Polygamist for realsies

ENSIGN ARTICLE: “Elder Perry is one who understands sadness and adversity. In December 1974, Virginia passed away…. In January 1976 he was introduced to Barbara Dayton by one of her relatives; they were married that April in the Salt Lake Temple.” -Ensign, August 1986. [source]

SCRIPTURE: “And again, as pertaining to the law of the priesthood—if any man espouse a virgin, and desire to espouse another, and the first give her consent, and if he espouse the second, and they are virgins, and have vowed to no other man, then is he justified; he cannot commit adultery for they are given unto him; for he cannot commit adultery with that that belongeth unto him and to no one else.” -D&C 132:61. [source]

COMMENTARY: Mormons like to pretend that they don’t practice polygamy anymore, but they continue to allow men to be sealed in their holy temples to multiple women, as long as all previously sealed women are dead. Since they believe that sealings are eternal, though, this means that they are setting themselves up to be polygamists in the afterlife. Mmmm. Celestial sex with multiple women with perfect bodies? L. Tom Perry must be really living it up in death. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
