Once again I’m disappointed on a ruling seemingly for liberty. A federal judge in Utah ruled two days ago that Utah’s law prohibiting polygamous cohabitation to be unconstitutional. That a federal judge would interfere with a local law is troubling. It’s a display of power by a bigger state over a smaller one. Local laws against polygamous cohabition are unjust, as all statist laws are, but a federal judge’s interference is likewise unjust. I am glad that those engaged in polygamous cohabitation will no longer be hunted down by the individuals calling themselves the State of Utah, but I think the price paid is too high, a price that will be borne by everyone, not just those engaged in polygamous cohabitation. And that’s today’s two cents.
