This Polygamy Issue is really getting me fired up!!

Real Estate Agent with Exit Realty Properties

I don't know if you all realise this but polygamy is as old as history itself. I must admit that the one issue currently causing the stir in America really beats all the odds. I have never seen it in this form. I think this has gone beyond anyting anyone has ever seen.

Someone has taken advantage of religion to commit all sorts of atrocities on children and women. As these women and children are paraded in front of the cameras, I am yet to see a male figure.

Where are the so-called fathers? Men?Brothers? Uncles? Husbands? In normal polygamous homes, you see the men and not much of the women but it seems in times of trouble, these men are being cowards.

Why isn't anyone asking for the men to show up? Is this what Warren Jeff's teaching was about? In times of peace, we dominate but in times of trouble, the women must fight.

This is just giving me a headache. How about you?

I'm with you also -- giving us a headache for sure. And seemingly even sadder is they don't even seem to understand what has happened to them really.

I have to say that I think this situation is horrible, and they should get the book thrown at them for child marriage, rape, etc....

However, on the flip side, I think it's odd that our society ABHORS all polygamy, and yet E! has "The Girls Next Door" show that GLAMORIZES Hugh Hefners relationship with 3 YOUNG women that he is old enough to be their Grandfather.  He is not married to any of these 3 girls.

I think it's a double standard, and that if consenting adults want to live that way, it should be their choice.
