    I don't think it's just restricted to Islam.  People have been trying to find legitimate ways to get their hands on little girls for eons.

      In Islam, it's the mainstream.  That's the difference.

      But right now hundreds of millions of human beings are being subjected to forms of Sharia law that no progressive could possibly countenance. We MUST speak out for the women and children in these countries. If it is okay to speak out against Christianists in Kansas, it is certainly okay to speak out against Islamic politicians in Nigeria and other countries. IMO it is a requirement of all people who believe that it is time to move past 12th-Century beliefs.
