    A Muslim in Australia apparently decided to marry a 12 year old girl.

    She had reached puberty. Was this not in following with the example of Mo? Although some Imams refused to marry the two, he eventually found one that would.

    So now what? Should we be intolerant of Islam and Muslims because things like this happen? what should that intolerance look like?

    have the westboro baptists stopped screaming at american soldiers' funerals that the deceased, someone who died in service of their country (for whatever reasons), will go to hell?

    No surprise.

    The man is just following his religion's male role model.

    You're missing the point.

    It is quite simple: let me sketch you a flow diagram, ok?

    1. Mohammed married a child.
    2. Mohammed is the male role model of a religion.
    3. Followers of that religion try to be live according to that role model.

    Is the *real* learning from this non-isolated issue now clearer to you?

    I can draw it with crayons for you, if not

    In the Bible, Jesus says that if someone asks you for money, you should give it to them. Unfortunately, I am still waiting for the thousand dollars I asked from whodey. I guess people only live by their "role models" when it suits them.

    It depends upon your view of intolerance.

    Is it intolerant of Australia to make consenting age above 12 since it seems to be Islam's religious tradition?

    Why are they so intolerant?

    For the record, the child in question had reached puberty, so what exactly is wrong with this again?

    Why is there not outrage regarding religious intolerance?

    Those here defended Mo by stating that he waited till his 9 year old bride got her pubes, so what is wrong with this exactly?

    Simple: the right of the 12 year old outweighs the right of a religious nutcase.

    Now, can you answer my question?

    TOPIC: Muslim married to 12 year old
    “A Muslim in Australia apparently decided to marry a 12 year old girl.”


    REBUTTALS:
    "have the westboro baptists stopped screaming at american soldiers' funerals that the deceased, someone who died in service of their country (for whatever reasons), will go to hell?"

    "have the KKK revised their agenda? are they know filled with love, compassion and decency?"

    "The man is just following his religion's male role model."

    "we don't judge a group of people by what some individuals do. how many muslims do not marry 12 year olds? do you know?"

    "In other news, someone with dark eyes did something bad.
    Those damn dark-eyed people."


    Glaring examples accismus by alogism. Constructing a rebuttal by illogical use of anthypophora. Who in hell actually populates these threads? Absolutely unbelievable.
