“The important thing is that the girl is ready and can tolerate marriage,”?????? And who will judge that????

"the girl is ready and can tolerate marriage"...Is a marriage something to "tolarate"?!?!

One of the main criteria for marriage suitability in this religious argument is "ability to take husband's weight". Anything else is it appears, is a minor detail.

It is the same as legalized rape. Horrible that these girls will be seen as objects to be used and abused.

Pedophilia and abuse of women is par for the course for these cretins. Under the Muslim Brotherhood things are only going to get worse in Egypt.
Just heard the World Bank is giving them $6 Billion in aid. Now that sends the right message, doesn't it?

Mohammed set the standard, he sexually abused a baby girl, married her at 6 years and raped her at 9. Nowadays he would be sent for counselling with a sex addict group or restrained in a mental institution!

For those who applauded the overthrow of Mubarak, all I can offer is a big, fat, I TOLD YOU SO. Think very carefully before buying any group's insistence that they support peace and general decency. Their standards for these two qualities are often far different from anything we would consider acceptable. It is also critical to remember that THIS WOULD NOT BE HAPPENING WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT WHICH WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN TOPPLING MUBARAK who was far from perfect, but offered a much more safe and equal society than exists in Egypt today.

Thank you David Anderson - I had the same thought reading the article.

This is what happens when the wealthy Egyptians hog up to four wives each. There are few brides left of a decent age for the less advantaged Muslims, so they resort to marrying little girls.

Not only that, the Egyptian Muslims have been carrying out kidnappings of Coptic Christian women, raping them, forcing them to convert to Islam and not letting them leave. These are the bitter fruits of Islam.

If anyone opens the Inner Eye of the Spirit even a tiniest sliver and perceives what is truly Holy, then that person will never consider harming any part of this creation at all. No being would suffer, no person, no part of the Earth Mother.

Arab Liberals have lamented the US and West support of the Muslim Brotherhood taking of these so-called 'Arab Spring' countries. Why didn't they support the ones who are truly for real democracy and freedom, including freedom of religion, speech, conscience and press and the protection of minority rights instead of the Islamists who want to see Islamic law enforced?

These twits are NOT 'radical', they are true believing Orthodox Muslims who are obeying Islamic teachings to the letter. Mohammed, as mentioned above, 'married' and had sex with a 6 y/o child and his deity condoned this barbaric practice, so it is NOT radical for Muslims to practice it too. Mohammed was said to be the 'perfect man' and all Muslims are to emulate his example.

No Muslims can or will renounce these awful teachings because to do so makes them apostates and that is a death sentence in this religion of 'peace and tolerance' (Not).

"He went on to protest proposed laws protecting women from violence, warning that if allowed to pass husbands could be prosecuted for beating their child brides or forcing themselves upon them.

“If you have intercourse with your wife against her will, she will be able to file a complaint against you,” he said. “That’s where things are headed.”

No ..this isn't "resorting" to little gils (babies)... this is mohammed.. this is FINE candy.. like the little boys' ass; this is 2 degrees of darkness in the pits of bondage... pedophilic slavery,only a shadow away from seeing these babies as STOCK.. to be husbanded..Sexuallized even as animals are.. the borders, boundaries are melted in hell and this represents the spirit of islam .. they cannot fathom the integrety of another . the other is to be raped by whatever means, and enslaved, inseminated and made to bend to their god of shadows.. they fly well by night with their allies.. those mistaken in believing the lies and denying the truth set before them; will be somehow treated well.. beware usefuls of the world... you aid and abet EVERY thing you often claim to stand against... ..stay away from the perfumes of her tents.. the smell of blood is sweet....these are the dark traditions of the flesh generationally reinforced by all manner of denial, deceit,destruction AND debauchery... with the veils of religiosty their covering their their fruits... by their fruits....

Jesus is Lord.....Islam is antichrist.... 1 John 2:22,23... HE is the GOOD Shepherd...The Son of God..
