Martin Posted March 12, 2008 Share Posted March 12, 2008 With civil rights advocates working hard to legalize and sanction same sex marriage, many Christians believe that the courts might revise marriage laws in this country. This could open all kinds of possibilities besides "gay" marriages. For instance, many civil rights advocates believe that the practice of polygamy or other forms of group marriages might become legally acceptable, thus trashing any state laws (including Utah's) which outlaw, for instance, polgyamy.Should this happen, would Mormons again practice Doctrines and Covenants 132 - plural marriage? Would they again teach, as did Brigham Young, that the only men who become gods, even the sons of gods, would be those who took additional wives in the new and everlasting Covenant of plural marriage.How would today's Mormon women feel about this? If the anwer is no, they will never undertake this practice again, then shouldn't the LDS remove D&C 132 from the Standard Works, as the Church has no intention of following this revelation under any circumstances?Your thoughts please.
