A federal judge’s ruling in a Utah polygamy case has released a flood of “I told you so” reactions from traditional-marriage supporters, who have fought — often in vain — to formally define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

“Some times I hate it when what I predict comes true,” tweeted former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who has predicted polygamy as one of many logical outcomes of the legal strategies and arguments used to support same-sex marriage.

“Well, that slope didn’t take long to turn slippery,” Rod Dreher wrote in an American Conservative article titled “Utah & Polygamy: We Told You So

Quote:However, the Brown ruling is interesting because when Utah became a state in 1896, “one of the conditions Congress required in our Constitution is the forbidding of polygamy,” Mr. Hillyard said.

“Can a [federal] court now say, ‘Well, it’s part of your Constitution, and it’s a condition upon which you were adopted into statehood; now we’re going to say that’s no longer valid?’” he asked.

It will be interesting to see if they change parts of the constitution/law, such as the above, so that everyone has equal rights, as in this case...

Both sides of a fight over whether gay marriage should be recognized on Ohio death certificates despite a statewide constitutional ban were set to argue their cases in front of a federal judge in Cincinnati.

On one side are the two gay Ohio men who successfully got Judge Timothy Black to order their recently deceased spouses to be listed as married on their death certificates. They want that right afforded to all same-sex couples in Ohio who, like them, married in other states that allow gay marriage.

"This case is about love surviving death," their attorney, Al Gerhardstein, wrote in court documents. "The last record of a person's life on Earth should accurately state if the decedent is married and accurately name the surviving spouse."

The first century Church in Jerusalem, run by Peter and James, required people to first become Jewish before becoming Christian. That means there had to be polygamist there because polygamy was the standard by Jewish law.

Monogamy was a Gentile creation. Christians base monogamy as a standard on the writings of Paul who "allowed" the Gentile Church to keep their tradition.

Now as far as I am concerned, one woman is morrrrrrrre than enough. The Mormons got whacked by a bunch of fundamentalists. Even if they do believe that Lucifer is Jesus's brother. And the one's messin with marriage are Christians historically.

For most of the last 500 years, any sex in marriage, not for the purpose of making a baby was sinful and forbidden. Any position other than the missionary position, with most of your cloths on, was considered perversion.

By the standard set by the Church, we are all pervs.

That's a problem with religion. Denial. Faith has nothing to do with dogma.

You are absolutely correct! Faith is not belief. Faith is an action verb. And the risk determines the size of the faith. Hosting this forum is "faith" all things considered, prety risky too.

One wife is enough jeez....you'd have to be batshit to want more than one.

I turned myself to consider wisdom and madness and folly
The wise man’s eyes are in his head,
But the fool walks in darkness.
Yet I myself perceived
That the same event happens to them all.
