America’s 225,000 child brides

The American Judeo-Christian bigots love to blame Muslims for their own sins such as hatred toward women, abortion, honor killing (Italy 75%, USA 30% as compared to 25% max. in Jordan), slavery, child marriage, etc.

How many brainwashed American know that the US-based organization Unchained at Last in its latest report claims that over a quarter of million children were married in United states between 2000 and 2010. Report shows girls as young as 12 year old married in states Alaska, Louisiana, and South Carolina to men 20-30 year older than girls (watch story of a Jewish girl named Jamie below).

The Tahirih Justice Center, which helps protect women and girls from gender-based violence, found that Texas has the second highest rates of child marriages in the nation, as nearly 40,000 children under the age of 18 were married between 2000 and 2014.

Child marriage is strongly linked to high rates of school dropouts and poverty, and those married before the age of 18 are three times more likely to experience domestic violence than those married at 21 or older.

Women and girls married at a young age also often experience physical and mental health problems, including higher rates of maternal mortality and sexually transmitted infections.

Child marriage is allowed in 115 countries around the world.

Israeli newspaper Jerusalem Post reported on December 2, 2013, over 1500 Jewish girls under 17 year age are forced by parents to marry each year as result of having sex with their boyfriends.

Israeli Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yankowitz says that Talmud “teaches that a father can betroth his daughter of only three years and one day old (Sanhedrin 55b, Kiddushin 41).”

Catholic canon law permits marriage at sixteen for boys, and fourteen for girls.

Holy Qur’an forbids marriage until both boy and girl have reached puberty. There is no age limit as puberty is not controlled by age. Under Islamic Shari’ah, a marriage is not legal without the approval of man and woman of free will. Furthermore, same sex marriage is 101% forbidden and considered a major sin in Islam. However, Reform Judaism blesses LGBT community and same sex marriage. It even has gay and lesbian rabbis. How wonderful!
