Polygamy in the Media

CounterPunch.org

The April 19/20, 2008 issue of the online magazine, CounterPunch, published an extensive article by writer, David Rosen, titled, "The Polygamy Raid and Regulation of Sexual Life". After reporting about the April 3, 2008 Texas raid of the Mormon-based Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints for the issue of underage marriage, the article then reported about the growing national polygamy rights movement which has nothing to do with the FLDS.

The article reported:

While not the formal subject of the raid, polygamy or plural marriage remains the dark shadow over the Texas proceedings. Can consenting adults (i.e., individuals over the age of consent) agree to live in polygamous marriages? And can their marriages be recognized by the state to secure the attendant legal and financial benefits?...

Surprising to many, there is a small but distinct polygamy-rights movement in the U.S, a movement separate and distinct from the FLDS....

Non-FLDS polygamists seem to fall into two broad categories, religious and secular. Christian polygamy represents a conservative, evangelical tendency. It claims to draw inspiration from the Bible and have followers from different denominations...

More secular polygamists are represented by the National Polygamy Advocate (NPA). They look to the Supreme Court’s 2003 “Lawrence” decision as the basis for plural marriage. As the Court ruled, individuals have “… the full right to engage in private [sexual] conduct without government intervention.” Mark Henkel, NPA’s spokesperson, argues that "'polygamy rights' is the next civil rights battle."

According to some estimates, there are 37,000 men, women and children living in polygamous associations from Canada to Mexico. Some even promote a "Polygamy Day," August 19th....

For those more secular advocates of polygamy, consent among the participating adults is the defining principle of association. They oppose adult sex with children...

Their objection, like many in Texas, is over the inherent deception at the root of FLDS plural marriage. There is a growing sense that the adolescent girls, these child brides and mothers, are truly not capable of making an informed decision as to their marital and child-bearing status....
When making these statements, the article also specifically cited by name, the web-sites of ChristianPolygamy.INFO, TruthBearer.com, and Pro-Polygamy.com. As well, Polygamy Day, Inc. is online at PolygamyDay.com

As this report shows, the work of the TruthBearer.org organization is succeeding, to educate the media and the masses that normal consenting-adult polygamists have nothing to do with the FLDS or the underage crimes.
