Top Saudi cleric OK with paedophilia

The act of child marriage is nothing new particularly in some countries that seem to think it's completely normal, but a top Saudi cleric has just said it's OK to wed girls as young as 10 years old.

This particular cleric is in the spotlight because he refused to annul the marriage of an 8 year old girl to a 47 year old 'man'. The lawyer of the girls mother said "the marriage was arranged by her father to settle a debt with a close friend."

In this authors humble opinion, any Father willing to trade his daughters body and innocence to settle a debt is undeserving of the title 'Father' and certainly shouldn't have the right to breed. Furthermore, any 'man' willing to accept an underage girl as payment isn't a man at all - he's a paedophile.

The cleric is quoted:

"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."

Let's explore that last statement for a moment. Since when has treating the opposite sex fairly (or equally) been on a Saudi mans agenda? Does anyone think a 10 year old Saudi girl will be happy such a decision was made on her behalf while she is being raped by an old man?

While I'm sure this relates to some barbaric ancient old religious Saudi tradition, call me a sceptic but I see it as nothing more than an excuse for old Saudi paedophiles to legally keep having sex with little girls.

Get your facts straight. The judge made the guy sign a pledge saying he cant have sex with her until she reaches puberty.

...in response to this comment by Zadhman. My facts are fine, and judging by your comment you don't see an obvious problem. I might just put that down to your ignorance, but let me be the first of many who will point out that you've just inadvertently admitted to being OK with paedophilia.

Girls have been known to reach puberty as young as 12. Are you confusing puberty with the age of consent? Or do you really think having sex with 12 year old girls is OK?

That's their tradition as deluded and dumb as it is. I'm sure they draw the line somewhere...maybe at 9 year old girls where it is frowned upon...but 10 year aged is still acceptable.

Be it backwoods f@ckers in the deep south or archaic religious zealots of the middle east, it's a bullshit game of justifying domination over women and children.

"The Judge MADE the guy 'sign' a pledge"...yeah dude, like that's gonna stop him. That's about as good as putting a restraining order on a starving homeless guy at a buffet.

When reason is sacrificed for dogmatic ways, we all suffer. Hence the battle continues.

This is so disgusting and abhorrent!

What sort of life belies these little girls?
A Sudonese friend of mine was circumcised at 9 years old (before she came to Australia) It was done without anaesthetic and by the village witch doctor. She will have to have multiple operations before she can even have some sort of "normal" sex life. I wonder if circumcision is still practiced in Saudi Arabia as well as obviously child mollestation is.

We may have mobile camera/phones, digital TV, and MP3 players but we still treat children and women in the Mid East like shit! It is now 2009!

...in response to this comment by Zadhman. So in your mind it's ok to purchase an eight year old girl and hold her for the rest of her life (or until she become too old to be attractive... say what, around age 14?? At which time you can just throw acid in her face and dump her on the street??) as long as you don't have sex with her until she is around 12??

Yeah, I can see how that's a totally acceptable position to take on the issue.

Sane person: "So, you have no problem with paedophilia?"
Insane Cleric: "No I did not say that. I said it's OK to wed a 10 year old girl and not have sex with her until she hits puberty"
Sane person: "But what if the girl hits puberty at 11? Can her husband still rape her?"
Insane Cleric: "You are putting words in my mouth. It is not considered rape when the girl is in puberty. She will have sex with him because it is her husbands wish."
Sane person: "What if it was your own daughter?"
Insane Cleric: "Our traditions are more important than human rights. I would have no problem handing over my daughter as payment for a heard of goats. As long as our traditions are upheld."
Sane person: "What if it was customary in my culture to rape Saudi men with a pineapple? Would your human rights come into play there?"
Insane Cleric: "We are not talking about your customs, we are talking about a young girls right to be raped - I mean married - to a paedophile - I mean to an honorary gentleman."
Sane person: "May the fleas of a thousand camels infect your pubic region"

It's all very well to complain about these issues but when it comes to doing something about it - Zippo.
The action to stamp this act and many other acts out has to come from the people who practice the traditions.
When the Governments who think that the male is dominant over females and children come to realise that being male is not being GOD then you will read and hear about all these things happening well into the next century and beyond.
Thousands of years of practice will not stop until people are willing to stop it! After all this time it doesnÂ’t look like they are willing to change.
This happens in many countries not just the Middle East so it is a world matter.
The world should take action against all human rights abuses not just talk about it year after year!

