Germany: Citizenship for Polygamous Migrants?

May 10, 2019 by

By Soeren Kern, Gatestone Institute: The German government has withdrawn proposed legislation that would have banned immigrants in polygamous marriages from obtaining German citizenship. The proposed ban had been included in draft changes to Germany’s naturalization law, but was quietly removed from the final text, apparently in the interests of political correctness and multiculturalism.

by Laura Perrins, The Conservative Woman: Christian Guy, who was formerly David Cameron’s special adviser on poverty, tweeted out a question that has generated some debate. It was: Someone I met earlier asked a great question: which common attitudes/traits in Britain today will be considered outrageous in 150 years’ time? What we (or at least I) are talking about here, is what laws or customs will be considered morally outrageous in 150 years’ time? I tweeted in reply that this depends...
