Men found guilty of polygamy

Two Canadian religious leaders have been found guilty of practising polygamy by the Supreme Court of British Columbia (BC).
The trial heard Winston Blackmore, 61, married 24 women. His former brother-in-law James Oler, 53, married five.
They were both charged with one count of polygamy. Each face up to five years in prison.
The landmark ruling is considered a test of the boundaries of religious freedom in Canada.

This is stupid. Consenting

This is stupid. Consenting adults should be permitted to marry as many times as they wish. If the tax laws need to be changed, that is a different issue for the government.
