  1. This is another example of persons who misuses religion to justify his wicked behavior. Marrying an under-aged girl doesn’t make sense at all. This guy has lost his conscience and right mind. I propose that moslem leaders should explain to the world their views about this issue, so that the world can see islam as the religion of peace.

  2. Sally,
    I have to agree with you on this one. This kind of abuse should be illegal in any society that values the lives of their most important resource, their innocent children.
