Polygamist wants to marry second wife after same-sex ruling


SAME-SEX MARRIAGE BECAME LEGAL IN ALL 50 STATES BUT SHOULD THAT FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT GO FURTHER? MY NEXT GUEST IS A POLYGAMIST. HE WANTS TO MARRY ANOTHER WOMAN. HE’S SAYING WHY NOT MAKE POLYGAMIST LEGAL? JOINING ME IS JOEY JACKSON AND AMY COLLIER FROM SISTER WIVES. WELCOME TO BOTH OF YOU. >>GOOD AFTERNOON. >>NATHAN, TO YOU FIRST. JUST FOR OUR VIEWERS ON BACKGROUND, YOU LEGALLY MARRIED YOUR WIFE VICTORIA IN 2000. YOU HAD ONLY A SPIRITUAL CEREMONY WITH YOUR SECOND WIFE CHRISTINE IN 2007. I WANT YOU TO EXPLAIN TO US WHY YOU THINK THE SUPREME COURT SAME-SEX MARRIAGE RULING WOULD APPLY TO YOUR CASE.>>I’M CERTAINLY NOT QUALIFIED TO INTERPRET THE MARRIAGE EQUALITY ACT MYSELF. I’M GOING ON JUSTICE ROBERTS OWN WORDS WHERE HE STATED THAT DENYING A POLYGAMIST THE SAME RIGHTS WOULD DISRESPECT US AND SUBORDINATE US.>>CAN YOU TAKE IT A STEP FURTHER AND TELL ME WHY IT SHOULD BE LEGAL IN GENERAL IN THE U.S.?>>WELL, YOU KNOW, WE’RE CONSENTING ADULTS AND, REALLY, THAT’S WHERE THE CONVERSATION SHOULD TURN TO MY COLLEAGUE JOEY JACKSON ON THE LEGALITY OF ALL OF THIS AND I’M TRYING TO UNDERSTAND HIS ARGUMENT FOR THE LEGALITY OF POLYGAMY BASED ON THE RULING LAST WEEK WITH SCOTUS. WOULD THAT FLY?>>IT WOULD NOT. I DON’T WANT TO MAKE JUDGMENTS ABOUT HIM BUT FROM A LEGAL PERSPECTIVE, IT DOES NOT APPLY AT ALL. IT’S CLIFEVER TO SAY THAT IT’S E MARRIAGE SEPARATE FROM THE OTHER. HOWEVER, THE SUPREME COURT RULING LAST WEEK DOES NOT BRING ANY TYPE, IN MY VIEW, NOTWITHSTANDING WHAT WAS SAID IN THE DISSENT, THE PLURALITY OF MARRIAGE.>>IT’S OUT THERE. I’VE HEARD THAT NOW. >>IT’S OUT THERE. BUT THE DECISION ITSELF GIVES NO LEGAL AUTHORITY TO THAT. IT WAS A TWO-PRONG DECISION AND MARRIAGE IS AS BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE.>>TWO PEOPLE. >>THAT’S THE ESSENCE OF IT. THOSE TWO PEOPLE CAN BE OF SAME GENDERS, OF DIFFERENT GENDERS AND IT’S PREDICATED UPON, NUMBER ONE, MARRIAGE BEING A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT TO BE ENJOYED BY TWO CONSENTING ADULTS AND PEOPLE WANT TO BE MARRIED AND, NUMBER TWO, TO GIVE EQUAL PROTECTION TO ALL PEOPLE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER IT’S MALE ON MALE, FEMALE ON FEMALE BUT DOES NOT TRANSCEND THAT AND SPEAK TO THE ISSUE OF HAVING MULTIPLE WIVES. IN FACT, IT’S, OF COURSE, A FELONY IN MOST

  1. If they consent then it doesn't matter. Marriage should be legal to any two people or more who have the capacity and age to agree. If you want to marry your xbox, who really gives a damn?
    Marry who or what you'd like to marry for shits and giggles as long as the other party is of legal age to consent. This excludes the marriage of man and animal as the animal cannot agree, and is therefore rape.

  2. People should be able to marry what ever the fuck they want… aslong as the other party agrees.

    Edit: aslong as the other party has the capacity to agree.

  3. If Muslims can do it so can he..I support this man..just as long as their the same race…

    JK :)who cares this is American free country do what you want as long as nobody gets hurt

  4. Dont muslims or arabs have like 5 or 10 girls lol ironic hating gay sex couples while men wish to have more than one woman and make a trio hahaha

  5. yeahhhhh way to go.. now it starts.. BAD EFFECTS OF LGBT…. on society…. keep encouraging LGBT world.. and this is what happens….

