Refusal to Cooperate

Posted in:

Refusal to Cooperate


Somewhere in my mind, the definitions of "stubborn" and "fundamentalist" have merged.  I watch the news and notice that even after losing their children for two months in the YFZ raid, some mothers are more committed to being stubborn than they are to keeping their children.  Two women married to Merrill Jessop may lose their children to foster homes if they don't cooperate with the court by signing an agreement to keep their children out of harm's way.  The "harm" consists of the children's exposure to men who may force them into an early marriage-in other words, underage sexual assault. It seems these women care more about supporting men who think it's ok to abuse young girls in the name of religion than they do about the well being of their own children. Such blind loyalty and stubborn steadfastness can't be seen as devotion. Can it?
