hypocrisy a hundred and so years later...?

First Presidency Issues Statement on Marriage
7 July 2004

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued the following statement today. This is a statement of principle in anticipation of the expected debate over same-gender marriage. It is not an endorsement of any specific amendment.

"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints favors a constitutional amendment preserving marriage as the lawful union of a man and a woman."


okay.. now i know this is in reference to gay-marriages, but (as has been pointed out in other blogs) this is also statement that supports an amendment that would ban polygamous marriages (a man and a woman). how can the church do that??? in the late 19th century we (mormons)were crying and protesting that we had the right to have plural-wives, and now we are trying to take that right away from others?

  1. i may have over-reacted a little here. i guess polygamy can still exist when marriage is defined as a union between 'a man and a woman' polygamy is plural unions of 'a man and a woman'.

    this is what happens when i post right after getting really ticked off at some retarded customers at work.
