The show on TLC called “Sister-Wives” looks into the fundamentalist Mormon church and its practice of polygamy. The following article gives a look into the practice and its close relation to the historical roots of the Church of Latter-Day Saints. The LDS has been trying to shake their ties to polygamy for quite some time, but is it fair to do so? Author Jon Krakauer wrote a must-read book called Under the Banner of Heaven, which attempts to re-tie the practice of polygamy to the LDS’s founders and roots. So the question is: how closely should a religion be judged by its founders and roots, even in light of progress in civilization? Chime in and let me know your thoughts.
