These children taken from their homes nearly one month ago are now being sent to foster homes all across the state of Texas. My heart breaks for the children and their parents who are now being separated possibly indefinitely. On the FLDS website they have a link to the UN’s definition of genocide.
In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
- (a) Killing members of the group;
- (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
- (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
- (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
- (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
I sure as hell hope they get some top notch lawyers and heads roll over this travesty.
