Big Love, Big Freedom

Nice to see from the usually "moderate" Ann Althouse: Polygamists reframe their struggle as a matter of freedom of individual choice.

As both a libertarian and someone who has been enjoying HBO's "Big Love" as of late, this is welcome news. Imagine a day when inter-racial couples, polygamist couples, and gay couples can live together, in harmony.

Also- Prof. Althouse makes a good point- polygamists are persecuted in ways gay couples are not- gay people are only being denied a right to legalize their relationship, whereas polygamists could potentially face jail time for their multiple marriages.
