If the United States legalized polygamy, would the Mormon church go back to their old family doctrine?
Yes. And if the U.S. reintroduced segregation, they'd go back to their old racial doctrine as well.
Around Mormons, never lower hands.
Most certainly not. Nowadays Mormons are decidedly monogamous, to the extent that having had multiple prior relationships is seen among teens as almost slutty. Mormon values underwent a heavy polarization after the federal government broke the secular power of the prophets. If the governing body of the church tried to reverse their position on it again, there would be a disastrous schism in their church.

Yes they would. ISIS-tier Mormons still practice polygamy.
I think polygamy should probably be legal, but it could have some fucked up societal ramifications in a society in which male mortality is not high.
I really wish there would be a campaign to get women to dress more decently without relying on rape threats. Can't they just appeal to morality? Men also sometimes dress in appropriately, and that isn't even addressed.
Not particularly, it's by a journalist. I'd recommend it, it's critical of Mormonism, especially in regards to the validity of Joseph Smith's gold plates and other sources of "divine inspiration," but presents a well rounded and accurate review of the Mormon Church and Deseret state from its foundation to the Salt Lake Olympics.
I tried to get into it but I couldn't dig that prose. Came off a bit too clipped and journalistic. Also not American so I didn't exactly know what the big deal was other than some radical Mormons killed their relative because she left the sect.
