There are signs it may be beginning to crumble, though. The Mormons are too entrenched and rich to go away anytime soon. The Mormon religion is clearly insane, they ban coffee drinking FFS!

It seems that unless there is physical abuse, that can be proved, there's not much the government can do about this sort of thing. I've seen a lot of ex scientologists talking about similar kinds family separations and restrictions being imposed.
