Wife beating in islam

Debate on Qatar TV

Only a rod will help!

QURAN 4:34 - "Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them. Surely God is high, supreme."

  1. The Koran says if a child is disobedient "beat them"?
    At least it's slightly better than the Bible that says kill them.

    Both are completely wrong and uncalled for. How about compromise, instead of violence? Guiding instead of forcing, raising a discussion instead of a fist?

    Thank god I'm an Atheist (yes there is a joke in there, it's right before "I'm"). Logic instead of Dogma.