  6. it's a fair point.now if you ask me  I am a pro no marriage at all. but yeah ,if 2 or more adult people consent to live as partners why not. btw he said that polygamy it's a felony in most state and counties, so it's gay sex in many countries nowaday ,and until recently it was a felony in most western country too. so I don't get that part.

  7. Seriously, folks, why do you care what these consenting adults do…you need to ask yourself that question. It doesn't mean you have to be a polygamist or a homosexual or marry the same sex. If it bothers you I suggest you try to figure out why you care about other people's private matters and then pay it no mind…live and let live.

  8. SUPREME COURT SAYS THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MARRIAGE. NOW YOU CAN MARRY WHAT EVER.  YOU CAN HAVE 3, 3 4 WIVES, OR FOUR HUSBANDS,  YOU CAN BE ONE STEP ABOVE GAY AND MARRY YOUR DOG, CAT, OR TURTLE.  MARRIAGE NOW IS A STATE  OF MIND.

  9. LGBT, Polygamy, might as well allow Underage Children Marriages, Incest Marriages,  Beastiality animal-human marriages,  and, marry inanimate objects like cars, house and anything value similar to human life  too… Make America more Free in there too. More choices in Life. and get buck wild with it.

  10. He acts like he's addressing the philosophical problem, but does not do so, he merely says, "it isn't a problem, hey look it's illegal."  It's the same way the majority treated the philosophical problem in the opinion.  It simply pretends there is no reasonable way to argue against them, which is silly.  Really what he's saying is that the polling data would not make the populist liberal judges make such a ruling.

  11. All they are doing is stating facts of what the current legality of it is but they polygamists was quite respectful I actually would have liked for them to debate shy polygamist don't have the same marriage rights what's so wrong with having multiple wives or husbands if all the adults who are in the marriage consent and agree to such a marriage.

  12. We haven't seen anything yet. Satan knows his time is short and he's deceiving millions in these last days.  It appears that the gates of hell have been opened up upon America and God has removed his shield of protection on this nation.  The degenerates are running rampant across this nation.  Homosexuality is accepted as normal by most ungodly American's today.  1 Timothy 4:1 warned us that this day would come.  "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;"  With the passing of same sex marriage by the the Supreme Court, I feel that America is shaking it's fist at God.  The scriptures make it perfectly clear over and over again that God does not approve of homosexuality.  They will pay a big price when they stand before the Great Throne Judgement.  God said "come out from among them my people".

  13. if it is now legal for a man to marry another man, then anything should go at this point…i pronounce you, husband and wife, husband and husband, husband and wives, husband and dog, wife and horse, etc etc.

  14. Next time get a wannabe polygamist that can make an actual argument. The case for polygamy was established in the recent gay marriage case by misuse of the 14th. The definition of traditional marriage was destroyed by SCOTUS, so now, anything goes.

  15. Who in their right mind would want to get married to more then one woman at the same time? This guy is a glutton for punishment.

  16. The consequence of legalizing gay marriage. People will start demand every should be legal in the name of love. I love five women or I love ten men so I should be allowed to marry them all and we should all share the same benefits.

  17. It just doesn't work legally tho. It can be easily abused. Everyone would start marrying in large groups. Sorry polygamists….but legally it can't work…

  18. This is such BULLSHIT! WHY DOES CNN EVEN COVER THIS? BECAUSE THEY WANT CONSTANT TURMOIL AT EVERY ANGLE POSSIBLE TO KEEP AMERICANS PISSED OFF! FUCK CNN! IT IS NOT A NEWS NETWORK IT IS AN AGITATION NETWORK! A PROPAGANDA MACHINE! NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF MORONS WHOSE SOLE PURPOSE IS TO CREATE ANGER IN GOOD HONEST MORAL AMERICANS! WHY GIVE THESE NUT CASES ONE SECOND OF AIR TIME! CNN – COMMUNIST NEWS NETWORK!

  19. I don't see why government should regulate marriage in the first place. It is discriminating that government often gave economic advantage to those they recognize as married and not the same advantage to others.

  20. Biblically speaking David had more than one wife,  Moses had more than one wife,  Mary was Joseph second wife.  Where do you ass wipes get your moral compass?

  21. I personally don't care either way, but I fail to understand how two spouses work in a loving home.  I suspect the answer lies in the fact that I never see elderly polygamist relationships.

