    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

It isn't hurting me if Abdullah wants to have 2, 3, 4 wives, whatever.
    You're forgetting that the principal purpose of government is to protect us from each other. Polygamy's exploitive nature, its commodification and subjugation of women, its impoverishment of women and children and it creation of a class of frustrated, destructive men all undermine the social order. We permit it at our peril.

    This is one of the arguments against gay marriage. Who makes the sammiches and fetches the beer? How is that decision arrived at? The potential for domestic violence is huge.

    Sorry, but under Obamacare, you lose that right, too.

    well its good that if 5 wives live in the same place that they will sync their monthly friend. Could you imagine if they had it on separate weeks?

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    That's why the polygamist ancient jews of Genesis had the whole "red tent" thing.
