Skip to comments.In Europe, Free Speech Bows to Sharia
Posted on 10/27/2018 5:06:13 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
In Mohammeds time a time of rampant infant mortality and low life expectancy notions of adulthood and marriageability were conflated with puberty. The coupling of men and girls was not uncommon or considered condemnable. Indeed, as observed by Myriam Francois-Cerrah, a progressive scholar of Islam, five centuries after Mohammed married Aisha, King John of England, at age 33, married 12-year-old Isabella of Angoulême.
The problem is not that, in the seventh century, Mohammed married a young girl. It is that, while the West evolves because it venerates reason, much of Islamic culture regards Mohammed as the perfect role model, and this conception of the good is immutable. To fundamentalists, enacting laws against child marriage would be tantamount to saying Mohammed was in the wrong unacceptable.
As a result, child marriage, like the abuse of women and girls in many other contexts, remains a major problem in Islamic countries. In Saudi Arabia, for example, efforts to establish the marriage age at 15 (and, some hope, to raise it to 18) have been flattened by sharia authorities. The ulema point to the example of Aisha, as well as scripture that marks the onset of puberty as the point of marriageability, and decree that no minimum age is appropriate. Even when governments enact a marriage age, fundamentalist communities flout it.
Speaking of fundamentalist communities, one objective of sharia supremacists is to establish Muslim enclaves in the West and then pressure the host governments to concede their right to govern themselves under Islamic law. That is not seen as a permanent arrangement. It is a transition on the path to imposition of sharia standards on all of society.
You think it can never happen?

All the vets who died during WW2 to free Europe and here we are again, same kind of appeasing leftist weasel a*sholes slowly allowing it be enslaved. Imagine what it’s going to be like 20 years from now, the “courts” deem a womans face is too “suggestive” and therefore offensive to Islam, ergo all women must wear the burka.
“Free speech” in the EU means “Free to say what we allow”.
One day soon, all those blue eyed, blond headed young women of Eurowinnies will be wearing their toe to head with tiny eye slit, burkas. All euro men will be bowing to that Al Bundy guy and trying to grow beards. All women will walk behind men and get slapped around and beaten. So much for women’s lib in Eurotown. A self inflicted wound of deadly proportions. Europe as a continent of free countries is done. Russia has its on Muzzie problem itself. Their army is heavily made up of muzzies. This is the End that the Bible speaks of. The nations of the world have gone mad. The Scriptures make it clear these days are coming and they are hear. God gave those type people over to a REPROBATE mind. That He has done. You believe in filth and act that way, showing absolutely no desire to live a decent life and act decently, He turns you over to your reprobate mind. A huge portion of the western world now operates on this type of mind, especially liberals and muzzies in these nations. The End is now fully in sight. Millions of people think the world is coming to an end and they are correct, as we know it. The Holy Scriptures make it clear. Time is running out for people to come to Christ. Don’t do so at your own peril. This is the chance to do it without having to do so during the Tribulation period. When you do so at that time you will be slaughtered, your head cut off. Seek Him now.
I have come to the conclusion that somehow it became (quite a while ago) one of the chosen methods for virtue signaling among the left.
I don't think they as individuals (if they are individuals and not just NPC's) even see what they are doing.
I think this cartoon captures it...
People naturally seek a foundation for their beliefs. Since Christianity is being sidelined by Europe’s cultural elite Islam is filling in that vacuum. Maybe even worse than Communism since Islam has staying power
I think it's staying power is a function of it being a religion.
Like communism, it leaves its followers in abject poverty, but in the case of Islam, these poor followers feel "holy" in the way that Islams tells them they are "holy."
Communists just feel poor.
Much of Europe is already under sharia. It’s just not official.
Also, Rooster, islam gives you a beautiful afterlife which communism does not. One of communism’s many failings.
Goodbye Europe. Don’t expect us to come save your butts this time. You are walking into this hellhole all too willingly...
islam is a totalitarian death cult founded by a child rapist.
The historical accuracy of Mohammed’s purported pedophilia is questionable but what is not is the islamic approval of what is probably a myth.
