    I know that this tends to happen in African and Middle Eastern areas. I once read a news article of an 80-year-old man who married a 12-year-old as his fourth wife.

    But then again women don't have the same expectations as they do in the U.S. Here, they are expected to have job skills and a career of their own to pursue while their children are off at school. In those societies, women are expected to bear children for their husband and keep house. Parents also marry their girls off young because they don't want to bear the cost of feeding them any more.

    Are you sure there aren't other cultural reasons for marrying them off young?

    I'm sure there are. That just one among many.

    No, you're confused. You have no idea what you're talking about. Read through the thread and the conversation I was in.

    Congrats, your made my list of not worthy to debate an issue with.
    Thank God.

    It's a step in the right direction to castrate them, if that's not enough, then cut off the appendage itself or just eliminate them. They are monsters, who destroys the child's life if they survive it physically. They will and can never be cured. Ever.
    Hang them in public - I'm sure the family of the victims would concur.
    People like you are more dangerous to me than a child molester. You are acting out of outrage and emotion rather than rational thinking. That makes you dangerous. Castration does not work and you still want to do it. Why?

    Hanging them is at least a logical solution to the problem. But both of these punishments were ruled cruel and unusual by the Supreme Court. So yes, that would be a moral stance.

    In reality, if you keep them away from children most of them are no danger otherwise. Life sentence in a minimum security prison or mental institution, with no access to children, and perhaps they can actually be productive members of society.

    Now I get why. Someone has some personal experience?

    As Edward Koch once said:

    "It is by exacting the highest penalty for the taking of human life that we affirm the highest value of human life."

    Pro Capital Punishment Page

    If we execute murderers and there is in fact no deterrent effect, we have killed a bunch of murderers

    - John McAdams - Marquette University/Department of Political Science, on deterrence

    "Punishment is the way in which society expresses its denunciation of wrong doing; and, in order to maintain respect for the law, it is essential that the punishment inflicted for grave crimes should adequately reflect the revulsion felt by the great majority of citizens for them. It is a mistake to consider the objects of punishments as being a deterrent or reformative or preventive and nothing else... The truth is that some crimes are so outrageous that society insists on adequate punishment, because the wrong doer deserves it, irrespective of whether it is a deterrent or not."

    Lord Justice Denning, Master of the Rolls of the Court of Appeals in England said to the Royal Commission on Capital Punishment in 1950

    I'm not arguing against the death penalty.

    You're the second person to not read the thread carefully enough to see what my comment really meant.

    Youd think youd be used to it by now, mister.

    Incorrect. I was talking with Catz and then you made a comment to me. Either make your point again, if you decide to engage with a new person that has no knowledge of your previous argument or expect to be misunderstood and be gracious and then explain your argument. To say that I did not read carefully is sidestepping your responsibility and sign of immaturity or lack of debating skills...
