Will Polygamy Be the Next Homosexuality?
The Gospel Herald ^ | June 20, 2014 | Leah Marieann Klett

Posted on 06/22/2014 1:00:23 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

As the battle for marriage equality rages on, a different, more obscure kind of sexual immorality is slowly rearing its ugly head: polygamy.

Polygamy is defined as the "the custom of having more than one wife or husband at the same time," a practice which directly violates the Biblical commandment instructing marriage to be between a single man and wife (1 Timothy 3:2, 12 and Titus 1:6).

However, the secular media is increasingly attempting to normalize, and even glamorize this kind of perverted lifestyle.

Showtime is airing an original series called Polyamory: Married & Dating, which follows two polyamorous families living in Southern California. The show follows in the footsteps of "Sister Wives," which shows a depicting a man "happily married" to three wives.

Most recently, NBC released a show called True Believers, in which viewers get an inside look into what it's like to "live with multiple partners without sacrificing the comforts of home." The producers get up close and person with five adults and a 9-year-old girl who see nothing amiss with their lifestyle.

Jennifer LeClaire, author of "The Making of a Prophet" calls the push for polygamy a "new level of debauchery," warning that it will soon follow in the footsteps of the homosexual agenda in becoming a national issue.

"The prince of the power of the air is using media to push a new level of debauchery to generations young and old," she writes. "ABC has preached the "gospel of polyamory" in its attempt to move past gay marriage into further destruction of God's plan for the family." "Slowly and steadily, the push for polyamory is rising in the media, in many ways taking a page from the gay agenda's playbook. Polyamory is already a legislative issue in Canada. Rest assured, America is next. The shadow of Sodom and Gomorrah hangs over America. Perversion is rising. Currently, polyamory is illegal in 21 states, but recent polls suggest that number may change. NBC reports that 5 percent of people in the United States are in polyamorous relationships and reveals there are over 900 in Atlanta's polyamory community. LeClaire warns against complacency, saying Christians have an obligation to protect God's plan for the family and protect the next generation. She encourages Christians to unite together and pray for the preservation of traditional marriage. "If we sit by and complain or stick our heads in the sand, arguing that Christians should not be discussing these issues, then we're admitting defeat and displeasing Christ. But if you believe that God can deliver some from the grip of immorality...then drop to your knees and join with me in intercessory prayer. It's not only about setting the captives free-it's about protecting the next generation of young minds the media is molding.

Polygamy
Pedophilia
Bestiality

The order does not matter. All will be pushed as part of the agenda. The Left will take whatever it can get. But the Left is relentless and expects to get all three, given enough time.

And after polygamy, comes paganism, and after paganism - human sacrifice beyond abortion and euthanasia.

Somehow, I don’t see pedophilia becoming mainstream. Unlike homosexual marriage, there aren’t any groups openly calling for it to become legal, there aren’t “pedophilia pride” parades, no politicians are running on it, and it’s apparently so disgusting that even prisoners in jail can’t stand such people. As perverted and stupid as society has become, I just can’t see it stooping even to that low level.

Now, incest between two adults, bestiality, polygamy...those are another story.

There have been several TV shows about polygamous groups, polyamorous people, throuples and such, the media has been on this for a while. The push is there, but is it the next one? I dunno.

40 years ago, there weren't any groups openly calling for the legalization of homosexual marriage. In fact, if you stated that increased normalization of homosexual behavior would lead to homosexual marriage, you were accused of being ridiculous and of mounting a dishonest argument.

What could go wrong?

Warren Steed Jeffs (born December 3, 1955) is the president of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS Church). In 2011, Jeffs was convicted of two felony counts of child sexual assault.

Jeffs gained international notoriety in May 2006 when he was placed on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution on Utah state charges related to his alleged arrangement of illegal marriages between his adult male followers and underage girls. He was arrested in August 2006 in Nevada, and agreed to be taken to Utah for trial. In May and July 2007 the State of Arizona charged him with eight additional counts, including sexual conduct with minors and incest, in two separate cases.

His Utah trial, which began in early September 2007 in St. George, Utah, lasted less than a month, and on September 25 he was convicted of two counts of rape as an accomplice.

On November 20, 2007, he was sentenced to imprisonment for 10 years to life and began serving his sentence at the Utah State Prison. However, the conviction was overturned by the Utah Supreme Court on July 27, 2010, because of incorrect jury instructions.

He was extradited to Texas, where he was found guilty of sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault of children in connection with a raid of an FLDS owned and occupied West Texas ranch in 2008. After the jury had deliberated for less than 30 minutes, 55-year-old Jeffs was sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years, to be served consecutively, and a $10,000 fine for sexual assault of both 12- and 15-year-old girls.

