Singha, Overlooking one point

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: islam fastest growing religion

Singha, while I enjoy your articles, you many be overlooking one point. Most nations allow a husband to have one wife, while Muslims are allowed 4 wives and some, like Osama bin Laden's father, had 20 wives and 50 children. That's why Islam is the fastest growing religion.

Point one, Muslims usually have more than one wife, two, their wives have many children. And yes, Islam is the fastest growing religion with approximately two billion Muslims in the world. Yes, Islam is growing by demography or forcible conversions, but more so by producing children.
