Good article, thanks for posting. Utah isn't ready to say, "Polygamy is okay," right now they are framing the whole issue around abusive situations, and saying that decriminalizing polygamy makes it easier for victims of abuse to come forward (without fear of going to jail and losing their kids). Ironically, the side opposing polygamy is using the very same argument, saying that decriminalizing polygamy makes it easier for abusers to go about their abusive business. I think eventually we'll have to address the morality question surrounding polygamy itself, a question that will be complicated by the fact that in Utah, "polygamy" means "patriarchal polygyny" and that's what you'd be condoning.
