Good News For All You Guys With Multiple Wives

Good news. A Texas Court of Appeals has ruled that the state should not have removed all the children from the FLDS polygamist compound. Basically saying what I said several weeks ago, the court ruled that the state did not show that the children were in immediate danger, nor was the weird polygamist cult's belief system enough to justify taking children from their mothers.

Actually, it doesn't say much at all for the polygamist aspect of this, but it is rather nice that the government isn't being allowed to skirt the law just because this is a weird creepy group.
