"We should strive to have it legalized"
Is polygamy becoming the new gay movement in America?
[Cast of "Sister Wives"]
With television shows such as HBOs Big Love and TLCs Sister Wives, polygamy is the once-taboo lifestyle that appears to be gaining wider acceptance especially on the heels of homosexual marriage victories across the nation.
... the website Pro-Polygamy.com declared Aug. 19 the 12th annual Polygamy Day. According to the site, since it began, the annual celebration grew into a widespread and religiously-neutral individual celebration around the country among all forms of consenting-adult pro-polygamists.

I think it is an insideous scam that Hollywood is trying to use against Romney.
Dogs and cats living together...mass hysteria.
That almost makes sense.
I have long predicted that polygamy would become the next big left-wing cause célèbre after they won the same-sex marriage fight.
And you are proven right.
Thanks...I'll ask my wife if I can marry another female. Of course, I think my wife would tell me it is fine AFTER she DIVORCE me!!
One wife is ENOUGH...
Just imagine having more than one wife telling you what to do!
We already have that. It is called “Abortion.”
Polygamy is legal in Ontario, Canada. Also in India. Yet people claim it’s “unthinkable.”
