I see the court decided to uphold the ban, basing it on the responsibility of protecting women and children, versus religious freedom.
"This case is essentially about harm. ... This includes harm to women, to children, to society and to the institution of monogamous marriage," wrote Bauman.
" Polygamy's harm to society includes the critical fact that a great many of its individual harms are not specific to any particular religious, cultural or regional context. They can be generalized and expected to occur wherever polygamy exists." - Justice Robert Bauman.
That`s a pretty damaging statement.
