It is true that the Church in the past have had polygamy and all what come with it.. It was "right" then, but not today.. And LDS have made the whole affair in more than 100 year. I for one would never have more than ONE wife, when I got one that is. Newer more than one woman. Why?.. I feel it is wrong and in any cases it is illegal where I live anyway.. But think about it, to have more than one wife.. It would say that if they was feeling insulted about you, you could get into far more problems with two wifes than one.. And I for one have no power to fight TWO woman at the same time... And if you have two wifes, you might even ha two mother in law... O dear.. They who had more than One wifes must have been either more powerfully than the most of us. Or more stupid that we are.. I do not know :P. But I for one think the whole polygamy cases is a thing of the past, and have no place in the modern LDS Church.. No place at all... The Fundamentals who still believe in polygamy would be thrown out of the Church, if proven have more than one wife I hope.. Even that I know that in some part, the LDS do have some issues... But I hope the leaders who are working with it, is doing their best to tell their "flock" that the only legal thing, is to have one wife.. And no more than One..

It is also true that the State of Utah had to choice between a star on the US flag, or polygamy.. And in fact for the Church it would end in ruin if they had decided to fight the US government in this case.. The whole Church property, and every property owned by member would be confiscated by the american government - if the Church decided that polygamy was something of the past.. And thankfully the Church decided that the smart ting was to decide that polygamy was wrong, and that only one man, and one wife was the only and truly way of marriage..

Anyway. I at least believe that the whole concept of polygamy have no place in the Church anymore.. Even that the past seen to have long shadows into the future.. But I am least are in totally disagreement about the whole polygamy thing.. Who have not part of LDS.. The other splinter groups have no contact with the LDS as I know it.. Maybe some have, but I would guess the policy is pretty strict there.. If they want to be a part of the LDS Church, no polygamy.. If they want to be part of the splinter groups , so be it.. But then you have no right, no duties or what ever in our Church..
