  1. As to the discussion on polygamy & the debate of whether it is a gateway crime to other crimes: Polygamy is in itself a crime in most states, including Utah. Although of course not a crime authorities care to prosecute. In my years of research as a journalist, author of ‘God’s Brothel’ & researcher for the documentary, ‘Inside Polygamy,’ I can tell you it is not about “consenting adults.” It is about control & brainwashing – the reason it is deemed a foe to democracy. Through out the world where polygamy is practiced, it is rife with child abuse, forced marriages/trafficking, etc.
