The "Yearning for Zion" defense
We now know what the defense is that is being used by the "Yearning for Zion" group. The call that triggered the raid on the site was bogus. That well may be true. But the groups says that the call was bogus, there was no child sexual abuse happening, the bed in the temple was not being used for sex. The children should be returned and the authorities should let the group go back to living their lives. The only problem is that the judge has found evidence that young girls have been made pregnant, and that young boys were being groomed to be "sexual predators" (I hate the phrase). In fact, the judge has ordered that genetic testing be done on everyone from the site to determine the relations between people. She refused the order to return the children. That is all based on what I heard on the radio news, which included station WBAP, this morning.
