My mother was just scrolling her Facebook (she does that every evening to my great annoyance) and she suddenly said "look at this!". I rolled my eyes expecting to see another cats/puppies/homemade recipe video but she showed me this:
Germany Legalizes Child Marriage for Followers of Sharia Law

It cannot be, I thought, is just the usual Facebook trolls, but I tracked the source all the way to the german newspaper (site?) WELT, pulled the article in Google translate and it turned out is true.



BGH considers child marriage regulations to be unconstitutional


What does that mean? Well, this site is explaining it better than me.




“The ruling, which effectively opens the door to legalizing Sharia-based child marriages in Germany, is one of a growing number of instances in which German courts are — wittingly or unwittingly — promoting the establishment of a parallel Islamic legal system in the country,” writes respected journalist Soeren Kern in a report for the Gatestone Institute.


So here we are, over ruling the german law with the Sharia law, because you know, they are people too. And if their laws approve of marriage of children it must be the right thing.



The Justice Minister of Hesse, Eva Kühne-Hörmann, asked: “If underage persons — quite rightly — are not allowed to buy a beer, why should the lawmakers allow children to make such profound decisions related to marriage?”


From this other article we have the head of german police union reacting



Religious or cultural justifications obscure the simple fact that older, perverse men are abusing young girls,” said Rainer Wendt, head of the German police union


and I am totally in agreement.
My question is how come a barbaric set of laws known as Sharia law is allowed, slowly but certainly to overcome the laws of a civilized society, laws we fought so hard for centuries to put in place?
Where are all the offended femininsts and #metoo warriors and why are not they screaming to the high heaven to protect these girls? Why is not this on every news so we can all know about it and grab some torches and pitchforks? Because I would, in all honesty, if there is something I would go on an all out revolution, this would be it.

For so long I hear about a certain peaceful religion, and how we are all people, and we need to show compassion and openness and what not, and I'm waiting quietly for the moment it will turn against us. I guess that moment has come. It makes me so angry I have no words.

Good job, Germany. Make us all proud.


Sorry for the multiple edits, i pressed post too early.

"The pair, cousins, were married in February 2015 while the man was aged 21 and the girl aged only 14 in a marriage procedure that was done under sharia legally in Syria but was considered invalid by German authorities where the marriage age was 16 at the time."

Wow, but hey, don't judge other cultures...all equal and whatnot.

It seems the human race has splintered, into those progressing forward and those standing still(or going backwards).

You know one way to get people to be against Sharia law is just start having all the men in those countries start following it.

They can beat their wives and rape children and follow Sharia. A few years of that and no westerners will ever allow it again.

When are they going to legalise ‘stoning’ for followers of sharia law?
Will ‘rape of non-believers’ also be legalised for followers of sharia law?
How about ‘waging jihad’? Will that also be acceptable?

Who am I kidding, of course it will.

If true then Germany is not a country I would visit.

I will also warn my children when mixing with them as our cultures are not similar. Germany is a backwards country.

Here is to the new Germany and Europe. Good luck with all that mess.

No. The opposite is true, actually.


The proposed law allows youth welfare workers the right to take married children into state care even if they were legally married abroad and, if deemed necessary, separate them from their spouses.

Exceptions are also possible if the couple were married as children but are now both adults and want to stay married.

Under the bill, any attempts to marry minors in traditional or religious celebrations rather than state ceremonies will be punished with a fine.

German cabinet proposes national ban on child marriages

I don’t even need to read into this but I can say confidently that no, you cannot marry children in Germany.

This reminds me a big of that headline about chemicals in the water turning frogs gay.....if it sounds to crazy to be true then it’s probably not true. This absolutely reeks of fake- news in my opinion

Yes that was the case until this new ruling.



Germany’s Federal Court of Justice, in its ruling, published on December 14, 2018, stated that the new law may be unconstitutional because it violated Articles 1 (human dignity), 2 (free development of personality), 3 (equal protection) and 6 (protection of marriage and family) of the Basic Law, which serves as the German constitution.

In September 2016, the German Interior Ministry, responding to a Freedom of Information Act request, revealed that 1,475 married children — including 361 children under the age of 14 — were known to be living in Germany as of July 31, 2016.


I don't think is a too big of an effort to find the info.



By shielding the Syrian couple from German law, the court has not only legitimized the use of Sharia law to determine the outcome of legal cases in Germany, it has also established a precedent that will almost certainly be used in the future by defenders of child marriage and other foreign laws. Moreover, by insisting that the legitimacy of child marriages be examined on a case-by-case basis, the court has opened the door to so-called cultural exceptions, namely those enshrined in Sharia law, which does not set any age limit to marriage.

From here on when people move into your nation you must adopt the laws of their home state at once.

Me, I hail from Planet Galgamar, and there we get free Thai food on Tuesday, free ice cream on Wednesday, free tacos on Thursday and a free 12 pack of Corona every other day in between (plus fresh limes 7 days a week).

That means no more Taco Tuesday for you suckers!

Because you must now provide me these God given amenities, and pat me on the back for doing so.

Yea.

The best trick they've pulled off to date is in getting everyone to believe that they aren't already in full control--that the "takeover" is just around the corner.

The NWO is not tomorrow. It was yesterday.

Age of Marrage in US

In the US, If you are between 16 and 17 years old, you will have to show parental consent. Those who are 14 to 15 years old, you can't get a marriage license without a court order. Anyone under 14 years of age cannot get married.

So I have been told by the internet.

OOPs - Just found this:


The minimum age for marriage in the United States is set by each state. Unlike most Western countries, 18 of the U.S. states do not have a legal minimum age of marriage. Individuals aged 18 have the free ability to marry in the United States states, except in Nebraska (19) and Mississippi (21). In addition, no state, except Delaware and New Jersey, forbid minors to marry in certain circumstances, such as parental consent, judicial consent, pregnancy, or a combination of these situations. In half of the states, children under 16 can be married too. In the 32 states [1] which have an absolute minimum age set by statute, this age varies between 14 and 18, while in 18 states there is no statutory minimum age if other legal conditions are met. Although in such states there is no set minimum age by statute, the traditional common law minimum age is 14 for boys and 12 for girls - ages which have been confirmed by case law in some states.[2] Over the past 15 years, more than 200,000 minors married in US, and in Tennessee girls as young as 10 were married in 2001,[3] before the state set a minimum age of 17 in 2018.[4]

Because Islam, with the help of Globalists, will upend our civilization to replace it with theirs. Race to the bottom.

Nothing civilized about it.

It's the BGH asking our BVerGE if individual examinations wouldn't be the better way to go about this ban from 2017. And they didn't even decide the case as of yet, so no.


Also wandte sich der BGH an das BVerfGE und erbat eine Prüfung, ob für die Wirksamkeit einer Kinderehe nicht besser eine Einzelfallprüfung vorgenommen werden müsse. Sonst könne insbesondere der im Grundgesetz verankerte Schutz der Ehe und Familie, aber auch der Gleichbehandlungsgrundsatz verletzt werden.

Nun soll das Bundesverfassungsgericht eine grundsätzliche Entscheidung treffen. (er)

Bun desverfassungsgericht soll Rechtmäßigkeit einer syrischen Kinderehe prüfen
