Undecided but open to either side.
I couldn't care less either way.
I would rather polygamy be legally recognized and not socially accepted than for it to be socially accepted and not legally recognized, but that's just me.
That's why we ought to leave it to the states to decide for themselves. That's the Whig Party position.
I don't think polygamy should be promoted, highlighted, or made out to be just some equally understandable and perfectly normal alternative family unit. At the same time, I don't think we should be kicking down doors and taking children into protective custody for no other reason than the fact they have 3 mommies or daddies.
its kind of the same way, in part, I view gay coupling. I don't think we should be telling kids its bad, its immoral, its wrong, but we also shouldn't be teaching young kids that its perfectly normal, anyone could feel that way, its no different than a guy and girl together because it frankly IS a minority thing and as such you're far more likely to confuse more kids by doing that then enlighten them.
Social Stigma, to a point, is always going to be there for things that are abnormal and I think polygamoy in this country will almost always be considered abnormal. I just wouldn't want to see laws or actions taken equating abnormal to wrong. That doesn't mean I want to see abnormal to equal correct.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Yeah, I got you. "It's not okay, but it's no excuse to go plyg-bashing." That's fair.Originally Posted by Zyphlin
