You know the answer. It's fuck'em, but prettier sounding.

I actually believe Islamic laws against cohabitation etcetera should only apply to Muslims. Catholics, Anglicans etcetera can of course police their own flocks, however.

Solomon at most was given a dispensation due to special circumstances.


Those special circumstances being?

The Church has condemned polygamy since its earliest days. (See De Monogamia by Tertullian, for example)

And the Latter-Day Saints practice it like a doctor practices medicine.

There's no one way to define the word of God. What one church says is good, another might say is bad. God's word is unclear to all but Christ, Abraham, and depending on your religion the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

Then you're mistaken.


How do you know you are not mistaken with other religions?

Your religion is not the only one, nor should it invade my privacy, or refuse my right to be happy.

If you believe in democracy, you would not support a fascist theocracy and remove the people's right to be happy.

No, it definitely is not. If its with the consent of all individuals, then yes, it's perfectly fine. Cant really see why it isn't.

Please let's refrain from in-depth discussions of polygyny (unless you're making a comparison in each post mentioning it) to avoid a threadjack. I will make a polygyny thread next , Inshallah

As with every kind of polygamy if everyone involved is fine with it and they're all consenting adults then sure.

Having had multiple partners in relationships in the past, gonna disagree on this one. It's lovely having all your relationship needs fulfilled without needing to compromise.

God did not approve of David having many wives, that is simply an example of David reaping the material virtues of Saul on the basis of his past conduct, not an endorsement of polyamory.

It's only immoral if you are religious,

You don't necessarily have to believe in revealed religion to find polygamy immoral.
but it is not anti-social.

It is absolutely anti-social to allow a small number of people to monopolise potential partners. Polygamy is a selfish practice.
People should be able to determine themselves what is acceptable, not the state.

Good to know that you're fine with rape, murder, burglary and selling drugs to small children. After all, it's not the place of the state to decide what is acceptable.
Who I choose to be with is not up to any government.

Legally speaking, no, it isn't; but society can and should exert pressure on those who engage in relationships that defy established norms. That's how moral and socially responsible behaviour is enforced in functional societies. Society cannot function if norms are no longer socially enforced.

And have a theocratic fascist state to deny happiness to people?

If religious people making political decisions informed by their religious ethics necessarily leads to a theocratic fascist state, then irreligious people making political decisions based on their secular ethics must necessarily lead to a secular fascist state, no?

Political decisions are fundamentally ethical decisions most of the time. Genuinely religious people are guided by the teachings of their religion when it comes to making ethical decisions, so you cannot prevent politics being influenced by religious morals unless you disenfranchise anyone who holds a religious belief.

But isn't it pro-social in a society where there are many more women than men (E.G. Russia especially Chechnya)?

Such situations are highly aberrant. Usually human populations are somewhere around 50% male, 50% female.

I explicitly said you can make a comparison, which you just did that's ok. I just don't want to discuss polygyny in it's own right because that's not what the thread is called and because to some people they are different. I'm accommodating everyone.
