Local story has more detail on FLDS raid in Texas

This story from the local San Angelo paper offers multiple details about the FLDS compound in west Texas that authorities raided, taking children.

At particular issue is a search warrant served after the children were removed, which involved a search of the group's temple, an act that the FLDS attorney stated violates the religious rights of the group. Law enforcement involved with the search noted mutiple beds in the temple, one of which looked like it had been slept in recently.

In another religion angle to this story, this story from the Associated Baptist Press mentions that the state has asked Baptist Family and Child Services for assistance including providing food for the displaced from a mobile kitchen that Texas Baptist Men run for disaster relief.
