Christian Polygamy and Christian Nudity

What do Christian polygamy and Christian nudity have in common? Plenty!

  • Both are illegal in many places -- nudity at least is legal on private property.
  • Both are mocked and despised by most conservative Christians.
  • Both claim they support positive family values.
  • Both claim they are supported by scripture.
  • Both offer selective dating services.
  • Both are misunderstood.
You'd think that with this much in common, polygamists and nudists would get along. Apparently not so. We've heard that some Christian polygamists regard nudity as pornographic, and that some Christian nudists regard polygamy as a perversion.

As a reader of our blog, you're probably familiar with the arguments promoting Christian polygamy. For arguments promoting Christian nudity, we'd recommend these links --

From sources like these, you can learn, for example, that "In the early centuries following the New Testament period [...] baptism was performed in the nude." -- Laudemont Ministries

Polygamy and nudity both play an important role in our family life. We regard both as positive family values that remind us of who we are and what our place is in the natural world.

Great post, I responded to it on my blog. I think we share a similar perspective on these things.

Of course it was in the nude because it was the Jewish Custom of immersion in a Mikvah and jews do this the same way today.

But it was done without mixed company ina modest way as an act of piety for cleansing it is also part of the act of repentance to god.

Oh please, nudity and polygamy have nothing to do with each other. If you want to be naked, feel free...eventually someone will ask you to cover up, please...

Wife M. and i love to go camping at nude resorts, and have no problem, but Wife J. will not, even though she walks around her house in the buff. J.tells me if i win the lotto and buy a tract of land that's remote, she might agree to find out the joys of nudity.
