Son Follows In The Steps Of Polygynist Father

Like father like son. William Green, who is 19 years of age and son of Tom Green who is an imprisoned polygynist (polygamist) has been convicted of having sex with a minor: a 13 year old who he met on MySpace. There is not much to this story if it ended there, but his father was convicted of the same crime (having sex with a minor who was 13). The only differences here is that Tom Green was married to the 13 year old and William met his 13 year old partner on MySpace. Tom Green professed to be a Mormon Fundamentalist.

If you want to read about news from a pro-polygamy slant see here.

Some questions:

-Do you see polygyny as being wrong? If so why and if not why?
-Do you think there are age boundaries that should be put on "love"?
-Do you think that polygyny is on the verge of being re-established as legal? (see polygyny as being wrong link above)
-If you are Mormon, what would you say to this father and son?
