Court Ruling in Texas

"Court: Texas Had No Right to Keep Polygamy Kids"

"An appeals court ruled today that Texas didn't have the authority to keep dozens of children from a polygamist sect in state custody. The Third Court of Appeals in Austin, in response to motions from at least 50 sect mothers, ruled that Child Protective Services did not present enough evidence at a hearing last month that their children were at risk of abuse to justify keeping them in state custody. "

"The court said that the state had not demonstrated that the children were in immediate danger and that Judge Barbara Walther abused her discretion in failing to return the children to their families. "

Whether or not you believe polygamy is right or wrong, NO ONE should be persecuted for their religious beliefs.
