UTAH TO LEGALIZE POLYGAMY

SALT LAKE CITY – Utah has decided to legalize polygamy for all its citizens.
Utah lawmakers have decided to move forward with a bill that would legalize polygamy.
Current Utah Law (Article 3) states that ”polygamous or plural marriages are forever prohibited.”  But according to Article 3, you can hold whatever religious beliefs you want.  Utah will never prosecute you for your religious beliefs. However being a polygamist and acting upon your beliefs is completely out of the question.
That’s been the conundrum for Utah lawmakers… until now.  “We have to change the laws to match the beliefs of our citizens and a man having more than one wife, just makes sense!”, said Utah Speaker of the house, Blake Smith (D).
Over the years, authorities have looked the other way with regard to polygamous behavior and have instead focused on any abuse of children, kidnapping or any other domestic abuse.
Under current Utah Law bigamy is a felony of the third degree.

The news of the new Utah bill coincides with TLC airing its new reality show, Sister Wives, about a man with three wives – and soon a fourth – and his 12 kids.. The man, Kody Brown.  says, “polygamy is just another word for paradise.”
The husband is happy. The wives are happy. The children are polite and helpful.   “It’s perfect, it’s heaven,” said Brown.  “Variety is the spice of life and… I am enjoying my life.”
Advertising salesman Brown lives somewhere in Utah with Meri, his wife of 20 years, Janelle, his wife of 17 years, and Christine, his wife of 16 years. “I like marriage, and I’m a repeat offender,” he says.
He identifies himself as Mormon, though he is not a member of the mainstream faith that has banned “the lifestyle,” he notes.  “The lifestyle.” You’ll hear that expression tossed around a lot in the one-hour premiere.
The wives are the biggest advocates, arguing it guarantees security to their children. If one of them were to die, the other wives would step in to raise the kids. The extended clan lives in a large house that is subdivided into separate but adjoining apartments for each of the wives and their children.
“Look, it’s better for women to share one stable, solid, good man than to be with a no-good man who can’t even support himself.   It’s the way the world is supposed to work.  Women want men with money, power and status and men want variety and beauty.  Polygamy is the natural way for human beings to mate, have a family,” said Monica Creighton, another polygamist in Utah.
Utah lawmakers hope to have the bill ready to be signed by Governor Gary R. Herbert by December.  They expect a large influx of new residents.

  1. Try to do a little research. The idea that Utah would have a democrat majority in the state house is more far-fetched than them legalizing polygamy.

  2. Do some research on the Bible before you go teaching falseness, the scripture, originally in Greek, was translated wrong, as the word was, mia, meaning first. a man of one wife is wrong, it's suppose to be, a man of a first wife. Seriously, if you claim the Bible, at least me educated enough to speak the truth, and not spread religious lies.

    • That is soo true, good point… More people need to know this fact and their holy cow will pop. Mia is FIRST, that means that the religious leader they talk about must be a married man. A single man doesn't have the experience to hold the office. He must KNOW marriage and it's complexities so he can give REAL advice to others. Besides, we believers are supposed to be the bride of Christ spiritually, many of us make us this body of bride and ONE spiritual husband. That is the type of family He made as an example for us.

  3. If Polygamy is legalized in Utah there is a question of religion , freedom of expression and equal rights. They would have to allow both sexes to have unlimited husbands and wives. Maybe even multiple couple marriages. There is no limit to the possibilities. My only concern is the children.
