Bramham: Why wasn’t Winston Blackmore charged with child exploitation?
I’m guessing these charges will come later? But, given the snail’s pace the gov’t has taken to get this far, who knows? NM Daphne Bramham: Two child brides gave birth at 16. So why wasn’t Blackmore charged with sexual exploitation? National Post DAPHNE BRAMHAM, POSTMEDIA NEWS | April 25, 2017 CRANBROOK, B.C. – It doesn’t matter that both Winston Blackmore and James Oler had child brides because that’s not what they’re on trial for. What matters for a conviction in this trial where each man is charged with a single count of polygamy is that the prosecutor proves that they...
Will Jane Blackmore put the real truth about the age of WB’s under-aged wives before the court?
Winston Blackmore denied to police that he married a 15-year-old, court hears Vancouver Sun DAPHNE BRAMHAM April 24, 2017 CRANBROOK — Winston Blackmore was front and centre Monday at a trial where he stands accused of one count of polygamy along with co-defendant James Oler. Both men are former bishops in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Blackmore wasn’t testifying. But in his videotaped interview with RCMP in 2009, which was played, Blackmore didn’t deny that he has had 24 wives. “If I’m guilty of something it’s being Mormon,” he told Sergeant Terry Jacklin. “In our...
bramham: b.c. polygamy trial does not include a challenge to the law’s validity
B.C. polygamy trial does not include a challenge to the law’s validity Vancouver Sun DAPHNE BRAMHAM April 20, 2017 CRANBROOK, B.C. – The polygamy trial of two Mormon fundamentalist leaders is unusual. But the issues and evidence raised have nothing to do with whether the centuries’ old law is valid. The trial could have been that had either Winston Blackmore or James Oler given notice, that they would be asserting their right to freely practice their religion. In Canada, that’s what’s required. It’s not something that a defence lawyer can just casually drop in after the prosecution’s case has been...

POLYGAMY TRIAL BEGINS TODAY
The top five news stories listed on CBC to watch today had the polygamy trial as second. The details of this high profile trial will be broadcast around the world. It is 29 years since Debbie Palmer first stepped out into the public and talked about her experiences in Bountiful; but, only one year since a brave Olympic Canadian cyclist woman–Clara Hughes–brought attention to the mental health issue of depression. The stigma attached to the women of polygamy who have escaped who also have to deal with their own personal issues of literally finding self and finding footing for themselves...
First Polygamy Trial to begin in Canada Tuesday, April 18th, in Cranbrook, B.C.
Daphne Bramham: Canadian polygamy law on trial for the first time in 127 years Vancouver Sun DAPHNE BRAMHAM April 16, 2017 It’s almost certainly going to come down to a battle over religious freedom when Canada’s 127-year-old polygamy law is tried for the first time in Canadian history. Canada’s best-known polygamist, Winston Kaye Blackmore, and his former brother-in-law, James Marion Oler, will face one count each of polygamy when the trial begins Tuesday in B.C. Supreme Court in Cranbrook. There are 24 women listed on Blackmore’s indictment who are alleged to have been married in a religious ceremony or had...
Mormon General Conference Speakers Call for more baptisms of the dead
Twice a year, the upper-ups of the Mormon church, those who are paid six-figure salaries plus given homes and vehicles and all living expenses out of the tithing offerings of the minions who sacrifice “all they have for the upbuilding of the church” (I know it isn’t a word but that is what is sworn in the temple), get up to the podium and tell those same minions how they should be living. I wonder when someone is going to have the courage to stand up and say, “The Book of Mormon is a fairy tale. It is one man’s...
Utah Polygamy Bill signed into law
Herbert signs polygamy bill into Utah law By NATE CARLISLE | The Salt Lake Tribune Mar 28 2017 Law » Felony status continues; penalties increased for fraud convictions. Gov. Gary Herbert on Tuesday signed a bill that keeps polygamy a felony in Utah and increases the penalties for polygamists convicted of committing frauds and abuses. Herbert’s approval of HB99 affirms the position Utah has held since statehood — that polygamy is against the law. Yet it’s unclear how much of the bill will ever be used. Polygamists and some sympathetic attorneys have said HB99 will be unconstitutional if it’s applied...
Can polygamy ever work?
It is so very easy for someone outside this situation to say, “Why not just get out of it?” But, the reality is these women are thoroughly brainwashed into believing the are living “God’s plan” and must “endure to the end.” The situation is so very sickening, so very other-worldly, so very malignant to the brain! If the first year was hell as admitted by Marina Morrison, does it not follow that all her other years in polygamy are hell, too? NM Can polygamy ever work? Inside Utah’s fundamentalist Mormon community where multiple marriages are a way of life •...
