Yesterday, I was watching a Television show where they were talking with some of the people involved in polygamy. Experts say that there are anywhere from 30,000 to 50,000 people living in some type of plural marriage family. Oprah did an interview with one of the families. She was talking to each of the 3 wives, and none of them acted like it was any kind of big deal. Between the 3 of them there are 23 people in the house, including the 3 wives, the 1 husband, and all the children. I know at one time, that this was something the we believed in, only because it was a commandment given to the brethren at that time.
But the things they were being said on the Oprah Winfrey Show, frustrated me so bad, that I had to blog about it and get some frustrations out.
I do have another point. “We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law” (Article of Faith 12). The fact that these individuals are still practicing plural marriage, is open rebellion. Some of these ladies that Oprah interviewed, said that they wished for it to be decriminalized. I don’t agree with them. I think that polygamy should still be outlawed. Marriage is meant for a man and a woman to unite as one.
This leads me to the next part of my post, and that is gays of homosexuals. God created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve. I don’t hate homosexuals, I just disapprove of their lifestyle. And please, do not think that I am a homophobic person. I think that people are able to live whatever lifestyle they want to live. However, I think that legalizing same-sex marriage, is a load of crap. Recently, California legalized same-sex marriage, so now we will have all the gays going off to California to get married. But as far as I understand, the other states do not recognize those marriages as legal.
