By now, I'm sure you've heard of that creepy polygamist sect in West Texas where authorities recently removed over 400 children after a teenage girl made secret cell phone calls to a battered women's shelter. Sadly, authorities are supposedly unable to figure out just where that particular girl is now, because her name isn't on the list of those currently in protective custody. I can only hope that they're really just trying to hide her for her own protection. Another 140 or so women voluntarily left the compound & are being housed with the children.
The current gross, disturbing discovery in this story is this...During their search of the compound, authorities recently found some kind of ritualistic marriage bed IN THE CHURCH. Apparently the creepy old men just couldn't wait until they got home before they deflowered their juvenile brides.
It's bad enough that this group exists at all, but that they're doing it in the name of Christ makes it even worse. It frightens me to think of what else goes on behind church doors that we don't know about yet. More fodder for those not in favor of organized religion. Can't we all just have a covered dish supper & get along?
