This reunion cannot happen soon enough.

This whole affair just makes me sick.

I agree. But, it looks like it is going to be a drawn out and messy ordeal.

Now if the lower court would just obey the higher court!

Hi Candace,

Yeah, it looks like the weekend rest helped the lower court judge to come around. But, this thing is far from over.

I want these polygamist communities to be treated with compassion, and I want them to open up so that folks living therein are free to abandon the fundamentalist lifestyle if they so choose.

I also want all real abuse to stop and the perpetrators prosecuted. But, I worry that the way Texas CPS has handled this may backfire. The communities, out of fear, may now withdraw further into themselves, where unrighteous dominion can continue unchecked.

I am so disappointed in the initial response by Texas, but I must also add that I am very proud of the way the Appellate and Supreme Courts have conducted themselves. At last, Texas justice!

It was good hearing from you my friend!

A.W.
