So it seems that kissing other people outside the relationship should be ok. I would think a hug is milder in comparison.
For those who base their morals on a literal interpreation of scripture, yes. But in fact both the people I mentioned would identify as non-christians, so the issue is not for them about scripture but about their cultural view of what makes a sexual relationship.

What is interesting for polys is that I have read the Bible cover to cover more than once (I regard it as 'inspiring' but not 'inspired') and the only verse that would give polys a problem, even taking everything literally, only applies to bishops. So why are fundamentalists so anti poly?

As you say, friend, it's funny.

I hope other British Quakers who are poly (or wonder if they are) will contact me here, thanks, Friends.
