An Excellent Investigation of Polygamy

Blaine Robinson has written a detailed report on the history, religion, and politics of polygamy. You can read it at http://www.blainerobison.com/concerns/polygamy.htm.

Blaine drills down on Jewish, biblical, Catholic, Protestant, American and world polygamy. His section on answering the usual objections to polygamy (It's illegal, it's harmful, it's immoral) is an especially good read.

Here's Blaine's opening paragraph:

Polygamy has become a hot topic in America due to the various lawsuits challenging state constitutional bans on the practice and the growing numbers of polygamous families in the United States. Some Christian conservatives have joined with secularists to attack polygamy as an aberrant and immoral behavior, lumping polygamists in with homosexuals. This article represents my own investigation of polygamy in its historical, biblical, and contemporary context to help Christians better understand the issue.

An excellent work, but believers who don't really know what God's word has to say, wither by consent or ignorance, will probably not embrace the truth of scriptures, not being good Berians. Therefore that generation will probably have to pass, before religious people will fully embrace God's word.

I support and believe in the polygamy lifestyle. I see so many dead beat dads who never have a thing to do with their children and yet we are going to proscecute men who live this lifestyle? Absolutely unbelievable! I think our society is focusing on the wrong things. Angela

Polygamy practice is proven to be detrimental for the children. Studies show that children from polygamous relationship have tendency in exhibiting sexual behavior, communication difficulties, conduct disorders and aggression.
