I’ve never watched the show. I just stumbled across a news story explaining Utah wasn’t going to prosecute any members of the caste for polygamy (a felony in Utah).
As far as I can tell, Unitarian Universalism has no theology of marriage to guide us on this one. We did once and were pretty vocal about it.
I’d argue a marriage between one man and multiple women inherently harmful to women. Marriage involves power and this kind of marriage inevitable grants a man a harmful amount of power over these women.
I understand the Libertarian case though that maybe Government best stay out of these arrangements. Also the pragmatic case that probably caused Utah to sit it all out.
But what in the world does a UU faith which rambles on about marriage equality and hate have to say? Rev Dan Harper once told me we UUs have no theology of marriage. If that’s the case, how do we judge?
