    Actually, there are multiple passages of polygamy within the Bible.

    Answer: The question of polygamy is an interesting one in that most people today view polygamy as immoral while the Bible nowhere explicitly condemns it. The first instance of polygamy/bigamy in the Bible was that of Lamech in Genesis 4:19: “Lamech married two women.” Several prominent men in the Old Testament were polygamists. Abraham, Jacob, David, Solomon, and others all had multiple wives. In 2 Samuel 12:8, God, speaking through the prophet Nathan, said that if David’s wives and concubines were not enough, He would have given David even more. Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines (essentially wives of a lower status), according to 1 Kings 11:3. What are we to do with these instances of polygamy in the Old Testament? There are three questions that need to be answered: 1) Why did God allow polygamy in the Old Testament? 2) How does God view polygamy today? 3) Why did it change?

    Should polygamy be legal then?

    Is Obama more political than Republican politicians?

    Then if someone opposed blacks getting married or interfaith weddings or interracial marriages, then it's ok for than to refuse service to than as well?

    Irrelevant.

    Even polygamous marriages are still between men and women; and never between women and women or between men and men. Can you find anything in the Bible that indicates otherwise?

    and there you have it, when proven wrong and examples prove your already proven meaningless logic wrong claim it doesn't matter AWESOME!

    1.) the bibles is MEANINGLESS to equal rights
    2.) YOU have been saying a man and woman and even when that is shown not to be true you ignore it. CLassic.

    Sorry you are against equal rights and the constitution but those things are winning and your opinions are not.

    No, no - you stated that marriage has always been between man and woman - man and women is definitely not the same thing. That makes your claim about the unchanging nature of marriage clearly wrong.

    Calling it irrelevant because it proves your claim wrong only makes you look like an even more ignorant adherent of the bible. Remember, your statement is that marriage has remained unchanged and has been defined by 1 man and 1 woman. That is proven false by the fact that polygamous marriages existed. Hell, polygamy in the Bible demonstrates that historically marriage wasn't a static institution that couldn't be changed in accordance with social norm.

    once again you prove you dont know what a strawman is and it further exposes the failure of your post and claim. This is becoming common place with your posts.
