    Regadless of the cause --- this type of behavior is UNACCEPTABLE.

    There is NO DEFENSE for this type of behavior.
    Why do Christians, Hindus and Buddhists take part in child marriages then? Like I have showed it is poverty, not religion.



    In fact the Islamic world doesn't seem to be the leader in child marriages.



    It is unacceptable and hope all countries fight against it. But to blame it on Islam or any religion is inaccurate.

    Ya kinda have to wonder how poor the people are in this particular case if they can afford to go to court more than once about it. Not that poverty has nothing to do with it.

    Sorry If the facts contradict your anti-Islamic views sazerac. Life is full of unwelcome surprises.

    I would have thought jail time for...you know the whole pedophile thing. But I suppose exposure and forced "change" (i.e. the Church shuffling a bunch of people around) is good enough.

    I'm not saying Islam is evil, I'm just saying Mohammed was a pedophile, a pretty logical position to take.
    Wouldn't a pedophile want more than one "child" wife (even though the marriage was planned by her father, her mother raised no questions, and none of the Meccans who harassed Muhammad used it against him)?

    When you're labeling someone a pedophile, shouldn't there characteristics fall in line with the average pedophile

    Like GarzaUK said before, the lifespan of people fluctuates by region and time period.

    And the idea that Muhammad physically consummated the marriage can be debated, as well.

    Prophet Mohammed is not a pedophile.

    To judge him nearly 2,000 years after his actions by 21st century standards of morality which has evolved with our growing knowledge is ridiculous and illogical.

    But hey, your opinion.
    I still love my Prophet.

    Oh come on. It doesn't take 21st century standards to see an 8 year old girl hasn't even started menstruating yet. Even the cavemen could tell that a child is a child.

    Breasts, pubes & blood = woman

    No breasts, pubes & blood = little girl

    It doesn't take a modern mind to figure that one out.

    Btw, there is no proof over the consumation of a marriage

    Maybe in crazy western nations where hormones are given to food sources before being slaughtered and served, but it's not the norm. My kid's 8 year old female friends still think boys are yucky. I cannot imagine any of them being forced to marry a man their dad's age (or grand dad's).

    Not the norm no, i was merely making the point it is not unheard of.

    Well 2,000 years ago, i don't think we knew what damage it would do to a child. It was a chapter of history. It occured, do people think attacking it will somehow turn back the clock to that period?
