-Gallup Poll: Americans Changing Their Minds on Polygamy?

by Dr. D ~ August 1st, 2017

POLYGAMY- Yes or No?

For years the vast majority of Americans opposed polygamy. Now a recent poll claims that Americans are beginning to change their minds and that there is a new trend of support for the ancient practice, particularly among the religious ‘nones.’ From the Blaze:

According to Gallup’s survey of 1,011 adults aged 18 and older, 17 percent of Americans believe polygamy is “morally acceptable,” up by 2 percentage points compared to 2016 and more than triple the figure recorded in Gallup’s 2006 survey, when only 5 percent said it was acceptable.  …

The group most likely to say polygamy is acceptable is nonreligious Americans (32%).

Response: Fact: 83% still oppose polygamy.

However, this is a trend that we expected and looked for after the legalization of same-sex marriage. A Court in Utah has even suspended the state law and penalties for polygamy. Nevertheless, supporters of polygamy have a long way to go.

While a marriage with multiple partners is not legal in any state, look for authorities to ignore practicing polygamists. Particularly Muslim families who immigrated to the USA and were already married in Muslim countries where it continues to be legal.

There will probably be legal challenges in the future by those who want their polygamist marriages and families to be legally recognized but without the kind of numbers and support that the gay movement had it will be a hard sell.                *Top

    The next step is true polyamory. I.E., if a man can marry three wives, why can’t a woman marry three husbands? And if a polygamous relationship is legal, there is no reason why 3 men cannot marry 4 women. . . . the whole concept of “marriage” will become meaningless.

    The last obstacle to absolute unrestricted license will be prohibitions on child sex, but I predict that even those laws will eventually go away.
