Okay, enough is enough. I’m all for protecting someone’s civil rights. I’m a flag waving, Bill of Rights supporting, Bible believing, kinda girl. I don’t care what color you are, what religion you practice, or what planet you come from, as long as you are a decent, hard working person that's good enough for me. But enough is enough!

Of the girls taken from the polygamist compound in Texas 31 out of 53 girls, age 14 and 17, have been or are pregnant. Read it for yourself here MSNBC.COM

Thirty-one girls. That's just so incredible that it staggers the mind. Gahh!

Then there's that sicko in Austria who held his daughter captive for 24 years (24 YEARS!) molesting her, abusing her AND the children he fathered with her for years. Read it here http://www.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/europe/04/29/austria.cellar/index.html

I think I better stop reading the news. It's just tickin' me off.

The thing in Austria is all over the news here in Europe. It is horrific beyond description. And so is the sexual abuses going on in the name of religion.

Some days I wish I could turn off the world, too.

When I hear the word compound I immediately think of Cult. I didn't know anything about the Austria debacle . . since I don't read the news!

I wish some days the world could be a channel and you could change it to something else!

AHAH! So the polygamists have been getting away with their polygamy by saying that they aren't legally married. BUT to include underage kids in unlegal sex finally gets them.

Those poor girls. I can't even imagine what their world has been like.

I can't even make myself read the Austria one. Just on your description it is too horrifying to think about. I think that murder would be better than what he has done to his "family".
