Bigamy is illegal in the U.S.


See? This is the difference. Being gay isn't illegal. This will go nowhere.


Oh, I think you are sooooo wrong.

It will happen now, because they can now claim discrimination against polygamists, a sexual orientation, bisexuality and why can't a bisexual marry both a man and a woman if they want to.

That's a good point grandma.

Interesting question in this context ... in the case of a single man and multiple women (ala FLDS) ... should the women now marry each other asl well ... just to insure a true plural marriage?

So will it now be Politically Incorrect to say "Sloppy Seconds"?

Can't blame me for being a prepper right?

They can claim whatever they want but it won't go anywhere. This isn't about love, rights, equality. It's about the law and it stipulates that a marriage is between 2 consenting people. A contract. They can live a polygamist lifestyle but will not be allowed to marry. This is ridiculous fear mongering.

Well... why can't a marriage be more than two people?

LDS banned the practice of polygamy in 1890. Significantly less than half of Mormons practiced it.

And, in a suit against the U.S., SCOTUS ruled that while the law may not interfere with one's beliefs and opinions, the law may interfere with some practices.

So...human sacrifice probably isn't going to fly.


I was LDS for about 5 years. I'm aware of the history.

They were forced to give it up to join the states.

I've yet to see a good argument as to why a person can't marry more than one person.


Good argument: why would anybody do that to themselves?

Or did you mean a good legal argument?

Good question. I would say the answer might be Dominionist Christianity.

Hidden behind a judges robe.

Yes, I agree. Reading the arguments is kinda scary.



Why pick on Christians
let's blame the Jews while we are at it!
After all "they" wrote half the Bible that the Christians use, didn't they?


Why can't a bisexual marry one person of each sex, isn't that discrimination based on sexual orientation and not allowing them to fully express their love for both sexes? If you are opposed, then you are a bigot and against love and against people having the freedom to choose who they love and marry.

Can you imagine being married to two people? Imagine being as close as you are right now with your spouse with a second person? Feel that one for a minute?


Sounds euphoric, doesn't it.


I'm with Kali, no good argument against this imo.

Let's see if that changes as the thread develops.

Oink Oink!

Fry me if you will! I am sure "sloppy seconds" isn't strictly a heterosexual thing?

BTW? Ever hear of comedy?

If polygamy was legal they could choose either way.

Well...the church leader banned it first. Then the U.S. said they had to ban it in the state constitution, which they did. Then Utah became a state.

But, either way, the SCOTUS ruling is what it is.

Because Bisexual doesn't mean you have to have both partners... it means you are attracted to both sexes
