  • Does Old Testament Polygamy Justify Same-Sex Marriage?

    Stand To Reason ^ | 08/20/2018 | Alan Shlemon
    I was recently confronted with a challenge about marriage at one of my events. The claim was that God permits same-sex marriage today because marriage is not clearly defined in Scripture. Adam and Eve were a monogamous heterosexual couple, but later in Scripture God allowed men to marry multiple women. This signals a trajectory in the Bible towards more openness of sexual expression and in the definition of marriage. Therefore, same-sex marriage should be allowed by Christians today. I don’t think the Bible permits same-sex marriage for a whole host of reasons, but I’ll only explain the ones I offered...

    This story just keeps getting worse. The son of one of the most prominent and respected imams in the United States turns out to be running a jihad training camp in New Mexico, teaching young children to become school shooters. Now it turns out that he has two wives, one in Georgia, and one in New Mexico. The Daily Mail says this is because he follows an interpretation of Islam that allows for polygamy, but actually all of Islam allows for polygamy, because it’s in the Quran. The question is, how long has he been flouting American law, and with...

    Two leaders of a fundamentalist group who between them have 29 wives and 160 children were sentenced to house arrest on Tuesday after being convicted of polygamy. Winston Blackmore, 61, was found guilty last year of having 24 wives while James Oler, 53, was found guilty of having five wives. Blackmore has 149 kids, the Star Vancouver reported. Blackmore's six-month conditional sentence, to be served under house arrest, allows him to go to work and deal with medical emergencies. Oler's term is three months of house arrest. Both face 12 months of probation. Blackmore was also ordered to perform 150...

    Not for nothing, but the latest fruits of the sexual revolution are even more bizarre than most of us imagined.We knew things would get a little freaky, but maybe we didn’t know it would involve an upswing in polygamy, amorous activities with plastic women, or cuddling sessions with electric candelabra.But that is the state of affairs as we approach Valentine’s Day this year.We shouldn’t be surprised. When a society deifies sexual expression, it deifies a jealous god who will not be satisfied until every biological, social, and moral norm is overturned.Consider the upswing in open marriages.

    Two Utah girls were found safe Monday three months after they were allegedly kidnapped by their “doomsday prepper” dad -- who reportedly betrothed his daughters to a cult leader. An Amber Alert was canceled Monday when authorities found Hattie Briella Coltharp, 4, and Dinah Elizabeth Coltharp, 8, outside Lund, FOX13 Salt Lake City reported. Authorities initiated the alert when they received a tip and arrested Samuel Warren Shaffer, 34, who calls himself the prophet of a polygamous sect named “Knights of the Crystal Blade.” The children’s father, John Coltharp, is a member of the sect. Authorities raided a suspected sect...

    The London Daily Mail ^ | November 10, 2017 | Molly Rose Pike
    The man behind a website to help Muslim men find 'second wives' has insisted the service can 'empower' women. Azad Chaiwala, from Sunderland, set up SecondWife.com, for the 'small section' of Muslims who are looking to have multiple wives. Appearing on ITV's This Morning, Mr Chaiwala said his website would discourage women from being mistresses and instead 'empower' them by legitimising the relationship in a way that allows it to be regarded as more than just an affair. Viewers were shocked by Azed's beliefs, saying he was using the website to justify cheating. One tweeted: 'He says it empowers women......

    FULL TITLE: Polygamous fundamentalists say they are victims of 'cultural cleansing' as they are evicted from their homes by the Government A polygamous group of religious fundamentalists fears their community is being destroyed by 'cultural cleansing'. Members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints have been evicted from their homes in Hildale, a 100-year-old red rock community on the Utah-Arizona border. The evictions stem from an order by a Utah state judge who became fed up with people not paying $100-a-month occupancy fees.

    The "non-scandal" scandal involving a former I.T. aide to several Democratic congressmen, including Debbie Wasserman Schultz, took an interesting turn when the wife of the alleged hacker and fraudster Imran Awan showed up in court separate from her husband and had retained a separate attorney. Imran Awan's own wife, Hina Alvi, filed papers in a Pakistani court accusing her husband of fraud and of marrying another woman.  The couple did not look at each other when they showed up in federal court on Friday.
  • Disgusting Swedish Children’s Book Promotes Polygamy, ‘Grandpa Has Four Wives’

    A disgusting new book made its way to bookshelves in Sweden titled “Grandpa Has Four Wives” and goes to great lengths to normalize Sharia law. The Swedish book, which is titled “Farfar har fyra fruar”, is being printed in both Somali and Swedish and is being promoted to children from ages three to six. The blurb for the book, which was written by Oscar Trimbel, reads: “Asli has never been to Somalia, but now she finally gets to go there with her dad, to meet grandfather and all her grandmothers.”

