No Legs

I get more excited every day to watch the three-ring circus coming to the little hamlet of Vancouver B.C.

Ontario just legalized decriminalized prostitution. Saskatchewan recently decriminalized polygamy (or having one civil and one common-law marriage). Homosexual marriages have been permitted for years across the nation.

I was driving home one day listening to NPR public radio. That day's show was about birds - dying birds. The guest was being interviewed about her organization and its passionate mission - a mission to save birds from death. Apparently, every year, thousands of innocent birds fly blithely into the glass windows of tall, urban skyscraper buildings (and die swiftly as a result), and this has some bird-lovers' knickers in a twist. "It's not right," they complain, "something must be done about it."

I thought perhaps I had a leak in my manifold and was hallucinating from the inhalation of exhaust fumes in my car. I think the organization wanted to ban the use of glass for windows on tall buildings. It reminded me of the people who want polygamy to stop. I think you'd make more progress trying to prohibit grass from growing.

The rather amateurish lawyers and advocates who are crying for the preservation of Canada's anti-polygamy law (S.293) have a similarly steep hill to climb. It appears they have two possible angles of attack when challenging the practice of polygamy:

1. Attack the individuals who are and have been polygamists.
2. Attack the concept of polygamy.

Let's look at the first one. I know some very bad polygamist people. I know some very bad monogamist people. I know some very bad homosexual people. I know some very bad single people. Perhaps we should ban polygamy, monogamy, homosexuality, and celibacy, then there would be no bad people anymore. Just because a polygamous guy raped his ten-year-old daughter (this is a hypothetical) last year, should we say that empirical and anecdotal data demonstrate that polygamists are child-molesters? The causal, logical relationship is not there. If that kind of pathetic, whiner logic held any water, then the moment a Catholic priest molests a young boy, the Catholic Church must be dissolved. So this argument has NO LEGS.

Now let's examine number two. Polygamy is often a deeply resented idea. Some people deeply resent the "idea" of firearms. If you cannot justifiably attack the practitioners of polygamy, maybe you will attack the concept of polygamy. "Polygamy is inherently bad" they say. "Polygamy injures infants' brains." "Polygamy weakens society." "Polygamy harms the institution of holy matrimony." Perhaps polygamy should be arrested and put in prison, along with all those rifles and handguns that have murdered innocent humans.

If you cannot arrest a gun and sentence it to prison for the killing of a victim, how then can you convict polygamy and incarcerate it? Surely we are not that stupid. I think you have to be a bleeding-heart liberal to entertain such crap-thinking in your brain. You have to seriously want to distort truth in order to seize control over other people's lives. You have to believe that you know best how to run other people's families. If the motivation has no basis in common logic, then it must spring from political socialism. This argument has NO LEGS either!

They won't be calling me (li'l ol' Renn) to testify at that Reference trial but, if they did, I would keep repeating the same simple questions:

"How will you enforce this stupid law if it gets upheld?"

"Won't you have to interrogate all the copulators in Canada?"

"What line of questioning will you adopt? - 'Are you a Fundamentalist Mormon or a mere polyamorist? Are you trying to take this hooker as a plural wife? How many different women did you penetrate this month? When you became involved with your secretary, were you hoping your wife would let her join your family? Do you live within a 35-mile radius of Bountiful, B.C.? Was this a recreational orgy or was a pastor there to officiate?'"

A corrupt people will end up with a corrupt government. It was decided no later than 1865 that the united states of America would no longer be a Christian Republic, rather it would become a secular corporation renamed the "United States of America". You cannot have it both ways, folks. If you are going to kick God out of government, then you cannot allow religious partisanship to control legislation, and the same is true in Canada. It is the people's inability to understand this simple concept that causes so much friction and chaos.

I pray that both nations will rectify at least this problem with their dying breaths.
