I found this blog with its attendant argument for legalizing polygamy. It is written from the perspective of a black male born in Nigeria and familiar with African tradition and also Muslim beliefs. Apparently he has researched Mormonism as well and has some interesting insights and arguments for legalization.

I find it interesting that opinions on conjugal socialization are fast evolving toward a more liberal stance. Freedom of choice regarding consenting adult relationships is the new trend in our modern world.

In light of our work with the Safety Net organization and our interaction with various social workers and law enforcement (so called) personnel, I thought the attached entry from the Escape to Polygamy Blog by J. R. North would have some interest in a satirical vein.

The URL link (true story) referenced in the piece, is the basis for the satire on the abuse suffered from a “monogamous” society. When the mind set of people begins to finally realize that a lifestyle choice doesn’t commit abuse, or a crime and that people do, we may begin to see more tolerance for lifestyle choice.

I thought it might be of interest to link the esteemed Professor Jonathan Turley’s Affidavit filing in the Canadian Reference Case. To call it simply a brilliant display of understanding Constitutional Law, would be an understatement indeed. In our view, Turley obliterates Marci Hamilton’s arguments, which are simply a replay of her worn out dissertations on Findlaw and other legal blogs.

We are most fortunate to have the best of the best regarding Constitutional Law working for our civil rights…

Our community recently had the wonderful and joyful pleasure of having Maya Stein visit and share her amazing poetic talent with us. She shared the experience on her blog and it seemed appropriate to repost here as well:

I have so much to say about the past two days, and yet I can’t possibly contain it all here, in the span of a blog post. It feels like the world has shifted, and it’s beyond election results and the World Series and October segueing into November. It’s something about world view and peace-making and surrender. It’s about being aligned with the desert and safeguarded by mountains. It’s about self-care and self-love. And it’s about the grandeur of kindness.

If you have three men and three women living together in a commune somewhere out west.  It is considered consenting adult free love and no one (especially in California) cares.
