    Over dinner tonight the question came up why is polygamy wrong, why does the state interfere? Why do we consider it taboo? As a liberal I have a hard time with the state telling me how to live my life. I can understand taxes or laws that prevent harm but polygamy? Thoughts?

    Because Christians are afraid of God.

    That bastard.

    Try again. I was spot on the first time.

    Now, God being a prick has nothing to do with all the poor souls who feel compelled to try to make him happy. I know plenny of nice Christian folks.

    But the rules? God? Asshole.

    And please- in a theology premised on eternal damnation for disobedience, don't try to disown the fear factor. It's disingenuous in the extreme.

    Claiming Christians are afraid of God is bigoted. Thought you might catch the connection but--no luck.

    You know that the definition of bigamy is having one wife too many?

    Some of us think that's the definition of matrimony, too.

    Polyamy?

    Why does every polygamist sect seem, upon further investigation, to be nothing more than a pederast ring, run by men, to take advantage of young teen-age girls via mind control and high fencing?

    I can't say why polygamy is wrong. But I can tell you that the polygamists always seem to be.

    And why do they always seem to pretend that GOD told them fucking children and keeping their families/concubine imprisioned was okay?

    That annoys me, too. Leave God out of your sordid perversions.

    Theoretically, I can't see much of an argument against multiple marriange arrangements...between consenting adults.


    This latest batch that made the news seem to be monsters who kept ~ and worse much worse ~ brainwashed children to be their sex slaves.

    They are a threat to women and and affront to men.

    Maybe that's why most people aren't real supportive of polygamists.

    They're creeps.

    It's not bigoted at all. "God Fearing" Christians, is quite a common term of endearment.

    Plus, you ever read the Bible?

    Nuff said.

    "God fearing" Christian is simply one old cliched way of describing certain TYPES of Christians. Yes I've read the Bible. Term of endearment.:lol:
