Mansoor doesn't know the Bible

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: How many concubines & wives?

Submitted by Ruth (United States), Mar 7, 2009 at 18:21

Contrary to Mansoor's comments, Jesus did say that men should only have one wife (Matthew 19: 4-6). Also, King David and King Solomon were disobeying God wth their multiple wives. Moses, speaking for God, instructed the Jews in Deuteronomy 17:17: "[the king] must not take many wives...."

Obviously, Mansoor is not a Bible expert and his "research" is highly suspect and probably very biased.
