The times, they are indeed a-changin’.
Increasingly progressive narratives, artfully transmitted through the so-called mainstream media and America’s public school systems, continue to exert unfortunate influence on the moral and ethical underpinnings of the population. Another case in point: As reported by MRCTV, results of a new Gallup Poll are out that detail nearly 20 percent of Americans view polygamy as being “morally acceptable.”
The exact number, 17 percent, is the highest recorded since Gallup started asking the question 14 years ago.
Revealingly, those Americans who self-identify as being non-religious are much more supportive of polygamy than those who adhere to faith-centered belief systems. According to Gallup, “[b]etween 2011 and 2017, 32 percent of Americans who do not associate with a particular religion or have no religion at all said polygamy was ‘morally acceptable.’” However, just nine percent of Protestants, 10 percent of Catholics, and 12 percent of Mormons see having multiple spouses as being an acceptable lifestyle choice.
Gallup seems to further hit the nail on the head with its assessment that greater approval of polygamy is a function of a larger change in the moral landscape of the nation: “Moral perceptions have significantly, fundamentally changed on a number of social issues or behaviors…most notably, gay/lesbian relations, having a baby outside of wedlock, sex between unmarried men and women, and divorce.”
