The number of non-religious Americans who accept polygamy as 'morally acceptable' is increasing

Gallup’s latest findings revealed more Americans have progressively become more accepting of polygamy. The study surveyed 1,011 adults ages 18 and older and found 17 percent find polygamy morally acceptable, a steady two percent rise since 2016. The changing attitudes seem to coincide with TLC’s “Sister Wives” which features a practicing polygamist family in Utah.

The group most accepting of polygamy happened to be non-religious Americans when compared to Catholics, Protestants, and Mormons who were less supportive of polygamy.

“Every time you have a show that normalizes something, that does tend to help acceptance, right?” said Pat Gray.

“And there are arguments that if you put somebody -- no matter how distasteful -- on television for a long period of time, they can rise to prominence,” said Stu Burguiere.

“Uh, what? Do you have an example in mind?” said Pat jokingly.

Today on “Pat & Stu” the guys discussed what role religion plays in our attitudes towards marriage and relationships and the sudden cultural shift towards the growing acceptance.
