Polyagmy is Right
Please allow me to preamble before I get into the topic listed above:
As soon as I see those hands go up in the air, twisting back and forth, I get a chill up and down my spine. Those bastards are praying to elect Bush again or doing a circle prayer to they can send more missionaries out all over the world to further fuck up more cultures.
Yes, I am an atheist, but I was brought up Catholic, which is basically a Christian group that doesn’t know anything about religion and never reads the bible. I’m OK with Catholics for the most part now they no longer have the clout to recreate an inquisition. They are a non-entity, however those twisting back and forth, arm raising Christians are just one arm away from the Nazi salute.
Mormons are crazy, too. They are right up there in the whacky cult business along with Scientologists and Christian Scientists. But the founders of Mormonism did get one thing right; Polygamy, and all other Christians should work this into their religions because it is the correct thing to do in alignment with their beliefs.
How could this be? OK, in all Christian types of faiths, you are promised that you will be reunited with those you love in heaven when you die. Now let’s say John and Jane got married and were so in love that they couldn’t imagine being apart. Their love was sustained with the knowledge that they will be bound through eternity, in heaven. One day Jane gets hit by a bus and dies. John mourns for years while Jane is in Heaven waiting for John to die. The problem is that John, in his late 20’s, will not be giving up the ghost for another 60 years. He gets lonely and falls in love with Sally, a woman at church, and they eventually get married. John loves Sally as much as he loved Jane. Jane loved John and Sally loves John. So when Sally and John eventually die, who gets John? It was Sally’s dream to spend eternity in Heaven with John and it was Jane’s dream as well. So who gets him? If only one woman get him, the other woman’s dreams are dashed for eternity. How can that possibly be fair?
That’s why if you believe in the Christian view of heaven, polygamy should be the accepted practice in your every-day life.
