Impeach Texas Judge Barbara Walther

I don’t hide the fact that I view Mormons as just another myth – a cult, in fact, that twists and perverts the answer to Jesus Christ’s question, “Who do you say that I am?”

However, America’s Founding Fathers guaranteed its citizens (legal citizens, not crimaliens) the right to exercise their freedom of religion in this country – NOT just Muslims getting special foot bath treatment at Minnesota Colleges.

America is the only country in the world where the RIGHT to religious freedom is written into the structure and foundation of a country’s governing laws. When it comes down to American freedoms and preserving the Constitution of the United States, I’ll stand alongside FLDS members (rejected polygamist black-sheep of the Mormon Church), fighting for their right to carry out the practices of their religion as they see fit as long as they are within the bounds of REAL law AND, unlike the Muslim foot-baths, don’t require use of my taxpayer money.

When the government’s agents, Texas child protective services, swooped down, removing over 400 FLDS Texan children, citizens of the United States of America, disrupting their community, families and way of life, we all received a wake-up call. What is to prevent the same thing from happening to everyone’s neighborhoods, churches or private schools?

Vox Day, a Christian libertarianm had this to say in a WND exclusive commentary

Contrary to what a disturbing percentage of the voting population appears to believe, ‘protecting the children’ is not a legitimate function of government.

The concept appears nowhere in any constitution, and the very idea that the most lethal institution in human history, an institution that has killed more children than any other, can even be used to protect children is inherently oxymoronic.

“Consider this absurd justification for the mass kidnappings offered by Angie Voss, the CPS kidnapper in chief, offered as an explanation for the mysterious preference of the abused women to remain with their supposed abusers instead of availing themselves of government shelters: ‘This population of women has a difficult time making decisions on their own.’ If a distaste for decision-making is legitimate grounds for removing children from their mothers, then there won’t be a woman in America left with a child to call her own!

“For what man has not had a conversation that went like this:

‘Where do you want to eat?’

‘I don’t care. … You decide.’

‘OK, let’s go to that new Chinese place.’

‘No, I don’t want Chinese!’

‘Well, what do you want, then?’

‘I don’t know, whatever you want.’

Sound the sirens, send in Ms. Voss and her Sturmtruppen, and seize those at-risk kids!

The state does not own the children whose families happen to reside within its boundaries and it does not possess the right to dictate what is and what is not a proper way for a family to raise its children.

The disingenuous bigotry of CPS’ action is perhaps best revealed by comparing the pregnancy rates of the supposedly abused teenage girls at the FLDS compound with the rest of the teenage Texan population. Voss stated that five of the 416 children were pregnant or had given birth; assuming that half of the 416 are female, that is a pregnancy rate of 24 per 1,000. The Texas pregnancy rate among women 15 to 19 is 101 per 1,000. It’s also worth noting that the “numerous” pregnant 13-year-olds hypothesized by one government worker mysteriously transformed into five “under 18s” when Voss testified.

If the family lives of hundreds of American citizens living peacefully can be brutally invaded and destroyed on the basis of a single anonymous phone call that, as WND has reported, increasingly looks to have been a fraud, then every American family is at risk.

How you raise your children is between you and God alone. It is not a matter for the state or anyone else; it never has been. As this mass kidnapping of FLDS children and incredible violation of due process will almost surely demonstrate over time, government is a ruthless and power-maddened institution that is the very last one capable of serving the interests of the children. No conservative and no religious individual should support this outrageous action, even if adult members of the FLDS community are found to have violated Texas law as well as Texas social norms, because to accept this terrible precedent is to guarantee that future violations of family rights will be committed.

And as history has shown, the next time it may not be some weird and heretical Mormons in the government’s gun sights, but Jews, homeschoolers or evangelical Christians” – Vox Commentary, WND

America is no longer functioning as a Republic, but instead, a land of multiple dictators called “judges”. It is time for the peasants to gather their pitchforks…….well, okay, maybe signing a petition would be a better way to start…..and let’s see if we can’t urge our ELECTED officials to return our country back to where it belongs – into the hands of the people.

Texas Judge Barbara Walther authorized the removal of more than 400 children from an FLDS compound in Texas and their placement in foster care.

Both an appellate court and the Texas Supreme Court have ruled that the children and parents must be reunified. Even now Judge Walther is blocking the reunification by attempting to get parents to sign agreements with Child Protective Services before they can be reunited with their children.

Barbara Walther’s actions constitute one of the greatest violation of constitutional rights in the State of Texas and she should be impeached and removed from office. This petition will be forwarded to Texas lawmakers after enough signatures are collected.

Signing this petition does not mean that you necessarily support the FLDS and their religious views.

Petition:
Whereas Texas 51st District Judge Barbara Walther has violated the constitutional rights of more than 400 children and their parents of the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints Church (FLDS);

and whereas Judge Barbara Walther took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Texas and has violated that oath;

and whereas both an appellate court and the Texas Supreme Court have sided with the FLDS children and their parents against Judge Barbara Walther;

and whereas the actions of Judge Barbara Walther have resulted in a great financial cost to the State of Texas and its taxpayers;

and whereas Judge Barbara Walther’s actions constitute one of the greatest violations of constitutional rights in the history of the State of Texas;

and whereas Judge Barbara Walther should have known ahead of time that what she was doing was unconstitutional, since the Island Pond Raid in the State of Vermont in 1984 was almost identical, and there are other similar cases on record where judges refused to support unconstitutional raids by Child Protective Services;

and whereas Judge Barbara Walther has impeded the reunification of parents with their children, even after the Texas Supreme Court ruled that they should be reunified;

we ask that proceedings begin immediately for the impeachment of District Judge Barbara Walther of the State of Texas.
