More on The Polygamy Ad

Following up on my last post, it seems I wasn't the only person to notice the advert for polygamy. Harav Rozen, who is in charge of Shabat Be'shabato which run the ad responded by stating that the advertising in the leaflet is run by an outside advertising company without his screening.  He also jokingly claimed that when he first saw the ad he thought it was meant as a satire of the book "Torat Hamelech" - in stating halachic claims that are baseless. "What is next" he asks "A store selling human flesh with a hechsher? Perhaps a Aron Kodesh (A place where the torah is kept)  with a dual use function - as an Aron and a Chicken coop for laying special holy eggs? Halachic sources permitting will be produced at a later date".
