Justification for wife beating.... nice.

A man whose wife goes and sleeps with another man, is allowed to reprimand her verbally first, if she stops commiting adultery, then he should treat her with love and kindness and never mention her sin again, however, if she continues to sleep with other men, then he should stop sharing the bed with her, and in the end, even after doing all this, if the wife continues to have an illecit affair, only in that case (and after having given the earlier two warnings) is he allowed to hit her).

Now my question to you is that what a man would do if his wife was cheating on him? In the absence of God's guidance on this situation, i am sure that in most cases, the man would either kill his wife or beat her up immediately with going through the process prescribed by Islam. Islam is know as a religion that gives you guidance on how to live. And this surah is an example of it.

Gotta love how this guy is still justifying wife beating. You ask what a man would do if his wife was cheating on him. Well, buddy, most sane, rational men, which are obviously in short supply in the world of Islam, would divorce her or try to work the marriage out through counseling of some sort. Simple as that.

Only an evil man would beat or kill his wife, and only a truly evil religion would teach that a husband SHOULD beat his wife for such transgressions. You people need to either sack up and admit that you want all women oppressed and all "infidels" (let me add that I'm a proud one) dead (at least we'll know where you stand), or you need to cull your nuts. Your "religion of peace" currently has the inmates running the asylum.
