So eventually I might get excommunicated in a few years

So some time ago I asked the Pastor what he would do if I married more than one woman and he said, he might excommunicate me because he believes it is adultery

He said he can not prove it is adultery but you can not prove it is not, and that has been the stance of the Church fathers.

[Of course I have never heard of the great Southern Baptist Church Fathers, (by the way I am not Southern Baptist ;) ), he has never ever explained to me where this denomination comes from, but…. he said it is important to him to have a denomination so he picked this one because it is "the most Biblical." Southern Baptists could very well have "great Church Fathers" but… they just never taught me about them]

I could give numerous reasons why I think people there proclaim polygyny is wrong on an emotional basis but I will not go there.

So what should I do considering sooner or later I will have to leave essentially any Church I join?

And if polygyny is so bad shouldn’t he kick me out for being a false teaching heretic who disagrees with everyone (I do not bring up the topic much anymore because I explained my point of view and saw they are not accepting of the truth and that is enough.)

Do fathers "own" their daughters?

This discussion came up on another board I’m on, and the question came about in relation to the future husband asking for the father’s permission to marry the daughter.

It was a rather lively discussion, and of course some of the ladies were pretty far off base (getting into slavery issues and making derogatory comments towards Ruth’s choice of snuggling up under some guy’s blanket ;) ), not to mention polygyny, things along those lines.

So anyway, Cecil’s comment made me think of that, and now I’m curious what y’all think here.
