Really? I thought you were insulting Muslims as usual without using your pause button!<quoted text>
Here you show your hipocrisy aka double standard. As far as Islam allows polygyny, all is fine, when it's the OT then it's a negative.
Then I reminded you of OT. You then continued to attack Islam carefully avoiding any OT bashing.
So who is showing hypocrisy? May be you? Lol..
I did say you knew how to give topix readers narcolepsy through boredom lol..
There is no COMPULSION to marry more than one. It depends on the circumstances.
This verse is merciful giving man real responsibility.
Man MUST TOTALLY PROVIDE for the woman, He cant chase her off to an equal opportunity job expecting her to take care of family! Even if she chooses to work, what a woman earns remains with her.
If a man cannot fulfil a whole load of STRICT conditions he cannot marry.
There are many men in the West (and I know a few) who sleep with many and go home to their ONE official wife. Now that is cowardice because they dip and run with no responsibility. Many rely on Social Services to take care of their by-products while playing absent or missing daddy! This is disgraceful, irresponsible and unmanly.
The MOST HOLY PROPHET WAS A REAL MAN. He took responsibility and there is wisdom in his alliances.
Do you stop to wonder about the Prophets of OT who married more than you me and the HOLY PROPHET put together?
I repeat the OT has NO limit on wives. You can have AS MANY AS YOU WISH!
