The More the Merrier?

August 25, 2010

I don’t want to say, “I told you so. . .but!” Recently at a national convention, a committee of the Green Party of Canada, voted to send a motion to the full party for it to be debated and voted on. The motion will call for the decriminalization of . . . you waiting for it? Polygamy!
The motion has been brought forward by Trey Capnerhurst, a polyamorous (a person having more than one intimate relationship at one time. There used to be another name for that) Green Party candidate in Edmonton East.
Capnerhurst insists, “It’s a human rights issue”. And of course she is right. If the right to marry someone of the same sex is a human rights issue, how can the right to marry many people of either sex not be a human rights issue? The question though shouldn’t be; is it a matter of human rights? The question should be; is it right? Society has already gone down the road of ignoring what is right and what is wrong, and that happened long before the same sex marriage issue came up, but that doesn’t mean the church has to follow. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.

    I'll be waiting for the bill moving for the legalization of marriage concerning one man and one goat! The spin alone should cause some of our 'best and brightest s' heads to explode! Now that's entertainment!

    The motion was sponsored was a group of students from York. I was one of those who spoke at the workshop and to the press. If you are actually interested in the facts, I wrote about what I saw happen here:
