    Colgrove needs to learn Adkins law, you always loose when you make Hitler comparisons. Here it is just down right stupid.

    The way some people react to books being burned it seems they value books more than human lives.

    I am leery of people who want to force other people's children to "have a childhood" based on their own mores of it.

    This whole effort of trying to set up the library just strikes me as high-handed cultural imperialism.

    Tom Smith: These people are not being persecuted...prosecuted, rather.

    Sincere question: Why would anyone who is ex-FLDS want to move back to that area to raise a family? Surely, she would know the type of stifling environment that is.

    But, best of luck as she continues her goal of a library.

    It seems to me that they are persecuting their own people. Just because a non-member decided to do something good to provide "outside" information to these people, they didn't like it. I feel bad about the books. To destroy knowledge is a true sign of ignorance.

    Is there no end to the persecution of this group of people?
