    We may be forced to allow countries to do something we feel is wrong, but that in noway means we have to respect it.

    Amen to that. There is no way I can respect pedophilia under any circumstances.

    Very true. Maybe respect was the wrong word to use.

    But we either respect the right to practice whatever religion we wish to or we do not? I am not saying we must agree with it but respect the right to it since that is one thing we pride ourselves on here in this country.

    I thought we pride ourselves at being peaceful towards other countries and their right to their own cultures and religions.

    I see what your getting at. I think we must draw a line somewhere. I just saw in the news this morning that the girl from slum dog millionaire was for sale by here father. A Saudi sheik had the bidding up to $300,000. I tell you this is totally disgusting.

    Young Saudi girl's marriage ended

    Media reports say an arranged marriage between a Saudi girl aged eight and a man in his 50s has been annulled, in a case attracting worldwide criticism.

    The Saudi Gazette says the annulment was agreed in an out-of-court settlement after a judge rejected two attempts to grant the girl a divorce.

    The case prompted Saudi officials to say it would start regulating the marriages of young girls.
