A treatise on wife-beating

To think that this is the 21st century. Watch this video: it begins with the words, "If the husband wants to use beatings to treat his wife..."

And really, this is not just about Islam. Religion is merely a codification of the evil that already exists within all of us, to different degrees, and humans are prone to beating others weaker than themselves, whether they are wives, children or helpless animals. If God really existed, the smart thing for Her to do would be to wipe out the entire human race and put the dinosaurs back on earth. At least there would be no hypocrisy and self-righteousness.