Saudi Arabia; is perhaps the most backwards, twisted and mentally disturbed place on this planet.
One day, in dozens of years, maybe even 50 years from now, Saudi Arabia will pay a massive price for the odious crimes against humanity.

...in response to this comment by Zadhman. You disgusting piece of horse manure. Puberty is defined as the age when a boys or girl's body begins its capability for reproduction. For some girls, this refers to their first period, for others, it refers to the the surges of oestrogen that begin to sculpt the young girl's physique and turn her into the pre-teen from hell!

My daughter, at the age of ten, has now begun puberty. By your culture's ignorant stupidity, that qualifies her for slavery in your convoluted institution of marriage.

All that this judge has done is legitimise sex slavery of a young girl. A girl that should not even be thinking about boys in that way, and yet you have forced her to. This girl has had her basic human right to freedom and safety taken away by her bastard father, her slave master husband and a religious fuckbag nut.

It is this one act that totally and entirely makes Islam illegitimate.

Regardless, it's not like you can just assume that the person is going to break the law as much as you can keep criminals in jail after their term has been served because when you take recidivism rates into consideration, they're likely to offend again.

Also, I am ok with pedophilia, but only if pedobear is the perpetrator.

...in response to this comment by Shamen67. It's one of those lame internet memes. Basically it's a cartoon bear that hangs out with children. Not really funny at all.

On topic, if this was 2,000 years ago when people lived to only 23 or so, maybe it would be alright. Huge emphasis on maybe. Just to play devil's advocate here, has anyone asked the girl how she feels about it? I'm putting money on she's not happy about it, but just asking. If my mom could've sold me to a hot broad, I'd do it :P

...in response to this comment by Jim. I don't think it matters what she wants. She is 10 years old and incapable of making an informed decision. There is no way she understands what she would be commiting to. Besides, what bothers me more is that the older guy, the community and their religious leaders don't seem to have a problem with essentially forcing a 10/11/12 year old girl to have sex with a man old enough to be her grandfather, never mind her father.

This is a sick situation any way you look at it. It is shameful and is totally evil. It goes against every fiber of our being.

To Zadhman:
I would assume you are a Muslim because you don't find this type of marriage as being a gross violation of that poor girl's life. Let's assume she doesn't have to have sex until she reaches puberty. Age 11 or 12 .... ! Can you imagine the terror of that little girl in the years before she has to have sex with an old man? As she is being told day in and day out that she is no longer a child and has to be the WOMAN! That's disgusting! Even animals in nature don't try to rape the young. I say rape because I see only one consenting adult in this so called relationship.

The reason why I said you were a Muslim is because all good Muslims want to aspire to be like their profit and do as he did. Muhammed took a little 6-year old girl as his wife and had sex with her when she was 9-years old. I am sure the 47-year old fart won't wait to rape that little girl. Where, are the UN Human Rights people when these things happen? Or the women's rights groups. Not a peep!

I want to say that. I have been to the Middle East & have toured through the radical areas. I have Muslim friends as well but they draw the line when it comes to child exploitation. They, don't check their brain at the door when they read the koran. And, the same goes for all people that are from any of the other religions. Common sense and respect for all people no matter who they are. This is a good starting point in judging if you are a good human or not.

Those, who take advantage of the very young or very old. Are, living in a moral vacuum!

Hell ! How can a person trade his own flesh & blood like this?? He has to be lesser than an animal to do so...The people who give religious sanctions to such things are even worst...Hey!! Calling them animals is kind of an insult to animals..They don't do such stuff..I respect & love Qoran more than my own breath but in the history of Islam there is only one instance that has left Islam in a question forever..Had it not been Mohammed marying Aisha, we may have found a way to correct these things but the point is that it did happen..No matter what were the reasons behind it, but it has led to these paedophiles gaining a sanction to do it...The arrow is out of the bow and is going to harm more sisters and daughters than we could imagine in our worst nightmares..The questions that haunts is that what are we going to do about it?Zadhman...May Allah enlighten your poor, senseless and unconscious soul....AAAMMMMEEEENNNNN

We westerners start with the gospel of "john" as the prima facie of bull shit and then deny we have a gnostic religion. Of course, that gave us the reason to kill, maim and rape 6 million or so folk.

Its a thing that fundamentalists need repeating.. Christianity kills...

To be frank? religion has its good points.. the only one i can think of is to keep its adherents as law abiding citizens.
