A new study finds that married men tend to have lower testosterone levels than single, unmarried men. The research, performed on men in Kenya, supports previous similar studies from North America. Also, the study found that men with more than one wife had even lower levels of testosterone. [Mitt Romney: Not a "real" man! -Ed.] However, researchers suggest that this could be due to the fact that in Kenya, it's "older men — who typically have lower testosterone levels — who have the social status and wealth required to obtain more than one wife." Yeah, well, it's sorta like that here, too, except swap the word "wife" with "girlfriend." [ScienceDaily]
@guitarsnob: Actually, they changed their dogma because "the Prophet received revelation" that glorious wonder of polygamy would have to wait for the next world, darn it. In truth, Utah wouldn't have been admitted as a state without the renunciation.
Mormon dogma changes with the political breeze (see the whole about-face on black men receiving the priesthood in the 1970s), which makes it rich territory for satire, but the whole "how many wives has he got" schtick is extremely tiresome, sorry.
This, from an ex-Mormon who has been asked eleventy-billion times how many wives her father has. (My response was usually, "Which father?")
And, yes, Mormons are Christians in that they do believe in and worship Jesus Christ; most fundy Christians, however, consider them non-Christian, for no doubt excellent reasons of their own.
