Did the ninja costumes have puffy sleeves?

It sounds like an episode from Big Love.

Have you read this?

Under the Banner of Heaven

It takes all the humor out of it. I couldn’t read it all at once. Systematic abuse of both girls and boys, but mostly girls. Men and women are also victimized.

I am actually quite aware of the problems out there caused by polygamy. I am also still going WTF over this case.

And rwnj keep insisting that marriage equality means that incestuous and polygamous marriages have to be legalized as well.

Cases such as this one have nothing to do with whether or not there should be polygamous marriages. No more than cases of gay marriage gone bad should be used against gay marriage.

The reason why legalization of SSM does not imply automatic legalization of polygamy is simple: there is no legal framework for polygamy, while the legal framework for SSM is the same as for straight marriage. Legalizing SSM is done by simply allowing it, while legalizing polygamy would imply drafting thousands upon thousands of pages of new laws regulating all aspects of this new arrangement (all the property relations, children rights, inheritance laws, defense against abuse etc.). Which is why it won’t be happening. Not because polygamists are inherently bad apples.

That was an excellent read.
