    You know you bring up something I find interesting. I'm betting our experiences in Catholicism might be both similar and very different depending upon our gender. It might make a good topic to discuss.

    Well it depends on what religion you are talking about. The two most popular ones, generally speaking, Christianity and Islam are very much against the idea of god have a wife, let alone a harem.

    Even the idea of making god similar to humans, while I do understand where they are coming from, I wish they would have been more specific. Heck, if you divide Christians into Catholics and all the rest, Islam would be the biggest monotheistic religion and it specifically opposes the idea that god is like a human or any other thing we know in this universe. That's one of the points it made against the pagans back in the day.

    So I wish a little more of homework would have been done for this article. It is still very interesting though. And I feel it applies more to pagan traditions, especially when you look at Egyptian, Greek and even Hindu traditions.

    Do they not, then, ponder about the Qur‘an? Had it been from someone other than Allah, they would have found in it much discrepancy. [4:82]

    Methinks you mistook what was intended as a model to be literal...
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.
