Quote# 61432

A Saudi Arabian judge recently ruled for the second time that an arranged marriage between a 47-year-old man and an 8-year-old girl was legal and binding.

[...]

Shiekh Addul Aziz Al-Shiekh, the kingdom’s grand mufti, recently reaffirmed the practice in remarks to the public: “It is incorrect to say that it’s not permitted to marry off girls who are 15 and younger. A girl aged 10 or 12 can be married. Those who think she’s too young are wrong and they are being unfair to her.”

“We hear a lot in the media about the marriage of underage girls,” continued Al-Shiekh. “We should know that Sharia law has not brought injustice to women.”

You know what it's called when you force an 8 year old girl to marry a 47 year old man? INJUSTICE.

“We should know that Sharia law has not brought injustice to women.”
There is one too many "not" in that sentence. If it's justice, then let's treat men this way too.

Unfair to her? Unfair to HER??? He's old enough to be her grandfather, she has NOTHING in common with a middleaged man. She should be playing with dolls and learning to read and write.

Doesn't the Quran say that women can only be married off after they start mensturating?

It might be "permitted", but that only means that the laws are cruel and inhuman.

Meh. No marriage taken place and the case will now be hard by the appeals court. Read the actual CNN article, not someones interpretation of it.

"Doesn't the Quran say that women can only be married off after they start mensturating?"

I'm quite sure it's ok to marry, but not to fuck the kid until she has had her period. *Cough*, of course the honourful muslim men faithfully adhere to that rule.

@Kinderklein:

Actually, the Quran says women and girls cant be married without their permission. I dont think this is a marriage. From what I understand, its just an agreement that when she reaches 18 or so she will marry him. These are commonplace in the East, not just Muslim countries. Ofcourse, she can decline to marry when the actual time comes. The problem seems to be that she has to be the one to decline the marriage, not someone else on her behalf.

Those who think she’s too young are wrong and they are being unfair to her.

I have a problem with arranged marriage, anyway. There are many things in life you can't avoid, but marriage shouldn't be it.

Meanwhile, in a galaxy far, far away, where aliens live that are capable of making an informed decision by the age of 8, are not coerced by their parents and other family members, and are not treated as property and bought and sold if they are female, Sharia law has not brought injustice to women.

Is this muslim secretly a Catholic priest?

Why have Fudies of all religions such a problem with the term of "informend consent"? Even if it is just an "arranging marriage when she becomes 18" this is just wrong and dehumanizes the girl to a thing, which can be bantered by the men of her family.

Okay okay. So a forced marriage between one consenting man and a little girl who has no say is okay...

...but a loving consentual marriage between two of the same gender is gravely wrong and should be punishable by stoning to death.

Nice to see the Muslims have their priorities in order.

wait, its ok to marry a ten year old, 8 is younger than ten.

Plus this isn't injustice to a woman. This is injustice to a small child.

Consent you goofy fucker. Consent! She can't give it so, while it may be legal, it certainly shouldn't be.

Sounds to me like you've got your eye on someone already and you're just paving the way for yourself. That's it, isn't it? You sly old dog you.

Where the fuck have you been? On vacation or something? Look around you, dumbass.

Why can't reincarnation be real, just so this guy could be reincarnated as a girl who at 8 is married off to a 47-year-old man?
