Once again the issue of polygamy is back on the television news, as the BC Supreme Court prepares to make a ruling on the matter. I really hope that they don't screw this up, because I don't see this as something supported by the majority. That gets us to today's poll question; should people be allowed to marry more than one spouse? I vote no.
While the social libertarian in me would vote to legalize prostitution and marijuana, I draw the line at polygamy. It isn't on moral grounds per say, but that if you allow a small number of men to collect a large number of wives, then you are skewing the ratio of single men to single women. If our court says it is okay and people in the big cities can start pairing up with multiple spouses instead of just isolated communities, you are opening a Pandora's Box.
