British Columbia CLA Stands For Freedom to Marry

Here’s some good news out of Vancouver in the Canadian poly trial.

A B.C. civil rights group is siding with a controversial religious sect in a landmark court case examining Canada’s ban on polygamy.

In final arguments filed with the court, the B.C. Civil Liberties Association says the law against multiple marriage is outdated and should be relegated to the scrap heap of history because barring polygamous relationships violates fundamental freedoms protected in the Canadian charter.

Thank you!

The association says it, too, is concerned about allegations of child abuse and sexual interference within polygamous communities, but it argues that criminal activity should be investigated and prosecuted whether it occurs in polygamous or monogamous relationships.

Exactly! Good for the BCCLA. Prosecute ABUSERS. Let adults marry any consenting adults.

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.
