[Try saying that twice in a hurry: “monogamy, schanogamy; monogamy, schanogamy”]
DID YOU KNOW that polygamy is supported by the Bible? Take a gander at these verses:
Exodus 21:10 "If [a man] marries another woman, he must not deprive the first one of her food, clothing and marital rights."
In 2 Samuel 5:13 "After he left Hebron, David took more concubines and wives in Jerusalem, and more sons and daughters were born to him."
In 1 Kings 11:3, King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines: “He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines, and his wives led him astray."
In 2 Chronicles 11:21, King Solomon's son Rehoboam had 18 wives and 60 concubines.
In Deuteronomy 21:15 "If a man has two wives, and he loves one but not the other, and both bear him sons...."
And in the New Testament, Jesus sanctifies all of the above by saying: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law (the Old Testament) or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them." (Matthew 5:17-18)
After they kill abortion rights, d’ya suppose Christians will go after monogamy next?
