Mainstream Mormons aren't interested in polygamy.

The law prevents the state from interfering with individual's free exercise of religion UNLESS:

1. It is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest. AND

2. It is the lhe least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest.

Polygamy isn't going to pass that test, but even more importantly, polygamy requires affirmative action on the part of the state (i.e. a polygamous marriage law) and nothing in this law requires the state to take any action.

I don't know why that would amaze you. The method ought to be acceptable to conservatives, but the goal being pursued matters too.