  22. I support traditional marriage! 1 man and 6 women, 5 underage girls in a concubine and 1 sheep to hump when you don't feel like hearing women nag.

    Besides, if he's only married to 1 woman than he's not a polygamist, he might be polyamorous…

  23. But polygamist would rightfully argue that by limiting marriage to two people they are being discriminated against. DOMA was struck down because the argument was made that it was specifically enacted to discriminate against gays. Well likewise making the law that marriage is between two people directly discriminates against polyamorous people. Marriage has shown to have no definition or real purpose that the government has an interest in protecting, promoting or limiting and therefore anyone should be able to enter into it.

  24. Forget this polygamy bs, I just want to know is it illegal to date a 15 year old even if you're not having sex with her?

  25. I really don't see the reason why, you people can't understand this. You opened a can of worms with this load of crap. But the gentleman is right he should have a right to be married to all the people he wants to be with as long as they are OK with it. You are discriminating against him and what he thinks is right. It is the same point that the gay's used.

  26. Who cares let them they are adults , etc ! Two women that's punishment enough when they both go on their periods at the same time  ! holy crap let him ! lol Hey if its two guys and a gal so what , they can play rotisserie chicken !

  27. Why marry anyone one ? marriage paper is only a piece of paper !  If the person you're living with isn't good enough to stand for their own self …move on

  28. So why do marriage have to be between two people? Why can't it be redefine to include other spouses? You see where I'm going with this?

  29. good for him, I don't believe in it, but hey if a same sex couple can get married why cant a man or woman have a second wife

  30. Who cares what the government says. The truth is this man is stilled married and living as married! Why even look for approval from the States! Homosexuals still practiced their life without the law and living in a lawless society who cares what people say, especially since the majority of Americans practice serial polygamy and whoredom! Sex without the dignity of being a husband and wives! This country is wicked as hell. Sodom was destroyed by fire and America is next!

  31. one lez couple got married and had legally adopted 5 kids in the very first year show me a regular couple who could make that happen in 365 days they would tell a regular couple no way let us first see how the marriage works out they must make a ton of money for the state to say they can support 5 kids in the 1st year they got married every couple who was told no should sue the state for hetro discrimination

  32. If they are consenting adults then they should be able to marry as many as they want. If it is legal for same sex individuals to marry then their is no reason for plural marriage should be illegal.

  33. You opened Pandoras box by allowing and celebrating homosexuals marrying. Now…you have no reason to deny a horse, a dwarf, a dog or a frog from "marrying"… Bwahahah. What a joke.

  34. I have to comments. 1) a country like the USA honors marriages from other countries and business in the USA also do, such as medical, insurances companies, schools, etc. With that said people can get married in different countries and not be found to violate American laws. 2) the guest law speaker talks about how marriage is allowed between two people but is used only be allowed between a man and woman, so marriage laws change like evolution…slow changes over long periods of time with quick or prompt changes on occasion. This mean marriage civil laws may continue to evolve but that actually practice of multi partners romantic love in society is practiced, regardless of the civil laws in place.

  35. The Black guy didnt answer the question. The question was not "what was the decision of the supreme court" but why was this the decision.
    He weaseled out of the question.

  36. I am all for polygamist being allowed to legally marry consenting adults that wish to marry the same person as someone else.

  37. I don’t understand the western logic, you can have threesome and foursome and what not, but you can’t have a responsible multiple marriage.

  38. they r condemning consenting adults polygamous relations LOL yet criticising other countries condemnation of Gay – debunked hypocrisy 😁

  39. Why not we allow gay marriage other than e wanting to marry little children or wanting to marry animals why not we thrown morality out the window oldest transgender degeneracy

  40. Because gay marriage is allowed that's why you shouldn't pick and choose degenerates if you want to let one group have rights they should all have rights you can't maintain cultural norms with all this feminist nonsense and is social justice ridiculous stupidly hottest transgender insanity and yet people want to try to maintain cultural norms and not let polygamists get married if you like gays be married you should let ever group of degenerate some weirdos have the same rights

  41. If you allow gay people to get married then you should allow any other kind of all I had non-traditional person to get married as long as both parties are adults

  42. So basically the government's persecuting these people because of their sexual pretzel and our cultural preferences

  43. Why Polygamy aka polygyny is legal by biblical law and biologically correct:
    https://youtu.be/tRvFh0CQfdo

  44. If the country has chosen to allow same-sex marriage, then be fair and go the whole way. I'm not qualified to interpret the law either, but I'm pretty sure the justification for all this was "freedom".
