It seems there is a legal process in Austria these days against a woman who does not like the teachings of Islam, who has read the book and learned the issues around it, and who has talked to other people about what she thinks it means.
I’m attaching some information about the day in court, not sure that it is an exact exrept of the legal discussion and the verdict, but I think this makes the whole thing very clear. Talking about what someone may or may have not wanted or might have done, when this someone is now dead for centuries, and attributing serious meaning to whatever is being said about that person (if he ever walked the face of earth) as well as the implications of any or every move he did or did not make… to me this is nuts.
Pay attention to the root of the discussion –
The judgment against the defendant is a €480 fine.
The judge second-guessed the Koran by saying Aisha was 18. She evidently noted that Aisha was 18 years old when Mohammed died, which is factual. The implication is that because he did not divorce her after she became above legal age, he was not a pedophile.
She says it’s not pedophilia, because Mohammed had no exclusive desire for underage girls; he wanted any female he could get his hands on.
By implication, the child marriages so prevalent in hardcore Islamic countries cannot be legally categorized as “pedophilia” either.
You can check it out in much more detail on The gates of Vienna which is a very serious blog about the dangers of Islam, and what seems to be a passionate advocate of freedom of speech, if this world would have 1,000 more like these bunch of bloggers, it will be a better place – not just right now but in the future.
