[quote]I`ll take the word of an Imam over an internet know-it-all on the meaning of a word in the koran.
When he told me of this occurrence, it was alright in his eyes,since aisha supposedly had started her menses. I made my own judgement from there.

Thanks for trying.[/quote]

Maybe you`d like to try a rebuttal of something I`ve written?

You don`t know what the word in question is and you wouldn`t be able to read it if you did, so why are you claiming to know what it means?

You`ve found one person who agrees with you. I don`t consider that proof that you`re right.

You might get as far as thinking about the word "consummated", so I`ll deal with that first.

The passage was, obviously, written in Arabic.

"consummation" is a translation into English.

"consummation" means "completion".

It can be used to refer to the completion of the marriage started by betrothral (which is a partial marriage, not at all like an engagement).

In England centuries later, it implied sex as that was what completed the marriage there and then.

It`s a common mistake in etymology to assume that the meaning of a word in one place at one time is exactly the same as the meaning of the word in a different place at a different time. That is often not true, especially for secondary implied meanings.

Assuming that it`s an accurate translation in the first place, which it might or might not be.

[quote]mohammed was 48 when he was betrothed to aisha who was 6. They married at 49 / 7, comsumated at 51 / 9. What else would you call a 51 year old man having sex with a 9 year old girl? Child molester fits perfectly here.[/quote]

I know that you can read, because you must have read the first few words of my post.

So how about you read the other few lines of it, which contain the explanation? I realise that reading may well be difficult for you, but you`re going to continue looking bad if you continue replying to posts without reading them. If it`s a real problem, get someone to read to you.

Here`s the key points, spelled out carefully for you:

There is no statement of Mohammed having sex with Aisha when she was that young.

Marriage in the past was often arranged purely for financial/political/social reasons, especially when wealth/status was involved, and did not imply sex.

So, as I said, there`s no evidence that Mohammed was a

I am sure this was probably meant sarcastically but I`ll take the compliment all the same. If I were that respected I`d be a mod by now.

@Baalthy: So if some religious nut says something koo-koo, and I say he`s a koo-koo nut, I`m wrong?

Wow, this new-age leftist thinking is hard! You`re wrong if you`re `right` but you`re right if you`re `left`?

@Gerry1of1 - he doesn`t like the group I belong to, so everything I say is wrong, eh? lolz! Oh the irony!

I don`t think I get your point. I mean, isn`t everyone`s opinion swayed by such information?

For example, if someone says he`s in the Nazi party I`m gonna think he`s a little stupid.
But if the same guy said he was in the Kardashian wedding Party I`m gonna think he was completely crazy.

See. My response was based on whether or not I dislike the group.

"At least Christians are consistent."

Right. Abort a fetus and it`s murder. But bomb a country and kill more than 100,000 innocent civilians in a desperate attempt to take control over some oil, and that`s OK.

Moron.

About what, exactly? They claim half of Leviticus is holy law and must be followed to the letter (such as those infamous lines supposedly regarding homosexuality) but willingly ignore the rest because it would impact the comfort of their every day lives.

Many try to claim that Jesus coming absolved them of having to follow those laws, but Jesus himself said "It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law."

Yoda: "wtf THEIR women?!"

Their boss? Their God? Their wife? Their Master? Their superior? Their better? Their manager? Their country? Their leader? Their religion? Their local supermarket? Their TV station? Their owner? Their parents?

So... yes. THEIR women is exactly how you would structure a sentence.. The term "their" doesn`t imply ownership or inferiority.

Though I agree with the rest of your sentiment.

5 Cats:
"Of course this guy is koo-koo! But less so than a lot of other folks, so Meh! Whatever."

That was your response to the last non-Muslim nut. So crying out bigot now is a little hypocritical considering that your responses are organized first by whether or not you dislike the group the person is in.

I agree with 5Cats. If a culture is bigoted, ignorant and insensitive, then it is inferior. Somebody once told me "who are you to judge how muslims in the arab world treat their women?" wtf THEIR women?!

HAHAHAHA! The Philipinos I work with think this too.
It`s terrible to have a faggot son, but if you have a Lesbo daughter it`s not so bad...

WTF! I`m really "right wing" and I`m shocked at the bigotry of this! BUT we have to be "sensitive" because it`s a "cultural" thing?
drat DAT!

Muslims and Phillioponos are BIGOTS! I am 100% more accepting of gay persons than them, yet the "left" brands ME a homophobe? drat DAT!
going to read the dratING posts now... (in a bad mood too!)

Addendum for people who don`t want to look anything up:

The word `lesbian` comes from an ancient Greek poet, Sappho, who lived on an island called Lesbos (or possibly Lesvos).

Mohammed married a child. She was 8, if I recall correctly. Somewhere around that age, anyway.

It would be more consistent for a Christian to have the same attitude. There are half a dozen verses that are traditionally interpreted as speaking against homosexuality between men and only one that`s traditionally interpreted as speaking against homosexuality between women.

I think that the traditional interpretation of all of them is bullpoo and none of them actually speak against homosexuality, but that`s a different argument.

To be fair, there`s no evidence that Mohammed was a child molestor. Marriage was a very different thing back then, especially when status/wealth/power was involved, and often had nothing to do with sex. People were sometimes married before they were born.

I`m hoping that`s a mistranslation because obviously lesbians are by definition homosexual.

Maybe homosexual men should adopt an ancient Greek poet to get a unique name for themselves. Shouldn`t be hard to find one who wrote erotic poetry to/about other men.

Also, "practical" is so obviously irrelevant that I wonder what he actually said.

This pic made me laugh, and quite substantially too.

"Practical terms"? There are no practical terms. There are no practical terms because those things aren`t bad.

One interesting thing to note is that this appears to be from Al-Jazeera (note the logo). I thought they were fairly trustworthy - I watched their English broadcasts and they didn`t seem very Fox Newsy anyway. But then I heard that they broadcast something totally different in Arabic, I guess this is what was meant.

Well! I guess that`s another media outlet tossed in Lazyme`s "bin of BS".

Yes, I am aware of the disconnect I just glossed over. I am making an assumption here.
