The one thing that strikes me . . . those religious fanatics must be really, really, horny.
Why else would they've come up with any of this? AND they get to have four wives! That's just here on earth. In heaven they get 72 virgins, if they've been really good. That's a real horny religion.
By the way, compare this with the fundamentalist polygamist Mormons in Texas who also have tons of wifes and a gazillion kids each . . . one old goat for every five women. And the young men get kicked out so the old guys can supply themselves with young women without competition.
Let's face it, the problem with religious fanatics . . . they're just too horny for their own good.
