Are you kidding? So people appear normal on the outside to hide whats in the inside and that regarded as persecution. So the name sleeping with his daughter appears normal and he regards it as his right t have sex with her.. and thats persecution.
Remember it s all about the individuals perception. If enough people rallied agianst incest, eventually it would become legal.
We are a sick species.

Yes. Deny ignorance.
Having been Mormon - - - I've experienced a lot and I do mean a lot - - of ignorance about Mormons.
People really do need to educate themselves before mouthing off.

I am sure you will find a way to discredit the sources. I am not interested. You have stated that you don't believe in statistics due to motive of said study, who paid for it and all that. I tried to find reasonably credible sources for you, not mormonhaters.com or crazyldsers.org or anything like that. I don't want to argue about the credibility of the faith. I have my opinion and you have yours. Mormons won't ever accept polygamy as legal. At least the "official" ones we speak of.

I grew up in a fairly liberal ward in the church, where questions were met with intellectual conversation rather than quick snaps of "that's not what the prophet says!".

You're so far off the mark, that it's not worth a full reply, LOL!
I'll give you this much: I never mentioned IQ... you did.

You sound more like a libertarian. Just saying
OT: I don't care, whatever 6-8 consenting adults do in the privacy of their bedroom... Wait a minuet I already gave this speech in a thread about gay marriage. Anyways, if they love each other or whatever and want to say their married, then who cares?
Hey has anyone seen that movie(I think its a movie) called paint my wagon? Where the two guys marry one girl? Now that was progressive.
According to Utah’s bigamy statute, “A person is guilty of bigamy when, knowing he has a husband or wife, the person purports to marry another person or cohabits with another person.” Utah Code Ann. § 76-7-101(1) (2003). The law, therefore, applies not just to individuals who have obtained multiple marriage licenses, but also to those who are legally married to only one person, while also engaging in other marriage-like relationships that are not recognized by the state.

'Sister Wives': Polygamy law challenge called demand for equality
(visit the link for the full news article)
Utah’s complicated history with polygamy will start a new chapter Wednesday when an attorney for a reality-show family files a lawsuit that could send the state’s ban on plural marriage to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Nationally-known constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley said the lawsuit to be filed in U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City will not call for plural marriages to be recognized by the state. Instead, it asks for polygamy between consenting adults like his clients, former Utahn Kody Brown and his wives, to no longer be considered a crime.
