The polygamist protectors and apologists
On the way home yesterday, on KRLD radio, I heard part of an interview with a lawyer who is on the polygamists defense team. She said that fears that the polygamists would flee Texas if they get their children back are unfounded. I don't believe it. The Dallas Morning News has more on the story. The polygamists have functioned in their enclave ("Yearning for Zion") for this long because of their apologists and protectors. It is unclear who all their protectors are, but they have them. Otherwise, they would have been shut down long ago. Leftists who are interested in bringing down the more conventional institution of marriage are at least apologists. Polygamy is somehow tied up with Gay Rights and Gay Marriage.
