Polygamy in America? Sure, why not?

Just when our proud plunge into cultural oblivion didn’t seem able to get any more pathetic, it has. And even though we had to see this particular turn for the ridiculous coming from many miles away, it still stings now that it’s finally arrived, kind of like last week’s Supreme Court decision. (See: “Supreme Court” Votes for Wrath of God Upon America.) It also makes one wonder how much longer this slow motion train wreck known as America will be allowed to go on.

At any rate, in what may to qualify as the least surprising bit of still-terrible news this week for the disintegrating culture of ‘Merica, a polygamous trio from Montana has quite credibly applied for a marriage license:

A Montana man said Wednesday that he was inspired by last week’s U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage to apply for a marriage license so that he can legally wed his second wife.

Nathan Collier and his wives Victoria and Christine applied at the Yellowstone County Courthouse in Billings on Tuesday in an attempt to legitimize their polygamous marriage. Montana, like all 50 states, outlaws bigamy — holding multiple marriage licenses — but Collier said he plans to sue if the application is denied.

“It’s about marriage equality,” Collier told The Associated Press Wednesday. “You can’t have this without polygamy.”

And you know what?

He’s absolutely right.

There is apparently no consistent basis upon which Nathan, Victoria and Christine can be denied a marriage license.

They’re “in love” or something, right?

That settles it.

And if they want to add another partner or two or ten or twenty later on down the road, more power to ’em, right?

I mean, this is the “land of the free”, isn’t it?

It sure is.

We now live in a land where everything from freedom, liberty, law and economics to family, marriage and even gender are all open to constant revision and redefinition.

And why?

Because the unchanging standard upon which all true understanding of these things is based – the Nature of God as revealed in His Word – has been cast aside.

In a land that views the freedom to openly worship false gods as a “god-given right”, we can expect everything – and I mean everything – to become up for grabs and eventually disintegrate into perpetual redefinition-fueled nothingness. When we cast aside the Nature of God as the exclusive, necessary basis upon which we are to understand and pursue all things in His creation, we consigned those things – all of them – to the death-by-chaos that we are watching roll over the land at this very moment. (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to worship false gods. Repent accordingly.)

If we will not be ruled by God’s loving, perfect, sufficient Word, then we will be ruled by the selfish, emotion-driven whims of man.

If we will not have Christ as King to rule over us, then we will live under the tyranny of men.

If we will not defend family, marriage, law, and economics unapologetically and unflinchingly as defined by the Nature of God as revealed in His Word, then we will be overcome and enslaved through the inevitable chaos that must come through any law, economics, and sexuality that is severed from explicit connection to and dependence upon Christ.

That’s where we are, America.

The question begging to be answered now is: Will we repent or will we be destroyed?

  1. Consider this; When Jesus said "But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery." (Matthew 5:32) He was actually making a direct reference to an Old Testament passage about polygamy;

    10 If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish. 11 And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out free without money. (Exodus 21:10-11)

    Moses applied this principle to the marriage of a slave girl to her master, but Jesus is taking the same principle and applying it to all marriages. Notice that He does not condemn polygamy when referring to a passage about polygamy, and don't forget that a polygamist does not divorce one wife to marry another.

    Don't forget that the Lord, when confronting David, took responsibility for giving David his wives, but not for Bathsheba! "And I gave thee thy master’s house, and thy master’s wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things." (II Samuel 12:8) ("such and such things", by the way, since the subject is wives, He would have given him more of the same)

    David didn't actually have Saul's wives, since having one's mother-in-law is forbidden in the law, but rather this is a euphemism which means that He put David in the place of his master, where he too could have multiple wives, like his master.

    Here's the thing; during the time of Christ the only part of the Roman Empire that allowed polygamy was Israel. Now why didn't Jesus point to the Romans and ask the Jews, "why can't you be like them?" The truth is that the Romans were famous for their affairs, and their prohibition of polygamy was a way of limiting their liability. Thus they called their sons "bastards" and refused to support them! When Rome took over the "church" they incorporated their philosophy into their religion, and invented ways to interpret Scripture to support their heresy.

    One other thing; Isaiah 2-4 is a prophecy about the End Times. The passage is a continuum, which ends with the millennial reign in Chapter 4. Chapter 4:1 states that at the time when Jesus reigns, there will be families of 7 women and one man. This will be a result of the disproportionate death rate during Armageddon, where so many more men will die than women. Not only this, but these polygamous families are 100% believers in Jesus the Messiah!
