Does anyone else believe it is a crime, that authorities are returning those children to the parents who FAILED to protect them, and keep them safe?
The Supreme court has placed those children back with parents who gave them to child molesters, without a thought!
I find that children that are 12 and 14 years old…
See…the problem here is that we don’t know that happened to all of them. If it didn’t the state taking them away is abuse.
It’s a tough call here, but I don’t see that Texas has shown that all the kids were abused at all. The ones that they have shown were aren’t going back.
I don’t, in general, have anything against religion or religious people.
That is, until they step over the line.
This appears to be one of those cases. As bad as it may be to take children from their parents, there is no doubt these parents are doing serious harm to their children. (I’m assuming you’re talking about the polygamist FLDS group in Texas or wherever it is…?)
Of course, if the evidence isn’t there, then the government owes someone a lot more than an apology.
Edit: Sorry, I wasn’t trying to imply that LDS was endorsing this behavior. Just wanted to make sure we were talking about the same thing, or if there was something new happening that I wasn’t aware of.
Thank God nothing. Was that a joke?
Anyway, I think the parents whose children were married and or pregnant before the age of consent in that state should have all their children removed from them. Teenage pregnancy is one thing, it becomes something much different when the parents are setting it up to happen. I think that the children who grow up in that community are really getting screwed in the long run, but what are you going to do, everyone has different moral values and we as a society can not choose how people raise their families, but like I said, if the parents are condoning teenage marriage/pregnancy, I think then it becomes a moral obligation to the people not intertwined in the mess to stand up and take care of the poor children who were born into this nasty mess and have no choice in the matter.
The legal system failed. They are not rewarding the child abusers. They are simply pointing out the fact the the way the government took those kids was wrong. It seems to me they must have not had the hard core evidence to make a case. If they would have just worked the case a bit more and got more evidence then this would not have happened.
Enforce? They are merely teaching their kids as responsibility of bearing the truth. If children grow up without the knowledge of faith, they’ll have dilemmas because of the things they did. Fundie parents have their own convictions. For that reason, there must be Christians who will inform the public the bounds of Law. Unfortunately, I cant divide myself into different pieces and scatter myself throughout the world to preach about the bounds. Clow Reed, Yuko, Chitose, Kamui, Lelouch, and a whole slew of others might help. If you keep on calling Gd a primitive idea, what would you feel if Jesus returns?
“And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of man.” (Genesis 2:23)
“And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.” (Genesis 4:1-2)
“And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch…” (Genesis 4:17)
Since Eve came from Adam and due to God’s edict to “be fruitful and multiply,” this describes the first incestual relationship.
In 4:17 one must infer incest for Cain would have had to have sex with either his own mother, Eve, or an unnamed sister.
For other examples of Biblical incest see Gen. 20:12 where Abraham married his half-sister Sarah; Gen. 19:30-38 where Lot’s daughters had intercourse with him; Gen. 38:16 where Tamar had sex with her father-in-law Judah.
People should become aware that many of today’s incestuous abuses occur in Christian families and many use Biblical scripture for its justification.
Read the rest of the website… REALLY intresting…
people use religion for more bad than good. God just wants us to be good people and avoid bad/evil. it’s so simple. you don’t have to be a fanatic, and go 100% by the book, i believe all religions are the same at the core. now to child molesters….. i believe they should be treated like a murderer, they are scum – and disgusting people. who don’t deserve anything much less having the kids back. i can’t believe that people like that are let back out in the society, they should be castrated and put in an island together. the religious cults use religion to satisfy thier disgusting urges. they should be raided and they should have the kids taken away for good.
Yeah, I do think it’s sick. Court is, however, a long and drawn out process. Maybe all of the children will not be returned, and perhaps where CPS has failed, other more powerful branches of government will succeed.
It has nothing to do with religion. Almost all child abusers get a free ride. This is not unusual it is normal.
How sickeningly apparent it is that we were never meant to be in charge of this planet apart from God … It has been a neverending cycle since the garden of eden … Your hope that man can fix the problem is futile , for man was not created to be in charge of himself ….. ” Her sins have massed clear up to heaven and God himself has called her acts of injustice to mind” Revelation…. The free ride is at its end , and hope comes soon to right what is wrong , once and for all…………The only question should be who remains to enjoy it ………..?
