Utah Polygamists Want Their Day in Court

Reality show stars to mount a legal challenge to Utah's bigamy laws. Hotshot attorney Jonathan Turley will represent Kody Brown and his four 'wives' - Robyn, Meri, Janelle, and Christine.

Statement from Lawyuh Turley: "We are not demanding the recognition of polygamous marriage. We are only challenging the right of the state to prosecute people for their private relations and demanding equal treatment with other citizens in living their lives according to their own beliefs. This action seeks to protect one of the defining principles of this country, what Justice Louis Brandeis called ‘the right to be left alone.’ In that sense, it is a challenge designed to benefit not just polygamists but all citizens who wish to live their lives according to their own values – even if those values run counter to those of the majority in the state."

TCC Note: A few months ago I watched a couple of episodes of Sister Wives. Compared to the materialistic excess and narcissism of the Kardashians, the Brown's lifestyle came across as pretty mundane with conversations centering around children, pregnancy, faith, household protocol and chores, etc. But they are just as intellectually bubbleheaded as the K's. Estrogen-dominated households in both cases. That should tell you something.

Any one who wants more than one spouse has to be insane. Best to leave them alone.

What is ironic is that if Kody just wanted to shack up with these women, the State could care less.

Then, again, there'd also be no reality show.
