May 5,2008

Last April was National Child Abuse Awareness Month, and for our instruction the government ruling us has committed several recent high-profile acts of official child abuse.

More than 400 children, including nursing infants, were taken from mothers belonging to the FLDS Church in Texas. That small, eccentric religious community was attacked in a paramilitary raid triggered by anonymous ? and now discredited ? allegations of sexual abuse.

Despite the absence of a victim or an accuser, the children were taken from their mothers at gunpoint.

A smaller but still shocking example of government child abuse was the seizure of seven-year-old Leo Ratte from his father Christopher Ratte.

During a baseball game, Mr. Ratte bought his son Leo a beverage he thought was lemonade, but that actually contained alcohol. This was an innocent mistake, a fact acknowledged by police and child protection workers. Yet the terrified boy was forcibly taken from his parents and kept from them for two days.

We must never forget that government is the single greatest source of preventable child abuse.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
