“Big Love”?: HBO Skips True Polygamy in Islamic U.S.

By Debbie Schlussel
HBO’s new show, “Big Love,” is getting a lot of hype. Airing in the prized post-Soprano’s slot on Sundays at 10 p.m. Eastern, the show is about a lapsed Mormon in suburban Salt Lake City who has three wives and families.
But while the Mormon Church banned the practice of polygamy in 1890, another religion continues to encourage it to this day. Hint: It begins with an I, ends with an M, and has an S-L-A in the middle.
If you think men with four wives only happens in Utah, think again. If you think that, with Muslims, it only happens in some desert emirate over in the Middle East, also think again.
The fact is there are Muslim men with multiple wives living everywhere in America. But unlike the Mormons–most of whom don’t practice polygamy anymore–Muslims with multiple wives aren’t subject to ridicule, like HBO shows or Jay Leno jokes. And they aren’t prosecuted, like Mormon Tom Green was.

HBO’s Fictional “Big Love”; America’s Real, Growing “Big Love”

There are Muslim polygamist men living not far from me in the Detroit area. They have one wife, to whom they were married in the eyes of the State, and several to whom they are married in the eyes of the mosque. While our government recognizes these marriages for Muslims, it enforces polygamy laws against everyone else. In Dearborn, Michigan–Islamic America’ nucleus–statutory rape cases have been dismissed on the grounds that there was a marriage (of a 14-year-old girl! in one case) in the eyes of the mosque.
Here’s a quote from Islamic commentator Hassan Hathout:

We American Muslims are subject to American law and we have the right of objection only if the law forces us to do something against Islam. . . . When an American Muslim takes a second wife (as is rumored to be the practice of some Islamic centers), the second wife is denied her “legal” proof of marriage, and will essentially be kept as a hidden or secret wife.

This is a huge drain on Infidel society, because there have been instances where Muslim polygamist marriages have been used to foment mortgage and bank fraud, as well as Medicaid fraud. In addition, the multiple wives are usually an excuse to milk the system, whether it’s Medicaid or Aid to Families with Dependent Children or WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) aid.
But when it comes to Islamic polygamy on our shores, neither law enforcement–nor feminists constantly griping about exclusive golf clubs–are lifting a finger. While the Utah and Arizona Attorney Generals’ offices investigate and issue reports about Christian polygamy in their states, not a word from their Michigan counterpart. The double standard is clear.
So where’s HBO’s “Big Islamic Love” show? Don’t hold your breath. Only Christians need apply for the scorn. Muslims . . . totally off limits.

I would like to see some numbers on Muslims practicing polygamy in the US. I suspect they wont be very high or atleast thats my anecdotal impression. One fraud that I do know a lot of Muslims (almost always Somalian) commit in the Mid-West is the welfare marriage fraud.
The man divorces his wife, then marries her again without having the marriage registered and the woman then gets on the welfare roll while continuing to live with the man as his wife. I am told that a lot of Somalian refugees engage this fraud.

Whether Muslims are practicing POLYGAMY or PLEASURE MARRIAGES (contracted sexual liaisons lasting a hour or a weekend) the verdict is still the same. RAMPANT ISLAMIC HYPOCRISY! Muslims practice the VERY IMMORALITY they condemn Westerners for!
Is it any wonder that MUSLIMS are the LAUGHING STOCK in this world?
And in the next!
With Mohammedís SELF-INDULGANT and SIMPLETONíS version of heaven with itsí beautiful trees ripe with good fruit, and all the sensual delights an Arab could crave?
Is that the best vision of heaven, that Mohammed, your FALSE PROPHET could come up with?
Well, followers of Mohammed, there is nothing in your religion that will move those that are authentically spiritual toward their God.
Your religion that focuses on EXTERNAL OBSERVANCES and then HATRED and MURDER meant you went full circle and blocked all the channels of grace you should have had. You were destined to miss the presence of God and the Prince of Peace. TRUE HEAVEN where GOD is your companion and focus could only bore, or more likely horrify you!
So enjoy this worldÖits all you have~

I would expect liberals to ignore this, because they think the practice is all right. But it’s disturbing to find conservatives in charge and ignoring it, because they are afraid of being called names. Disturbing, but not unexpected given the direction the party is headed (e.g., with immigration).

