wow, you certainly go to lengths to condone muhammads dirty mind.
lets put this into todays context- some cult leader claims to be a prophet, he brainwashes followers, people are willing to give anything to him, their life, their children, etc because he has convinced them that is what god wants.
examples of this-
- the people's temple- people committed mass sucicide, and killed their own children because their 'prophet' told them to
- the children of god- their leader wanted them to breed more members for his cult, so people had to breed with young children as soon as their were physically capable of breeding, and 'practised' on younger children.
muhammad himself was hungry for power, wealth, social status, the apperance of holiness and authority. he had no respect for women and their decisions
'Muhammad said: “If a man fabricated the acceptance of a woman to marry her by bringing two false witnesses to confirm the marriage, then if the judge confirmed that marriage, although the man and the two witnesses knew that the woman did not accept the marriage herself, the marriage is to be considered legal and valid” 15' (http://www.myspear.org/quran_stoning_women.html
paedophiles put themselves in a position of trust. The pedophile believes that he is in love with (or simply loves) the child. No amount of denials, chastising, threats, and even outright hostile actions convince the erotic-maniac that the child is not in love with him. He knows better and will make the world see the light as well. He interprets everything the child does (or refrains from doing) as coded messages confessing to and conveying the child's interest in and eternal devotion to the pedophile and to the "relationship".
the quran was the word of a man described above, it is very interesting how many parents, educated people, etc have been convinced that what this paedophile believed was right.
as i said before, mind control is so powerful, you could convince parents to give up their child, groom the child so they belive they love the predatory paedo and convince other followers that what he is doing is right.
if a middle aged man today had sex with a 9 year old child- would you make excuses to condon his actions?
