a true muslim never stops at four wives. mahomed had some 20 something wives, not to mention all the goats and camels whose hearth he broke.
muslims who have only four wives are NOT true muslims, they should not stop until they have a busload of them.
The priests and preachers won't admit it, but Jesus promised 100 wives to every man who followed him, but only if they would abandon their own wife and children to suffer hunger and poverty.

Jesus said in Matthew 19.29 "Whoever has abandoned ... wives and children ... for me and the gospel shall receive ONE HUNDRED TIMES AS MANY IN THIS LIFE plus eternal life in the world to come."

So show me where this false promise of Jesus was ever fulfilled in the new testament or in church history. The only group that tried to fulfill it was the Oneida group of christians in New York (1800's) that shared their wives with each other, each man sleeping with his neighbor's wife every month so they would sleep with 12 wives every year. That would still take nine years. The group collapsed when the founder's son turned atheist and disbanded the group and sold the property. So much for Jesus and his false promises of 100 wives for every man!

Mormons so-called prophet didn't murder near as many people as your so-called prophet.
Also, Brigham Young never plundered, raped, nor was he a slaver.
Brigham Young had 55 wives (Mohammad had 10), and four of them were aged 16-years or younger. Twenty-one were never married, 16 were widows,six were divorced, and six had living husbands. The marital status of six others is unknown. As for slaves - People of color were considered less-than-human by Mormons, and therefore, were not allowed to join the Church.

And your point is? Is it a sad attempt to make Muhammad look less bad?
To me it is obvious that neither had nothing to do with god.

Both were evil men who created a religion to serve there endless lust.

In the Islamic faith having sex with a ten year old girl is permitted and men with the dancing boys. I have one word for these practices. Barbaric!

Your mind may be clear but you have an inability to think.

Your ignorance to understand what I meant when I said "I belong to a non-prophet religion" shows just how increasingly brain washed you truly are.

But let me help you. Well at least try. I assume you are beyond help.

non-prophet or non-profit, you numskull. I'm an atheist.

Just what IS the One, True, Christian Religion?????? And...do Mormons worship a different God than you do?? Tell me, what is YOUR favorite "flavor" of Christianity? You strike me as a "cherry picker" of religious doctrine. You accept what suits your personal bias, and you disregard the rest. You probably wouldn't know the difference between a Seventh Day Adventist and a Roman Catholic. You should google something other than that one, measley, pro-Christian website that you rely on exclusively for information about "all things Islam." Try reading the Quran -and the Bible yourself sometime and draw your own conclusions. I bet you've never actually opened and read either Book.

Why would you ask an atheist "what IS the One, True, Christian Religion"?

Obviously I believe there is no 'True Religion'. They are all man made. But if there is a god, surly he would not give a man permission to plunder, rape, murder, and be a slaver like Muhammad.

Then your mission here is to discredit not only Islam, but ALL religions, right? You're saying that ANYBODY who believes in God is a misguided idiot? Your vitriolic rhetoric toward "believers" indicates to me that you may not feel totally secure in your beliefs. Otherwise you wouldn't be this hateful toward those who disagree.

I give no credit to any religion. But Islam is the only religion that wants to destroy my way of life and deprive me of my freedoms.
