The FLDS Temple in Eldorado, Texas.

Salt Lake City, UT – In 1953, authorities arrested some 400 Mormon fundamentalists - including 236 children - in what was called "the largest mass arrest of men and women in modern American history." Fast forward to this month - when more than 400 children from the FLDS community in Texas were taken into state custody. Tuesday, we'll talk about the recent raid and how it compares to earlier actions. At the heart of the matter remains an essential question: Is this life style a matter of religious liberty or a form of slavery for women?
