Polygamy in the Bible was a Biblical family value first mentioned in Genesis Some but not all ancient Biblical heroes lived in polygamous marriages and yet still enjoyed the blessing grace and mercy of a loving God. At least two of the human authors of the Bible, David and Solomon, were living in polygamous marriages when they wrote part of the Bible, Psalms, Proverbs and Ecclesiastes.

Condemning same-sex relationships is harmful to the LGBT community.
