The A&E reality series Duck Dynasty nearly got derailed when one of its cast members echoed thoughts of many church goers regarding the gay lifestyle.
Come March, TLC will bring polygamy back into its lineup, and it likely won't generate a fraction of the controversy that Phil Robertson's musings met.
The one-hour special My Five Wives debuted last year on TLC, and now the network is offering nine new episodes of the polygamist clan.
As TLC says in its press release concerning the show, "families come in all different shapes and sizes ..."
The first new show will bow on March 9, and each show promises to look "behind closed doors" to see this "big, loving, progressive family."(continued)

The late Rodney Dangerfield made a movie called, “My Five Wives.”
those aren’t “wives”, more like concubines
Ah, yes. A series about a man who weds a wife and has four adulterous girlfriends living under the same roof. Lovely. I’m sure G_d approves.
Bigot! Polyphobe! H8R! Etc, etc...
I have never understood why a man would more than one wife....
You know it’s only a matter of time when they bring
out ......”My Five Gay Husbands”. A progressive family
Wrong! THREE wives and TWO adulterous girlfriends.
They help with the house work...
To be truly “progressive” one will be a 12-year-old child.
Mayhap our interpretation of marriage differs. One can only be legally married to one person at a time, all the rest would amount to adulterous affairs. So, that being said, one wife and four to help with the house work, with benefits. LOL!
Will they show the truth about the 4 “extra” wives qualifying for and collecting welfare because under the law they are “single mothers”? That’s what is happening all over Utah, southern Idaho, and northern Arizona right now.
Question is: What are people learning? Yikes!
You and me both. Can you imagine? Then have soke children all at the same time with them? What a howling mess.
Oh My! Who would subject himself to that sort of existence?!
They would all have to look like the gals in this vid for me to even consider that.
And have their bank accounts.
Groucho was ahead of his time:
There’s another show called Sister Wives, I’m not sure what network it’s on, and it is the same premise. Some guy who thinks he’s a stud with all these women vying for his attention. And there are children from these relationships as well. Why is it in most all polygamous relationships, it’s one man, and many women?
Five wives means five mothers-in law.What sane man would subject himself to THAT?
and if each wife has 5 husbands and they each have 5 wives and they each have.... imagine how fast the VD spreads
Well, King Solomon is considered to have been the ‘wisest’ human to have ever lived and he makes these individuals look like pikers.......
I wonder if 50% of the public is already for it?
Great scene. Groucho makes more sense than any current day Democrat.
“Will they show the truth about the 4 extra wives qualifying for and collecting welfare because under the law they are single mothers? Thats what is happening all over Utah, southern Idaho, and northern Arizona right now.”
how true. they call it “bleeding the monster”.
Kyrgyzstans Grand Mufti Issues Fatwa Declaring Homosexuality Un-Islamic
But according to GLADD and the rest of the Pink Mafia, Phil Robertson is public enemy number one.
In a statement placed on the Kyrgyz Muslims Spiritual Directorate website on January 30, Toktomushev said Islam absolutely forbids same-sex relations.
Because Joseph Smith was looking for a way to sanction adultery, and men were happy to buy into it.
"Sister Wives" is a train wreck.....four jealous, miserable, depressed women trying to convince the world that monogamous women are missing out because polygamy makes women better individuals.
Plenty of men in the USA have had more than one wife. Newt Gingrich comes to mind. So does Rush Limbaugh. Regardless of any other arguments the Bible is clear that both of these conservative icons are either polygamous or adulterous. You pick.
The hypocrisy here is that our society is just fine with these men and it's also just fine with Charlie Sheen and Hugh Hefner who practiced polygamy openly and brazenly. But if a man commits to his women instead of treating them like whores or just abandoning them when they no longer suit his tastes, well, that's a problem.
And don't get me started on the legions of black men who openly practice taxpayer-subsidized polygamy while no one says a word about it lest they be called 'racist'.
All of the aforementioned men have more than one wife even if they are not formally married to each of them at the same time.
That said, I have a hard time with condemning the men who want more than one woman and who commit to taking care of them all.
I understand your point...but getting a divorce can have biblical approval....I don’t have any idea why Newt or Rush or even Ronald Reagan got divorced....they could have been valid biblical reasons....doubt it but I don’t know...
Also in todays world as long as you are legally divorced and are legally married...you are not committing adultery....or in a polygamous union...
