A Mormon acquaintance once pushed Mark Twain into an argument on the issue of polygamy. After long and tedious expositions justifying the practice, the Mormon demanded that Twain cite any passage of scripture expressly forbidding polygamy.
"Nothing easier," Twain replied. "No man can serve two masters."
A child at a Christian school was studying the early days of Mormonism in his class. He wrote on his paper,"The early Mormons believed in having more than one wife. This is called polygamy. But we believe in having only one wife. This is called monotony"
Utah, where the state slogan is,'Shhh, we're sleeping', held their first pro-polygamy rally in many years. Dozens of children from polygamist families descended on Salt Lake as if it were the Village of the Damned. Children, ranging in age 10 to 20, took turns expressing their support for the plural family lifestyle. "I'm the 14th child in a large family", said Mary 16,I have seven moms who love me, and only one father who touches me."
The FBI recently captured a hard core Mormon leader in Las Vegas--Warren Jeffs, a polygamist who was arranging marriages of older men to underage girls.
You know you're doing something wrong when you're busted in VEGAS.
Also, polygamy gives whole new meaning to the FBI's list of "Most Wanted."
