Having your homes taken from you. The people speak.

Periodically, I feel called upon to add the disclaimer that this blog does not endorse the FLDS faith. What I do endorse is their right in this constitional form of Government, to own property in the way they see best, and to practice their religion. These are reserved, polite people that are articulate and are within the self imposed restraints of what they see as good behavior, passionate.

I am not FLDS and never will be, but in being Orthodox Presbyterian, I need protections, or at least would enjoy protections that if granted to me, are consquently granted to the FLDS as well. For that reason, despite my religious differences, which are vast, I support them and will continue to do so. Hat tip to Brooke Adams, at the Plural Life.

They have the same rights that everyone else has, and the same obligations to obey the law.

Once they violate the law, they have to pay the price for such violations. Their other behavior is law abiding and they are hard-working people - but that does not excuse their illegal practices.

Interesting how TBM refers to "them" as a collective. It appears Blues is of the opinion that the FLDS do not have individual rights.

Blues, if you had a brain you'd be dangerous!

Ziggy,

You mean using the collective term the same way Hugh did?

Of course they have individual rights...

'They' also have individual obligations, and some of 'them' may face individual prison cells...

Sorry Blues,
but every time you speak I feel the need to remind you of the first amendment, Isn,t it treason to make a law contrary to the constitution? And your defending those unconstitutional laws are you not?
