Polygamy Posted on 05-24-2005

I just got done watching Dr. Phil...which is rare, but newho, i found the topic kind of interesting. It was about this secret polygamy society in Colorado City. They are the very extreme of conservative and believe many of the traditions that they follow and beliefs that they hold are through the will of God. One woman was married to a man that has 15 wives. Most of them on average have about 6 children with him. That's about 90 children ya'll . The wife was very content with the situation and says that she loves her family (yeah...all 200 of dem peeps). Ya'll can call that polygamy if u want...but it sounds like PIMPIN to me. Then there are the "lost" ones. Those are children/teenagers that managed to escape out of the society and start new lives for themselves. Two teenage girls had to re-educate themselves because their education level stopped at elementry school. They were used to be very submissive and always doing for others. Not to mention they are quite timid and fearful of guys. One of the girls stated "I really don't want to be bothered with boys right now. I think they are one of the most stressful things on the planet". Now that was one of the realest statements i heard throughtout the whole show And guys...don't think you're left out of the loop either. A few of the young guys "escaped" as well. One boy ran away at the age of 14 with nothing but the clothes on his back. He was not allowed to play any sports becuz it was seen as "prideful". One guy was kicked out at the age of 18 because he kissed a girl that he was in love with. I'm not one to knock the religion of others...to each his own. But like i said...i know pimpin when i see it

I think that polygamy is wonderful. It means that only the people with good enough genes to get a bunch of girls will have many wives. Then they can have hundreds of babies that will further propagate their superior genes. If I lived there I would have hundreds of mini-me's.

but thats the thing...its more than them being a " ignorant female. " They are born into a society where this where they are taught that this is right. They are taught to believe that if they dont live this lifestyle they will burn in hell...so unfortunately...they have been brainwashed into believing this.

Who's to say they are wrong for polygamy and we are right for monagamy? There are not rights and no wrongs, just differences in opinions. Unfortunately for them, I differ heavily. Thunder
