Who's your fundie daddy?

It's hard to tell, according to news reports of the government raids on a Mormon splinter group in Texas at the "Yearning For Zion" ranch, where DNA testing may be required to sort out who's who.

The raids came after a 16-year-old girl called a family violence center from the ranch to report sexual assault, beatings, and being forced to become the seventh wife of a man more than three times her age.

The girl has an eight-month-old child and another on the way.

Since then authorities have removed hundreds of children and described practices at the Mormon sex farm whereby teenagers were groomed for and arranged to have intercourse with one another.

The girl said she was warned by churchers that if she left the ranch, she'd be coerced by "outsiders" to have sex with lots of men.

Some choice.

"Raw anti-fundamentalist-Mormon bigotry!"
Or, just simply, commonsense!

Oddly, the right is awfully silent about this. Could it be their Christian values? Or what if Romney would be chosen as McCain's running mate? Wouldn't that be delicious.

I would have thought that the money-worshipers would have at least bemoaned how much it's going to cost taxpayers to house hundreds of women, and the cost of all the court proceedings for the children.
