Americans were shocked to learn the insidious fact that little girls were having sex with their elderly “husbands” at the FLDS compound in Texas. Not to mention the polygamy and beatings. There should be no shock, this was all well known. This religion’s prophet Warren Jeffs not only practiced such but also preached the morality of it to his followers. He is doing time for marrying a 14 year old to her cousin. We also have women such as Kathy Jo Nicholson who have freed themselves of the Church’s tyranny and have bravely come forward to recount their experiences.
They’ve never experienced the freedom to think for themselves or to freely question their leaders. They’ve been told to keep “sweet,” to sacrifice their feelings for the greater “good.” They’ve been taught that perfect obedience leads to perfect faith. When you are taught that it is a sin to think or question things, you begin to function in total obedience to the will of another. It is as if you are a robot made to do the bidding of your husband and the Prophet.Sound familiar? That’s because we have things like this going on all the time in Sharia governed countries.
A Yemeni court on Tuesday granted a divorce to an eight-year-old girl whose unemployed father forced her into an arranged marriage this year, saying he feared she might be kidnapped.
"I am happy that I am divorced now. I will be able to go back to school," Nojud Mohammed Ali said, after a public hearing in Sanaa's court of first instance.
