Robert Spencer writes:
Is truth no defense? Of course, the whole concept of pedophilia did not exist in Muhammad’s day, but when he is taken as the supreme example of human conduct and imitated today, what results is…pedophilia. Muhammad’s consummation of his marriage with Aisha when she was nine is in the hadith collection Muslims consider most reliable, Bukhari, several times…
And it’s a good thing that this Saudi “marriage officiant” isn’t in Austria, or he could face charges also, for saying the same thing. But how many Muslims are in Austria now who believe that Muhammad consummated his marriage with Aisha when she was nine, and that that was perfectly fine?
And why isn’t the Austrian state going to prosecute them?
