Moral Acceptance of Polygamy at Record High — But Why?

Polygamy, a practice that President James Garfield once said “offends the moral sense,” is now seen by 17% of Americans as “morally acceptable,” up from 14% in 2016 and the highest rate on record dating back to 2003.

    Does that mean that when you include all the illegals that 17% of America is now Muslim?

      Probably allows for a small contingent of Mormons, refered to by mainstream Mormons as ‘Poligs’

    islam will cause Justin to legalize it as well as some pedophilia like Child-brides because Diversity is our strength.
    And damn it ….if a few rapes help to get him elected in 2019 it’s all part of tolerance as a Feminist.

      Makes sense. But I think Justin is probably more into the little boyz.

    Why? morally bankrupt leftist and pisslam, that’s why.

    Not just muslim polygamy – there is a lefty movement towards “polyamory” where the premise is “I have too much love to give to just one person” which really means “I get to f**k lots of people, but I have my primary love and my secondary love.” My hubby and I had online aquaintances come “out” as “polyamory” and my comment to my hubby was “I give them a year.” I was wrong – they announced their divorce also via facebook less than six months later.

      Funny enough the couple of couples I he encountered who are into that sort of thing also ended up divorcing. I find it’s usually the women who wants to get some on the side and this is her way of justifying it and then later when the husband also starts his side relationships it pisses her off and the marriage ends.

      The flip side of course it that if you have multiple wives, you’ll also have multiple mothers in law. Think about that Romeo.

  • Dana Garcia

    People don’t think about polygamy being the norm in Islam nations but not polyandry, — an unequal, sexist situation — and don’t understand that multiple wives tend to be treated worse than one. Plus, some of the wives are children, with the upshot being that polygamy is the source of much abuse.

    Interestingly, Utah statehood was put off for decades by the federal government until it renounced polygamy.

    Two thoughts: millennials are dumber than rocks.

    Good old fashioned sneaking around is much more fun than the caring, sharing, bs of polyamory.

    Did I mention that millennials are dumber than rocks.

      Make that sedimentary rocks because they just sort of sit there and accumulate dirt.

    I am not surprised since the cultural marxists have been chipping away at the traditional family for years and with success. First was giving shacking-up the same status as legally married and from there it moved on to SSM with some demanding even more bizarre combinations.

      The solid, time-honored family unit: husband, wife, children (and sometimes, as was historically the case in China, grand-parents) has worked consistently well and been foundational for our societies for however long. It’s not clear to me that anything – especially what it is being replaced with – will work better. Or at all.

      • Alain

        You are right, but replacing it with something that will wwork better has never been the objective. The objective is simply to destroy the traditional family, because being the corner stone of Western civilisation, makes it easier to destroy the whole civilisation.

    It is in the government and taxpayers interest (in a normal sane nation) to ensure that polygamy is illegal. Not so much it causes the erosion of the traditional family which it does nor does the government care based on morality reasons but for the fact that the overwhelming polygamist relationships have the wives receiving WELFARE benefits since the husband declares them as depends through tax loopholes. That is right polygamy works just like child benefits. The more wives or children you have the more money you receive from the government making this a welfare scam. Polygamy should never be made legal otherwise since it is a financial drain to society.

    The upward trend in acceptance of polygamy is noticeable after 2009.
    Now what happened then? Oh yeah – Obama’s presidency.

    ‘Polyamorous’ = One’s a whore and the other has no spine

    • Alain

      Polyamorous has also been used to describe several other types of arrangements they want qualified as marriage.
