Let me start off by saying I in no way condone having more than one wife or impregnating 14 year old girls. This behavior is simply not expectable.
That being said I don't know if any of the young girls rescued from their Mormon temple in West texas last week should necessarily be chalked up as a 'save' just yet.
Evidentially this temple in El Dorado was one of the most sought after by their believers, and only the most righteous were allowed to reside within its walls. Many of these children were taught scriptures from morning until night and constantly warned against the hedonism existing just outside their pious community.
So, my question is, will we prove them wrong?
If you live anywhere except under a rock I'm sure you know the answer looks grim. Yes, we do have laws that prevent old perverts from sexualizing young girls...how well they are enforced though is anyone's guess.
In the state of Texas, teens under the age of 16 legally cannot have sexual intercourse, under the age of 18 legally cannot have an abortion without parental consent, and under the age of 18 legally cannot be spread eagle on the hood of a Camaro in playboy magazine. So technically, yes, we certainly have saved these precious young women....at least for now. They have a good 4 years to be completely re-brainwashed and indoctrinated into the ways of our world; their savior. Lucky them.
