Ever since I began researching the topic of polygamy, I have been bothered by the idea that this practice is justifiably criminalized because it is associated with the ills of child exploitation, abuse of women and children, etc.

But, within the criminal code, we have clear and specific provisions to target these offences, which are clearly harmful, and which any reasonable person considers intolerable and deserving of criminal sanction. So why does the law banning polygamy remain, a provision which, by the way, is almost never invoked and when it has been used, has led to few convictions that carried relatively minimal sentences?

If someone commits a crime, prosecute the hell out of them NO MATTER THE TYPE OF MARRIAGE THEY CHOOSE.

That's one of his bigoted reasons for denying equality.

That polygamists are child abusers, welfare cheats and all around scum bags.

What's yours?

You lie so casually. Need I re-post some of your ignorant hate?

Or perhaps I cannot read as you insist. Explain it very slowly for me. Do you support legalizing polygamy for religious freedom and why or why not?

It should be held with the same level of respect as every other religion should be.

So now you are saying that all religions are valid? Mormons? Baptists? Holy rollers? And you give them all respect?

That's not what you've said in the past.

What you meant was all religions including FSM are invalid, you're just too stupid to know what you meant! Glad I could help!

I agree

We as a nation donít generally prosecute people for polygamy, even when they know it is taking place.

The problem is one of image, you need more positive role models championing it.

AS valid

donít change the words, and donít leave words out.

If you are going to comment on what I say, then donít change what I said.

They deserve equal respect, I didnít say a lot of respect, I didnít say no respect, I said equal respect.

You said it had the same validity as any other religion. Which is exactly what I said. If you're too stupid to realize that, that's funny!

So now you're saying you give polygamous religions the same respect as any other? Need I re-post your many contradictory posts?

So what? I'm old enough to remember when it was actually against the law to be a homosexual. Talk about bad image! But they overcame.

I remember most people like you said they needed a more positive image too. And look at them now. Poly will have it's day in court despite you.
