Bloody annoying pack of $%*#!!!!

Am I the only one that gets annoyed as hell at how polygamists of various stripes are grouped in with others that could not be more dissimilar? I have seen lots of examples of it but the most recent one was when I was curious about if there were any polygamist groups in my local area who were meeting for the proverbial fellowship and support network etc. I jumped on google, put in my search criteria and up comes meetup.com. When there was nothing near me I opened the search parameters up and dropped the distance restriction. Apparently I might be interested in poly nymphos, open marriages and swinging according to the various meet ups that I was offered. Yeeeeeeah... I don't think so. I know how the search function works and why the poly prefix pulls up these other distasteful shenanigans but that is not so much what I am getting at re the annoying reference. I have encountered over the years several occasions where people have made similar assumptions without the help of a search engine. It has gone so far as to have both my senior wife and I propositioned by a couple we have known for years when we explained the direction we were taking the relationship and the additions to the family. How the hell does that work in peoples mind I wonder...we are wishing to expand our maaaaaaaaaarriage. Add people to the marriage, as in growth of a family, no reference to or implication of becoming open to the notion of extra curricular whoopee time activities. How does saying to people 'Hey, we are so into this whole marriage lark that we want to be married to more people and have more kids' translate to all of us should slather ourselves in baby oil and jump into a pile together? This is an extreme example and I am using a liberal sprinkling of hyperbole for effect but it is not an isolated example. Bloody hell. I can not be the only one who is getting painted with the swinger and or poly network slatterns brush.

As I have mentioned

Comment: 

in our previous conversation, I envy the faith. Not having it or the calm that can result from its presence I find myself wishing to massage their overly thick skulls with a ten pound lump hammer. Down right creepy pack of weirdos. Yuck with a capital blah.

You are absolutely right, today’s society is so messed up, I feel you I went off the deep end the other night being thrown into a conversation that was way off point lets swap blah blah, like there was no understanding to the religious aspect to the master plan but whatever dirty thoughts these jokers have out there

Well spoken

Noblequest, I enjoyed the way you started this topic off! 

First, I wish my faith always gave me that calm you made reference to, but sometimes it doesn't. It maybe the flesh, but there are plenty of Bible Prophets that got plenty excited too. I am reminded about Moses breaking the stone tablets that contained the Law. David, Paul and Elijah are some others, so take comfort in knowing you are in good company.

Second, I have not gone public yet about polygamy and your topic has served as a good warning on what lies ahead. Thanks.

Third, I believe you have been thrown into the heap of perverseness because oftentimes people have a judgmental attitude that keeps them from recognizing/admitting the truth.

Finally, those of you who are already out in the open, are the Marines of polygamy. You soak up the bullets of criticism, thereby making it easier for those that follow you. Thanks for blazing a trail for so many.

I know what you're saying, noblequest! Polygamy has all the wrong associations, I'm afraid, and none of it makes any sense.Here's a good example of the kind of incoherent argument used by those who oppose polygamy. All sorts of dire things are jumbled up together, and polygamy is thrown into the blender as well:

It makes you wonder about the future of our civilisation, when there's such a lack of clear vision out there.

Wow...what a bloody clown

How in the expletive deleted does this slack jaw pretend to associate the over sexualization of the world with people whose main drum that they beat with vim and vigar is that of committed marriage? Also clearly those of us with the outies are the demons who are victimising all of you with the innies. Apparently the desire and willingness to commit to loving, nurturing and providing for more than one woman and devoting our lives to raising children with them and growing old with them is a clear indication that we are the bad guys. Hey I know, instead of taking this whole marriage idea and the permanent nature of institution seriously lets do like all of the other feckless shite pounding irresponsible bastards out there in pop culture and have a shocking stream of affairs, hookups, anonymous assignations and serial monotonous relationships that are not permanent and not truely committed. Hey while we are at it how about we create a string of illegitimate children without the support or guidance of a father in their lives? How about we just walk away from the ladies in our lives after we have gotten our leg over and had our carnal pleasure? How about we scar them emotionally and make them jaded towards the male sex as a whole and degrade the entire idea of manhood? This all sounds like such a great idea! I bet it won't have ANY deleterious effects on the culture in the slightest!

Yeah buddy you are right...the polygamous are driving the bus right into the abyss so buckle the hell up.

Is it just me or has the notion of critical thinking in America officially become a thing of the past?

That mean little green monster. A buddy of mine told the crab pot tale one day.. one crab tries to climb out of the pot and escape. Do the other crabs join the great escape and try to leave, as well? No, they try to grab the escaping crab and drag it back in

OH...

Let's put the blame where it belongs.. feminism. In the old days males had to marry in order to get regular sex (aside from prostitutes) but women wanted to be "free" of the traditional role they played for many thousands of years. Today getting sex from "liberated" females is as easy as a twitter response, no marriage required,so the immoral males amongst us do not marry. Also when divorce comes the man always gets taken to the cleaners. Legal marriage is generally a bad tactical idea for men today.  If women want to know why most men won't commit today, just look in the mirror

Great blog making my point...

I do not follow his advice to be a fornicator, but the analysis of why so many men DO today is spot on

We need to understand that

Comment: 

We need to understand that the proper term to use is polygyny - the practice of having multiple wives. This is what is sanctioned in the Bible and was practiced by Christians for over 300 years after the Resurrection. Note that it was also practiced by Sephardic Jews for the next 1400-1500 years.

 

If we begin any discussion on this matter, it would be best to use the proper terminology as that will limit the amount of groupings in the discussion and lessen the possibility of any confusions.
