    Sorry, you are wrong on this one. The state has a legal and vested interest, long held by previous court decisions, that the well being of children is a governmental issue. And for good reason. They are not able to protect themselves.

    I applaud those who faced this head on and took action.

    What I always wondered about these sects is how they deal with the MEN, rather than the women. They have guys with several wives, while the male/female ratio in the general populace is about even. If this sort of ratio transfers to these sects, then what is the status of different men, and if some have multiple wives then some therefore must not have any, and what do the leaders say about this? Or do a lot more women join these sects than men?

    Some of the polygamist groups chase young men out of the community at a young age without a means to support themselves. It is tragic for both the young women and the young men.
