AUSTIN, Texas - Texas officials told legislators Wednesday that they’re investigating the possible sexual abuse of some young boys taken from a polygamist sect’s ranch, as well as broken bones among other children.Thet's done gone an' did it, by Gawd! NOW they gone too far. Them li'l girls, I could unnerstan' it. Some o'em looked to be purty sweet under them prairie burqas. Even a coupla broke bones. Them kids kin be ornery. But sex with little boys? Why, it ain't nacherul...not one bit, it ain't....
The disclosures are the first suggestions that anyone other than teenage girls may have been sexually or physically abused at the ranch run by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a renegade Mormon sect.In written and oral testimony provided to lawmakers Wednesday, officials with the state Department of Family and Protective Services said interviews and journal entries suggested that boys may have been sexually abused.
One of the strange demographic statistics about the people removed from the cult-site was the signal dearth of teen-age boys. Girls of all ages, and babies. But scarcely any boys between--I only heard the number in passing--11 and 15. Mebbe zero. And the younger ones showing signs of physical and sexual abuse.
That's the wonderful thing about faith. It is sooo flexible. It covers over so many multitudes of sins...There's a link in the Hed.
