VANCOUVER–For the third time in a year, the B.C. government has asked for outside expert legal opinion on whether polygamists who have thrived for decades in the province's interior can be criminally prosecuted.
B.C.'s Attorney General Wally Oppal said he disagrees with two previous legal opinions by other special prosecutors appointed by the government that charges would be unfair and likely fail.
It would be interesting to see the result of such a case being taken to the Supreme Court. I would think the law against polygamy might just be struck down. What, after all, is the difference between someone with a homosexual orientation indulging his orientation and someone with a polyamorous orientation indulging his. Or, for that matter, a member of NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Association)?
The finger has been pulled out of the dyke. It's only a matter of time before people of every sexual persuasion demand their rights to equality under the law.
