,It seems that the brilliant minds at the Associated Press have picked up on a huge story. It seems that, after months of research – they have come to the finding that Mormons (GASP!) Once practiced polygamy. Yahoo! News picked up on the astonishing fact in their story “Romney Family Tree Has Polygamy Branch.”
In all reality, it is true that Mormons did once practice polygamy. It is also true that members of Romney’s family did practice multiple marriages – in the late 19th century. Mormons have since banned this practice and, in fact, Mitt Romney is the only major candidate on the Republican side to only marry once.
Just goes to show how much the important details matter to the media. Can we PLEASE start talking about actual issues in this election?
