The Supreme Court back in the 1880's, when Utah was admitted to the union, found that the government had shown a compelling state interest that allowed it to regulate and/or outlaw polygamy because it places an undo burden on society in two ways: men with multiple wives father more children than they can support, and the state ends up picking up the tab to raise them, sticking taxpayers with an unfair burden, and this has actually been seen to be true in the current case involving the FLDS church, they were milking the welfare system for all they could get. In the case of one woman having multiple husbands, the state asserted that history has shown this arrangement leads to violence due to the inherently jealous nature of men when it comes to sharing pussy, a legal doctrine known as "No Fuckimundo Espouso Asskickitus Gangbangus", and this places an undue burden on society to pick up the police costs that would be involved if our marriages turned into gang bangs. Of course, the counter-argument, "Sloppius Secundus Alrightus", was overturned.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
