"Like it says in the Koran?" Huh? Did she really want to go there?

I can’t wait to hear the homosexualists explain why polygamy is not OK.

I don’t think so. They will see it as empowering heterosexual males.

Any word from NAMBLA yet?

I guess narcissists and multiple-personality-disorder people can marry themselves, too.

They will be lining up for it...

Got that on a news story today “they were not born that way”, “it’s not the same”.

You mean multiple sex partners? They have that anyway.

It’s not the same. The big deal is having it legalized. To shove it in the mainstream society’s face. To make the mainstream society support it as a legitimate marriage with benefits.

“It is everlasting wrath. It would be dreadful to suffer this fierceness and wrath of Almighty God one moment; but you must suffer it to all eternity. There will be no end to this exquisite horrible misery. When you look forward, you shall see a long for ever, a boundless duration before you, which will swallow up your thoughts, and amaze your soul; and you will absolutely despair of ever having any deliverance, any end, any mitigation, any rest at all. You will know certainly that you must wear out long ages, millions of millions of ages, in wrestling and conflicting with this almighty merciless vengeance; and then when you have so done, when so many ages have actually been spent by you in this manner, you will know that all is but a point to what remains. So that your punishment will indeed be infinite. Oh, who can express what the state of a soul in such circumstances is! All that we can possibly say about it, gives but a very feeble, faint representation of it; it is inexpressible and inconceivable: For ‘who knows the power of God’s anger?’” - Jonathan Edwards

From the article: Anne Wilde, a vocal advocate for polygamist rights who practiced the lifestyle herself until her husband died in 2003,...society’s stringent attachment to traditional “family values” is evolving.

Well, let's see: The Utah Mormons said in 1830 (in Book of Mormon)...
...that polygamy was an "abomination"
...Then, the following year, when Joseph Smith's schemes started in on bedding a 16 yo housekeeper...polygamy secretly "evolved" to being an "in" thing...
...Then, Smith began greatly accruing multiple wives in the early 1840s...
...and getting some of his fellow leaders to do the same...
...and then polygamy "evolved" within Mormondom so that between the 1850s and 1880s, Lds leaders were expected to have multiple wives -- touting that it was a condition of the highest degree of afterlife glory...
...and then the "brakes" began to be applied to Mormon polygamy in 1890 -- de-evolving...
...and by the early 1900s, few such unions were being secretly solemnized by Lds leaders anymore...

By 1945, the last MAINSTREAM Lds polygamous "prophet" had passed on...

And polygamy for the mainstream Mormons had been fully relegated to (a) the afterlife; and (b) When the Mormon Jesus returns.

And so...just because groups like the mainstream and non-mainstream Mormons have attacked in ALL THREE last centuries (21st, 20th, 19th) the institution of monogamy, that we have to let the marriage evolutionists dictate to everybody else what marriage is?

Here is the libertarian position on all this gay marriage, homosexual military, homosexual immigration, adoption, polygamy stuff.

It is why you are hearing more and more GOP rinos going libertarian.

1.3 Personal Relationships (libertarian)

Sexual orientation, preference, gender, or gender identity should have no impact on the government’s treatment of individuals, such as in current marriage, child custody, adoption, immigration or military service laws. Government does not have the authority to define, license or restrict personal relationships. Consenting adults should be free to choose their own sexual practices and personal relationships.

Polygamy would be bad and in many ways much worse than homosexual marriages.

Polygamy would turn our country from a Constitutional Republic to a Patriarchal Oligarchy of sorts complete with aristocrats and peasants.
