Ain't it a shame to beat your wife on a Sunday
Ain't it a shame
Ain't it a shame to beat your wife on Sunday
When you got Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Oh Thursday, Friday, Saturday

This makes me wonder why more S&M fetishists aren't Muslims.

You may now strike the bride from chest level.

There's (at least one) whole channel of this, some of them even speak in English. Beards seem to be a pretty major topic, the Koran is surprisingly specific about them it seems.
Actually one of them was an Indonesian guy with a very sparse beard. Apparently the official Sunni beard is a full growth on the chin and a clipped moustache and sideburns, with short hair, while Shiites can wear a kind of designer stubble without any theological issues. Ahmadis don't seem too worried about beards at all. I'm not sure about Sufis, although I suspect they are quite laid back too.

We do our part by honoring muslims with hellfire missles and anal rape. It's all good.

Consider though: before this codifying of what was and wasn't acceptable in the beating of your wife, things were much worse. Mohammed was trying to improve the state of wife-beating.
It is sad when rationalising a gender-centric punishment is the only way to control it. What is sadder is that some elites with a lot invested in their religion believe that now should be just like the 900's.
I think that is what ultimately separates Islam (middle-eastern variety) from most other belief systems (Hindu as a possible exception, but again middle-eastern). Most other belief system's leadership has adjusted to match the times. There are always fringe elements that are radical, but the "party-line" has been changed over time to match socially acceptable behavior or rationalized into a less eccentric form.
Let's be fair, Christ and his ministry were more or less an outgrowth of a poor culture that had seen better days and was basically being forced to learn to adapt to the globalizing activities of the the Roman Empire, had he actually been a military Messiah, his cult would have been fairly swiftly smashed and it would have been remembered as a political movement, if remembered at all. The best thing Christianity had, as opposed to other nascent religions of the time, was that it appealed to the poor (due to a removal of the need for sacrifices, which were costly), it had promises of a better life following this one (which is attractive to a poor Roman provincial) and it was largely inoffensive to the Roman populace at large, with the exception of the Imperial cultus. It was in a good niche for expansion.
Islam, similarly, had a good niche. It united the warring tribes of a Neolithic society that had only recently started to interact with the Iron Age outside of it's horizons, it introduced a fairly advanced concept of economy, and it made it possible to live in a frankly inhospitable part of the planet with at least the insurance that even if water was tight, you were still within pilgrimage distance of a place with water, where you knew you wouldn't be abused.
Christianity is well suited to the European environment and Islam is well suited to the Middle Eastern environment. If Christians had introduced rules about wife beating, it would be something we pretend to agree with but ignore anyway, like our cultural opinion on pro-life matters.

It's MEMRI, so for all we know they're talking about raising chickens... even so, this is hilarious.

"Honored them with beatings?! How is this possible?!"

"90% of British women answered an incredibly leading question in a way that justifies felony assault. HOW CAN THIS BE?"

Yea, the U.S. has no domestic beatings at all! We don't beat our women, ever!
See, your Muslim, he'll beat his wife like dis.
But you're average American, he'll go 'head and bash that old lady like dis.

Don't beat her in the face, and do not make her ugly.
Words to live by.
What does that leave you with? Spanking? Punching her in the stomach and on the arms and legs?
Wish I hadn't asked now....

If I created a religion, I would definitely endorse spankings all around. In every kind of human relationship, there would be certain cases in which one party was permitted to spank the other, and vice versa. Capital punishment, naturally, would take the form of the public Death-Spank.
