The embattled Texas polygamist Texas sect that was raided and is one of the nation's largest child-custody cases seems to be a case where the government is going to far and as a result turning the government into the child abuser in this case.

There has been no real evidence of child abuse put forth, and the raid was made because of a phone call, from a yet found 16 year old.

It would seem that if you wanted to charge anyone with anything it would be those who are guilty of polygamy.

To remove 416 children from their parents, when the children are not guilty of anything and no proof of child abuse was found, seems irrational.

Much talk has been said and printed about the woman on the ranch. The way they dress, their hair, the way they do not intermingle with outsiders; sounds like you could be talking about the Amish or the Mennonites.

Amish and Mennonite sects have been looked at for child abuse and sexual abuse over the years but never were all the children in those communities removed.

Amish and Mennonite woman wear period dress, do not cut their hair and are subservient to their husbands and church officials and in some cases we see cousins marring cousins; but it seems there is a ‘acceptance’ of their lifestyle among the mainstream society – so why take the children and make a point of the women in this case?

It seems polygamy, the practice of multiple marriage partners, seems to be the bases of all of this and the children have nothing to do with that. Charge the men involved if there is proof, but too sociologically damage a child under the premise of some non existent or proven abuse does not make sense.

The un-repairable damage that is being done to these children by removing them from everything they know is not helpful to society or the children involved.
