Why Not Polygamy?

No practice that results in such ill effects should be a “right” under the US Constitution.

“The harms flowing from polygamy are too evident to ignore and too serious to allow to occur under the guise of fundamental rights.” (Lawyer, Thomas Buck.)

“Good” polygamy versus “bad” polygamy? Canada’s ruling on polygamy found that “The harms associated with the practice are endemic; they are inherent.” This means that the harms of polygamy are not just the result of abusive individuals. Social, physical, or emotional harms are inevitable where polygamy exists. Keep reading →

Kristyn Decker commented on Winston Blackmore’s warm welcome as a guest speaker at the recent Sun Stone in Utah and on the trial here in Creston. (Only one, easily missed media item has been published about the trial here in British Columbia):

Our SCC team and supporters were quite disappointed when Winston and other polygamists got the “Royal” treatment before, at and after Sun Stone. The pro polygamy speakers were the only ones who made the news – nothing new about that. Nothing. The media seems biased when it comes to pro or anti polygamy out-cries. The polygamists get .80 coverage to our .20.

The Supreme Court is considering taking on the Brown’s case. Utah has until next November to counter their plea. The only good thing about that would be if the outcome was the same as the Canadian Court Ref. Case. However, the way it looks now, the world might as well start announcing that if there are any polygamists and law-breakers, they can all move to Utah where they’ll be given free reign, and be supported by our tax dollars.

Three Bountiful Members Now In Cranbrook Court, in BC

Bill Piket of Campaign Against Bountiful Abuse posted this today:

Dear friends,

The CBC reports that three members of the FLDS are now before a judge charged with transporting a girl across the Canada USA border to hand her over to an older man in the USA. The case is on in a Cranbrook court.

Nice to know that at long last things are happening. Daphne Bramham is in Cranbrook to cover the story.

No information yet on when the case against Winston Blackmore himself will go to trial.

I am getting a ton of interest on this story on my facebook page.
