A morsel of cultural self-defense. “No recognition for polygamous marriage: A-G,” from Australia’s ABC News, June 25 (thanks to all who sent this in):
The Federal Government has rejected calls from two Muslim leaders to recognise polygamous marriage.
The President of the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, Keysar Trad, says women should be allowed to enter into a polygamous marriage if they choose to.
His view is supported by Sheikh Khalil Chami from the Islamic Welfare Centre in Sydney.
The Sheikh says he is regularly asked to perform polygamous marriage ceremonies but declines.
But of course!
Attorney-General Robert McLelland says the practice is against the law.
“There is absolutely no way that the Government will be recognising polygamist relationships,” he said.
“They are unlawful and they will remain as such.”
Good. But what will the multiculti relativists say? This one bears watching.
