With near unanimous consent of the state's legislature, the state of Utah has decriminalized polygamy - with no fanfare, debate or resistance.
Governor Gary Herbert signed Senate Bill 102 into law March 28, making polygamy an infraction rather than a crime, taking all the bite out of its illegality. The penalty has been reduced to paying a fine and/or community service.
Although the Utah Constitution proclaims that polygamous or plural marriages are prohibited, objective observers of recent history can see this move as just one step from a change in the state's constitution and to full blown legality.
Taking a page from "same-sex marriage" advocates, Republican State Sen. Deidre M. Henderson, who introduced the bill, said in February that current law against polygamy is "a human rights crisis ... and we can't look the other way." She added, "We need to stop marginalizing a whole group of people in our state."
Utah's Libertas Institute called S.B. 102 the answer to "Utah's unique human rights crisis." Charlotte Erickson, a polygamist wife contends, "We can't be ourselves in public, we have to be something we're not. And we're just a normal healthy family."
The final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family.Tweet
No one should be surprised. The unraveling of natural marriage and the family has been top priority for the evil one to the disintegration of humanity, and human sexuality has been ground zero in the fight.
Sister Lucia, the main seer of Our Lady of Fatima, said, "The final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family."
She added, "Don't be afraid, because anyone who works for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be fought and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue."
The two main causes of this erosion of the natural order can be found in the redefining of language and the redefining of sex. Both have surfaced on the popular level in the past half century, both are ingenious plans from hell, and neither would have had a chance had Catholics truly been Catholic.
[Ron: i disagree with the proposition that true Catholics would have avoided the Talmudic redefining of sex. Esu Immanuel (aka Jesus the Christ) didn't incarnate to create a religion and didn't. He came to teach divine truths lost over millennia and corrupted by Pharisees and others. The Pharisees not only forced the Romans to crucify Jesus they also influenced Roman emperors to establish the Christian religion in an attempt to eradicate Jesus' teachings. Catholicism is not only tainted by Pharisaic distortions and the elimination of core divine truths, but also the Vatican is now in the hands of neo-Pharisees ie Talmudists. See eg: Judaism and Christianity - Two Thousand Years of Lies - 60 Years of State Terrorism -http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/Judaism-and-Christianity---Two-Thousand-Years-of-Lies---60-Years-of-State-Terrorism.shtml].
No one should be surprised that supporters of polygamy, like their ideological cousins who support homosexuality and transgenderism, manipulate the language to change adjectives into nouns - indicating it is "who" someone is rather than what they "do" or "feel." They are said to "be" a group of people marginalized, who can't "be" themselves in public.
As soon as modern man took and ate the new forbidden fruit of the tree of the knowledge, hell broke loose on earth. That fruit is the contraceptive pill.Tweet
[Ron: I disagree. The contraceptive pill has valid uses, it is its misuse and the unspiritual and harmful behaviours arising from the misuse of human thinking that has been distorted by Talmudism and other demonic ideologies that can be characterised as "forbidden fruit".].
As soon as you change the verbiage this way, you've won the ideological battle, for you can't discriminate against "who" someone is.It's no coincidence that as soon as the Left was able to condition enough people to use the word "homosexual" as a noun to label people rather than a descriptor of actions or feelings, and hijacked the word "gay" to be used as a noun for the same purpose of creating personal identity, it wasn't long before you had "gay marriage."
"Persons who have same-sex attraction" sounds a lot different than "gay people." Transferring feelings to the status of immutable identity, like that of race or ethnicity, leaves no room for disordered desires and actions via objective morality. Likewise, polygamy has become such an identity for these advocates of "plural marriage."Anyone who falls into this verbal trap unwittingly contributes to their agenda.
The redefining of sex in people's minds went hand-in-hand with the manipulation of the language.

[Ron: Not all birth control pills are abortifacants.].
Its logic that makes pregnancy a "mistake" that needs to be "fixed" also contributed to 1.3 million preborn children a year in surgical abortion. Its logic of separating sex from marriage contributed to the creation of a fornication (premarital sex) culture that degrades marriage, which led to a divorce culture where half of all marriages break up. Further, it has led to a depopulation crisis in the Western world that has caused some governments to incentivize larger families since they are literally dying out.
Looking at it from a legal standpoint, it's no coincidence that Griswold v. Connecticut in 1965 legalizing contraception, led to no-fault divorce in 1970, leading to half of all marriages ending in divorce, both of which led straight to Roe v. Wade in 1973, which led to over a third of Americans under 47 today being lost to abortion. And if there can be "choice" at the beginning of the lifecycle, why not the end?Several states and territories have since legalized physician-assisted suicide, and that train is moving slowly in only one direction. The contraceptive mentality of separating of sex from procreation further led to Obergefell v. Hodges in 2015.
Those who have listened carefully have been hearing a soft but steady drumbeat to make pedophilia acceptable, coming particularly from some academics.
The only two taboos St. Thomas Aquinas called "unnatural vices" that this slippery slope has not yet touched are incest and bestiality; and that is probably because of the deformity and disease that can come from these acts rather than the truth that they violate human nature and God's law.
We've come so far that we now believe that identifying with the opposite sex actually makes us that sex. As a cover for the scientific folly this manifests, the meaningless word "gender" has been created.
