    Coming from Utah, I know all to well about Polygamy and Yes it is DISGUSTING. I honestly feel for the children they bring into this world, they are so isolated and treated so cruely. It's amazing to hear what their beliefs are and ways of living. It is just purely sick and wrong.

    These people believe it's ok though b/c they feel God ASKED them to do this. HOwever, it seems to be a coverup b/c if that is true, why are women starting to turn away and seek help? I definetely see how it can be viewed as a cult.



    (I really would not be a good debator, lol. I'd be screaming and getting too worked up. I'm too passionate when it comes to certain things. I yell to get my point across )

    People hide a whole multitude of actions under the guise of religion! I think when it comes to things like polygamy or ploygyny, some people are going to be for it and others will be against it. However, I dont agree with forcing the people who dont agree with it to enter into ploygamous relationships.

    And thats what a lot of the men said on the show: "it's not for everyone"...

    Which a lady then said that some women will say this (those in this type of "religion") , saying how it's so great, the man is so wonderful to their kids & how great of a husband he is, but really- the women are hiding the issues.

    I normally won't get like this when it comes to debates b/c I feel I don't have ALL the knowledge I need to form an exact opinion...but I dont know, this show was just very moving and even Nikki, whose from utah, stated this is true.

    There are also instances where the state has tried to interfere.

    So it's not all "hearsay".

    I saw a show about American polygamists a while back, and I can sincerely say that I was physically ill after watching it. It's just a sick thing, the brainwashing those men do to all those women, ugh.
    As far as poligamy in other countries, I really don't know much about them, so I can't really give an informed opinion on that.

    Organized religon is evil. <ducking>

    What is it these Polys do to their children? What is the physical and sexual abuse? Is it specific to this one "sect"?

    As any sexuality/marital preference goes (like swinging), as long as it's *two consenting adults* involved, have at it.
