#LoveWins Update: VIDEO: Polygamists Apply for Marriage License: ‘We Just Want Tolerance’

Nathan Collier came into the Yellowstone County Courthouse in Billings, Montana,  to get a license to get legally married to his second wife, Christine, looking to get married under the “Marriage Equality Act.”

However, polygamy is currently illegal under Montana state law.

“We just want to add legal legitamacy to an already happy, functional, strong loving family,” Mr. Collier told KTVQ.

Christine explained that there is a spot on the marriage application where you indicate when your last marriage was legally ended and they marked, “n/a.”

“I’m [still] married to my first wife, Victoria,” Mr. Collier explained to the Courhouse clerk and her perplexed supervisor. “We’re a plural family. I’m a polygamist. I have two wives,” he said.

“We’re not even asking for acceptance, we’re just asking for tolerance. Let us live our lives together without fear.”

As conservatives have predicted for years, once the definition of marriage gets perverted, the door will be wide open for all types of adulterations.

“It’s two distinct marriages, its two distinct unions, and for us to come together and create family, what’s wrong with that?” said Christine. “I don’t understand why it’s looked upon and frowned upon as being obscene.”

While the request of the Collier’s was denied, as you can see in the video below, it was not “officially denied,” according to MTN News. When asked for comment, the Attorney General’s office referred MTN News to two sections of Montana law stating polygamy is illegal.

Last week the Obama Supreme Court unconstitutionally redefined the time-honored definition of marriage to include homosexual couples, which was roundly celebrated in social media with the #LoveWins hashtag.
