The AP is a bunch of wimps

Yearning for Zion Ranch case gears up

Attorneys on Monday will begin culling the largest jury pool ever called in Eldorado to try to find 14 people in a county of 2,800 who can set aside what they’ve heard about a polygamist sect whose alleged marriages involving underage girls triggered a police raid last year that swept more than 400 children into state custody.

At least that’s the charitable explanation. A middle-aged or older man “marrying” an underaged girl is known in most parts of the country as “rape”, either statutory, forcible or both. The part where someone has a religious ceremony first is mostly irrelevant, and would be completely irrelevant if not for the size of the cult involved.

So using “underaged marriage” throughout the article shows that someone has bought a huge pile of spin.
