Bramham's Latest on Canadian Poly Trial

In writing about the Canadian poly trial, Daphne Bramham presents it as "competing rights." It isn't. It is a matter of whether people have the right to marry the consenting adults of their choice, or not.

Chief Justice Robert Bauman must decide whether having multiple, conjugal partners — as done in Bountiful — is inherently harmful to individuals.

No, it is not. But even if it were, we allow many things that have some inherent harmful. Allowing people to have the marriages that suit them best is beneficial to them.

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.
