INDONESIA_-_POLIGAMIA_CONTRO

Polygamy is against the law in the U.S. and Canada, and that’s a good thing: the practice devalues women, reducing them to the status of commodities, and stands as an affront to their equality with men as human beings. But now anti-polygamy laws are coming under stealthy and subtle challenge, as both governments bow before the god of multiculturalism and dare not confront the increasing number of Muslims who are practicing polygamy in both countries.

The QMI Agency reported on October 1 that “Canadian immigration officials are letting polygamous men into the country as long as they arrive with only their first wife and promise not to obtain a harem afterward.” The polygamous men are gaming the system, as immigration lawyer Richard Kurland explained: “Under Canadian law, all other marriages after the first are illegal. For this reason, the first spouse only may enter Canada on a permanent basis, which creates a monogamous marriage.”

But if a polygamist wants to bring his other wives into Canada, all he has to do is divorce the others and remarry them in turn, while promising not to practice polygamy. Kurland explains: “You can immigrate with one (wife) by divorcing the others — divorce the one in Canada, marry the second one, bring her in (and) repeat the loop, as long as you sign a paper promising that you are not living in a polygamous relationship in Canada. There is no enforcement, control, or monitoring.”

There isn’t any in the United States, either. In 2011, a Muslim named Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif was charged with plotting a jihad attack against the Military Entrance Processing Station in Seattle military recruiting station. His niqabbed wife, Binta Moussa-Davis, declared of her husband: “He just good Muslim. Perfect Muslim. He pray five times a day.” One feature of Abdul-Latif’s devout commitment to Islam was his desire to marry again – without divorcing Binta, of course.

With the advent of same sex marriage the definition of marriage became indeterminate. If any two people can marry isn't it unfair discrimination to say three can't marry? So the push will be on by Muslim and other polygamous religions with the help of the transgressive left to establish polygamy and polyandry. Not far behind will be lowering the age on consent

The problem is not polygamy nor enforcement. The problem is the twin threats of Progressivism and Islam.

Here in the US, they're going to give in not just to polygamy, but to ALL of The Shari'ah, in order to allow Muslims their "Free Exercise" under the first amendment.

And then, we're all dead.

How naïve can we be? There are already thousands of multiple wives living in the US in any location where there are large numbers of Muslims. They are not technically married to the group husband, but are presenting themselves as single mothers and are all on welfare, Food Stamps and any other federal aid they can get. All courtesy of a religion that allows them to lie in the name of Islam. I am scared to even think what the real magnitude of this is.

Like all questions regarding the marriage between two (or more) people it becomes a question of civil rights and religious rites. Under no circumstance should the government try to force a Church into accepting things and performing rites. On the other hand marriage also affects taxes and other minutia (like being able to visit loved ones in the hospital).

I see no reason why gay/lesbian couples cannot enjoy the same things that hetero couples do. I'm not saying they should call it marriage, but they should certainly get the same tax benefits and other such things as hetero couples do. In the same vein, I see no problem with a polygamous relationship...so long as it's about _love_ and not 'culture.'

Love is a beautiful thing, and I think it's shame that people feel the need to legislate and regulate it.

What needs to be reformed is the tax and inheritance laws so that single people and married people are treated the same. Then all the controversy goes away.

That assumes laws like that are the object. They are not the object but a means to a more sinister object. There are millions of unwitting, hetero, liberals who side with those who are driving the issue.

Fortunately Psychology Today in "Polyamory and Children” and completely refudiated the idea that polygamy or any other polyamory is harmful.

I completely support the right of bisexual tri-marriage and any other form of Heinleinian group marriage.

Polygamy has been around for thousands of years. It continues among certain Mormon groups.
And if a bunch of 60 year-old ex-hippies want to voluntarily do polygamy, no one is really being exploited.

Yawn.

"Voluntarily do polygamy" is different from state sanctioned polygamy.
and it isn't the 60 year olds that matter, it's the ones reproducing.
a family is the foundation of a society.
the american family is foundering, polygamy will not help the situation.

The laydowns who know what's right for American and Canada don't breed. I know them. Personally. I have unfortunately sat and talked to them.
Conservatives, traditional people breed. They're just so busy raising kids that they are quieter. But we are not to be trifled with.

Polygamy (that is, polygyny) gives many women what they want and wouldn't otherwise get -- a high-status male protector. The primary victims of polygamy are low-status men, not women.

If a person needs a "high-status male protector", then by definition they are not living in a civil society.

They are only living in a society that may appear civil.

If it is not civil it is not free.

So uhh what's all the hub bub about polygamy? I used to think it was way way out of balance. But in a world that's about to go full bore on boys marring boys and girls marring girls. Not to mention a culture that's headed toward children deciding if they want to be boys or girls or just dress like boys or girls or any # of combinations, like a girl wanting to be sex changed to a boy to be with another boy because he/she believes she's gay. To me at this point in our society polygamy seems to be a notion that's down right...quaint, old fashion.

So, Abdul-Latif posted, he want[s] to make a life from the most oppressive place on this earth ‘America.’” Well, if he finds it oppressive, nothing is preventing him from leaving. Indeed, I would urge to do so.

As far as polygamy is concerned, once you have opened the door to same-sex marriage, polygamy, as well as polyandry, is not going to be all that far behind.