    The “gay” agenda is as old as the LGBT or “gay” movement itself. Every movement has an agenda, of course, which is simply the purpose for which it was founded. The ultimate goal of the “gay” movement has always been the elimination of the restrictions on sexual “freedom” imposed by Judeo-Christian civilization. Others have desired this result, but homosexuals have always pursued it hardest because their sexual appetites deviate furthest from the Biblical “one flesh” norm of lifetime heterosexual monogamy, thus engendering the greatest degree of condemnation. For example, male homosexuality was a capital offense under the Mosaic Law, while...

    AFTER her husband secretly married the second time in Thailand 15 years ago, Salmah Khalid has been supporting her four children on her own, working long hours and sometimes borrowing money to make ends meet. The 43-year-old nurse said she only found out about the second marriage two months after her husband remarried, following which they had a huge row. Salmah said she didn’t see her husband for a year after that. “In the past, he would give me RM300 for household expenses and we would split the loan repayment for the house. After he married, I had to take...

    Support for polygamy in the United States is at an all-time high, and Americans' love for TV may be one explanation for the trend. Gallup polling on American values and beliefs in May found acceptance of a person having multiple spouses at one time has grown in the U.S., with 17 percent of people saying the practice is "morally acceptable." That number marked the highest rate on record dating back to 2003, according to Gallup data.

    A Muslim religious leader in Ireland has called for a debate around the recognition of polygamous families after a court refused to recognise the second wife of a Lebanese refugee who has become a naturalised citizen. Dr Ali Selim of the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland said families fleeing warzones are “disintegrating” because of laws in this country that don’t exist at home. “Now is not yesterday’s situation,” he told i. “People are forced to leave their country, where they used to live in accordance with the legislation of that country.” “This raises questions we have not faced before.” The...

    Gatestone Institute ^ | June 25, 2017 | Nonie Darwish
    Islam was created 600 years after Christianity not to affirm the Bible, but to discredit it; not to co-exist with "the people of the book" -- Jews and Christians -- but to replace them. It is hard to read Islamic law books without concluding that Islamic values are essentially "a rebellion against the Ten Commandments". Islam violates the commandment "Thou shalt not murder" when Allah commanded Muslims to kill Allah's enemies, and in the process, kill and be killed in jihad if they are to be guaranteed heaven. Accepting a parallel legal system would effectively nullify actual freedom for...

    The ‘single mother epidemic’ in Central Kenya has seen wazee advocating for the re-introduction of polygamy, a widely frowned-upon practice in the region. While men in Central Kenya are known to have mpango wa kandos, there are calls to re-embrace polygamy after Joseph Kaguthi, the head of Nyumba Kumi Initiative in the country recently caused a furore when he asked women to accommodate their husbands’ lovers as co-wives. Kaguthi, the one-time no-nonsense provincial administrator, told The Nairobian that one of the reasons he advocates for polygamy is because “it is selfish and inconsiderate of women not to share their husbands”....

    A 70-year-old citizen of Taif got the surprise of his life when his two wives egged him on to get married a third time, and that too to a younger woman. They not only made the suggestion but also offered help in the form of arranging the marriage. Awad bin Aouaimer Al-Thouaibi told local media that he could not believe his ears when his wives came up with the idea. “First I thought they were pulling a fast one on me. However, they looked serious about it and said they want to do that out of love and respect for...

    In 2016, same-sex “marriage” was legalized in Colombia. One year later, the courts have now recognized a polyamorous “family” of three men. And there is no slippery slope. As reported by the Daily Mail: Actor Victor Hugo Prada and his two partners, sports instructor John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez, have signed legal papers with a solicitor in the city of Medellin, establishing them as a family unit with inheritance rights. “We wanted to validate our household … and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family,” said one of the men,...

    Popular televangelist Pat Robertson, who serves as chancellor of Regent University and chairman of the Christian Broadcasting Network, has said he doesn't know of anything in the Bible that condemns polygamy — the practice of having more than one wife or husband at the same time. "I'm not sure I know anything in the Bible that indicates polygamy, as such, is against the Bible. But we don't do it and there are a lot of laws based on the New Testament [that] don't permit it, and that's where we are," Robertson said in a clip from "The 700 Club" series...
