YFZ Ranch

YFZ RanchAs the one-year anniversary of the state raid on the YFZ Ranch approaches, today’s Oprah Winfrey Show will focus on the West Texas polygamist community.

“Texas state officials say the ranch was a place where child abuse was rampant and young girls were forced into polygamist marriages,” Winfrey says on her Web site. “The people who live here say, while yes, they do believe in plural marriages, they say the are not forced to marry anyone.”

In Austin, Oprah’s show is on KVUE at 4 p.m.

Texas officials removed more than 400 children from the ranch; all but one have been returned to their families.
