Polygamists Sue to Have Their ‘Marriages’ Recognised

It didn’t take long. Within weeks of the US Supreme Court decision to legalise same-sex marriage, polygamous families have sued to have their own relationships recognised as marriages.

Kody Brown and his four wives are the stars of Sister Wives, the reality TV show about the day-to-day life of a polygamous family. The Browns used to live in Utah, where the government prosecutes openly polygamous spouses, so they have moved over the border. Nevada has a more relaxed approach to these issues. The Browns are on a roll. In December 2013 they won a legal victory when a Federal district court overturned parts of a Utah statue banning polygamous marriages.

But the Utah Attorney-General has appealed. He claims that women and children in polygamous relationships are often abused and that courts have consistently reprehended polygamy.

Please pray for Australia that same sex unions not be legalised. God will not allow such outright rebellion against His Commandments to go unpunished. "Suffer the little children to come unto Me." Our Lady Help of Christians, pray for us! Saint Mary Mackillop of the Cross pray for us!
Go to to make your rosary pledge & join the Rosary Crusade in support of NATURAL MARRIAGE.
