The really, truly True Believer™ of the Month Award July 2011
Unusually there was one clear winner this month but the surprise fades away when one realizes why as it is yet another example of Religion being involved in the sexual abuse, and justification and/or cover up of the sexual abuse, of Children.
Despite some votes going to Austria for acknowledging the religious rights of it’s citizens to follow their Flying Spaghetti Monster religion by wearing a colander on their head in their Driving license photos…. and to Poland for hosting a meeting of Exorcists against Vampires…. top spot was taken this month by a new Saudi Fatwa that defends Pedophilia as “Marriage”.
Dr. Salih bin Fawzan the issuer of this particular fatwa is keeping his options wide open by declaring that even girls „in the cradle“ are old enough to be married off.
One can only hope that the rest of the world continues to be able to tell the difference between the words Pedophilia and Marriage. And between the words consummate and rape. And will realize that people like Mohammad did not “consummate” a marriage with a 9 year old. He raped her.
The sick pedophiles concerned simply declare that sex is not permitted until the child is “capable”. One wonders whether they have any concern for the child’s capability to refuse.
