HOORAY FOR RUSSIA. NOW, GO LIVE THERE GAYS.
By MANSUR MIROVALEV — Associated Press
MOSCOW — Kissing his boyfriend during a protest in front of Russia's parliament earned Pavel Samburov 30 hours of detention and the equivalent of a $16 fine on a charge of "hooliganism." But if a bill that comes up for a first vote later this month becomes law, such a public kiss could be defined as illegal "homosexual propaganda" and bring a fine of up to $16,000.
The legislation being pushed by the Kremlin and the Russian Orthodox Church would make it illegal nationwide to provide minors with information that is defined as "propaganda of sodomy, lesbianism, bisexuality and transgenderism." It includes a ban on holding public events that promote gay rights. St. Petersburg and a number of other Russian cities already have similar laws on their books.

WND EXCLUSIVE
LOVE, AMERICAN STYLE: POLYGAMY GETS SIZZLE
'We should strive to have it legalized'

Is polygamy becoming the new “gay” movement in America?

With television shows such as HBO’s “Big Love” and TLC’s “Sister Wives,” polygamy is the once-taboo lifestyle that appears to be gaining wider acceptance – especially on the heels of homosexual marriage victories across the nation.

Just this weekend, the website Pro-Polygamy.com declared Aug. 19 the 12th annual Polygamy Day. According to the site, since it began,“the annual celebration grew into a widespread and religiously-neutral individual celebration around the country among all forms of consenting-adult pro-polygamists.”

Historically, polygamy has had little support in the U.S. since the Republican Party in 1854 declared it, along with slavery, one of the “twin relics of barbarism,” and Congress banned it in 1862.

However, recent decisions of activist judges that thrust homosexual marriage on the American public are now being used, chapter and verse, to argue for legalization of polygamy.

While spouse collecting is still illegal in the United States, polygamy is apparently thriving – and not where most Americans might expect.

Polygamists in America

The mainstream media tend to focus on polygamists who belong to the Fundamentalist Church of the Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Utah, Arizona,Texas and Colorado.

Polygamy made national headlines in two high-profile cases in recent years: In 2007, FLDS leader Warren Jeffs was convicted of sex crimes charges.(Jeffs is estimated to have more than 50 wives and is reportedly issuing edicts from his prison cell.) And in 2008, authorities raided a Texas FLDS compound called the YFZ Ranch, and found six men guilty of child sexual assault.

Various estimates made through the years put the number of FLDS members between 15,000 and 60,000.

But Muslim men in America are marrying multiple wives as well.

In fact, a 2008 NPR report estimated between 50,000 and 100,000 Muslims in the U.S. live in polygamous families.

A search of a popular Muslim “singles” dating site revealed more than 1,000 results for married Muslim men – located in the United States – who are openly seeking additional wives.

For the parameters of WND’s search, only married Muslim men who live in the U.S. and are interested in taking another wife were selected.

The search returned more than 1,000 results – so many, the site recommending refining criteria because there were too many matches.

WND found active profiles for married Muslim men seeking additional wives in every U.S. state (and Washington, D.C.)– except Alaska.

Most of the men were in New York, New Jersey, California, Virginia, Texas, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Maryland.

The prophet Muhammad is said to have had dozens of wives.

Since polygamy is against the law in the U.S., NPR explains how Muslims still manage to have multiple spouses.

“Here’s how a man gets around the laws: He marries one woman under civil law, and then marries one, two or three others in religious ceremonies that are not recognized by the state. In other cases, men marry women in both America and abroad.

“Many women keep quiet for fear of retribution or deportation.”

New Jersey family law attorney Abed Awad told NPR many Muslim men see polygamous marriages as an opportunity to have many children, which is seen as a blessing in Islam.

Because the religion only allows men to have sex in a marital relationship, marrying multiple wives can be a way to legitimize sex with several partners. In some cases, men seek wives for temporary marriages called Mut’ah marriages or “pleasure marriages,” that can last for years – or merely hours.(Some imams condemn the practice of temporary marriages.)

“What is the problem? If he is not happy with the first marriage, why he stay all the life like this?” asked Mona, a Palestinian woman with six children who divorced and remarried into a polygamous relationship in Patterson, N.J.“You know, my religion is good because it gives man and woman another chance to be happy.”

It would be interesting, considering the Muslim support for polygamy, to see if SSMers opposition to Islamic poly is the same as it is for Christian poly marriage.

SSMers....thoughts?

I never read cut and paste spam...I figure if someone has a thought they will write their own words.

As for World Nut Daily - they believe and promote whacked out crap on such a level that anyone who references them as a "source" immediately becomes laughable.
