First of all, polygamy is not a "nontraditional" marriage. It has been practiced since the days of Abraham and is still considered religiously acceptable by various Jewish and Muslim sects. Even though it is not socially acceptable in the United States today, it is still a union between a man and a woman.
Secondly, just because polygamy played a big role in the history of the LDS Church doesn't mean it is the focal point of the church's success. Faith in the Lord is the only focal point, period. And lastly, I can't understand how anyone can be so discouraged over something so trivial as the church's position on homosexuality. Whatever happened to the concept of "When the Lord speaks, the debate ends"?
