They are also not targeting our own version of polygamy, not to mention other non-biblical “marriages,” which are also rejected by the Church. In the US, polygamy means you dump the previous wife before hooking up with another – or, if you’re Rudy Guiliani, hook up with the next wife before dumping the last one. At least in traditional polygamy the first wife doesn’t end up abandoned. Either way, that is not “marriage” according to the Church, and neither are relationships without a religious basis (if you’re married by a JP, you’re not married according to the Church) or relationships in which one member cannot have children (e.g., intersexed people getting married). Yet somehow the Church is not (yet) targeting these other unBiblical “marriages”.
