Does any of my readers know or have an opinion about what the state of Texas is doing with the Polygamy Kids? I see that a judge has okayed the children being placed in foster homes. There is something that seems awfully heavy-handed and big-government about the whole affair that makes me wonder if we shouldn’t be concerned. Maybe I’m out of the loop, but I wonder if there are not some civil liberties people that shouldn’t be investigating whether the authorities were not over the top in their way of handling this — particularly because it seems that the charges that initiated the whole affair were either baseless, untrue, or non-existent.
