"Some 40,000 people in the US state of Utah live in illegal polygamous families in which a man takes more than one wife. These fundamentalist Mormons have now begun a campaign for a change in the law they regard as discriminatory and unfair."This does not mean, necessarily, that the Mormon Church is officially launching a campaign to legalize polygamy. The article specifies that "in 1890, the mainstream church outlawed polygamy." However, I am very interested to know how the Church goes on this one. Will they collect millions of dollars for a campaign to legalize an attribute of their own Church practice? Or will they remain steadfast and denounce any such law that would allow polygamy? Well, if they choose the former, then they will have to explain how it is legally justified for men to have several wives, but two men or two women cannot marry. I eagerly await to see how this all unfolds, if at all.
The California Supreme Court, as of today, has still not issued a legal opinion (verdict) with regards to the legality and constitutionality of same-sex marriages in that state.
