Cults, Sex, Texas, and Catholics

I haven't said anything about the Texas raid on the families in Texas, to prevent children being raised in a non-traditional religion, because the whole thing is just so stunning that I don't know where to start.

So, I'll just start streaming a post together.

Start with the number. 416 kids. Some of them infants. Texas is claiming that they were being sexually molested? Not even the State of Texas is insane enough to claim that. So what are they claiming? What is the justification for raiding the homes and seizing the children?

That's just not clear at all.

They seem to be claiming that a few of them either have been molested or might be molested in the future. And they can't identify which ones are actually at risk. So they have to kill kidnap seize them all to protect the few.

So far what they've accomplished is to have created a mess. That's probably a good thing if it's important to misdirect attention away from the actual lack of any legal justification on the part of the State of Texas.

That's a start.

At least they didn't come in guns a blazin', like they did in Waco 15 years ago. They did such a good job of "protecting" those kids.
