Canadian Judge Allows Testimony in Polygamy Case

I'm surprised, but happy to see this update.

A judge has ordered a publication ban on the identities of polygamists who may testify at a hearing to determine the constitutionality of Canada's laws on multiple marriages.

B.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Bauman found it was necessary to impose the order to allow the case to proceed with a "complete record and full argument on all sides."

This makes it more likely to have polygamy-friendly testimony on the record, and more likely this freedom to marry will be granted. Step by step, we can reach full marriage equality. Thank you, Justice Bauman.

I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at protonmail dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.
