"CALLER: Hello. Mr. Blackmore, do any of your wives work?
BLACKMORE: Just about all of them do.
KING: They all do?
KING: And while they're working, who's watching the kids?

If Polygomy is fine then what do you think about gay marriage?
"Most American men are polygamists. Only they do it one wife at a time."
Actually no. The divorce rate is so high because of serial divorcees. Most couples who get married stay married. If a man marries and divorces twice, that's two divorces compared with a couple who stays married (0 divorces).
ok. The point remains though. a very large percentage of American men practice the next to worst form of polygamy. A smaller, but large, proportion of men practice the worst form, impregnating multiple women while never assuming any responsibility whatsoever.
BYW: It is only ilegal because of a document. It' interesting that a man could cohabitate with 100 women if he chose and have children with all of them, quite legally, as long as he didn;t try to marry them.
Legal "marriage" is a government program to give traditional families an advantage, children and spouses, in the tax and legal system. It forms a contract and is designed to encourage and boost traditional families because they are beneficial (essential) to society.
We have all kinds of government programs that engage in social engineering for "targeted" members of our society.
Marriage should remain exclusively for traditional families (2 parents (opposite sex), with or wihout children)
Homosexual couples should never recieve marriage status. They are destructive to society.
Homosexual couples are free to cohabitate. They can establish living wills for each other (to assign medical decision responsibilities). They can write wills to pass on assets. They do recieve equal treatment under the laws.
They do not need the "procreation promotion program" (marriage). it is ludicrous and also a good example of the tyranny of the anti-Christians that this ever became a consideration.
