You Might Be a Terrorist If ...

This is your family's home in Peshawar, Pakistan:

This is your home in Shelton, Connecticut:

The world (let alone America) doesn't owe you a living, kid. And certainly doesn't have to support you in the manner you may have become accustomed to.

This is your wedding picture in Pakistan:

This is you and your wife and baby in America:

The New York Times reports that when you insisted your wife start wearing a hijab headscarf and move back with you to Pakistan, she packed up the children and moved back in with her parents.

Way to love, honor, and cherish. Does The Noble Qur'an (English language translation) you left behind in Connecticut say anything about that? I haven't read it but suspect it does. I won't be calling you a radical Islamist, because you don't deserve it.

Regarding "love, honor, and cherish" --- no, the Koran says none of those things. Those concepts are distinct to the Christian New Testament. The Apostle Paul said "husbands love your wives as Christ loved the Church". You will find no similar admonition in the Koran.

It appears that the traditional vow by the groom is "I pledge, in honesty and with sincerity, to be for you a faithful and helpful husband."
