Be Fruitful and Multiply, But Enough is Enough!!!

I understand the concept of the biblical passage of “be fruitful and multiply“. But I begin to question the wisdom/sanity of any man who already has eight wives (in a country that has banned polygamy) and states he is considering seeking a ninth wife. And I understand the desire for a large family. In fact I think large families are a great idea for a rich or a poor family. However, it is also my belief that anyone, rich or poor, such as Israeli Shahadeh Abu Arrar (who lives in a poverty region), who has sixty-seven children with eight wives, should be less fruitful at multiplying mini-mes. It would be enough of a problem properly raising eight kids – much less trying to nurture sixty-seven children from assorted wives. Yet he has an average of over eight kids per wife and wants to increase his family size. As the late baseball broadcaster Harry Caray, would have said, Holy Cow, though I am sure he would have had a great time trying to pronounce all their names backwards! Heck you could not even begin to remember all their names, much less be a father figure to them all. And there is no way for him to properly feed, clothe and educate that size of a brood, unless he is Bill Gates. Please, enough is enough, someone get that man a vasectomy; so he can quit flooding the gene pool with children that are doomed to suffer the despairs of poverty because he is unable to conquer his competitive reproduction fanaticism.

Whew, now that I have that rant off my mind, following is a fun link I found posted at Greta Wire about; the top ten women drivers of the year! (My finding great humor in that link is probably why Mr. Abu Arrar has already been married eight times more than I have.) I seem to remember George Noory reminiscing about being guilty of an action similar to what earned the number five award.



  1. Wow – I can’t believe he has that many children. I would have no problem with it if he could take care of them on his own.

  2. Is this gonna Kill You? No i Dont Think so !

  3. Black mamba the man has no discernible way of taking care of those children. He is endangering them and yes his careless actions endanger others. Those kids have to eat and live. If they have no support structure at home that means they are either on the street or will be on the streets. It would not surprise me to find out that he had them on the streets begging or committing crimes to feed his own belly.

  4. Snarky the article suggests he has no visible means of taking care of any of those children. Plus he is looking to add to his brood with another wife. Nor is he alone in this competition, the article talked of one man in the region that was predicting to reproduce 100 kids before he dies.
