A "splinter"of this group is under intensive investigation.

Yet "a world tantamount to a prison camp, created by religious fanatics who, in the name of God, deprive their followers the right to make choices, force women to be totally subservient to men, and brainwash children in church-run schools" perfectly describes a not uncommon practice - among US and UK Muslims!

For many "girl children", education ends at puberty. They are taught subservience as a life skill and to cook at clean for all male relatives. They are draped in cloth bags, trained in dependence and shame and forced to marry older male cousins from Pakistan or India - all in the name of religion and cultural preservation.

Both are horrible violations of human dignity and Western law. So why are we pursuing the abusive Mormons and promoting "tolerance" for the abusive Muslims?
