Winston Blackmore found guilty of polygamy by B.C. judge

A former religious leader in B.C. has been found guilty of polygamy after marrying more than two dozen women over the course of 25 years.

Winston Blackmore was charged with practising plural or “celestial” marriage in the fundamentalist community of Bountiful, B.C.

In B.C. Supreme Court on Monday, Justice Sheri Ann Donegan said he “subscribed to beliefs and practices of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints,” a Mormon sect that believes in plural marriages.

    Good decision, and hopefully it won’t be appealed. Reason: there are a number of polygamous marriages among Muslims in Canada, and one should hope some of these would go to trial.

      Yes, but tell me, how many Islamist’s have been charged? Seems to me that there will be an appeal once the defendant brings out the inequalities on how the authorities are enforcing the laws of Canada.

  • FivePointSpurgeonist

    Sweet, now there’s precedent for the dismantling of Muslim polygamy.

    Oh, right, forgot they’re a protected class. As you were.

    The MUZZ must be a tad bit upset. .
    Canadians really don’t want to support , those Whores —On WELFARE.
    So that you can live like a Saudi Sheik.

    C’mon now ! Does anyone really think that case law and laws are applied to everyone in Canada, that laws are not distorted and discretion and feelings are not as important ? All laws are applied selectively in Canada as well as extra judicial actions by the ptbs – to heterosexual males.

      In Toronto and Calgary the Police allow muslims to commit child-abuse right in public and have NEVER call the CAS to arrest the parents or the abusers.

    As they like to say in that community:
    One wife is not enough;
    Two wives and they are always fighting over who the favourite is;

    Three wives will lead to it being two against one;

    Four is the best number; and

    With five or more you are likely to get caught for the welfare fraud you are committing.

    Fuck the Mormans !

      Are you drunk in the middle of the day again? Oh, I forgot, summer holidays when the days are hazy and time just slips or slurps away.

      • Shebel

        So-I guess all those ‘rehabilitation’ efforts have finally worked out for you.

        • Linda1000

          Nah, it’s always one step forward, two steps backwards for me.

  • Martin B

    Now he can have whole new “celestial” marriages with Bubba & Tyrone in the Big House.

    Mohummad must be upset today.

    Perhaps he can find a 5 year olde to fuck.

  • Alain

    Waiting to see this applied to the Muslims with their gaggle of wives in Canada is like waiting for Khard to be charged with treason and all his reward confiscated including whatever amount went to his scumbag lawyers.

    Next stop ‘ Little Somalia’ at Dixon rd and Kipling where we still have Welfare Alley from the early 1990’s bogus refugees landing at Pearson for the welfare and housing.

    No wonder there is a smile on his face ..

    Great. Can they now charge Mohammad Shaffia with polygamy, you know, in addition to murder?

    Mormons were quite the hell raisers starting out according to some and religious differences between them and their opponents in those days were settled in a more permanent noisy manner. This left a lot of surplus mormon widows around whose status was problematical from a practical point of view but having multiple wives solved that problem.
    Multiple wives back in the desert kingdoms were more important as a way to create alliances among different tribes through sequential first cousin intermarriages down through the generations.
