  1. I am not sure why this has anything to do with polygamy, because honour killings occur irrespective of marriage? Secondly, I am nor sure why monogamy is not attacked on the same basis, seeing that many hundreds of women are murdered by their husbands within the so-called Christian monogamous societies of Western Europe and North America – for all sorts of spurious reasons?

  2. True, but interesting, as are many of your posts. I read through the
    past entries over the past week or two, and I must say I
    think I’m infatuated.
