Kudos for Texas Court

I applaude the ruling yesterday by a Texas appellate court that child welfare authorities had no right to seize hundreds of children from the FLDS compound on April 3rd.  The seizure was an egregious abuse of power that never should have happened.  While there should be an investigation of the allegations of child abuse, in the meantime, the children should be returned to their parents and the group allowed to continue the practice of their faith without government interferance.  If such abuses of governmental power are allowed to go unchecked, who will be next?  Will your church, temple or synagogue be raided?  Will your family be humiliated on national television?  I certainly do not share the beliefs of the FLDS, but I do support their freedom to practice their faith.
