QUOTE: “Monogamy, or restrictions by law to one wife, is no part of the economy of heaven among men. Such a system was commenced by the founders of the Roman empire. … Rome became the mistress of the world, and introduced this order of monogamy wherever her sway was acknowledged. Thus this monogamic order of marriage, so esteemed by modern Christians as a holy sacrament and divine institution, is nothing but a system established by a set of robbers. … Why do we believe in and practice polygamy? Because the Lord introduced it to his servants in a revelation given to Joseph Smith, and the Lord’s servants have always practiced it. ‘And is that religion popular in heaven?’ It is the only popular religion there …” -Brigham Young, The Deseret News, August 6, 1862.

COMMENTARY: Mormons have a particularly short memory of their own history if they believe that they can fight against the rights of homosexuals to marry when it wasn’t that long ago that they were fighting for their own right to marry polygamously. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
