Norm Green, polygamy acceptable in Qur'an

Reader comment on item: Westerners Welcome Harems
in response to reader comment: Sharia does not REQUIRE polygamy, and we should not tolerate it.

The Qur'an is far more important than Sharia laws. Now let me quote from the "The Glorious Qur'an": 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. According to the Qur'an, Islamic law supports, in fact encourages polygamy.