In the era of fearing nuclear holocaust with the Soviet Union, contraception, which ruptures the inseparable link of the unitive and procreative meanings of the marital act, has truly exploded into a culture of death, far worse that any nuclear bomb could have accomplished. The splitting of love has proven more deadly than the splitting of the atom.
In this, the age of insanity and culture of death, it is no wonder that polygamy has taken the next step toward legalization without much fanfare. It is a subtle aberration to the family and society compared to what we've already been through.
[Ron: This author doesn't really address the negative aspects of polygamy as such. He seems to want to rant about the birth control pill and abortion; and more correctly, the way that cultural Marxists have bastardised the use of language in order to derail Christian morality and the concept of marriage and family as the union of one man and one women for the procreation and raising of children.
Sane authors of any socio-political ideology designed to maintain and enhance the existance of a community must necessarily discourage homosexuality and sexual confusion in relation to the essential and fundamental nature of males and females and their natural biological and social interactions. Why? Because procreation and child raising is essential to the continuance and prosperity of any community or nation The current cultural Marxist campaign to eradicate valid Christian moral, cultural and social attitudes and to prevent rational discussion of these matters is distructive since, if widely accepted, it constitutes social suicide. The evidence for this is already apparent in the declining birth rates in the EU, US and Western civilisation generally.
Polygamy is detrimental for three obvious reasons. First, it prevents a deep, one to one bonding between a husband and wife to the exclusion of others which is the ideal for the spiritual development of a married couple and their children. Second, it reduces the availability of the father in relation to raising his children and providing necessary fatherly discipline and direction for them. Why? Because in polygamous relationships the father may sire many children with different wives. That situation also tends to confuse the children and result in excessive competition between wives and children for the attention and resources the father can provide.Third, if widely practiced in a community, polygamy creates social instability because it results in many males having no female sexual partner and little prospect of ever having a genuine female marriage partner for raising a family. This leads to social disharmony and violence and a tendency to increased societal and political agitation and warfare because there is a large pool of young males who are not well grounded and satisfied with their place in society. It also creates a greater demand for sexual prostitution and homosexual activities.
The tendency for polygamous societies to cause an increase in male homosexual practices is detrimental. Why? Because homosexual practices are psychically, physically and morally harmful to the health and well being of individuals who use them. Widespread socially encouraged homosexual practices are also existentially detrimental to the community because failure to raise children is socially suicidal.
This seems to be a good explanation for why polygamous Muslim nations tend to be plagued by social unrest and warfare and why it has been easy for the US and EU and their Talmudic global controllers to create proxy terrorist armies composed of barbaric women-hating jihardists which they use to further the demonic plutocratic bankster control of this planet.
Global Jewry has covertly sought to eliminate historic male and female sexual roles and their moral and cultural underpinning in gentile societies at least since the days of Karl Marx. The mass slaughter of Christian gentiles following the Bolshevik Coup mislabelled as a Revolution in Imperial Russia in 1917, and mass slaughter of Christian and other gentiles during WWI and WWII, and in China, Korea, Indonesia, Vietnam, Africa and elsewhere around the world ever since, evidences the socially suicidal and genocidal nature of cultural Marxism.
Cultural Marxistsorchestrated Feminism, (see eg: How the CIA Used Feminism to Destabilize Society - http://abundanthope.net/pages/True_US_History_108/Gloria-Steinem-How-the-CIA-Used-Feminism-to-Destabilize-Society.shtml ) which catapulted females into paid employment outside the home making it easy to create family law legislation fostering male/female legal conflicts radically disadvantaging males. This has caused a massive increase in divorces and single parent families with radically detrimental effects upon the physical and mental health and welfare of children. It has also resulted in many males being afraid to commit to normal relationships with females and has probably increased the attraction of homosexuality. These changes have been facilitated by Talmudic funding of a plethora of anti-spiritual sub-ideologies like atheism, materialism, consumerism, Teenageism, Political Correctness, Identity Politics, LGBTQism, Intersectionalism, gender disporia and all the rest.
Arguably, all of these sub-ideologies are 'the fruits' of the 'final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan'to which this author refers. They are all part of the neo-Pharisees' all out attack on US and Western Christian morality and culture. The promulgation of polygamy is just another aspect of the Marxist attack on Christian society via the so-called LGBTQsexual cum gender revolution. The birth control pill facilitated promiscuity and a decline in moral attitudes to sexuality but the real demoralisation and dissipation of moral, social and cultural values in Western society has been caused by the insidious promulgation and acceptance of Talmudic ideologies.
The LGBTQ lobby's promulgation of so-called "anti-discrimination laws" against cultural norms and legislation limiting indulgence in sexually deviant behaviours actually discriminates against the majority of the population who disagree with the behaviours involved. For instance those laws have been used to force Christians to participate in homosexual marriage celebrations contrary to their spiritual beliefs; OR face enormous court imposed costs, fines and bankruptcy. In effect, it is the existence and well being of the societal majority, ie the general community, that is really threatened by the promulgation of LGBTQism and gender disporia etc.
Clearly the real 'human rights crisis' today is not created by current laws against polygamy, nor is it the birth control pill, which is not necessarily the abortifacant this author claims it is; rather it is the demonic tendency to abort infants and to kill children and adults. The US Planned Parenthood corporation is evidence of this propensity as is the existance of Big Pharma and the financially bloated health care industry.
