Philippa Juliet Meek published a few tweets about Mormonism and the killings of nine U.S. citizens near La Mora, Mexico saturday. Then she sent one about polygamy.
“Can we be sure to simply decriminalise and legalise polygamy?” Meek, a researcher that is doctoral the University of Exeter in Devon, England, tweeted. “Like now. #marriageequality”
Meek is amongst the commenters referencing the Mexico massacre for example of why polygamy should always be made appropriate, or at the very least have actually its penalties that are criminal, in Utah and somewhere else.
Herriman resident Brooke Richey, who has got distant family relations surviving in the Mexican Mormon communities, stated the fact Us citizens are living there — despite threats from drug cartels — shows the dangers tangled up in maintaining their beliefs that are religious.
“If polygamy had been legalized,” the 23-year-old Richey said, “they most likely would get back to the U.S. it simply may seem like they’re in such a susceptible destination.”
A minumum of one team has pressed right right straight back contrary to the notion of making regulations friendlier to polygamists. In a Facebook post Monday, Polygamy.org, a coalition of plural wedding opponents, stated residents going from Los Angeles Mora into the usa “will produce more polygamists recruiting spouses right here, and much more advocates wanting to decriminalize polygamy.”
