Accused polygamist Winston Blackmore will cite Canada’s “gay marriage” laws as part of his defense against a charge that he has 20 wives.
Blackmore, 52, is scheduled to appear in court in Creston on Wednesday on a charge of practicing polygamy. James Oler, 44, also faces a charge of polygamy. Blackmore is accused of having 20 wives and Oler of having two. They each face a maximum of five years in prison.
There has been several investigations involving allegations of polygamy, sexual abuse and trafficking of teenage brides across the Canada-U.S. border to sister communities in the U.S.
Blackmore said in an e-mail to The Canadian Press, “It’s pretty hard to justify why “gay marriage” is OK and polygamy is not.’’
Blackmore has highlighted the deficiencies in Canada's “gay marriage” laws through this simple statement. If marriage can be extended to include couples of the same sex “gay marriage”, then why can't it also include three people of the same sex? This is a difficult question that I don't think “gay marriage” proponents can answer. If we continue this line of reasoning why not allow a gay couple to marry even if they have the same biological parents?
It was a mistake for the Canadian government to allow “gay marriage”. It has opened the door to allow all sorts of deformed definitions of marriage. Marriage is between one man and one woman. Anything else and marriage loses its status and value in society.
