Push it Further, Will Ya?

Oh. My. Gosh.

Things are coming full circle. First there is polygamy. We get rid of polygamy. Then people decide that gay marriage should be legalized. Next, people decide that polygamy should again be legalized also.

There is just no rest for the weary.

What is happening to society? What is happening to marriage between ONE man and ONE woman? What’s happening to fidelity? And loyalty? And partnership?

This story is weird. It’s about these polygamist sisters who apparently have a reality tv show on TLC called “Sister Wives.” (I’ll watch an episode and do a follow-up blog for y’all.) (TLC will put just about anybody on tv won’t they? Jon and Kate plus 8. 19 Children and Counting. Sister Wives. Good grief.)

I’ve said this before, I know. And I don’t want to get too monotonous here. But really people? What really is happening to a marriage between one man and one woman? It’s being thrown out the window, that’s what.

Does anybody else have an issue with sisters marrying the same guy? I mean, I love my sisters and all, but living with them for this long has been tough enough! I don’t want to have the same husband or half-children with them. That’s just weird. And I think I would get jealous.

Most normal women out there need a one woman man. And I do believe that most men need a one man woman. It’s just natural. It’s governed by the universe.

Don’t you be eyeing my husband, sister. Yeah. If we married the same guy, we’d end up literally killing each other. No exaggerations.

WEIRD. GROSS. DISGUSTING. WEIRD.

Messed up.

I like the first paragraph of the article. The little summary section. “He says he will simply argue that the State should not interfere with the private and consensual sexual behavior of the polygamists and must respect their religious beliefs.”

Well, they’re in Utah, so if they’re probably Christians, if not Mormons. I’m pretty sure that the Mormons threw the idea of polygamy out a few decades ago. And all the rest of the Christian denominations don’t believe in polygamy (unless it’s some crazy one I am unaware of.)

And sure. In the old testament men did have multiple wives. But in the coming of Jesus, He preached a different story. He gave us what marriage REALLY was. What marriage was supposed to be. He gave us rules and teachings. Polygamy was not in those teachings. I’m baffled on what these “religious beliefs” really are… I’d love to know. Some demented, twisted definition of Christianity probably…

Oh, well. Let me know what you think! I’d love some feedback on the “Sister Wives.” Has anyone seen the show?
