Are you happy now? Texas is keeping our children. Satan has grabbed
control of the government and rights no longer exist. Atheists like you have ruined what is decent about our lives. No one was forced into marriage that I know of. How can you defend children being removed since you have children yourself. As a mother I beeseech you to answer this question.
Taking this line for line...
Are you happy now?
Honestly? It doesn't matter whether the public, myself included, is happy or sad. It's irrelevant to the fact that little girls were being raped. That that was occurring under the guise of religious freedom made me concerned and sad for those girls. But, to see four hundred children ripped from the lives they knew, even if that life was poisonous and damaging, does not inspire anything resembling happiness. It's sad. Those children, undoubtedly, miss their mothers. They're probably scared and confused. But, that's as much YOUR fault, for raising them in a criminal environment, as it is the fault of the court system that is attempting to help them.
Texas is keeping our children.
If they are YOUR children, then why won't you claim them? Why haven't you participated 100%, as a group, to identify and clarify the parental lineage of each child? Texas is attempting to do what you, as a parent, failed to do: break a cycle of abuse. In my opinion, and you're lucky I'm not the judge in this case, any mother who is okay with their thirteen year old marrying a fifty year old fails to meet the standard for protecting their daughter. And, any mother who would sooner see her son kicked out of the community than stand up to her husband is a sad excuse for a mother. Why is it that your husband is more important to you than your child(ren)? You've somehow managed to elude accountability for your bullshit, child abusing ways. Maybe it was due to the unjustifiable, mystic respect for the religion of others? Maybe it was because it was easier to focus on the abuse of women and children in other countries? After all, no one wants to see this in their own backyard!! But, it's time for you, and your beliefs, to stand in the eye of justice.
Satan has grabbed control of the government and rights no longer
Whose rights are we talking about here? Yours? Lady, you have a right to sleep with any man you desire to sleep with. I'm not even concerned that that man may have other wives. If you're cool with sharing your husband with other women and see it as a sacred practice, then more power to you. I fully support your right to place yourself in that situation. You do not, however, have the right to force CHILDREN to live polygamy. You have no right to sell your daughters into sexual slavery. Your children have a right to grow up in a non-abusive, loving, nurturing, safe environment and, the way I see it, you've violated two, possibly three, of those rights. What I want to know is how you were successful in turning off your maternal instincts? I feel sorry for you. What hell must you know that you genuinely think you're providing your daughters with a glorious life? You are a member of a cult whose leaders would just as soon dump your sons on the side of the road than deal with them and rape your daughters. How, as a mother, can you be okay with that?
Atheists like you have ruined what is decent about our
Cry me a river, lady! I have a thirteen year old daughter! Let's look at her life against the life of a thirteen year old in your compound. Let's behold the "decency" of your life.
My daughter is a whole person. Your daughter has been trained like a dog to "Keep Sweet" and serve the men in her family.
My daughter is in school. She's getting an education that will prepare her to follow any dreams she has for her future. Your daughter is given ONE option - get married and have babies. Case closed. You want to talk about rights? Explain to me how what you're doing isn't a violation of your daughter's rights?
My daughter has never known a a man's touch. She has never been forced to perform sexual acts with men old enough to be her grandfather. Can you say the same thing about your daughter?
While my daughter is currently chaste, she has been given information about her body. When she decides to have sex, she will be knowledgeable enough to know what's going on. Your daughter has never been told what happens during sex. From all accounts I've heard, that first encounter with their husband is often terrifying and physically painful.
My daughter has never been locked in a closet, held under a running tap, or beaten. Can you say the same?
My daughter, likely, won't have children until she's physically and mentally ready to do so. Your daughter will be encouraged to breed as soon as she bleeds. Which of those is more "decent"?
My husband and I take full responsibility for the financial, physical, emotional, and mental needs of our daughter. We're not "bleeding the beast". What is it about welfare fraud that you consider to be "decent"?
Forgive me for saying so, but I don't think Satan (if he existed) could think up the twisted, manipulative, abusive situation that has been teased out of life by the people of your faith.
No one was forced into marriage that I know
"That you know of..." being the key phrase. And, frankly, I don't believe you. There are too many who were once in your exact position that claim otherwise. If I close my eyes to a neighbor who beats their child, that doesn't mean the abuse stops because I refuse to see it. Similarly, just because you're not present at every "spiritual marriage" does not mean there's no force involved.
How can you defend children being removed since you have children yourself. As a mother I beeseech you to answer this question.
It's because I have children that I fully support the state of Texas and the rights of your children. When I imagine my own daughters being raised as chattel or "jewels in the crown of a man", I get a sick feeling in my stomach. When I think of a "leader" who would tell me to drop my boys off at the side of the road, I get angry. When I see young boys being groomed to disrespect women (including their mothers), I shake my head and wonder how anyone could defend that. Mother to mother, I'm asking you to explain, to me, how you sleep at night? Mother to mother, I want to know what you thought when they placed your child in your arms - did you immediately imagine a "spiritual marriage" or a life of excommunication? Did you automatically consider who you'd marry that sweet baby girl off to? When I had my children, each and every birth was extraordinary and daunting (at the same time). I knew those wonderful little people were completely dependent on my husband and I for protection. When did that instinct escape you? Mother to mother, I can't comprehend any justification for what you are doing and, so, I will defend the state of Texas for removing your children from potential harm.
I'm making this public because I think your lifestyle has been cloacked in secrecy for far too long. It's not sacred - it's child abuse. You can dress it up in holy underwear and hang religion on it...it's still child abuse.