Polygamy has at least been an accepted form of marriage in many lands for thousands of years. It is arguably far less perverse than homosexuals pretending to marry. It is bizarre that our nation wants homosexuals to pretend they are married, but won’t allow polygamy. I’ve always wondered how American law treats the wives of those married in nations where polygamy is legal.

No, I don’t want polygamy legal either. But if I had to choose between legalizing it or homosexuals, I would come down on the side of King David instead of Sodom...

NAMBLA was making a pretty public push during some years, although they seem pretty quiet right now, and they got a little bit of support from the libertarians in recent years.

The gay movement was openly allowing them for a while but they seem to have felt that it was hurting their goal of mainstreaming the gay movement, but it is all waiting in the wings.

The courts rationale for homosexual marriage is very simple, if people love each other the state should not keep them from marrying. There is no rational basis from which to not apply the same rationale to polygamy. It, like homosexual marriage, is a done deal and if you don’t bake them three wedding cakes it is off to the re-education camps for you.

I think the pedophiles will be next because most folks cannot afford more than one wife. In fact, most men, myself included, cannot afford even one wife if she really likes to shop.

100 years ago, homosexuality was almost university condemned, as paedophilia is now. 50 years later, the push for the normalisation of homosexuality began in earnest, leading to the situation that exists today. It would be a terrible mistake to assume even dearly held and universal moral values will be perceived as such even a few decades down the line. It is frightening how quickly and how radically society’s moral values have changed in the space of a single lifetime, and there is nothing to suggest this trend will stop any time soon.

Incest....with Gay marry there is no procreation reason to block incestuous marry so if you follow the legal logic..incest will have to be allowed...

Truth is I view Gay as a super-set (a form) of Incest

Funny, one gay dream is of science giving them a way to generically procreate..

If there is ever is a way to artificially create a child from the genetic material from two males or two females

I fear the genetic problems will be far worst then what you see in “traditional” inbreeding

You don’t seriously justify polygamy on the basis of past primitive social systems. Human sacrifice and cannibalism have been practiced throughout history, and even today. However, we do not want the roll back civilization to the primitive systems and take humans back to a savage existence.

Legally, given the decisions on homosexual marriage, I don’t see why it wouldn’t. I think both the bigamy and consanguinity laws are on borrowed time right now, and in that order, because there’s less “ick” factor to multiple marriages than incestuous ones. But make no mistake, they’re going to happen. (I think it’s going to create moral, legal and practical chaos, don’t get me wrong, but the legal and judicial professions aren’t paying a whole lot of attention to what I think.)

Polygamy doesn't violate the Natural Law. Else, God never would have tolerated it, and in the case of Leverite Marriage, actually require it.

Aquinas and St. Augustine, as I recall, agreed with that, but they also saw that polygamy works against the "two-shall-become-one" paradigm that Jesus set down, so they didn't allow it.

But to say it's anywhere near as perverse as two guys having at it, then that's just silly.

The ancient Israelis had a very different attitude about sex than we have. Remember the story of the old King David and Abishag the Shunamite. Looking at beautiful naked girls was believed to have strong medicinal benefits!

Hey, if it's good enough for King David, it's good enough for me.

Is "transgender" mainstream? Of course not. But on Friday, Obama quietly and "steadily extended his administration's advocacy to the smallest and least accepted band of the LGBT rainbow: transgender Americans."

To the people who are determined to destroy Western Civilization, no deviancy is too small to enlist in the job.

I figure “one man and one woman” is in the Bible for a very good reason. The good Lord knew that the stress of a multiple partner household would be too difficult to maintain.

Of course, I have fantasized about having “Brother Husbands”, lol. A plumber that landscapes as a hobby, an electrician that mechanics as a hobby and a doctor that loves to cook with a brother who is a veterinarian. They would all maintain highly successful businesses.

It won’t be the same polygamy, as what we see with the Mormons or Muslims. It will be group marriage, like a hippy commune with everyone having sex with each other.

A large percentage of the world has legal polygamy (mainly the Muslim world). A much stronger case can be made for polygamy than for same sex marriage.

“You don’t seriously justify polygamy on the basis of past primitive social systems.”

If you ask me which violates God’s law and natural law, homosexuality or polygamy, I’d say homosexuality.

Now, I also wrote “No, I don’t want polygamy legal either.” However, it is not unnatural for a male mammal to mate with more than one female. And while scripture doesn’t hold polygamy up as the best, neither does it roundly condemn it or say it is perverse.

Exactly.

Sodomy is the worst thing a guy can do.

Reality will have its revenge. First came the gay bathhouse scene of the 1970s, with AIDS following close behind. Now we have all of that coming back with the AIDS drugs, so a new bug is going to exploit that wonderfully easy transmission niche.

Meningitis is already out there. Maybe some form of Ebola will be next?
