    I really enjoyed the interview. I find it strange that he could advocate for plural marriage after seeing so much of the world. He has to know that it hurts so many of us women.

      I understand what you mean. I only advocate that adults should be able to choose for themselves who they love. As far as Mormonism is concerned, it seems from the early church leaders that if one is to achieve exhalation one must practice this principle. My personal attraction to plural marriage is independent of Mormonism. It’s simply the way my family intends to live for others reasons.

    No disrespect intended but there seems to be a lot of inconsistency with this story , and forgive my judgement but I sense some exaduration ,
    My intense study of the effects of lsd on the mind and body shows that lsd secretes into the marrow of the bone and finds its way back into the blood stream over time even after long time abstenance , resulting in what is commonly diagnosed as ” A flashback” . Most of these flash backs are very nightmarish and violent due to the age of the chemical in the bloodstream . This process is diagnosed and proven ,
    Also I have a personal Friend who has lived through this horror .

      John, you’re right. LSD use can result in a flashback. I did have one flashback while I was in my first area on my mission. An LSD flashback has certain charecturistics which make it easy to identify. The visionary experiences I had were not flashbacks. I never experienced anything during my visions that was reminiscent of an LSD experience. Also, my friends would not have experienced anything similar to my vision were it a hallucination. As for discrepancies please feel free to elaborate.

      Perhaps your friend has had a more long term relationship with this chemical than did Mr. Bennett. I know him personally and know that he is credible, honest and speaks from the heart only that which is good and pure.

    After listening, I’m a bit jealous of this man’s life. He’s seen it all and he seems young. I went and looked up his music and was surprised he hasn’ really been playing music that long considering how good he is. It’s incredibly impressive to see how talented he is. A natural born artist.

      Peter, thank for the kind words. I have had a marvelous life. Many times I’ve said I can die at any moment with a smile. I have hitchhiked 8,ooo miles, road trains and buses all over and met thousands of amazing people playing music. I hope to one day travel outside the USA as well. i’m 36 if you’re wondering. I started playing guitar april 7, 2013. Hopefully you’ll come to a show sometime. Cd’s can be ordered at http://www.tombennettonemanband.com if you are interested.

    I found it interesting that one of Tom’s reasons for justifying polygamy is one of my reasons for thinking it isn’t God’s will or the order of heaven:

    In several different animal species, there is a dominant male who mates with a herd of females. None of the animals seem particularly distressed by this. If polygamy were the order of heaven, if women are so different from men that they shouldn’t mind the thought of sharing a mate, then why wasn’t the human race created with a similar dynamic?

    I see your point. However it might be a relevant question to ask. Are our relationship dynamics the product of nature or of culture?

    Also if you’re coming from a Mormon standpoint it was taught that plural marriage was essential to reaching the highest levels of exaltation. If you are not coming from a Mormon perspective plural marriage doesnt matter anyway because it’s not viewed as a spiritual principle.

    I also don’t think its meant for everyone.I think people should do as they feel to. We are all free to decide how we want to live our lives.

    One other issue issue is that video games usually are serious anyway with the primary focus on studying rather than entertainment. Although, we have an entertainment factor to keep your children engaged, each game is usually designed to work with a specific group of skills or curriculum, such as instructional math or scientific discipline.
