This appears to be religious persecution. No?

Taking multiple and underage wives is not a religion, it is a sexual perversion and fortunately against the law of the state of Texas and the United States,

Kudos to Texas. Now, will both Utah and Arizona step up to the plate and do likewise to Hilldale and Colorado City?

"Taking multiple and underage wives is not a religion, it is a sexual perversion"

Hmm, didn't you mean to qualify that statement a bit more?

Dear Morpunkt: I wish Utah and Arizona would do more too, but it's not quite a simple as it sounds. In the past, state intervention has lead to all kinds of sad consequences involving wives and children and after it was all over, they just went back again. It's kind of tricky.

I just hope these people can get some help. I hope they don't just decide to drink the koolaid. The more pared down the flock gets, the most isolated and out of touch they are. I don't think they even know much about what's going on beyond these compounds and Jeffs is clearly a megalomaniac.
