Polygamous family with five wives and 24 CHILDREN says their new reality show is as liberating as..

The newest Utah polygamous family featured in a reality TV show says sharing their story with a wide audience has been liberating. Brady Williams and his five wives were a bit apprehensive ahead of the airing of a pilot episode in September, but they said this week an interview with The Associated Press that it felt liberating to be open about who they are and what they believe. 'It really is like coming out of the closet,' said Brady Williams, 43. 'It's very liberating.'

With SSM de facto going nationwide just waiting for the Kennedy 5-4 SCOTUS decision the NE Corridor/West Coast Elite are now onto the next frontier of redefining marriage to include polygamy. I saw an ad for this show last night. Any over/under on when the first state will legalize polygamy?

Hm, let me think on this.

I’d be OK with it as long as the bill included a bit that the “family” would not receive any welfare benefits.

Most of these illegal polygamous families are supported by welfare. Do they bring that out in these “reality” shows?

I can understand why immoral people want their private lives to be endorsed by others, but why would any decent person want to celebrate and watch this sort of nonsense? What’s next, a reality show celebrating adultery and abortion? “I’m so proud of how many men I’ve never met are willing to jump in my bed when they’re drunk enough.”

When SSM first came onto the scene, many of us were ridiculed for arguing “What’s next?”.

We put forth the argument that if SSM were allowed, it would open the door to other aberrant partnerships.

Now that SSM is practically a fait-accompli, the media/academia/left has new things to “normalize”.

All they are doing is PROVING our original argument.

Gay marriage, polygamy....I can only imagine what the NEXT definition of marriage will be.

Don’t call it “same sex marriage”. That’s their term.

I’d love to see a breakdown between male and female ratings for this type of garbage. I mean are there men out there who watch these things? I guess it’s just hard for me to imagine, like imagining wanting to watch WNBA or the jewelry shopping network or something.

So the reality show with three wives was not enough?

Utah, Idaho, Colorado, Arizona. That order.

Why aren’t these people in jail? I thought polygamy was illegal in the United States.

At least for Utah a federal judge threw out their anti-polygamy law de-criminalizing de facto polygamy. Although technically the guy has only one marriage license.

Aren't they already celebrated on reality TV?

They are arguing that the 14th amendment grants them the right to queer marriage under equal protection.

If they win that it will mean that Bisexuals will have the right to group marriage. It’s the same argument once you find a right to marry whoever you claim to love/have sex with.

In Obama's America, we only enforce laws we like--such as the one that requires Christian bakers to do wedding cakes for gay couples.

Ha ha, reminds me of some rant some radio sports analyst went off on when the WNBA was going on strike. It was hilarious. I don’t remember his name, but I am sure some industrious Freeper knows and can post the link. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.

'Here Kitty Kitty...' comes to mind - sadly.

I wouldn’t watch one of these weirdo family reality shows if it was simply about the day to day adventures of a normal Christian hetero married couple with 3 kids, it’s just not going to happen. Stacking polygamy or gays or rednecks or child beauty show freaks on top of the concept doesn’t make it any more interesting to me, but it must for a lot of mouth breathers because these shows are all over the place. I would love to know the ratings breakdown for gender for these things.

. . for Utah a federal judge threw out their anti-polygamy law . . “

Unbelievable irony in that Utah had to give up the practice of polygamy by the federal government in order to become a state.

Everything is Downside Up.

“Don’t call it “same sex marriage”. That’s their term.”

Damn right! It’s not a “marriage”; it’s a slandering of a sacred institution.

Heck, the prohibition is in Utah’s state constitution, which also states the constitutional provision can’t be amended without consent of the United States of America.
