"SHUT IT DOWN" !!! ???

The Headline News folks have been marketing the Warren Jeffs trial controversy almost as giddily as they flogged the Casey Anthony epic.  The various hosts and guests have offered their opinions about how to address the after-effects of the FLDS nightmare.  Two, in particular, Sonny Hostin and Drew Pinsky, have been especially vocal in calling for the dissolution of the FLDS community.  "SHUT IT DOWN !!" they say.  They want Hoary Reid to resurrect his RICO-style task-force legislation to target polygamous organizations (???).  They want the community to die or simply stop existing.  Their myopia and cruelty are stunning.

Their guests, Kathy Jo Nicholson and Carolyn Jessop, seem to have no hesitation in calling for widespread law enforcement intervention into the community.  Send in tanks.  Send in an army of social workers.  Send in 100 psychiatrists.  Send in dozens of new police officers.  Arrest all the mothers.  If Warren molested several pubescent females, the 10,000 community members must be invaded by the government machinery.  These busybody hater-crusaders CANNOT stop hankering for a massive siege upon one or more religious minority societies.

I have no idea how they expect the government to implement such a campaign, but it appears the government might try.  The government has amnesia.  It cannot remember 1953 or YFZ-2008. 

So here's my take on this.  You people are jerks and idiots.  Do you seriously think a massive invasion will achieve anything good?  Are you willing to go in there with the SWAT team and point a gun?  Do you have enough room in your basement for 6,000 people to crash?  Do you have the $20 million Texas already wasted on a raid one tenth the size of the one you are proposing?

Let me, Renn Oldsbuster, explain it to you in terms you might understand.  There are currently three fairly distinct categories of people in the FLDS community, and their numbers could change.  You decide which ones to capture and arrest . . . . . . . . . .

GROUP 1:
These are the henchmen.  This is a finite group of individuals, which would include Lyle Jeffs and the other collaborating brethren.  It also includes Warren's wife who assisted in the molestations.  If law enforcement wants more convictions, it needs to go after the parties who participated (if they actually did) in the commission or covering-up of the protracted perversions.

GROUP 2:
These are the inveterate suck-ups.  These are the people who had NO IDEA of the atrocities perpetrated by their prophet because they were deliberately kept in the dark.  These people needed Warren to be a true prophet (deviant or not).  They insist on his being a prophet still today (even in his despicable disgrace).  These are the people for whom truth is mostly irrelevant.  They see fine robes on the naked emperor.  These people will cling to the Warren myth till liberals vote for Ron Paul.  They will go down with the ship. Their obedience to a false prophet is vain and foolhardy. You CANNOT prosecute these people. Their only crime is their pride and hard-heartedness.  They cannot be identified by any visual means.

GROUP 3:
This last group is made up of true believers.  They do not worship men.  They can detect false doctrine.  They are heart-broken to learn of deceit in those people they trusted.  They don't believe a man is automatically a "Prophet" because of his leadership position in a church.  They are willing to sacrifice anything, but only for true principle and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  These people would never have expected such depravity and betrayal from their leader.  However, now, as soon as they learn of it and absorb it, they come down squarely on the side of righteousness and will gladly link arms with other equally sincere saints.  If you persecute these people, you can expect to face eternal repercussions. 
--------------------------------------
So, crusader, explain to me how you will carry out your grand invasion.  Maybe you had better spend more of your busybody energies looking for a needle in a haystack or preparing for the day when Obama, Bernanke and Sir Evelyn come for you.

I think that what Warren Jeffs did is horrific.  Many of those little girls are probably 17 or 18 or 19 years old now.  Are they still pining for Warren to come home?  How much counseling and healing must they eventually undergo in order not to have torment for the rest of their lives?  Are their families giving them the emotional support they need?

Let us not forget that this travesty occurred on a somewhat limited scale.  I am unaware of any more male perpetrators other than Warren.  Let us not forget that a few years ago the Catholic Church dealt with an epidemic of molestations by its priests.  Despite the magnitude of those horrors, NOBODY is calling for the eradication of Catholicism or a mass raid on Catholic towns.  It is clear that people harbor a special and inexplicable resentment towards Fundamentalist Mormons.  I wonder why . . . . . . . . . . .
