    Of course, you can't tell Huckabee that. You can't say that to anyone who believes, beyond all evidence, that we are all descendants of Adam and Eve who walked the earth 4004 years ago.

    Polygamy is recorded, in the bible, as being the norm for marriage in biblical times.

    Polygamy was practiced in ancient Greece, among the Scythians, among the Hittites, the Persians, the Arabs, the Chinese, etc etc etc.

    It's interesting that this is the next subject I'm commenting upon, since I just got done demolishing Mormonism. Mormons had to give up polygamy to have the state that they dominated admitted into the union, and that was a little over a hundred years ago.

    They changed the basic building block of their society: the family structure. a few generations ago. So much for Huckabee's argument.

    I hope Huckabee continues to be a rising star well into the primary season, because when people find out that he's a fundamentalist kool-aid drinker, it's going to create chaos for the Republican Party. Any Democrat will mop up the floor with Huckabee. ANY of them.
