“Will Polygamy be legalized in the United States?” asked Kiley Crossland in a recent WORLD News Service report.
“Acceptance of polygamy is at an all-time high, according to recent Gallup poll.”

“John is a sales executive who travels frequently on business,” writes blogger and family therapist, Abe Kass, “On one recent trip, he met an attractive woman in the hotel bar where he was staying. One thing led to another, and the two wound up having a one-night stand.”
“When John returned home and spoke about the incident with his therapist, John denied that the fling amounted to infidelity. ‘One night stands don’t count,’ John maintained. And he genuinely believed it.”
