Chastity (none can be expected if you marry four times)

Reader comment on item: Westerners Welcome Harems
in response to reader comment: Islam encourages Chastity and safeguarding

Dear Dr. Pipes,

Your reader Mustafa from UK says that Islam preaches chastity. Many religion abuse sanctity to marriage. Perhaps, I am old fashioned but I do not see any chastity or sanctity in a relationship if you can be married to four women simultaneously.
