Breaking: Freedom to Marry Denied in Canada

The B.C Supreme Court has upheld the country’s law banning polygamy. B.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Bauman decided Wednesday that Canada's polygamy law is constitutional but flawed.

Outrageous. How can consenting adults be denied the right to marry? Canada has been making progress; the same-sex freedom to marry is recognized. But it needs to move to full marriage equality so that an adult is free to share marriage with any consenting adults.

This decision must be appealed.

There will be more coverage later, of course.

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.
