I couldn't care less about the polygamy. It's none of my business if someone wants to be part of a more-than-two marriage.

The issue of 'marrying' underage girls - coerced, at that - however, is totally unacceptable.

Frankly, I think it's totally unacceptable that anyone under 18 can get married under any circumstances. Most states have laws allowing for marriage under the age of 18 with the consent of parents and/or a judge. The minimum age should be 18, period.

  • Eleven states do not require homeschooling parents to notify anyone that they are homeschooling.
  • States that require parents notify education officials frequently do not collect this data at the state level.
  • Some states track the number of homeschools rather than the number of homeschooled students.
  • States that require parents to notify the state only when they begin to homeschool may have defunct homeschools on their rolls.
  • There is some disagreement as to whether students educated at home through private “umbrella” schools or virtual charter programs are homeschooled. *The Coalition for Responsible Home Education / 501(c)3 nonprofit.
Extrememly easy to fly under the radar in MN, no one comes and does a home check, learning check, verifies what the child is doing the next year, etc. PLUS! Lots of places to hide in the woods!

I don't think they love Texas. The minute they built here I was like what are you thinking? This is not Arizona. This is not Nevada. This is not Utah. Etc. This is Texas, and 'marrying' underage girls doesn't fly here.

Nancy Grace was on every day during and after the raid saying GOD BLESS TEXAS!

Well, or they OWN the town. And everyone is one of them and does the Prophet's bidding, not the law. Woman tries to run? They take her back home like the Taliban does to wayward women.

Yes, when they raided the compound in Texas I was astonished. People yakking about freedom of religion I was like no, no, no. Freedom of religion doesn't mean you get to rape young girls. BUT not everyone knows what all they do, so I had to realize that.

They do not really marry the 2nd-73rd 'wife'. They do 'spirit marriages'. So it's RAPE when they have sex with girls under whatever the AOC is for sex in whatever state they are in.

But good luck proving that. Few will stray. Few will testify. I mean like .000000000001 %.

The raid in Texas, they were all given the chance to leave and I don't think any did. Maybe a couple. I don't remember how that raid got Warren Jeffs in prison, but GOOD. That is where he belongs.

Foreigners living legally in this country can legally bring their underage wives, but Americans cannot have them. Neither the foreigners nor the FLDS people consider them underage, but apparently the First Amendment doesn't apply to Americans any longer.

Is someone on CD really trying to make a case for forced marriages/sexual abuse involving minors being a First Amendment issue? I'm shocked.

The (FLDS) children themselves might have a different view of whether they're underage.

LE showed up at the YFZ compound because a 16-year old called for help, but they probably would have shown up even if she'd been over the age of consent.

? Americans 'can have them'. Many states have NO age of consent for marriage under circumstances like parental approval or a judge's.

There are a lot of girls who have been pressured by family to marry their statutory rapist because she is pregnant.

So to bring this around to the FLDS, a first wife could be underage because she would certainly have parental consent.

If polygamy were made legal, and they desired all their wives to be legal, they could marry them at whatever age the state they are in allows for parental consent.

I'm not sure they would even bother. It's better for them to do welfare fraud and have all these 'single mothers'.

Just as we have limits on our freedom of speech, we also have limits on freedom of religion. You cannot rape little girls and claim it's your religious freedom to do so. Go straight to prison, you filthy animal.
