When you look at world history, and especially biblical history, you will find that polygamy has been an accepted and honorable way of life. Many beloved prophets of the Old Testament were polygamists, and Abraham was a friend of God, all while having many wives. Polygamy was once a lifestyle accepted by all.
For Christians of 2000 years ago, polygamy was stopped by the Roman empire.
Paul, in his letter to the church in Rome, said, A bishop should be the husband of one wife. He was simply telling them to obey the law of the land. Roman law is alive and well today in America, and we all know what happened to the Roman Empire.
Its very unfortunate what has happened in Colorado City, Ariz., and in other states. It has given polygamy a terrible name and image....

Wow, how disingenuous to frame Paul’s instruction in such a false manner. Never mind not point out the curses that came upon Israel for its polygyny.
Yeah. Just what America needs. A bunch of freeloading clowns pumping out their spawn for the taxpayers to support and raise for them. Morons.
God allowed polygamy, he never approved of it. It didn’t work out too well for Abraham, David, or Solomon.
Compared to all of the other vileness we’re into, polygamy is rather benign and old fashioned.
Abraham did not have multiple wives, either. Hagar was a mistress, not a wife, and he didn’t marry Keturah until after Sarah died.
There’s benign vileness?
(Remember, being “vile” means to be utterly morally depraved.)
I’m all for it, as long as I don’t have to pay for it.
Polygamy, eh? The libertarians are at it again. They are running amuck on FR these days.
I hope you don’t mean me. I’m pretty far from a Ron/Rand Paul nut.
No sir, I was referring to the lead article: Leslie Jacobs who wrote the piece for the Las Vegas Sun. Probably a libertarian.
I’ve found one wife at a time is quite sufficient, thank you very much.
Oh, what the hell. Lets save a lot of time and trouble and just decriminalize everything any human being ever did or wants to do! UTOPIA!
Abraham was a friend of God, all while having many wives.
Typical filthy Mormon lie...
Abraham was not a polygamist...
Just waiting for the first court case. How will the courts say no, if they’ve already allowed homosexual marriage?
This could make family even more fun than it is.
“This could make family even more fun than it is.”
Was MEANT to read: “This could make family LAW even more fun than it is.”
