Raped to death, in brief.  This is a practice widespread in many of the most backward muslim countries, and in certain parts of India. I don’t know how the estimates below are generated, there is likely some advocacy in those numbers, but child marriage is real and little girls do suffer horribly from it:

Al Nahar, Lebanon, has reported that an eight year old child bride died in Yemen on her wedding night after suffering internal injuries due to sexual trauma. Human rights organizations are calling for the arrest of her husband who was five times her age.

The death occurred in the tribal area of Hardh in northwestern Yemen, which borders Saudi Arabia. This brings even more attention to the already existing issue of forced child marriages in the Middle Eastern region.

“According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), between 2011 and 2020, more than 140 million girls will become child brides. Furthermore, of the 140 million girls who will marry before the age of 18, 50 million will be under the age of 15.”

It is reported that over a quarter of Yemen’s young girls are married before the age of 15Not only do they lose access to health and education, these child brides are commonly subjected to physical, emotional and sexual violence in their forced marriage.

When muslim men lust after and then marry child brides, they are only emulating their “magnificent” prophet. Mohammed married a 9 year old girl.  That is why this practice is so difficult to stamp out.  A law was passed in Yemen a few years ago to make this kind of marriage illegal, but more radical islamists came back to power and they abrogated it.  It is very likely there are millions of little girls presently suffering under these situations in muslim countries.  I read the story of one 11 year old Afghani girl who bled for many months after giving birth to a child at her ridiculously young age.  Of course, she received essentially no medical care, and had to continue slaving away for hew husband/owner in their mud hut.  Then there is the epidemic of boy rape among Pashtun men in Afghanistan and Pakistan – which our sick goverment doesn’t allow our troops to do anything about, even when they catch these depraved men in the act.

It is things like this that further reinforce my very dim view of “ecumenism” and “inculturation,” as opposed to evangelization and the presentation of the highest achievement of Western Civilization, the Traditional Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in pure, uninculturated form. Or do we, as Catholics, no longer believe that conversion is infinitely superior to endless, fruitless dialogue?

So depressing. No wonder Michael Berry (talk show host) called Muslims perverts. (Rather not quote him here.)

That little girl in the picture should be making her first Holy Communion and not getting married. Sick.
