If it's meant as an unjustified jeer, I can see what you mean.(Original post by yasminkattan)
Suggesting that the Prophet (saw) raped Aisha, or calling him a pedophile, is not the same.
But if you're saying that this is something that you wouldn't believe if all the evidence and argument in the world turned in favour of it, then I don't agree, I'm afraid. That would imply that you operate on the axiom that Muhammad was perfect in all respects and for all time and, given the definition of an axiom as something beyond dispute, that would nullify the distinction you draw between accusing Muhammad of being a paedophile and a rapist and other criticisms of Islam and Islamic history. Either all these things are questionable, or none of them are.
Upsetting, sure. Condoning it? Obviously not. You don't have to agree with someone to listen to them or be in their company.I don't want to be in the company of someone who would do that, it's upsetting and it would mean I'm condoning it.

You seem to have a really strong character & actually use independent thought and critical thinking skills to come a conclusion on what is the best path to follow instead of being easily influenced by the people around you so for that I admire you. Just wondering what your relationship is like with your family/relatives at the moment. Do they accept that you're not muslim anymore? (not sure if you've told them?)
