LET'S RECAP THE LAST E-MAIL:
ps. in Islam you guys still follow the polygamy system where a woman doesnt even have half the respect or intelligence of her husband, no matter how dumb he is.
YOU < yeah, we really dont, I treat woman as people, and anyone who doesnt is following Islam correctly
So lets see women are treated the same and polygamy is non-islamic ......hmmm
The Quran in Sura 4:3 says:
And if you be apprehensive that you will not be able to do justice to the orphans, you may marry two or three or four women whom you choose. But if you apprehend that you might not be able to do justice to them, then marry only one wife, or marry those who have fallen in your possession. (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 305) <<
"Women are naturally, morally and religiously defective". (Bukhary - from http://www.submission.org/women/equal.html)
EQUALITY OF WOMEN
The Quran in Sura 4:11 says:
The share of the male shall be TWICE that of a female . . . . (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 311)
The Quran in Sura 2:282 says:
And let two men from among you bear witness to all such documents [contracts of loans without interest]. But if two men be not available, there should be one man and two women to bear witness so that if one of the women forgets (anything), the other may remind her. (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 205).
The Prophet said, "Isn't the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?" The women said, "Yes." He said, "This is because of the deficiency of a woman's mind." (Bukhari, emphasis added)
(SURA4:34) . . . If you fear highhandedness from your wives, remind them [of the teaching of God], then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them. If they obey you, you have no right to act against them. God is most high and great.<<<<<<<
PS ( these are your questions from the previous post, there all old testament no questions from the New Testament or book of Matthew.)
I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other laws in Leviticus and Exodus and how to best follow them.
