1nsanilicious: You guys belong on Fark if you think Warren Jeffs is a "Mormon" and if you think that the FLDS and LDS groups are the same.

What am I looking at?

Uniquely Common: Wookie_Jesus: FLDS are not LDS

This on so many many levels.


Yup. Although, I have to ask: what if mormons still believed in polygamy. Follow up question: if polygamy was made legal again, would the mormon church return to it?

Crewmannumber6: Particularly the part about considering it their Godly duty to draw as much welfare as they can, specifically to bankrupt the government. They call it 'Bleeding The Beast'.


Uh never heard that, to be honest. But then, I know mormons love large government welfare projects. See: water works. Their views on government welfare directly contradict their views on church welfare. I know they see them differently, but they really are the same thing. Except one requires membership and the other does not.

Scythe of the Apocalypse
A symbol of man's ability to unite and avoid wiping each other out. Shiva Medallion-Hinduism, Ring and prayer beads-Islam, Ankh-Egyptian "Life" (Bound), Nun's Crusifix-Christianity, Pendants and charms-Judaism, Dharmachakra-Buddhism, Atheist Dog Tag-Belief in non-Belief, Ying Yang Pendant-Taoism + others. Text on blade is an Enochian call meaning "The house of Death, is called, to bring forth the promise of God, The End." Kaniji, Means, God of Death-Shinigami, and Apocalypse-Mokushi. The chains bind the call for the apocalypse by differing/beliefs uniting together in desire of co-existance. http://www/facebook.com/reaping

Mel Gibson is usually referred to as "Catholic," even though he has rejected recent reforms - just like Warren Jeffs.

Link

The actor has been very vocal about his "traditionalist" views, adhering to the Roman Catholic faith as it was understood before the "modernization" by the Second Vatican Council of 1962-1965. ''I go to an all-pre-Vatican II Latin mass," he told USA Today in 2001. "There was a lot of talk, particularly in the '60s, of 'Wow, we've got to change with the times.' But the Creator instituted something very specific, and we can't just go change it.''

So in 2003 the actor decided to help change things back to the way they were, building a chapel in Malibu, Calif. - The Church of the Holy Family. Tucked away in the tree-covered mountains of Agoura Hills, 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, the rustic church, unaffiliated with the Roman Catholic archdiocese, has a foot-tall crucifix on the altar and the priest keeps his back to the parishioners as he performs mass every morning entirely in Latin. In church, women must wear head coverings.

Nadie_AZ: Yup. Although, I have to ask: what if mormons still believed in polygamy. Follow up question: if polygamy was made legal again, would the mormon church return to it?


Ok I'm going to open this can of worms with a disclaimer. These are just my opinions, as such I rest assured knowing someone will disagree with them and I'm A-OK with that, I will not be engaging in a debate on this subject or giving citations or whatever heck else people like to ask for on Fark. That being said...


What if Mormons still believed in polygamy - In a way they do, men can be sealed to more than one woman in heaven. In the event their wife dies before they do, and the man decides to get married again and sealed he will have more than one wife in heaven. Most couples discuss this during their lifetime to decide if this is something they both would be ok or not ok with. However in my opinion, if the laws of the land had not changed. I personally feel polygamy would have died out on its own. In today's society with eduction and advancements in technology a woman is perfectly capable of supporting herself without the financial backing of a man. During the types of polygamy a woman widowed was beholden to charity, polygamy allowed for a man who was financially capable of taking her and her children on to provide for them in all possible ways. Most men did not have multiple wives, and first wife always had veto power if she didn't want to share.

If polygamy was made legal again, would the Mormon church return to it? - Basically just going to reiterate what I typed above, In today's society with education and advancements in technology a woman is not dependent on a man for stability. I see little reason for the church to return to polygamy. As to if they would sanction it or not, I really haven't the foggiest. I would imagine the couple/s would need to have better reasoning than the guy wants to shag multiple women though.

my 2 cents enjoy

It's a lot like dating Margot Kidder. At first, the option of no teeth sounds great.

My 2 cents on the subject.

Polygamy allows a small community to expand quickly through birth and incorporation of outsiders into marriages. Males can be brought into families, put to work, sent on missions. Females can be married, produce more of the group. Speaking from a strictly amoral perspective, the LDS movement has a large enough size to where the practice of polygamy is a detriment to growth due to its negative publicity. Previously, it had already been negative publicity to just be Mormon, an extra ding from multiple wives was the difference between 'Bottom of the ocean' and Marianas Trench.'.

Short answer: It's not necessary anymore. The church is big enough to sustain itself without polygamy.
