  1. Guns are something that I am against. In my opinion the only people who should own guns are police officers and people performing some type of job. Guns are not toys to play with or recreational items. Posing with a gun is like saying my penis is 1m long and is too big to do anything with.

    • About one minute searching on wikipedia found this :

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marriage_in_Islam#Polygamy

      “According to the Qur’an, a man may have up to four wives at any one time; the restriction on the number was not customary before the advent of Islam in Arabia. There are two conditions to polygamous marriage in Islam: first, additional wives may only be taken when orphans and widows cannot be maintained by society as a whole and would better benefit from maintenance by a single man; second, the husband is required to treat all wives equally. If a man fears that he will not be able to meet these conditions then he is not allowed more than one wife.”.

      So *four* wives not seven and even there there are strong conditions. Plus how often do we see Muslims with more than one wife really? In my experience and having met a few Muslims (admittedly not all that many, a neighbouring family or two, a couple of my lecturers and fellow students) about, oh, never!

      Probably a silly question but do the bigots here really assume no one will either already know or do even the barest minimum of fact checking that very quickly disproves these sort of ugly myths / propaganda pieces?
