You say just because we legalize it does not mean that we would do it. So that makes it ok for society?
No, it just makes it ok for those that want to do it.
I wouldn't go out and marry many times just because the law allows me to, would you?
And the truth is...if something is legalized it becomes moral.
Really? The death penalty is legal in some states and yet a lot of people would argue that the practice is still immoral.
Abortion was illegal, immoral at one time...prior to 1973.
The only fact in that sentence was that abortion was illegal. You can't describe it as universally immoral because you would have to speak on behalf of every living being at the time, and presume that you know what their feelings where on the matter.
Now although it is still stigmatized for all the right reasons...it is ok to do and we do it well in the US.
Well it's not ok for everybody, is it?
You don't see every pregnant woman in the country line up to have an abortion just because it's legal, do you?
We kill more unborn children than any other country in the world. So much for the abortion law.
No one is killing "children". Abortions don't kill living "children". But that's another debate.
And because its legal doesnt mean that everyone will do it.......BUT statistics show that the majority of women get them.
Show me. Show me the statistics.
Furthermore, what does abortion got to do with a few people agreeing to live together and love each other?
So what makes you so sure after group marriage was legalized that the majority one day wouldnt do it ? You don't.
I don't, no. But then again I don't care if they do. So what if they do?
If the majority decides to do it, then all that proves is that all this time we were suppressing the majority into not doing it. Just so that people like you, who are uncomfortable with the idea, can live in a world where everybody else abides to their ideals and lifestyle. Even if they are forced to do so.
You talk about feelings like they are nothing, not special, just ordinary.
What? Where did I say that?
It's not about love really, its just sexual.
Well you don't know that, do you?
We're not talking about fuck-buddies here. We're talking about people who are in love and have a lot in common, and want to share their whole lives together.
One of the most dangerous and damaging emotions that can rip and tear through a family is that of jealousy. And do you think that there is any jealousy in polygamist marriages and relationships?
If you are the jealous kind, then clearly polygamy is not your thing. So that point is void, because the people that would be willing to partake in a polygamous arrangement are clearly not the jealous kind.
Do you think children would or could get hurt in relationships where daddy cant keep it in his pants and has relationships with all sorts of different women?
Well, children are already getting hurt in relationships where daddy can't keep it in his pants and has relationships with all sorts of different women SECRETLY.
Those are the truly hurtful relationships because when the truth comes out (it always does) both children and spouses feel betrayed and everything falls apart.
But in a polygamous relationship, daddy doesn't fuck around with unknown women. No one feels betrayed because no one is lied to.
And what happens if you bring a STD home? Or if you got them pregnant?
Well you're not bringing STDs home because you are not having sex outside the home.
And if you got them pregnant, then they would be having children... Like any family.
Rape is not a recent concept either....so whats your point about polygamy? Murder was around too......is that good and beneficial to society?
Rape and murder are violent actions that happen without the consent of the victim.
There are no victims in polygamy, and the participating adults do it with their consent.
