I shared a post yesterday on Pakistan and their adoption of child marriage. We have also witnessed the kidnapping of hundreds of Christian girls who as their captors said “we will sell them in the market by Allah.” This is a common practice, one that is at the core nothing but pure evil. This is not a practice recommended by God as Islam would have us believe. Children are precious in God’s eyes, not commodities to be traded or used as sex objects. Young girls in the Eastern and mid Eastern countries are given as early as age 6 for marriage.

These are just a few of the stories about this. This is outrageous, I am growing weary of all the propaganda that attempts to cover this or whitewash it as it is a normal practice sanctioned by God. I’ve heard it all, the controversy about whether Mohammed married Aisha when she was 9 or 12, it’s still wrong, it’s evil, and should be stopped. The persecution of children in the Middle East and Africa has to stop. Tolerance of religious beliefs is one thing, but allowing child abuse, sex trafficking, and persecution is another all together. This is absurd in the very least. Evil at it’s core.
Jesus does not tolerate child abuse. Read Matthew 18:6. It’s pretty clear. Children are precious in God’s eyes. I ask how can you condone or sanction any form of this knowing that it is not sanctioned by God?
