Witte Addresses Legal Issues Surrounding Polygamy

John Witte, Jr.

John Witte, Jr. explains why polygamy isn't legal -- and how it could be in the future -- in Christianity Today, a recent Sightings column, and in a Q&A on the "Religion Writer" blog, produced by reporter Andrea Useem. Witte is Jonas Robitscher Professor of Law and director of the Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University. Go to "Does Polygamy Have a Legal Future in the U.S.?" to read the Q&A. Reuters.com and Religion News Service also are featuring the interview.

The Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University is home to world-class scholars and forums on the religious foundations of law, politics, and society. It offers first-rank expertise on how the teachings and practices of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam have shaped and can continue to transform the fundamental ideas and institutions of our public and private lives. The scholarship of CSLR faculty provides the latest perspectives, while its conferences and public forums foster reasoned and robust public debate.
