No shit. What a waste of life, land and justice.

Quote
A 16-year-old Moroccan girl has committed suicide after a judge ordered her to marry her rapist, according to Moroccan media reports.

Last year Amina’s parents filed charges against their daughter’s rapist, a man 10 years older than her but it was only recently that a judge in the northern city of Tangier decided that instead of punishing him, the two must be married.

The court’s decision to forcibly marry Amina to her rapist was supposed to “resolve” the damage of sexual violation against her, but it led to more suffering in the unwelcoming home of her rapist/husband’s family.

Stuff like this is simultaneously tragic, horrid, avoidable and sad.

I wish I could joke about what Santorum would have done or what Limbaugh would have said. But someone died, so I can't.

And of course, by the beliefs those folks live by, she dies over and over again for eternity.

Of course, still probably better than being raped over and over again as 'justice'.

Limbaugh would've called her a slut.  A dirty, dirty whore. 

Both would consider her a sinner who deserves hell, not least for failing to be born into a Christian family.

I'm not joking.

Here is proof that people still live like the Old Testament is something to live by.  Scary if you ask me.  And absolutely ridiculous and sad.

Oh, now should we really be mad at this? Why God wants this! He even demands the man gives 50 shekels! That's fair!

Quote

GOD: "28If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;

 29Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days."

Oh, how he looks after us. Especially women.  &)

How does this make sense in any time period?  I'm going to assume the judge doesn't have a daughter because I couldn't see how any caring parent would want this on their kids.

In the same situation I'd have suicided if I couldn't run away. This is disgusting and horrible and terribly tragic. Old, sexist, patriarchal laws like this royally piss me off. Don't get me started on genital mutilation and other such lovely practices either. Damn it.
If we ever travel thousands of light years to a planet inhabited by intelligent life, let's just make patterns in their crops and leave.

oh, but it's perfectly possible that the judge has a daughter. Quran says that sons are a blessing from Allah ... daughters ... hm, they're ... erm ... not sons. Daughters are something you hang on to until you can sell them off.
Muslims will tell you that women have more rights in islam than in christianity. True, but then again, christians rarely follow the bible to the letter.
Which leaves islam 14 centuries behind the western world when it comes to women's rights.

I don't know which religion gives women the most rights but I do know that secular law is the only one that gives women equal rights and that trumps any and all religions.

Fuck me, there was a part of me that still thought that this was a part of the Old Testament that is ignored these days. Insane.

It may be largely ignored, but it's still printed a billion times over and keeps on being printed.  Christians who promote the Bible are responsible for promoting that piece of it, too.  Unless they want it taken out.  Try getting one to support that sometime.  It's fun.

This thread?  Probably not, but I've seen it elsewhere (Huffington post, Facebook) and the general kickback I see from the heavily religious is that it's all the fault of those horrible barbaric Muslims.  Real American Christians totally condemn stuff like this, also It's Obama's fault somehow.

Dunno what I'd do with that many quatloos anyway.[1]

The headline says it all. Just more reason to rid the world of theism.

oh yes, that's expected.  of course Real American Christians have no idea that their bible advocates teh exact same thing, as we all know.   &)

^As I was reading the comments in the article yesterday, there was a person trying to tell the Christians that their Bible does say a person must marry their rapist.  They even gave them chapter and verse I believe.  It seemed as if the Christians had never heard of it before.

Many of the most hideous things in Islam came from the Buybull that they based the religion on.
