• Martin Luther believed in polygyny. (The word is “polygyny.”) As a general rule, when facing a question otherwise difficult to cut I will defer to the Great Reformers. An example of another place where I had to apply the rule would be on the issue of bonneting, in regard to which John Calvin said when women first remove the bonnet, they will next run down the street naked. Two more example of my use of the rule of deference to elders would be on the two subjects of: 1) euthanasia, and 2) domestic corporal discipline – the first of which Anglo-Saxon common law expressly proscribes, the right of the second of which the common law expressly protects.

    I also do think it is of at least passing interest that the sects that tend to allow polygyny tend to be further to the Right. I am not a fan of Rulon Jeffs but his crew looks in some ways more God honoring than the majority of mainstream Jewdeos; he was a White supremist, and very socially conservative. My second example would be Christian Identity itself, within which teaching I do believe polygyny represents the orthodoxy.

    I do believe that the spirit of Anglo-Saxon liberty decrees that every ethical decision, difficult to parse, ought not be reactively responded to with legal sanction.

    It constitutes a mark of our Identity, actually, that the Lombards (who, practiced poygyny like many other Germans according to Tacitus) possessed the substance of Deuteronomy 21:15 in their own law, to wit, one wife must not be loved above another.

    I do believe it must be taken into consideration that the Bible is apparently silent on this issue that some are willing to find an object of abject loathing. I disagree that anybody must resort to great lengths to advocate poygyny, rather, the burden appearing to me to be on those wishing to abjure.

    The idea that YHVH’s great codifier, Moses, would, do to custom, “tolerate” something expressly unlawful is bunk on its face. (I am only halfway through your podcast, so, am not yet sure you advocate for legal sanction on the issue.)

    I do believe that Deuteronomy 21:15 tends to lock polygyny into Biblical law. The Bible takes the legitimacy of polygyny for granted.

    The Levitate law actually requires polygyny.

    All of the above duly stated, it may be that polygyny is an issue like non-White slavery, which, I do believe the Bible allows for, although we would be better off trying to get away from as a practice.

    Your work is not unappreciated.

    • “Martin Luther believed in polygyny. (The word is “polygyny.”) As a general rule, when facing a question otherwise difficult to cut I will defer to the Great Reformers.”

      Luther also believed in purgatory. Nobody is perfect, not even the Great Reformers.

      Yeah, I know the correct word is polgyny. You need to listen to the podcast more carefully. Both halves preferably.

      “My second example would be Christian Identity itself, within which teaching I do believe polygyny represents the orthodoxy.”

      Some subscribe to the multiple-sex-partner thing, others don’t. I believe most don’t. But even if I’m wrong and it is the orthodoxy, that doesn’t mean it’s scriptural. The Jews are God’s chosen people according to Judeo-Christian orthodoxy.

      “It constitutes a mark of our Identity, actually, that the Lombards (who, practiced poygyny like many other Germans according to Tacitus) possessed the substance of Deuteronomy 21:15 in their own law, to wit, one wife must not be loved above another.”

      Get back to me when you can explain how they managed not to love one wife more than another.

      “I do believe it must be taken into consideration that the Bible is apparently silent on this issue that some are willing to find an object of abject loathing. I disagree that anybody must resort to great lengths to advocate poygyny, rather, the burden appearing to me to be on those wishing to abjure.”

      The Bible is not silent on the issue. There is one example after another in Scripture of polygynous relationships going awry. These things were written to be examples for us. One could also argue that pedophilia and smoking crack are biblically approved because there is no specific prohibition against either in Holy Writ.

      “(I am only halfway through your podcast, so, am not yet sure you advocate for legal sanction on the issue.)”

      It’s not very smart to comment on the podcast without listening to the whole thing. Do you think the Great Reformers would have reviewed “Ben Hur” without sitting through all four hours of it?

      “I do believe that Deuteronomy 21:15 tends to lock polygyny into Biblical law. The Bible takes the legitimacy of polygyny for granted.

      The Levitate law actually requires polygyny.”

      All of this is covered in the half you haven’t listened to.

  • “You know, if I were a budding or an accomplished polygamist, I’d want to give this podcast a big miss. A BIG miss.”

    –That way there would be no one to debate. Usually truth-minded people wish their truth to be disseminated.

    Monday morning stumper:

    If a Christian man is married and takes another wife that may be a virgin, or divorced, should he be required to throw her out and be put to death himself?

    “Yes”=Murder

    “No”=Obadiah 18 is a closet poly proponent.

    • Elijah! You’re back!

      How come you changed your email address from [email protected] to [email protected]? What does the C stand for? Creepy? Cesspit? Chochana?

      Normally I’d cast this last comment you posted and the previous one into the virtual trash can where they belong but didn’t because I’m still building this blog’s Web presence, and commentary, even that as patently trollish (is that an actual word?) as yours, impresses Google.

      I shall answer your question if you can explain to my satisfaction why any sane Christian man would want to marry a second wife. Failing that, just send all your tithes and offerings to Pastor Dan Johns.
