God says OK to kidnap, beat and rape a 12-year-old for eight months

In Pakistan, the legal age for marriage is 16. But hey, who cares? One of the key benefits of religion is that God’s law is above puny civil law. And according to God, the following is fine:

From Mail Online (text compacted here):

A 12-year-old Christian girl was lured on a shopping trip in Lahore by a friend, before she was driven 120 miles to Tandianwalla and repeatedly raped by the friend’s uncle. Two days later, she was forced to sign papers consenting to marriage with the man and beaten for refusing to convert from Christianity to Islam. The man continued to rape her for eight months before she managed to escape.

The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has said the rapists have not been arrested because of their affiliation with a militant Muslim organisation – the Lashkar-e-Tayyaba.

Full article.

But wait! Before you blame Pakistan’s medieval attitudes, check what prominent Christians in the U.S. (1, 2) think about civil law versus God’s law. Guess which has priority for them?

It’s not Pakistan, stupid. It’s religion that says you have divine permission to treat people like shit.

  1. Think again. Of course religion says you have the divine permission to treat people like shit (and let’s be fair, that does not happen in all cases in all religions at all costs). However, it’s people who believe in this divine permission and execute it. Yes, their faulty mindset is to blame. Religion may have fed that mindset, but I believe everyone has the choice and ability to leave.

    And, that is one hell of a brave 12-year-old. Cheers to her!
