Thanks to Fearmaverickhunters for showing me this. http://www.cnn.com/2006/LAW/09/08/jeffs.strategy/index.html Very interesting legal precedent. Now at first this looks like a victory for monogomous marriage. But think about it. If religion is not a good argument FOR polygamy, doesn't that logic also apply the other way around: Religion is not a good argument AGAINST polygamy? That's how legal precedents are set. Decisions that happened decades ago can be used to win a legal argument.

That is one way of looking at it. Mormons today do not practice polygamy. That group that practices polygamy is a break-off from the LDS Church. Any LDS member that practices polygamy is excommunicated from the church. How do I know all this? I'm a mormon girl and I only have one mommy. :)

My girlfriend in college was mormon, she would joke that polygamy was a tool perverted men within the church used to legally screw as many people as they wanted.

Yup. At this rate, in about 10 years ago polygamy will be "mainstream", and anybody who opposes it will be "extremists".
