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.

Perhaps I need to explain this to you clowns in simpler terms. It means we have perfectly good laws against the crimes you fear are associated with polygamy. Therefore why is polygamy illegal?

You have to try and understand, when I talk of marriage equality, it is understood I am talking about COMMITTED CONSENSUAL ADULTS.
In every case of opposite sex, same sex, incest and poly marriage. Get it? Got it? Good!
and the decline of the influence of religion in America that made it possible.

More people in traditional MARRIAGES are child molesters and welfare cheats than people in poly MARRIAGES by a factor of about 15,500,000 to 1.

Watch, you'll whine about the mention of poly, but not traditional marriage! Priceless.

Look up the existing laws. One more time, I nor Big D care if you want five wives, hire a lawyer and go for it. Are we clear?

No one is arguing that fact dummy. I cant help pervert heterosexuals. Gawddd you are stoopid. We told you its the public's perception of Poly marriage. Just like the public's perception of same sex marriage. Its up to you and those who support poly marriage to change it.

Yes you are trying to tell me it has an image problem. It does. But what I object to is how much of an image problem you think it has and the fact that you insist this image problem is justified. That's ignorance and bigotry plain and simple.

You can discuss Mars without going there, you can discuss equality without hiring a lawyer. This is a discussion forum jackass. DISCUSSION.

Talk about "deflection".

How many times do I have to tell you dummy, I don't want five wives. I want to discuss marriage equality.

You are (supposed to be) discussing gay marriage, do you want to marry a man? If not stop discussing it!

See how silly you are?

More gay men molest children than men in poly marriages. Should we outlaw gay marriage?

If I where gay, then I would want the choice to marry.
