The insanity of religious prejudice

I think all religious thought is insane on its face. None of it makes any sense.

But when one religious group starts persecuting other religious groups because of different beliefs about marriage then we've gone someplace the other side of insanity. This is really the deep end.

I remember my daddy making me cut the grass when I was about 11. Good thing for him that we didn't live in a compound.
But this isn't the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints' ranch, which authorities raided last month in Eldorado after receiving reports that underage girls were being forced to marry much older men.

This is the House of Yahweh: a different, even darker sect that the state has been investigating for years. Authorities in February charged the group's 73-year-old leader with performing polygamous weddings and forcing about 40 children — some as young as 11 — to work jobs at his 44-acre compound.

Just leave those people alone.
