Polygamy

Interestingly, all the sudden, the issue of polygamy is everywhere. There is a new show airing on HBO, I’m reading a book that talks about it, and this morning I heard an interview of Mark Henkel, who is the founder of Truthbearer.org, a Christian evangelical polygamy organization.

Now, I was under the impression that polygamy is/was something that is/was only practiced by certain Mormon fundamentalists. I had no idea there were any other groups currently practicing. So, imagine my surprise to hear that there is a “Christian” polygamy movement.

I’d be curious to know how many of my readers were actually aware of this. Who’s heard about this “Christian” polygamy movement?

  1. Ive heard alot about it, christian and not christian. Ive been studying polygamy from an anthropological cross cultural view as well as a theological philisophical perspective. all has been conclusive that the united states did not relize that in examing marriage as a form of right or institute that it would drag out so much history on such a diverse world of practices, but it has, and it is changing the way everyone looks at marriage.
