I am watching Big Love , and am shocked. Used to know Mormons when I was growing up and liked them and their families. What is up with these polygamists? Are they all sex starved maniacs who have sex daily with each one of their wives??? Shocking. Is that how it really is? adult content

  • It was an HBO show, there's going to be a lot of sex.   Sex= ratings.

  • Um, not all Mormons are polygamists. I believe a much larger number of them believe that marriage is only between two people.

  • Only extremists are and anything on tv is amped up and somewhat scripted

  • You're pretty ignorant. Do your research before you post. Mormon is the one religion I dislike the most but you're thinking of the wrong type of Mormon. That's FLDS not LdS

  • Wrong group of Mormons. They're not all the same.

  • 1) Big love is a FICTIONAL show. They aren't even real Mormons just actors/actresses. (Don't you think it odd that "snow white" from Once upon a Time is also protraying a polygamist Mormon?)
    2) The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (aka the Main mormon church) does not acknowledge any fundamentalist groups claiming to be mormon that practice plural marriages or polygamy (which the LDS church banned in 1890)

  • Sorry flowersmama.... I am not ignorant. You still didn't answer the question. I am aware of the fact that these are the Fundamentalist Latter day Saints. the show portrays the husbands like Bill as insatiable. Every night with a different wife! I repeat....pretty shocking if this is an accurate portrayal.

  • You are ignorant since you seem to be missing the big red flag. IT"S A TV SHOW, aka FICTIONAL. It's not real.

  • all Mormons are polygamist is like saying all Baptist churches are hate groups.

  • Sheesh if You're going to watch a TV show to learn about polygamist Mormons watch Sister Wives. At least it is some what "real" being a reality TV program and not a complete work of fiction dripping with sex for ratings like HBO's shows are.
