    If they broke the law by sexually assaulting minors - hope they spend a very, very long time in prison with Bubba...who will hopefully show them the same courtesy as they showed the kids.

    I do not see the link between polygamy and sexual assault on a minor.

    To quote the article, "A polygamist sect leader defending himself against sexual assault charges broke his silence Friday with a 55-minute sermon defending plural marriages as divine...," it seems to me that whether the accused is a polygamist is irrelevant. His was charged with sexual assault on two under-aged girls.

    Assuming polygamy had been legalized in that particular State, it would still be an offence to have sex with under-aged girls unless that particular State had also legalized under-aged sex.

    The religious ranting of the accused does not seem to be relevant to the charges faced by the accused.

    Theoretically, assuming polygamy had been legalised - but not sex with minors - the accused could marry the under-aged girls and NOT consummate the marriage until the girls are of age.

    You hit the nail on the head. His rantings have nothing whatsoever to do with the alleged crime of sex with underage girls, period.

    That is correct. It is giving polygamy a terrible reputation.

    He is just a pedophile who needs to be locked up.

    Everyone here understands that polygamy has been illegal everywhere in the USA since the 1890s, and before that it was illegal everywhere but Utah, right???
