Just a comparison to world events
The Muslim tradition has it that a man may have four wives if he can afford to treat them all equally and pay for their upkeep, and of course raise the children in good order.
In Utah the state has decreed that it is alright for a man to have as many “sister wives” as he wants, and there is no law against co-habitation. The law does not mention the cost to the American taxpayer for this cultural oddity.
The members of the Reformed Latter Day Saints in Colorado City took pleasure in “bleeding the beast”, or laying off the costs of the children upon the state. There was sort of a bounty on Down Syndrome babies, as the state took up the paying of this special needs child.
The number of genetic problems always increases with inbreeding and incest, so the tax payers are faced with a double whammy. It is lawful for a man to impregnate as many women as he wants, and the medical care will be provided by the state.
This obscene practice of polygamy should be termed sexual slavery. The parents in this cult are responsible for feeding the practice in that they brainwash their daughters to the fact that they are destined to be handed over to a stranger, usually a man decades older, and expected to pop out the babies every year.
I would call these parents panderers and having the state of Utah declare it legal for a man to co habit with many women makes this legalized prostitution.
When a girl child is raised to be nothing more than a brood mare, she does not have the choice of traveling, getting a higher education, working outside the home or even living on her own after 18.
By the time a girl child is 18 in the cults, she has had two children.
She might as well be living in Saudi Arabia where she can’t drive a vehicle, show her face outside, be alone with a male not her husband or relative, or hold a job that mixes the genders in the workplace.
And here I thought that America was the home of the “free”?
