COEXIST!

My "there's nothing wrong with that, it's just their culture, we shouldn't judge them" friends are going to be annoyed with me today when I prick their self-righteous bubble of multiculturist smug...(via FFOF, via DhimmiWatch, which I should be reading more than I have been lately)

10-year-old bride gets beaten, raped; family pays husband $200 to compensate him for divorcing her.

CNN cheerfully ignores her religion until way at the end; I'm surprised they bother to report this sort of thing at all.

So, dear friends with COEXIST! bumperstickers who believe we shouldn't impose our way of thinking on other people, please explain to me why you support cultures that see nothing wrong with raping 10-year-old girls, and how they are equivalent to (or better than!) cultures which condemn child rape. Please explain to me how holding in contempt religions that advocate old men have sex with 9-year-old girls is worse than old men having sex with 9-year-old girls.

I will continue to mock you until you get it right.

Amen.

Of course, you get those who always fulfill "Manning's Corrollary" - that is, no matter how horrible a practice or violent a teaching of Islam is - someone will *always* argue Christianity is just as bad or worse.

Sorry, I'm with you. No, scratch that - I'm not sorry. I'm not sorry for defending my faith and saying that things with Islam (and other cultures) are totally screwed up. I am not "equal" to people who think beheading is a justafiable means of punishing non-believers, who think women are property and 1/4 the human being a man is, etc. Give me a break.

I'm not sorry, either. If I'm a racist for feeling sorry for that girl and feeling relieved I was born into a Christian family in America, so be it.
