Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged

From our Not Terribly Relevant But Too Good to Pass Up file comes this follow-up item:

We previously noted here at Holier Than Thou that Utah judge and fundamentalist Mormon Walter Steed was under fire for violating the state’s polygamy laws — he has more than one wife.

Well, it seems that Steed lost his most recent appeal and will indeed be removed from the bench he has held for the past 25 years — all the while continuing his polygamist ways.

1) So, just how many wives does Judge Walter Steed have?

A) Two
B) Three
C) Four
D) Five

2) And, aside from all being his wives, what other relationship do these women have?

A) They are all second cousins
B) They are all first cousins
C) They are all aunts and nieces to each other
D) They are all sisters

3) And lastly, how many children does Walter Steed have with his stable of wives?

A) 18
B) 24
C) 32
D) 40

1) B: Judge Walter Steed has three wives
2) D: His wives are all sisters
3) C: And with those three sisters, he has 32 children.

The court ruled that “When the law is violated or ignored by those charged by society with the fair and impartial enforcement of the law, the stability of our society is placed at undue risk.”

No word yet on whether Steed will face criminal charges…
