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.

There is literally nothing wrong with mormonism.

What is that from?
>>
>>598065
Well aside from probably the most heretical thing in existence today, Mormonism is extremely capitalist and pretty much has prosperity gospel built in.

There is nothing wrong with this.

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.

Unfortunately. Tolstoy was right when he it is "the quintessential American religion."

this made me giggle.
>>
>>598052
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.
>>
>>598092
It spawned great Americans such as John Browning as well.

I have two Mormon relatives, and I live in Las Vegas which is essentially Salt Lake City's sister in terms of Mormon population. They're weird as fuck.
>>
>>598082
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.
>>

Why don't we legalize marrying oneself? We're such bigots.

If that was the case Kanye West would be the first person to practice polygamy with only two parties.
>>
>>598113

Then I would finally be happy.

No surprise a faggot LARPer can't wrap his head around living Christianity. Read Harold Bloom's religious criticism and learn how to think.

Have you read One Nation Under Gods? I found it really insightful on a lot of Mormon "problems."

No. Is it academic?

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.
>>
>>598152
Under the Banner of Heaven is a great one too. Plus Krakauer's prose is extremely engaging, as always.

Catholicism is Un-American.
>>
>>598174
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.
>>
>>598077
>individual fundamentalists from a minor sect are representative of the psyche of an entire religion
Well, at least it plays to your bias, scores points for that I suppose.
>>
>>598182
Idk, I find his prose very personal and his sequencing cleverly-arranged. It gets me more interested in the narrative than other nonfiction books.
>>
>>598189
>I didn't read the entire book
Say what about bias?

I see what you did there.
