Teens Defend Polygamy at Utah Rally

I subscribe to Maggie Gallagher's Marriage News (don't ask why)

This week, they have an article with a wonderful title: Teens Defend Polygamy at Utah Rally

"Because of our beliefs, many of our people have been incarcerated and had their basic human rights stripped of them, namely life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," said a 19-year-old identified only as Tyler. "I didn't come here today to ask for your permission to live my beliefs. I shouldn't have to."

I think Tyler has a point. It is possible that polygamy indicates some sort of emotional problems with the people involved. But the more the "normal society" harasses such people, the less we'll know about both dangers and benefits of polygamy, and the harder it'll be to distinguish between abusive polygamists and those who harm no one.

They said they spoke voluntarily. They gave only their first names, saying they were protecting the privacy of their parents.

They shouldn't have to.
