    This is not about Mitt Romney.

    We've accidentally found a show on TV called "Sister Wives" and ...

    How do you feel about polygamy?

    Include consideration of multiple husband/one wife, as well as multiple wives/one husband, consenting adults.

    Why do you feel that way?

    Poygami. What's that? Hawaiian Origami?

    Polygamy has been outlawed by the Mormon Church since 1890.

    Another Luddite Fail Thread.

    Considering that Utah is hard core Republican as a state (a very vociferous center and left exist in much smaller numbers), the only pertinent issues are whether children are being abused and if certain wives are not allowed to take their children if they wish to leave the enclaves.

    Myself? I would not want more than one wife. I much rather be the lesser fraction to one than the lesser fractions to two, several, or many.

    I think it's up to the adults - key word, 'adults' and further I would say any woman would have the right to just say no without fear of retribution.

    Not actually the point, we're talking about polygamy, and there is a show called Sister Wives, and 'the law' chose not to press charges.

    I do not see why polygamy is illegal.

    Poygamy is a kind of gamy Hawian pasty fruity substance like stuff. Like a durian, except you have to eat two or more of them.

    Well, in all fairness, Bill Paxton might disagree. :)
