[Vision2020] Burn Down the FLDS Church

You're misinterpreting our defense of the rule of law and the potential 
innocence of the accused as support for these people or as some kind of 
statement that they were known to be innocent.

"Take them away because they might have been abused" doesn't cut it.  
Coming in and removing all the children was heavy-handed and trampled on 
these people's rights (in my opinion).  That doesn't mean that I think 
some of them might not be guilty.

I'm sure I'm not going to make new friends bringing this up,  but what 
the heck.  I think it needs to be said.  While 14 is too young, why the 
huge moral outrage over marriage to or impregnating of a young woman 
that is 17 years old, assuming it was consensual, of course?  You have 
to draw the line somewhere, but on the day before their 18th birthday 
they are verboten on penalty of having your whole world destroyed, and 
on the next day they are fair game?  I'm not advocating having sex with 
17 year olds, but I think we as a country need to draw a line between 
young adult and actual child in our outrage in these incidents.  People 
treat a 20 year old having sex with a 17 year old as if he or she had 
had sex with a 6 year old.  There is a huge difference in severity, 
wouldn't you say?  Ephebophilia and pedophilia are different things.  
Both are against the law, and it's up to your individual morals to 
determine where the lines should be drawn, but they should (in my 
opinion) be dealt with with different sentences.
