What do you think about the Mormon sect in Texas

Just wondering what people think about the Mormon sect in Texas that had all the children removed by Children's Protective Services?

Any one want to comment?

I thought the same thing; they obviously have strict holiness standards

You can just give one broad statement on all Mormon polygamous. Obviously none of them are GOD's Holy People, but then again, there are no triniatarians that are part of GOD's Holy People. There are polygamous Mormon groups that are cultic and abusive and polygamous Mormon groups that are trying to live out the fundamentals of the Mormon faith.
Also, there's no prohibition of polygamy in the Bible, and the barring of polygamous men from being elders and deacons and bishops could have an interpretation no one expected... Perhaps GOD does not want men with multiple wives to hold those positions of leadership because HE understands their job, as men of many wives, is to take care of however many wives and children they have. I do believe every man who is able to be an elder, though, should seek to hold that position.

GOD BLESS!
Bro. Alex

PS- I DON'T believe polygamy is the ideal, neither do I want to practice it, but there's the other side.

There is nothing to be said of your logic or biblical understanding...

Ungodly response. If trinitarians are GOD's people, then I guess Mormons can be too. GOD's people are the saved, and to my knowledge, trinitarians are not JESUS' name baptizing, One-GOD people, therefore, they are not saved.
Also, as for polygamous Mormons that are not cultic, I would look into Centennial Park in Arizona, a polygamous sect that allows their women quite a bit of freedom. I would also watch Anne Wilde's five-part youtube interview, where she talks about life as a woman in a plural marriage and about the book she co-authored with her husband. Polygamists aren't all bad.

GOD BLESS!

I've been watching Larry King tonight and it's very sad. These children are without their mothers and must be very frightened. However, they're discovering 16 year old children with several children of their own.

Their idea of love is very sick and perverted. As much as I want separation of church and state, when children are being abused, it is our moral obligation to step in and save them. In a couple years, the kids won't remember and will be healthy productive citizens.

By separating themselves from the outside world, basically they continue this vicious cycle with the next generation after generation. Very sick indeed.
