said to send the kids home they did not listen. What good are courts if they are ignored.I hope these people sue them until they are forced to shut down the corrupt operation known as CPS.The person who made the false report should be locked away for a year for each child she has harmed.
