"Stephen Butt didn't set out to be a polygamist. A decade ago, he was happily married to one wife, busy with his church and working as a cult exit counselor in Maine. Then he met a young woman who had been so abused by a cult, he saw only one way to gain her trust for treatment. He married her. Now Butt lives in Utah with three wives and five children, ministering to a group of nearly 1,000 around the country who call themselves Christian polygamists... Butt and his Protestant peers say plural marriage comes straight from the Old Testament. 'We believe that plural marriage is allowed for in the Bible to meet practical, real needs, and this should be acknowledged by the Christian church,' Butt said. He points to passages that say David, Solomon and other patriarchs had many wives. 'Obviously polygamy can't be something that's immoral if God allowed it with these people whom he showed so much favor.' "

"Most find freedom on the Internet, where a half-dozen Web sites trumpet Christian polygamy and underground practitioners make contact. Some sites even carry personal ads: 'We are a married, Christian couple seeking a Christian sister-wife. He is 30 years old and called into the ministry,' one reads... And what about polyandry, one woman having plural husbands? Butt seemed surprised at the question. It seems unnatural, he said; plus, it's not in the Bible. Instead, polygamy is a way to guarantee that all women are taken care of. 'There are more women than men in the Christian church,' Butt said. 'So without allowing for Biblical plural marriage, this forces many Christian women to marry unbelievers or to go without the love of a husband and a family, and we feel this is really a burden to impose on half the population.'

The Australian Church of Antioch was formed in 1985 when prayer services commenced on a regular basis. Archbishop Spruit accompanied by Archbishop Meri from the American Church of Antioch visited Australia in 1987 and consecrated Frank Bugge to the level of Archbishop. Because of the close work and study of Chearle Bugge, Archbishops Spruit and Meri decided to elevate her to Associate Archbishop. Two bishops pf the Celtic druidic Christian church also co-consecrated the Bugge's at this event. This ensured strong lines of female succession. "
