This week a federal Judge has ruled that the law in Utah that prohibits polygamy is unconstitutional. He claims that it violates the 1st. Amendment’s right of freedom of religion. FoxNews
There are 38,000 fundamental Mormons who either are practicing polygamy or believe in it. Most of these live in Utah where the Mormons settled after being exiled from other states for the practice of polygamy.
It is claimed that the founder of the Mormon church, Joseph Smith had multiple wives (30). The Mormons deny this, but from all the evidence, it seems true. They claim that it was Brigham Young who first started Mormon polygamy.
The Muslims also believe in polygamy. In an article by NPR, they say that research by academics estimate that from 50,000 to 100,000 muslims live in polygamous relations.
I contend that these false religions justify many wives by coming up with so called “divine revelations” so as to justify lust and adultery. Most of us will find ways of justifying our sinful actions so that we can do it and not feel bad. But the conscience still exists.
Jesus made it very clear when He said; “Have you not read; that he who made man from the beginning, made them male and female? And he said; for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and they shall be in one flesh. Therefore now they are not two, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder.” Matthew 19:4-6.
Since the United States of America has abolished laws against sodomy and passed laws for homosexual marriages, it only follows to allow a man to marry many women.
When we stop obeying God’s rules revealed through the Bible and the 2000 year tradition, we will have to accept what ever laws judges come up with or citizens vote for.
Let us pray and obey God’s rules. We love God and we love the Holy Bible. We love tradition too. We traditional Catholics do not believe in man made laws that go against God’s loving divine laws.
