I came across this interesting article about a recent distinguished Law Professors appointment to the Library of Congress. The significant thing that caught my eye is that this professor, John Witte, Jr is committed it seems to finding ways to continue to protect anti-polgyamy laws. The legal establishment knows the tide is rising and that families like ours will continue to push public awareness of the injustice of the status quo.
From Emory University, Witte, has been named to the Maguire Chair in Ethics and American History at the John W. Kluge Center of the Library of Congress. He was appointed by Librarian of Congress James H. Billington, and Witte is serving during the summer and fall of 2012. It seems that Witte thinks the constitutionality of the West’s traditional criminal prohibitions on polygamy to be “one of the hard questions just over the horizon of American family law.”
I found it interesting not that there is such a focus to defend such laws,but that they see it as such a trend to have to prepare for. You can read the entire article here
