You need to get an education, I'm sorry one has not been provided to you Get of your high horses, and leave the USA alone already.
Just because it is tradition doesn't make it right. These are children who never have a say in their own future. Not having any kind of education isn't an excuse! I am a Psychologist trained in both Domestic violence and child abuse and you would be surprised at how many of these cultural practices are linked to Honor Killings. Don't forget that Mohammed, the Muslim "prophet", who is regarded by Muslims as the perfect example for mankind, married a girl when she was just 6, and consummated that marriage when she was just 9.
Mohammed was in his 50s. This disgusting practice won't soon fade in the world. Bullet to the head. I might point out that the average life expectancy was less than half of what it is today. I might also point out that currently A. That's years, by the way.

August 6, at 7: United States or not the US. I does not matter. A four year old girl being married to a grown man. Even 11 years old to a grown man is sick. Dont care if its been part of the culture for a million years. We will pray for them in the US. August 6, at 8: August 6, at 9: Admittedly, this often meant they were 13, 14, 15 instead of 9, 10, 11, but the primary point was that the girl was capable of childbearing. A family that can't afford to keep themselves fed will happily marry off a daughter or two so that someone else becomes responsible for them.
A large, older man penetrating a young girl? She has no breasts, probably hasn't even begun her period yet and no one questions this? August 7, at If you can even find an argument as to why this is race related or any excuse to why this is acceptable you shouldn't be breathing.
I'm from the USA but I am un-American with the ways of power and the selling out of its people to communism E August 7, at 9: I keep seeing "girls are expensive and a burden" but how are you expecting girls, women to be viable when they are yanked from school at 6 to "marry" become a slave to some unknown man?

If religion or culture is the cause therefore that wasn't really true one may be is evil one. Your use of the word "retard" cancels out any kind of validity that your post might have had. Or did your lips get tired? I dont care whether u r Abraham lincoln. For your information Islam and Muslim will be protected by almighty god.
What about the Christians and Hindus noted in the article or didn't you read the whole article? We have allowed it to go on for years.. People in glass houses should not start throwing rocks, Let's clean up our own backyard first! It's in the third world countries where culture and tradition still stands.
