    Possible/ Likely.

    No, it was in response to somebody saying that it must be a Muslim thing because the Prophet Mohammed had a wife who may |(or may not) have been very young. They are just historical examples to show that this was not a solely Muslim custom at that time and for some time after. Not a justification.

    Just a red herring.

    Or a rambling conversation.

    Yes, I think you are right. Muslims learn the Koran (or parts of it) by heart. I suspect that they take some of it's teachings literally.

    Right so the justification given by sickos is that some dead desert warlord did it and people on here thought 'hey lets pile on some more fuel to that fire'.

    It's sickening. I get there is now a trend in society to tolerate everything and nothing is out of bounds. Thank god I'm not onboard with that trend.

    Not like that at all, in fact the opposite. As far as I was concerned I was making the point that it was equally irrelevant.

    I don't think that's a fair reflection of what's actually been posted.
    One poster claimed Muslims were more likely to be involved in child abuse because they could use Mohammed's personal circumstances as justification. The further discussion was in objection to the idea. Nobody has condoned or justified child sex gangs that I can see.

    I've looked carefully at every post on this thread and I cannot see one (or any combination of posts) that indicates that the trend you refer to is present on here or that anyone is "onboard" with it

    So people are just innocently posting stuff saying ''oh in 14th century Europe they got married at 6'' on a thread about children being raped in modern Britain... and you guys think ''nothing suspicious there''.

    As some Christians do with the Bible.

    There's lots suspicious here but I still don't think the historical references are being used to condone modern child abuse.

    1. Child abuse is wrong no matter who does it and NOBODY has condoned this in anyway at all on this thread.
    2. @Orkrider2's post 42 quotes CEOP report which makes many pertinent points
    3. @NoseyMatronType and @grumpydogwoman also make good points re historical/research based comments
    4. Facts are important.

    What point is it that you are making?

    I'll be very surprised if you can reduce 1.8 billion people to a 'they'.

    Edited to change the number because I'm drunk and my phone is stupid.

    Didn't see them.

    I've spent several days watching the minor disaster that is my life unravel in various ways- accidents, A&E, green stick fractures (both kids), calpol, endless moaning.

    Happy holidays. Not even close on the disasters front but the youngest is potty training and I've spent the last week trying to convince him a) not to strip all the time and b) to stop sticking his finger up his bottom.

    Yes, but groups of Christians don't organise themselves into grooming gangs to rape children from the sub-continent.

    Sorry it's The Sun, but this was in all the other papers too. People with this mindset come to our country and bring their mindsets and values with them. I suspect that it is sometimes then passed on down the generations

    Did you read the post I made #53 about the bizarre Malawi custom of sending their daughters to be sexually initiated (raped) at an early age to "cleanse" them? Those people are Christians. Even the priest's daughter was raped in this manner.

    The Malawi practice described is purely a centuries old cultural thing, unconnected to their religion, albeit their religion hasn't been able to cure them of it. It isn't a race thing either, since it isn't practised throughout Malawi.

    Neither is FGM anything more than a bizarre and barbaric cultural tradition that although prevalent among certain races that happen to follow the Islamic religion, has nothing specifically to do with either their race or their religion.
