Throbbing Artery...hmmmmm...

I am trying my best to keep my mind out of the gutter on this one.

What a freak. A religious cult. Reminds me of Waco. This man is worth millions because of the idiots who would follow his cult.

I don't mind getting in the gutter. I would have to say if he does have 40 wives and over a hundred children as reported, it is some other body part that has been throbbing.

I kid you not, I am NOT attempting to be snarky but I do have a SINCERE question.
If ALL persons involved in the marriage/marriages are ADULTS/LEGAL age of consent, are aware of and agree to the conditions and terms of the marriage WHY is it the governments place to dictate who can marry whom and to how many people someone can concurrently be married?

I find the government determining who can marry whom and how many people is no different from the laws prohibiting racial intermarriage/miscegenation which were finally declared unconstitutional in 1967, by the United States Supreme Court. Incidentally, laws prohibiting racial intermarriage were the longest-lasting form of legal racial discrimination in the United States.

Mz - My guess is that men would start marrying multiple women without the other wife's knowledge then it would become a big problem.

Mz, read the whole story on this guy and then maybe you won't snark. Would you let him arrange a marriage for your 16 year old daughter to an older man who already has several wives? If so, I bet your daughter wants to run away from home.

mzchief said...

AHEM!

Please note that I indicated that ALL parties to the marriage would KNOW and CONSENT to the conditions of the marriage and that ALL parties to the marriage would be ADULTS!

NO ONE should be permitted to arrange a marriage for a 16 year old juvenile or an ADULT unless the ADULT wishes to have THEIR marriage arranged.

AHEM, Mz, as I mentioned earlier, read the whole story on this guy.

Mz, Was that your husband in the neck brace they were loading into the ambulance yesterday?

To anonyNOTHING 5:01/5:02...
I have remained well informed of the ENTIRE Warren Jeffs situation beginning sometime in 2000 when the first whispered allegations of Jeffs' sexual acts with a child and minors were brought to the attention of Federal and State law enforcement agencies.
My question regarding the appropriateness of the government dictating the parameters of marriage between ADULTS should NOT in anyway have been construed to condone or include the CRIMINAL acts against children and minors for which Jeffs will be charged.

Since reading comprehension clearly is NOT your strong suit there really is NO need for you to further concern yourself with responding to MY question.
However, thank you for your interest.

Oh, and of course the bloke being loaded into the ambulance could NOT have been my husband because I am NOT your sister-in-law! *;)

Enough wrestling in the mud with the pigs for me.

If, as mzchief stated, all parties are consenting adults, it is none of the government’s business!

I understand Mzchief's point but where I might differ on opinion is when and if I find out that the subsequent wives and children are using Medicaid to fund their healthcare since they cannot be legally married. In the ariticles I have read on polygamy, most of the second, third, fourth, etc. wives are on Medicaid and I DO NOT want my taxes going towards that way of life.
