Map Accuracy?[edit]

The map notes say "India, Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and Sri Lanka:legal for Muslims only," but those countries represent 3/4 colors from the key. At the very least, Sri Lanka's dark blue color contradicts that statement (and Eritrea's contradicts note 2), and it brings into question the accuracy of the map as a whole.

Polygamy is illegal in Myanmar since 2015 . M P Htoo (talk) 02:44, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

@Johnbod:

The image is not obscure. Jacob is a notable biblical figure, and every Christian, Jew, and Muslim who reads their Scriptures know about him.Setabepiw3547747 (talk) 01:38, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

Not only that, rabbis, priests, and imams talk about him in churches, synagogues and mosques, where every member of the Abrahamic religions can hear them. Setabepiw3547747 (talk) 02:11, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
@Johnbod:, could you care to reply to this talk page please?Setabepiw3547747 (talk) 05:21, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
You're just wrong; the incident, and its relevance to polygamy, will be very obscure to most readers. UI notice a lot of your bold postings of images are running into trouble, and not just from me. Johnbod (talk) 13:39, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
Well, since Wikipedia is meant for the intelligent layman, most Abrahamic readers would be knowedgeable enough about Jacob. The nation Israel even gets its name from him. Strong point about the relevance to polygamy though. Thanks for the commentary!Setabepiw3547747 (talk) 01:48, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
Wait, now that I think about it, obscurity is not even an argument, since the purpose of WIkipedia is to inform! What do you have to say about this?Setabepiw3547747 (talk) 05:42, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
Setabepiw3547747, per WP:LEADIMAGE, Johnbod is correct. You keep adding religious and mythology images all over as lead images, even at the Liberty article. You need to think about lead images more carefully, and keep in mind what I stated about them on your talk page. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 11:31, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Minor edit[edit]

Changed "polygamy is currently illegal" to "polygamy is illegal" in the United States. The "currently" seemed extraneous. Cheers. Thelastauroch (talk) 09:31, 24 August 2018 (UTC)Thelastauroch
