Anitequality in Canada

The Edmonton Journal printed a letter back in October from anti-equality Nancy Mereska, who wants to deny poly people the freedom to marry.

Polygamy fosters tribalism.

This is an assertion with no basis in fact. Modern polygamy can actually speed the intregration of society. Even in ancient times, it was a way that royalty fostered ties between countries.

It creates bands of rogue young men who, denied of a wife, form angry gangs of ill repute, gangs that feed on the thoughts of war, not peace.

If a man is likely to be the type of person who would join such a gang and do such things, no wonder a woman or another man wouldn’t choose to marry him. People should be free to choose their spouses, even if that spouse will have another spouse. And a good spouse you share is better than one to yourself who is prone to criminality.

Tribalism leads to anarchy. Anarchy destroys a democratic society.

Where has polygamy ever led to anarchy? "it will lead to theocracy!" "It will lead to anarcy!" Make up your closed, narrow minds - which is it?

Just admit that you’re prejudiced and you want to impose your beliefs on others.

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. 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.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE. If your comment includes graphic descriptions of activity involving minors, it's not going to get published.
