Will someone from the Mormon church please explain to me WHY they are so anti gay marriage and yet condone Polygamy? Gay marriage is almost always because of love and respect between TWO people where on the other hand Polygamy is often a forced relationship with multiple women not necessary liking each other and producing many many children again in which many cases the general public is supporting because they are on welfare. CHURCH and government lets keep love together and ban, stop illegal wives. by the way I am straight I just think we need to welcome the 20th century.

I can try. The church as a whole is opposed to any marriage that is not between a man and a woman. We believe the family unit is an eternal one. The man and woman procreate, bring to earth spirits who are waiting to come. We are families there and families here. The church believes that has to be a man and woman, and that straying from that interrupts the plan our heavenly father has. I personally believe that we are to love one another as close to Christ like as we can, I'm sure that is something I need to work on. I do support gay marriage even as a member, many of us do. Some haven't openly supported it yet but I think it is coming.

As for polygamy, I don't practice it and it is not a practice of the mainstream church. It is a practice of the fundamentalist Mormons. I don't think it is what our heavenly father wants, but If someone else does I have no real opinion about it. If it is between consenting adults. Not all polygamous families are on welfare, in the more modern families the women are very much their own person.
