Abstract:     
This Article's primary thesis is that male and female children alike are victims of child abuse and neglect in the name of FLDS religious doctrine. While others have addressed "terror in the name of God" (attacking internal and external targets alike) child endangerment in the religion paradigm is, I suggest, fundamentally different. Simply put, it is the deliberate injury to one's own child predicated on religious faith, in particular religious extremism. To that end, this Article will focus on the danger to members of an internal community (members of a particular faith) rather than to an external community (members of other faiths).
