Most parents would be abhorred if an older man approached their 12 year old daughter for sexual favours and would call the Police immediately. Some might even be tempted to take their own action. Society rightly considers that paedophilia is one of the worst crimes.
Yet the father of the so-called child bride actually hosted the wedding. He is a relatively recent convert to Islam, so perhaps he was reading the story of Muhammad marrying the seven year old Aisha.
But it is highly unlikely that he alone decided it was right to tolerate and support such a criminal enterprise – one can imagine the pressure to which he was subjected by his new brethren. Surely he knew this was wrong?
The Greeks and Romans knew that their gods did not set a moral example. Just because Zeus appeared as a white bull and abducted Europa didn’t mean that mere mortals could behave thus.
Just because Muhammad married a child bride doesn’t mean his followers should do so.
