Dear oh dear, do I really have to trot out my scan of the babylonian
Talmud again? Diugie knows the one, he posted a rebuttal against some
straw man argument concerning a different section. Here's the one I mean:
Islam has rather strict rules about when a girl is ready for sex. This is
determined by the appearence of the upper mark (breasts) and the lower
mark (pubic hair). Of course these rules were set down 1500 years ago,
and it was not until much more recently that Christians enacted a minimum
age of consent. I'm pretty sure Christians set the limit at 13, probably
because setting it higher would have called the character of Mary into

Odd, whenever I have visited a Christian church I'm sure they did a
reading from the Old Testament. True, they never mention the juicy bits
where Moses ordered the army to kill everyone but the girls under 12 and
to share the survivors out among the soldiery. But they read from it at
every service nevertheless.

I suggest you do a bit of reading about Islam before making such silly
statements. Try looking for a text that is not on the neo-Nazi reading
list. You may be surprised at what you find.
