If you are on Twitter you might notice the hashtag “#keeplexihome.”  There’s a petition on Change.org with the following description:

There is a 6 year old little girl who is going to be ripped away from the only family that she has ever known. Her name is Lexi. The first year of her life she moved from foster placement to foster placement. Lexi has been with a loving, stable family for nearly five years and is thriving and a happy, healthy little girl. To Lexi this family is her everything – her mommy, daddy and brother and sisters. Unfortunately, since Lexi is 1.5% Choctaw, the state of California and LA County have allowed the Indian Child Welfare Law to devastate this family and will be pulling Lexi from her Mommy and Daddy on Sunday to move her to Utah to live with a non-blood related family who aren’t even members of the tribe. I’m pleading with you to please sign our petition & pass this around to everyone you know. LA County & California need to know that Lexi’s rights, stability and permanence matter!

At this very moment on Monday morning the California Supreme Court is hearing this case and I’m praying for God’s mercy upon the girl and the family.  If you are led to, please pray as well for God’s mercy with the magistrates.

The family attends Grace Community Church and even their head pastor John MacArthur has tweeted about this.

There’s a lot to the case but here in this post I want to focus on the folly of contemporary racial laws.
