Islam needs a reformation - but that will entail a bloodbath to make WW2 look mild

Reader comment on item: Strange Sex Stories from the Muslim World

Submitted by Sully (United States), Sep 14, 2008 at 21:29

Christianity's schisms and then its reformation cost millions of lives in a much less populous world. Islam's schisms have already cost millions of lives, its reformation will cost tens or even hundreds of millions.

This Nigerian Imam is symptomatic. 86 wives and 170 children. A culture can generate a lot of cannon fodder at that rate, especially if its marriage rules, even when enforced, ensure that something like 60 of his 80 male children will never find women for marriage. They will thus be useful only to clear minefields and such, as Iran used its boy children.

Our children and grandchildren must never find themselves inferior to, or even equal to, these people in weaponry.
