Online petitions regarding the Texas raid on the FLDS compound near Eldorado reveal some interesting things about Americans. An online petition that supported the actions of the Department of Family and Protective Services workers netted about 265 names by the first of June. An online petition condemning the actions and encouraging the return of the children to their mothers netted ten times as many names. If these statistics truly represent reality, it seems that the vast majority of Americans support the integrity of family, even if there's a possibility that the children may be at risk. Which of these petitions would you have signed, and why?
