Why does any civilized human being blindly follow a Prophet who was a documented mass murderer and pedophile?
I hold adults accountable for the religion they align themselves with. Children usually follow the religion they are born into, and many remain aligned in their adult lives without ever questioning different aspects of that religion. Still, I find it extremely difficult to understand blind followers of Islam in America.
The sexually deviant behavior of Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, is clearly outlined in the Quran. Granted, there are probably as many muslims in America who do not know what is in their Quran as there are Christians who do not know what is in the Bible.
Still, there is so much documented violence and sexual misconduct surrounding Muhammad, it is difficult for me to understand the elevation of this person as someone all Muslims should emulate.
By any realistic measure, Muhammad, the creator of the world’s most sexually restrictive religion was also one of the most sexually indulgent characters in history.
Muhammad had sex with just about anyone he pleased, thanks to Allah’s extraordinary interest in his personal sex life, as immortalized in the Qur’an.
The Quran includes a list of sexual partners that Muhammad was entitled to, sometimes in categories and sometimes in reference to specific persons (ie. Zaynab and Mary).
Muhammad was married to thirteen women, eleven at one time.
He relegated them to either consecutive days or (according to some accounts) all in one night. He married a 9-year-old girl and even his adopted son’s wife.
As if that is not enough, Muhammad had a multitude of slave girls and concubines with whom he had sex – sometimes on the very days in which they had watched their husbands and fathers die at the hands of his army.
I suppose Muslims who have actually read their Quran, and live under the most sexually restrictive religion, justify the behavior of their Prophet by assuming he preached the motto, “Do as I say, not as I do.”
