I had missed until today this detail in the pictures of the “evacuation” of children from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints ranch in Texas. Note the name on the buses:
A few thoughts.
The picture couldn’t make any clearer what is really happening there and what is really at stake. This is an attack on one Christian heresy by another, albeit more established, Christian heresy with the full force of the power of the state behind it.
Europe got past going to war over religion in 1648, but apparently the Land of the Free with its vaunted First Amendment is still struggling with it 360 years later.
Perhaps literally. Is the next thing that we can expect from the First Baptist’s and Texas Rangers an auto da fe?
