Have you ever heard of the state of Utah? Of course you don't see it right out in the open because deep down these perverts know this is a sick and distasteful practice. A quick google search can find you all the proof you want. Start search marriage records and ages. It's all there.

there was a guy i know, who was emailing an 18 year old girl in high school. she lived somewhere else in the country, and he got upset. she was supposed to move here, move in with him, and get this, get married.

but i wanted to say to the guy, she did not move here, because she had to catch more pokemon in tennessse.
(i love pokemon myself lol.)

this guy was complaining to me like, you get it right? guy had no clue you cannot marry a girl that young, especially one you never met, only talked to over the phone if ever.

i hang out with girls of all ages, but i would never ever date or marry someone that young. (i go to concerts and festivals like EDC, you meet people of all walks of life there.) thank god im normal, and they look like kids to me, not women.

but some guys are into it, i assume because they want to be the daddy-boss type.

it happens to girls too, all those hot girl teachers hooking up with students. i admit im hypocritical here. when i was in high school we always flirted (as best as an inexpierenced 16 year old can) with the hot substitute teachers. for a guy, i think its fine.

but again, not to marry. that is weird some of these women ALSO want to marry some 16 year old. thats bonkers.

there is a famous comic book artist who got married at 16 to an older chick. they are still married years later.

a friend of mine who is 6'4'' and was that tall in high school dated his social studies teacher. he was 16, massive football player, and she was 24. he was smart enough to realize, never tell anyone. also it was the 70s, so no social media. he told she would take him to concerts. i told him he was the man for accomplishing such a feat! lol.

so again, its hypocritical, but weird. my friend was bigger than me already by 16. so his teacher just saw a giant football player.

girls do not look like that tho. so it makes no sense why an older guy wants a high school or younger girl.

this kind of crap is exactly the reason prostitution should be legalized. if there were hookers everywhere, these guys with weird fetishes could just pay the hooker to dress up as a school girl.

Guardian had an article some weeks ago:



almost 250,000 children were married there between 2000 and 2010, some of them as young as 10. “Almost all were girls married to adult men,”

That's seriously f#cked up. Any idea which branch of religion is practising this?

I read at one point that Idaho has the highest rate of child marriage in the US, but that's an older statistic, early 2000's, I think. Via a google search, Pew says W Virginia and Texas, ironically, have the highest rate of child marriage now. However, this only counts 15-17 as the youngest age group, so it's probably not accurate either, Idaho might still be in the lead.
www.pewresearch.org...

I'm having a rough time finding detailed, verifiable stats for both age & religious rankings. I think we can tentatively suss out likely sect culprits in states & regions from the available info, though.


"About 57,800 minors in the U.S. ages 15 to 17 were married as of 2014. That might sound like a lot of people (and it is), but it’s also just five of every 1,000 in that age group, a Pew Research Center analysis of 2014 data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey finds."


Let that sink in.......................................... near the same number of soldiers died in the Vietnam war.



LOL Did you really say "just"? whether its 5 in 1000 or 1 in a million, 1 in any amount is already too much. lol can't just sit there and say oh, it was just 5 out of 1000.

You are correct it is not a racial problem it is a religious problem. Every religion, all of them, have their extremists that practice this garbage.

My tolerance for religion in general is almost at zero.

So we can only assume that non believers, pagans and atheists would never do this

That's my personal beef with religion, any schmoe can start preaching -and take something that could be a good thing- and pervert it to whatever they want.
If people (and Religions) don't take responsibility for the actions of people that bring infamy and shame to their Religions' name/reputation then they lose credibility and decline.. Religion can and should be a positive thing, that it has often become otherwise is a shame. People are to blame, not anything else.

The logic behind all this is based on both being underage and the girl is pregnant. Right or wrong in today's world it was not based on adults marring underage. I would like to see the data on this since pedophilia is anyone under the age of 12 and delinquency of a minor also rears its ugly head in other cases where one is over 12 but under 18.

It might have made sense at one time, but I think it is all outdated now and we should just have very define laws.

But not outside of religion, you atheists are such wonderful people
Unless you think atheism is a belief system, therefore a religion

Then I guess you are right

Gotta Love how Painterz comes in dropping a steaming pile without any references and gets scores of stars.

Nyiah then comes in to try to save the day with a link about 200,000+ child marriages of girls aged 18 and younger. As if to imply all 200k of those kids are seven years old. And her previous post showed a part of America from 2 generations ago.

Complete bunk folks. Anyone who buys this is inviting this thinking right back into the country.

Don't let the enemy roll back your clocks to the dark ages.

I have never been called an atheist before, that is a new one.

I guess if one calls out extremism in religion they are assumed to be atheist? (or Pagan or non-believer).

Here you go, here is an organization that has a better idea than most on what is going on with child brides. I am sure there are even some non-religious people they could call out for you.

This is a great map showing minimum ages by law, but Is there one showing the number of minimum age marriages? My guess is no, and If there was, it would show no more than a few (less than 10) at most. Most (the vast majority) of the rest would be teenagers eloping without their parents consent.

Utah doesn't count. Mormonism is a wart created by a pedophile so he could promote pedophilia, leading to a landslide of pedophiles flocking to the state. Here's a link to the letter Joseph Smith penned himself!

cesletter.org...

If we want to change it then involve the FBI.

Folks, those very few are heartbreaking, but don't let the misrepresentation shown here fool us into thinking this isn't happening in the100s of millions in parts outside of Western Civilization.

I don't care what you are
It's not just a religious issue and it's ludicrous to suggest it is

There is a problem and the saddest part is all people like you do is moan on the Internet, moan about others who you just want to moan about

Whats your point.

The Bible is just a glimpse of history, life has moved on .....


Are you trying to infer that sex outside of marriage is something modern?



Seems like you are the expert on the Bible so you tell me.....because many

pedophiles currently being unveiled are the ones pushing the Bible.

I think religion does have a hand in it so does some cultural aspects plus poverty.
I can not find any atheist groups pushing for the age of marriage to be lower though.
