Reason Number 12: Pedophiles

Why Convert to Islam?

America has frightened our children into seeing pedophiles behind every tree and in every car.
The Profit Mohammad had many wives, one was at the age of 10-years-old. This sounds wrong today, but that was many centuries ago when life expectancy was much shorter and arranged marriages were common place.
We have become such a litigious society that high school students have to fear sex from an age point of view. In most states now, if the boy is 18 or older, even though he is still in high school and has sex with another high school student, a girl, under the age of 18, the boy can be charged with statutory rape. This is from the same society that openly promotes sex and sexual behavior in everything we do from clothing to TV Ads to movies and mass amounts of Internet Porn.
WTF are these idiot prosecutors and legislators thinking?
In Islam today, some countries still allow what we in the United States call underage marriage, at age of 13 for the girl. However, many countries throughout the world consider 16 to be a legal adult age, and no longer a teen.

  1. I am assuming you had a bitter divorce, so join the club, and now you hate America because of the lawyers and judges...
    some merit to that, but change is good, but what you're proposing is radical change, which would lead to outright rebellion or civil war in this country.

    Often, teenage couples engage in consensual sexual conduct as part of an intimate relationship. This may start to occur before either participant has reached the age of consent, or after one has but the other has not. In such cases, the older of the two participants is technically guilty of statutory rape. Most jurisdictions, as previously stated, consider the act itself to be prima facie evidence of guilt, as any consent between partners, even if freely given, does not meet the standard of law as it is given by a minor. The accused in these cases normally has no defense.

    This has often been considered unjust, leading to the passage of so-called "Romeo and Juliet" laws, which serve to reduce or eliminate the penalty of the crime in cases where the couple's age difference is minor and the sexual contact is only considered rape because of the lack of legally-recognized consent. Such laws vary, but can include:

    Providing an affirmative defense to statutory rape based on the small difference in the participants' ages, or on evidence of a pre-existing sexual relationship between actor and victim that did not constitute statutory rape.
    Reducing the severity of the offense from a felony to a misdemeanor, which prevents loss of civil rights and reduces available penalties
    Reducing the penalty in such cases to a fine, probation, and/or community service
    Eliminating the requirement that the convicted participant register as a sex offender, or reducing the duration of such registry from life to 1, 5 or 10 years.
    Allowing the judge to impose probation instead of a jail sentence. The convicted party can sometimes file for expungement after the probationary period.
    Such laws generally apply to a couple whose ages differ by less than a specified number of years. They are however generally unavailable in any case where the older participant has an authoritative position over the younger regardless of relative age, such as a teacher/student, coach/player or guardian/ward relationship, or if any physical force was used or serious physical injury resulted. This is normally accomplished by making acts involving these circumstances separate crimes to which the "Romeo and Juliet" defense does not apply.

  4. your views about islam is too shallow, mohammad married a young woman and i doubt she wasnt ten years old i forgot the exact age but she wasnt 10 he married that woman for a reason to take care of that woman and feed her, foe him to be able to look legal marrying her is the best option so people of those time may not think that the woman was just a mistress or a whore, islam has a very conservative views about sex, and for a muslim woman marriage is important. it shud be marriage first before sex. ok?

America, you really need to think the logic out in this one.

Wait until several reasons are posted and I think you will agree with me.
