Viewing the detailed technicalities of Old Testament law as the epitome of morality rather than in certain instances as a temporary ethical way station as man was being elevated from pagan squalor to greater spiritual splendor, a number of Christian Reconstructionists are hinting at the propriety of polygmany. So apparently there really isn't much inherently wrong with more than one wife. Yet these are the same theologians that would probably forever forbid a man that married a divorced woman from holding church office. Some advocates of this perspective would probably devise a syllogism why the divorced that remarry and those that marry them should be put to death (especially the women) since the movement still holds that execution is the proper punishment for adultery.
