16-year-old Moroccan girl kills herself after judge forces her to marry her rapist

Quote:
A Moroccan teenager killed herself after a judge forced her to marry her rapist.
The 16-year-old girl, named only as Amina, ate rat poison after a Tangier court which was supposed to be punishing her 26-year-old attacker decided that they should instead be wed.

This is because Moroccan laws exempt a rapist from punishment if he agrees to marry his victim.
Yet the libs in this country would have you think you're waging a 'war on women' if you refuse to pay for their contraception.

This is a terrible story. I feel sorry for this poor dear. How is this in anyway related to your attack on liberals though?

That's awesome! and by awesome, the way you make completely no sense by suggesting that because Christians aren't quite as crazy as Muslims, we shouldn't criticise them.

Enjoying your salad? Nice mix of apples and oranges ya got there.

Just what is it that makes you think one act of lunacy precludes others?

These kinds of moral atrocities occur all over the world, every single day.

Culturally they are so mindfutzed. Imagine if women here were forced to marry their rapists.

Here's a post off this article: Moroccan girl commits suicide after being forced to marry her rapist

Quote:
You western don't understand

Please Americans do not judge. Us Muslims and believers of Islam do things the Islamic way and the Holy book guides us everyday on how to live a moral and faithful life. This may be confusion to non believers, but assure you that if you were Muslim, marrying your rapist makes total sense. Americans are not of our faith and therefore ignorant of what is right and wrong. May Allah forgive this woman of committing this un-Islamic and coward like act.
Just one more reason to refuse immigrants from that part of the world.

They come here and expect to live by their rules.

I feel sorry for the young girl, but can see crazy religious of the christian persuasion in the US agreeing with this horror.

First of all that is a very sad story, and as oildog says, not an uncommon one. One book everyone should read is Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She says that in her native Somolia, it is common for females pregnant out of wedlock to commit suicide, most often using gasoline to burn themselves to death. That is preferable to what lies ahead as a single mother in Somolia.

Secondly I don't see a problem with the OPs comparison. The 'war on women' meme has been all over the place. This shows how petty and overblown that meme is. There is no war on women in the US.

This is where I have to agree with the crazy right. Sheria law has no place in America. My daughter as long as I live will not live under that law.
