Maggie, I commented elsewhere that I've seen YouTube videos by muslim imams who claim that marriages to children can be negotiated or baby girls as young as One Year Old. That this practice continues to be tolerated in islamic cultures to this day is nothing short of despicable. It and the clerics who support it should be called out and condemned, FULL STOP.
What can we do about it?....
I didn't want to believe this was a statement, so I researched Bilal Philips. I was hoping that he was just saying that it was acceptable 1500 years ago, but not today as times have changed. Horrifyingly I found the you tube video where the quote came from, and he says that child marriages are "legitimate" today. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SfUKGp4iMg
This one made me feel very nauseated...seriously heaving.
