Polygamy Bans Under Fire?

leave a comment »

Via Religion Clause blog:  It will be interesting to see what happens up in Canada with this recent request to the British Columbia Supreme Court for clarification on whether B.C.’s prohibition on polygamy conflicts with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.  As I’ve explained before (here, here, here, and here), the current impetus towards thwarting popular will and imposing same-sex marriage in America undermines the democratic principle that properly governs such questions.  And without the democratic principle, same-sex marriage supporters would be without any sound principle to oppose polygamy or incestuous relationships.
