‘Sister Wives’ Prompts Pro Polygamy
Ruling and Debate in Utah

ABC News, by Cecilia Vega

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/16/2014 8:50:38 AM

One husband, four wives and 17 children. America knows them as reality TV stars on the hit show Sister Wives, but today they are unlikely legal crusaders in a fight over the fate of polygamy. “I think that anybody should be able to organize their family according to how they choose,” said Kody Brown. It is an epic court battle, with Kody Brown and his wives against the state of Utah. They maintain theirs is a healthy lifestyle, where the wives have jobs, the children go to school, and everyone stands on equal ground. But that is not how authorities in Utah see it.

I have occasionally watched this show. Polygamy fascinates me, but not in a good way. I cannot imagine entering the life, but it´s interesting to watch those who do. Kody Brown has one wife and three shack-ups. Their choice. But, 16 of those 17 children are not legitimate. That is a choice the children didn´t get to make.

On a continuum of normal (a married man and woman) to absolutely abnormal (two men in a sexual relationship) I would put these people closer to normal than absolutely abnormal.
Perhaps I am not alone on this, which would explain the popularity of their show.

I watch the show every week and it seems to me that there is love in this family. Love of the children, mothers and father. They are not on welfare, they all take care of the children as parents, they all work. As long as all the women were adults in the relationship, I do not see why there is a problem. No one was forced to lead this lifestyle.

At least these children all know who their father is. There are no billboards in their areas advertising DNA testing to find out for sure.

It´s immaterial if it is harmful or not. It is none of the government´s business.
Marriage is a religious sacrament. It should not be a government licensed privilege.

What you are seeing is a sugar coated version of perversion. Just ask any of the girls that escaped Warren Jeff´s little compound how fun it was being married at 14 to men that were 50 years old. And the state of Utah has known about this for a long time and does nothing. And I won´t even go into what "religion" we are talking about but they control everything in Utah.

When will some otherwise freedom-loving Constitutionalists wake up and see that the government has no role whatsoever to play as far as marriage is concerned.

Voluntary private relationships are just that - - private. None of the government´s business.

I´ve never gotten an answer to a question I have asked over and over again - - When the government gives you a marriage "license" - - exactly what is it "licensing" you to do?

Let´s put an end to government involvement in our private lives - - for once and for all.

The very same arguments used to mandate same-sex marriage were used in the Utah decision reported herein. Thanks to the gay-marriage movement, polygamy WILL become the law of the land. Pandora´s box has been opened.

Now that gay marriage is legal, it is just a matter of time before polygamy, group marriages and pedophilia are also legal.

Pedophilia will be accomplished via reduction in "age of consent" laws.

#9 is correct. With gay marriage being legalized there is no longer any logical reason to keep polygamy illegal.

Personally, I cannot imagine having to deal with more than one wife but there are undoubtedly more than a few who will.

#10 has it correct. Everything slides toward depravity. It is simply the nature of man to slip down to the next layer of immorality. We have survived as a culture this long due to the barriors religious faith placed upon the culture and the stigmas that have enforced behaviors deemed unhealthy. Whether you believe in God or not the fact is that the culture it built worked for the most part. As it breaks down we see what happens.

#5, maybe polygamy is near normal in societies where women do not have the same right as men. (However, look at the age these girls married and look at the number of un married young men.)

In our society, if you grant men the right to have more than wife, you must grant women the right have more than one husband.

So, a society when each gender can have an unlimited number of spouses at the same time.

Follow that to the logical conclusion.

There will no such thing as "marriage."

(And for fun, you can also be "married" to either sex.)

Divorce, inheritance, child support, child custody, health insurance, taxes -- Lawyer paradise.

The punishment for polygamy is typically having to have more than one wife.

Kidding aside, polygamy (and that is what it would be in practice - one man - several women) has possibly been around as long as, if not longer than, monogamy. Apes seem to practice polygamy. Male gorillas have their ´harems´.

There are problems with polygamy, especially in the modern welfare state - where rules would need to rewritten to accommodate the practice. However, since we currently practice a form of serial polygamy (one man - several wives but just one at a time) the rewrites shouldn´t be too dramatic. Muslims may rejoice, but oddly enough, polygamy is not as widespread in the Islamic world as urban myth would have us believe.

And again, #15, we are only viewing this from one perspective.

How will those welfare regulations work for the woman with more than one husband? (Now THERE´S are reason for women not to go for this - don´t want to screw up the welfare checks.)

Actually, polyandry could help cancel out one of the problems of polygyny - lots of men without a wife. They can just "time-share" a wife.

Come to think of it - this ought to work for China, too.

At the extreme this is called prostitution. Maybe prostitution is called the world´s oldest profession because it arose around the same time as polygamy.

Look to the Mormon cult to push such an agenda. While they publicly profess to oppose polygamy to keep the Feds off their backs, in private they leave polygamists alone, refusing to condemn it. They also never condemn the murders of innocent people by their father, Brigham Young.

Nowhere in the Bible was polygamy ever authorized. Every man who practiced it, including David and Solomon, paid a heavy price for it. It was never authorized.

Jopseph Smith was a philandering fraud who, in order to attract more members, told hormone-filled males that under "his" religion they could have as many women as they wanted. It´s no coincidence it smacks of Islam, since Satan is the author of both false religions (cults).

God created Adam then made the woman from a rib of Adam. He could easily have taken another rib and made another mate for him, but He didn´t.

Mormonism is a hybrid religion with bits and pieces of Judaism, Hinduism, and Islam, along with a healthy dose of Masonic rituals.

Washington Post, by Marc A. Thiessen    Original Article

Senate Democrats have been desperately trying to move the national conversation away from Obamacare to just about anything else before the midterm elections — “paycheck fairness,” the minimum wage, even the Koch brothers. But President Obama’s choice of Sylvia Burwell to replace Kathleen Sebelius as secretary of Health and Human Services thrusts Obamacare right back into the national spotlight — and with it Obama’s false promise that “if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan.” The agency Burwell heads, the Office of Management and Budget, is responsible for the president’s budget.

This week, President Obama has tried to rev up his base by flogging an obviously false statistic. It hasn’t gone as well as planned, partly because the media dropped its usual obsequiousness by questioning the assumptions of the claim that women make 77 cents for each dollar earned by men for the same work. Turns out that when you control for different career choices, different hours worked, different amounts of time on the job, the supposed pay gap all but evaporates. It also turns out that the White House has a significant pay gap — they claim it’s for the same reasons

Sixty-three homes in the LeChee community of the Navajo Nation, located just south of Page, Arizona, either have already been or will soon be given electricity as part of an ongoing project to bring power to the area. According to the AP, an estimated 15,000 homes in Navajo Nation don´t have electricity.

From 1964 to 1968, close to 34,000 Americans died in South Vietnam. We will never know how many Vietnamese women, men, and children perished during those years, but the total, according to most estimates, was at least one million. Among the dead were tens of thousands of civilians—blown apart by explosives dropped from planes, burned to death by napalm, or gunned down by U.S. troops whose commanders told them that, in a village considered loyal to the Vietcong, they should “kill anything that we see and anything that moved.” Their commander-in-chief was Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Arsen Avakov wrote on his Facebook page that the "separatists" who seized the buildings in Slovyansk had opened fire on the approaching troops. This claim could not immediately be confirmed. The unrest in Slovyansk and the nearby major industrial city Donetsk were the latest shows of spiraling anger in eastern Ukraine, which has a large Russian-speaking population and was also the support base for Viktor Yanukovych, the Ukrainian president ousted in February

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion.
