'Sister Wives' Family -- Just Like The Gays!

7/12/2011 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Mormons and the gays -- they don't always get along ... but thanks to a brand new lawsuit about to be filed by "Sister Wives" star Kody Brown, it seems they have more in common than you'd think!

Brown and his multi-wife "plural" family claim they're filing a lawsuit against the state of Utah tomorrow -- challenging the bigamy law that makes their lifestyle illegal.

The Brown family attorney posted a statement on his blog saying, "We are not demanding the recognition of polygamous marriage. We are only challenging the right of the state to prosecute people for their private relations and demanding equal treatment with other citizens in living their lives according to their own beliefs."

The attorney adds, "It is a challenge designed to benefit not just polygamists but all citizens who wish to live their lives according to their own values -- even if those values run counter to those of the majority in the state."

The legal argument is virtually identical to the one made by supporters of gay marriage ... which is illegal in most U.S. states ... including Utah.

So, we gotta ask ...

if you legalize gay marriage so certain people won't get their civil rights 'insulted' then it is just a matter of time when people want to marry dolls, computers, cars, etc. and according to all the states that legalized same sex marriage, they have to grant these people the right to marry whatever they want to.
this marriage issue was something that should not have been altered. a man and a woman... thats it !

What they do is their own business. If two or ore consenting adults want to get together, why should they be penalized?

What's funny is that there are no Gay Rights, only individual rights. What the gays want is equality and not their own separate set of rights. And so, if you truly support "Gay Rights", you also support the equality of all individual rights between consenting adults. Therefore, there's no reason for you to oppose polygamy if you're for gay marriage.

Why would you want another spouse? One pain in the butt is enough for me.

It is spelled "MORMON" not "MORMAN".

And, yes, they claim gay marriage is a perversion of marriage. Who are they to talk?

How can we claim to be a "free" country when we aren't even close!? Freedom of religion my arse! It's a JOKE! Gay marriage and polygamy SHOULD be legalized as long as its consensual and legal age. How can you push your personal beliefs on others and promote 'freedom' at the same time?! Things like this make me shake my head at America, Land of the Free (restrictions may apply)

This has always creeped me out. This guy is clearly wanting his cake and eat it too. The fact that he found women weak enough to agree to it -is just sad. I find the entire situation pathetic. Those women must have the self-esteem of an ant.

Legalize polygamy = no
Legalize gay marriage = yes

Goodness this is just NOT the issue you want to say "i told you so" on! Next will be the pedophiles! **** rolls down hill and boy has it picked up speed! Hey you all don't want to keep it in the closet fine then keep it in the bedroom! GOODNESS GRACIOUS! What is wrong with people! Humanity has lost all of its class and dignity! The children of this country can hardly read and write but boy have the classrooms made sure they can vote liberal! What a completely desensitized and demoralized society.
