The last I heard we weren't supposed to judge other cultures and push our standards and principles on anyone.

Doubly so with islam.

Let the feminists deal with this one.


I often have mini fantasies about dropping all the feminists and leftists in the middle of a Muslim country.
I’d give it a week before they were begging to come back and close the borders hahaha

I would think the four wives thing has everything to do with populating the earth with little muzlims who will grow up to be jihadists that will take over the world as the Quran demands...

I’ll give some credit where it’s due
Back in Mo’s day a lot of Islamic laws made sense
No booze or drugs, Arab’s were constantly intoxicated
4 wives allowed, huge numbers of men killed in wars meant there were an excess of women and it also promoted the idea of going to war to get extra women
No pork, no refrigeration and a poor understanding of hygiene in that climate meant disease was rife
Pray 5 times a day, before prayers all Muslims are forced to cleanse themselves and it was the only way to get them to wash
The list goes on

In its time it was a good thing, now it’s just outdated at best and barbaric at worst

It reads something like “a man may have more than one wife if he is able to tear them all fairly and keep them happy” The very next line reads “no man can keep more than 1 woman happy” Words of the prophet himself

Didn't Mohammed have 9 wives?


Ummm...pretty sure he had a 9 year old wife...

I don't really have an issue with polygamy. What consenting adults do is none of my business. I don't know how one can support gay marriage, but then also be against polygamy.

Men are hardwired to sleep with as many women as possible. Women are hardwired to seek out men who are protectors and have resources. Biological facts.

The only issues I've seen with polygamy is that in some communities (think Mormons), they have an issue with elder men pushing out young boys who might be considered competitors for the women.

According to this Wikipedia entry, he had around 13 wives. He was married to eleven of them simultaneously if I am reading it correctly.

Your all losing sight of the post. It aint about having more than one wife, it's about ALL wives and women losing their autonomy, their choices etc. to a male dominated, sharia ruled area. While Indonesia is accepting this annex of their country just think that this is exactly why the Rohinga were kicked out of Myanmar. Not because they were Rohinga but because they were Muslim and wanted Northern Myanmar as a Muslim state with Sharia law. The Myanmar would not stand for that. So when you see the MSM moaning about Rohinga persecution you'll know what it's about.

I'm just glad to know I'm not the only one with a top 100 porn stars list.


But if you know that much about the body of work of porn stars you don't like, I shudder to think of what you know about porn stars who are on your top 100 list. I tip my hat to you sir.

Back to the topic, this seems like a problem with an easy solution: if the guy already has a wife, don't marry him. Problem solved.

Being good Suni devotees they installed their own Sharia laws and tax system and are now trying to pass a law that says men may have 4 wives. Why any woman does not run from Islam as fast as she can will always be an eternal question in my mind.

Islam is what is wrong with Islam.

There is nothing inherently evil or even wrong with the concept of polygamy.

Some of my favorite Heinlein novels involve societies where polygamy is not only legal, it is the norm.

The main reason governments are opposed to it is because polygamy provides a way for families to become very powerful, both politically and financially, in their own right.

Th Qur'an says that a NORMAL believer can have 4 wives.

The Angel told Mo that he was so Holy he could have 16.

It was originally the semitic culture's way of making sure that no woman was raped (under the care of a father or husband), and that no woman starved to death. In the Hebrew Bible, it is a law that if your brother dies and leaves a widow, that you are expected to either marry the widow or find her a husband. Thou shalt not let thine ex sister-in-law play the hoe.

Are you aware that as recent as 2001 that an American Male over the age of 21 to 34 legally married a 10 year old ? And it's not just a one time occurrence, 3 10 year old females were married that year. Or that a 74 year old man legally married a 14 year old girl ? The same year an 11 year old Male was allowed to legally marry a 31 year old female.

Some changes were made by most states in 2017 but 18 states still have no age restrictions regarding minors being married. A simple permission slip from a parent is all that is required. In almost every state, the restrictions have loop holes such as pregnancies, a Judge's permission or that the minor is emancipated. In comparison, Afghanistan restricts marriage of minors to 15 years old.

From 2000 to 2015, over 200 thousand children have been married legally in the United States. Often, Judges give permission for marriage knowingly to a child's abuser/racist. Sadly in many states, a child in a marriage is unable to file for divorce, unable to legally flee to a shelter, or recieve other aid because, hold onto your hat, because they are too young, because they are minors.

These figures are considered low as many states refuse to release any information citing privacy laws. Our legal system is failing these children. So before anyone in the states can call out another country we need to clean up our own house. It is also believed that Mary was as young as 13 when she gave birth to Gods only son so hard to criticize one religion when the predominant religion here is as guilty as that criticized.

It should not even be about religions, countries, or our laws. It should be about the children and it appears that the world is failing to safeguard the most precious resource the world produces, our children.

I told my wife how much better life would be with a 2nd wife. 3 incomes rather than just 2. The 2nd wife could work so my wife won't have to after we have kids. It seemed win win, she didn't like it though.

I don't agree with their approach, but this road map you speak of may just be why China has their special happy fun-time camps for religious folk.

Seems to me , and I’m not a female so maybe most wouldn’t agree, but it seems to me a polygamist is FAR more moral than someone banging trashy prom stars while his wife was pregnant..

Do you actually have proof that he had sex with Daniel's? Like actual, tangible proof?

An NDA is proof of nothing other than he was likely being extorted as rich men routinely are by gold diggers.

And no her word isnt proof either.

Other than that what is the basis for your speculation?

Yeah that's what I thought. Another garbage story that you clowns ran with like it was the word of God passed down to us mere mortals.

I’m with you... assuming everything is voluntary, if someone wants more husbands/wives that is their business..

Is that really worse than a constant cheater?!?

I don’t think so..


2) 1,000 years ago good luck finding a lot of marriages that we wouldn’t considered pedophilia today..

Really in every culture... and it just stopped less than 100 years ago..





This is about the 10th time you've used this underhanded defense of pedophilia in the last 10 days.

You need to clear your conscience bud? Or is it just wishful thinking for better days gone by?

Malaysia is fairly moderate, at the the middle and southern parts, and the women didn’t put up with any crap.


My experience with Malaysia is I was good friends with a Malaysia citizen of Chinese descent. He often complained about cultural racism and government policies against Chinese Malaysians. He claimed the non-Chinese Malaysian Malaysians are very strong racists.

In terms of crap and women, I think we can all agree women are the stronger of the species.



Women most definitely are not the stronger side of the species. What a ridiculous thing to say.
