Right so purchasing male or female slaves among foreigners, treating them as your property and passing them on as inheritance is different from American slavery how?

Also the "slavery" that a person chose to enter was indentured servitude. They were "slaves" for like 6 years and were set free.

The slaves at that time were treated much better and were usually prisoners of war.

I think he did. Is there a reason he shouldn't have?

I watched Oprah yesterday. Yes...I'm man enough to admit I actually watched it...I think the first time I ever have, btw. They had on the guy that is married to 4 wives in Utah...now living in Vegas. He is a fundamentalist mormon. They did a pretty good job of making it look like a good lifestyle.

Is that next? How are we right to tell a guy he can't have 4 wives?

How are we to tell anyone that something is wrong? What is your standard? How do you determine where to draw the line?

That is EXACTLY the same garbage people spewed when they were legalizing interracial marriage.

It is really sad that the same mind sets of klan members still exist today and is socially ****ing acceptable in America.

Two consenting adults marring is not even remotely close to boning animals or dead people.

And why not legalize polygyny? If they are all consenting adults they should have every right to join in a union.

How do you decide where to draw the line? Who are you to suggest one thing is right, but not another?

When both parties can agree to it is where I draw the line. Can animals or dead people agree to a union in front of the law? Not unless you have some superpower to talk to the dead or animals then no. Can human adults agree to a civil union under their own free will? Yes!!! It is a simple concept.
