in response to reader comment: Yet Christianity Is Growing Fast In The Global South

Submitted by Infidel (Canada), Oct 13, 2008 at 16:00

While the Evangelical Protestants, Roman Catholics, and Anglicans are still growing fast in the global south, they are not close to the exploding population of Muslims. According to the Glorious Qur'an, a Muslim can have four wives and as many concubines as he wishes. Please note the following Aya:

"Sura4:Aya3 If you fear that you shall not be able to act justly with the orphan girls, then marry other women of your choice, two or three, or four". As an example, Muhammad married Aisha when she was 6 years old and had sex with her when she was 9 years old. In fact, Muhammad had 13 wives.

More information from Nigeria: (9,16,08)
ABUJA, Nigeria - Police in northern Nigeria have arrested a Muslim preacher who has 86 wives and 107 children for breaking Islamic marriage laws. The reason he was arrested is he was allowed to have 4 wives and as many concubines as he chose. His mistake was in having 86 wives.
