Wally Offal caught the disease - I mean the "polygamy-hater's" disease. He couldn't sleep at night until he got a kilo of flesh from those filthy plyg' pedophiles in Bountiful. He prosecutor shopped. Judge Stromberg-Stein caught him red-handed. She openly and publicly ruled that Offal abused his office. Little mention was made of the months and years of financial loss, stress, torment, anguish, fear, frustration, harassment and wasted time inflicted on Winston Blackmore and his family (and on Jimmy Oler and his family, too) because Weasly Offal had to do the dirty work of Bramham and Mereska. So, today, we learned the following:
Polygamist leader suing B.C. governmentWinston Blackmore says rights were violated
I applaud Winston for his courage and indignation. The Canadian legal machinery made a huge gaffe and has been found guilty (not unlike Texas). I pray that Winston will be able to recoup every penny that this orchestrated assault on him has cost.
You see, folks, mercy cannot rob justice. Many would say that it is Winston who should be disciplined - not the B.C. government. However, I expect that few of them can unequivocally state what specific harm Winston has done to them - so let him who is without spot cast the "first stone". I don't believe in abortion, but would it be right for me to form a crusading pro-life organization to stamp out or punish those individuals who commit abortions?
If the B.C. government targets and victimizes a religious minority for political or purely sanctimonious purposes, it will inevitably face retribution (remember Governor Howard Pyle of Arizona). Thank you, Winston, for standing up to their abuse.
Perhaps Jimmy will add his voice to the complaint. Stay tuned, America - those divine balancing forces are inexorable.
