Kody Brown & His Sister Wives Are Fighting To Make Polygamy Legal — Good For Them!

Many may disagree with Kody’s lifestyle and personal decisions, but that doesn’t change the fact that the government should not have the right to arrest him and his wives for the way they choose to live their lives!

Kody Brown and Lady Gaga may have more in common than one would ever think — they are both campaigning for equal rights when it comes to marriage! Kody’s lawyer Jonathan Turley wrote on his blog, “I will be traveling to Salt Lake City today to file (on Wednesday) a challenge to the Utah statute criminalizing bigamy and cohabitation. The lawsuit will be filed on behalf of my clients, the Brown family.” Go Kody!

The Brown family may seem like the nation’s most unlikely civil rights fighters, but they make a completely valid point. Just as homosexuals are (slowly) being granted equal treatment with heterosexuals in the marriage arena, polygamists too should be given equal rights.

To that end, the Browns are even invoking Lawrence V. Texas, the now famous overturning of Texas’ anti-sodomy law, which stated the government had no control over the intimate and private acts of consenting adults.

Now some will of course think this will lead to child brides and cite the all-to-frequent problems of women held against their will in some polygamous faiths but, to be honest, it seems like far less of a worry once it is being monitored. As much as this is about the government not being involved in the personal lives of the Brown family, it also means the government will have an official record of these unions should they occur — and no 14-year-old girl is going to be able to sing a marriage certificate to a 50-year-old man.

It remains to be seen how the Browns will fair, but as anyone on the show has seen, Kody and his wives appear to have a completely healthy and upstanding relationship. Just because it may not be your choice does not mean others should not have the option. And don’t forget that this would be a two-way street — a woman could take a couple of husbands for herself.

Sadly, we will not get to hear the famous gay quip that the Bible says polygamy is against God’s will should this become a national argument. Jacob, Esau, Gideon, and our old pal Solomon collected wives like Carrie Bradshaw did heels.