The links you provide are either to articles describing Islam’s general view on polygamy (1-4 wives permitted as long as you treat them all equally)
Or to one commentator’s explanation on how Islam (like Mormons) forbids practitioners from violating the law, and only allows it if the law forces Muslim’s to break their law, and monogamy isn’t against Islamic law, so therefore the US law against polygamy applies to all Muslims. Basically, 100% in line with the Mormon position. The commentator then goes on to say there are rumors that some mosques allow ‘secret marriages’ but these secret marriages violate the Islamic code’s stance on treating wives equally, therefore, this also is against Islamic law.
You provide no links whatsoever to proof that these rumors are true, or to the legal cases you reference, we have only your word to go on. But at least we do know from the links you provide that the general Islamic community doesn’t appear to support these actions if they are going on.

Unfortunately, most non-Muslims have not come to grips with Islam’s “prophet.” Mohammed, in point of historical fact, was a murderer (often beheading so-called “infidels” himself), thief (his raids on innocent people are well documented and celebrated by Islamic texts themselves), liar (please google “takiyya” and “kitman” – lying is justified in Islam so long as it furthers global Islamic domination), enslaver (the well documented fate of women and children conquered by Muslims, the men usually being beheaded) , slave owner (still practiced in many Islamic countries and I would note that the U.S. slave trade is dwarfed by that of Islam, both being evil), misogynist (women are chattel, worth only half that of a man, a woman can only receive half of her husband’s inheritance (assuming he has only one wife) and, if a woman is raped, a Sharia court will require four male witnesses to the act, something that is nearly impossible and also means that her words are worth 1/4 in an Islamic court than that of a man’s) and pedophile (his youngest wife was six years old, but he was a nice fellow and did not “deflower” her until she was nine [insert sarcasm]). Islam’s teachings and it so-called “prophet” deserve a lot more scrutiny than the current administration or a politically correct media will allow. Islam is a far greater threat to humanity’s freedoms than Communism and Nazism combined. Protecting Islam, given what it teaches and does, is foolish. A two hundred year old reality check:
John Quincy Adams on Islam:??”And he [Jesus] declared, that the enjoyment of felicity in the world hereafter, would be reward of the practice of benevolence here. His whole law was resolvable into the precept of love; peace on earth ñ good will toward man, was the early object of his mission; and the authoritative demonstration of the immortality of man, was that, which constituted the more than earthly tribute of glory to God in the highestÖ The first conquest of the religion of Jesus, was over the unsocial passions of his disciples. It elevated the standard of the human character in the scale of existenceÖOn the Christian system of morals, man is an immortal spirit, confined for a short space of time, in an earthly tabernacle. Kindness to his fellow mortals embraces the whole compass of his duties upon earth, and the whole promise of happiness to his spirit hereafter. THE ESSENCE OF THIS DOCTRINE IS, TO EXALT THE SPIRITUAL OVER THE BRUTAL PART OF HIS NATURE.” (Adam’s capital letters)
ìIn the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad], the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE (Adam’s capital letters)Ö.Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrantÖWhile the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men.î
Polygamy is used as demographic conquest in the fascist death cult.

ever notice that it’s often the people who seem be Jewish who seem to be whining the loudest about Muslims in America? of course not all Jews are doing it, far from it, but there is a pattern here.
take an example, Dennis Prager on the new Muslim in Congress being sworn in on a Koran. if anyone of another religion had faced such an outcry, say a Zoroastrian or a Sikh, Jews would be the loudest speaking up in his or her defense. after all, Baron Rothchild, Disraeli’s good friend, was kept out of Parliament for years on similar grounds.

Prepare yourselves my friends! Polygamy will undoubtedly be mainstream in America and the world in just 20 short years….It is badly needed in America, the world! To arrest a man for having a second wife, legitamizing children born of that bond, as opposed to that same man facing no legal consequence for having a mistress and fathering children is outrageous! The Judeo Christian paradim is crumbling, Face it, Christanity is a dyimg religion, meaning God is not breathing life into it. Islam(COMPLETE SURRENDER TO GOD) is now the worlds biggest religion and still the world’s fastest growing with no signs of letting up, what apple pie is to America, Polygamy is to Islam. Its an istitution ordained by God as a solution to an imballance of un married women to married men. Even if every unmarried woman married every unmarried man, there would still be millions and millions of unmarried women seeking husbands and legitimate fathers to their children. What are they to do??? I got a good idea, they could all become mistresses and their children bastards? Brilliant Idea!
The tragedy of the Christian community is its failure to see Islam as a true religion of God, and Muhammad(saw) as true Prophet
and because of this breakdown in theological reasoning they fail to see a world being gradually brought under complete surrender to God’s will and his new law (Holy Quran) and the divine institution and solution of polygamy being part the entire evolution! Global, universally accepted Polygamy in 20 years or less… Its simply the will of God…for HIS creation.
