A human rights organization called Fatki that works with refugee and immigrant women who have immigrated to Denmark has discovered that nearly one third of the refugee women the organization provides counseling to are living in a polygamous relationship.
In Denmark, Polygamy is illegal, but it is now being practiced on a more widespread basis by Muslims who are immigrating and choosing to practice Sharia Law instead of the law of Denmark. Because polygamy is illegal, Muslims who have multiple wives are choosing to not register their marriages with Danish authorities.
“Polygamy is forbidden in Denmark, but it is being practiced nonetheless,” Fakti head Lise-Lotte Duch said.
The Copenhagen Post reported on the rise of polygamy in its Danish communities, writing: “Ida Jensen, a social worker with the group, estimates that at least 30 women she has talked to have said their husbands have a second wife. “The women say this is quite a normal practice. They think it is a man’s right according to Islam,” Jensen continued. Although the subject is taboo, according to the women it is okay if a man takes another wife if the first one is incapable of performing her wifely duties.”
Since Islam permits men to have multiple wives, polygamy is a common practice among Muslim families.
However, despite the fact that polygamy is illegal, Danish authorities are having trouble prosecuting Muslims who have multiple wives, due to the fact that majority of the Islamic marriages are taking place under the radar and are not legally registered on paper.
According to Anika Liversage, senior researcher in integration and gender equality at the Danish Center for Social Science Research (VIVE), “It’s difficult to legislate on something that has no legal validity. People can simply go out into the woods and get married according to the law of Odin and Thor.”
Muslim leaders in Denmark said Islamic marriages do not require an imam or license to be performed, and can be conducted by average people.
“We do not hide the fact that it is allowed to have up to four wives in Islam, but we also mention that you cannot be registered with more than one woman according to Danish legislation,” said Mohammad Khani, Imam and teacher at the Imam Ali Mosque in Copenhagen.
In Denmark, Islam is the largest minority religion. A report in 2018 determined that 5.3 percent of the entire Danish population is Muslim, but the percentage has been increasing over the past several years due to mass Islamic immigration.
Canadian BBQ Restaurant Owner is Arrested on Thanksgiving for Providing Food to the Community
This is the new normal.
Lockdown insanity is not just a U.S. phenomenon; it is happening throughout the globe as civil liberties and human dignity are thrown to the curb with COVID mass hysteria used as the excuse.
Earlier today, patriotic business owner Adam Skelly was arrested for operating his restaurant in Canada against technocratic edicts laid down by power-crazed government officials:
BREAKING: Owner Adam Skelly of the Etobicoke barbecue business has been arrested.

Skelly owns Adamson Barbecue in Etobicoke. He faces nine charges of operating his business illegally, including for allowing dining inside of his facility. Skelly is being persecuted by Canadian authorities for wanting to keep his livelihood intact.
Toronto Police Supt. Domenic Sinopoli had threatened Skelly with arrest unless he complied. He followed through with his threat on Thanksgiving.
“We are in a position to stop him . . . tomorrow is another day and we will take enforcement actions, our strategy will change depending on what we’re faced with,” Sinopoli told reporters.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford is the coward who has destroyed the rights of his countrymen, in leadership that some may consider a form of treason.
“You’re putting people’s lives in jeopardy. I try to be nice the first time, but this guy is just totally ignoring public health officials. That’s how this spreads, people are dying from COVID, and he just wants to say forget it? It’s irresponsible and ridiculous,” Ford said.
Canada is arguably outpacing the United States with regards to infringing upon the core rights of its people. Big League Politics has reported on many instances of Canadian tyranny, including how hate speech laws are abused to criminalize Christian pastors for preaching the Gospel:
A Christian pastor named David Lynn was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace with “derogatory comments” on Tuesday for preaching the word of God on a street corner at Church-Wellesley Village in Toronto, ON.
After the disciple of Christ was harassed by a group of unruly protesters, he was hauled off in handcuffs by law enforcement because preaching the Gospel was considered to be a criminal violation.
The LGBT mob cheered on as the man was dragged away in handcuffs, a sign of things to come if their perverse agenda continues unabated…
“It’s unfortunate that I am subject to this kind of discrimination and bullying and marginalization simply for saying God loves you, there is hope for you, I accept you and tolerate you. I shouldn’t be in this position, I didn’t do anything illegal,” Lynn said following his arrest. He is now out on bond.
Lynn was shown on the video saying frequently that “God is love,” and that he doesn’t hate anyone. This didn’t stop the police from apprehending him anyway.
“I didn’t know this was the start of the pride month…I didn’t say anything specific to the LGBTQ community, it’s all on live stream,” he said to reporters.
Lynn believes that the LGBT protesters and other hostile anti-Christians throughout his country want him to “stay in the closet” about his Christian beliefs. His arrest will send a chilling effect to others who want to preach the word of Christ in the liberal-dominated country.
“It looked as though they had an event waiting for me, and they had some form of hatred against me,” Lynn said.
Lynn is now banned from being anywhere near the areas of Bloor Street, Yonge Street, Carlton Street and Jarvis Street on conditions of his bond. He is also banned from being near any Pride event, as he is now a second-class citizen in globalist-occupied Canada.
Meanwhile, the legislature is working to expand laws against free speech, with the “Prohibiting Hate-Promoting Demonstrations at Queen’s Park Act, 2019,” being considered by Ontario lawmakers. It would ban any demonstration, rally or other activity that is deemed hateful by the government from being permissible on legislative grounds. If you don’t think that will apply to Christian speech, just ask David Lynn.
If Western Civilization does not survive, the scientific dictatorship set up in its wake will be the most ghastly regime in world history.
