How about this? I bear witness that the Prophet Muhammad is The Messenger of God, and you bear witness that he is a pedophile, I invoke God's curse on whoever of us is lying.

It's a feeding frenzy. We all love to feel righteous, don't we? It's hard to set yourself up as dominant unless there is someone to dominate. If everyone in the world had the same religion, the same sexual urges, the same language, the same clothing, the same education, and the same face, we would still go to war over who makes the best homemade Caesar Salad.
1 egg yolk
3/4 can of flat anchovie filets, finely minced
1/4 cup light olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
dash of mustard powder
1 head romaine lettuce, washed and dried
1 1/2 cups of finely shredded parmesan cheese
In a large bowl, add anchovies, garlic, mustard powder, and egg yolk. Pour in a little of the oil and whip until mixture thickens into a "mayonnaise". Add the rest of the oil and whip again, until thickened. Break the lettuce into pieces and add to the bowl. Pour parmesan on top, squeeze the lemon juice over the contents of the bowl. Turn over the bowl until the leaves are well coated with the mixture. Serve with croutons on top. Do not attempt to kiss anyone for 1 week.

ok I see you said you were'nt trying to defend his actions but still... look, in order to even be attracted to a child in a sexual way you would have to have something wrong going on in your brain... I dont know exactly what the condition is called but its a fact... and what does it matter that in his time having sex with little kids and marrying them was ok???... a couple hundred years ago it was ok to keep blacks as slaves and hang them for stupid reasons, and not to long ago it was ok to keep blacks segregated... just because it was accepted at a time does it mean we have to respect it??? im sure alot of people dont respect what the racist people did to people of other races years ago... so why is it ok to respect and even honor this man??? just cause he was allah's go to guy??? thats total bs dude

This is off topic, but only slightly. Say what you want about polygamous societies, but there is one thing they absolutely cure. Married women using sex to coerce their husbands.
"What's that? You're upset that I came home from work a little late, and don't want to have sex tonight? No problem, I'll go get it from my OTHER wife."
I have seen so many women sleep with a guy whom they KNOW is sleeping with other women at the same time they are seeming the chick, I am now almost fully convinced that women are polygamous by nature. (Note: I didn't say polyandrous. That's a different discussion)
Want proof? Check out STD rates, and compare REAL NUMBERS when broken out by gender. It will show you that a great majority of the women with STDs are having sex with a relative few number of men. I never noticed it until someone pointed it out to me.
Now, as to the 9 year old thing. I'm not going to defend him on that; however, we had a case recently where there was a 12 year old STRIPPER working in a club. Even her own mother said that she had the body of a 21 year old. It is possible the same thing happened with this girl (i.e., was physically mature beyond her age). Or, he was just a pedophile. He didn't seem to have taken any other young girls as wives, so it doesn't show a pattern.
In conclusion, having a 9 year old wife is wrong, wrong, wrong. By any standards. But is this truth, or propaganda? I haven't done enough research to know.

I think I'm going to throw up.
Women are not naturally polyagamists if some their men are naturally unfaithful. You really don't understand women much and should read: men are from mars, women are from venus. As to a well-developed 9 year old, I remember one girl from elementary school like that, but I will point out, she still looked incredibly young. And the idea of usurping the natural will and sovereignty of a child and force them to be with anyone, let alone an old geizer is BARBARIC USUARY.
And there is one report in the Tabaqat that `A'ishah was nine years of age at the time of nikah. Again it is a fact admitted on all hands that the nikah of `A'ishah took place in the tenth year of the Call in the month of Shawwal. This is while there is also preponderance of evidence as to the consummation of her marriage taking place in the second year of Hijrah in the same month, which shows that full five years had elapsed between the nikah and the consummation. Hence, there is not the least doubt that `A’isha was at least nine or ten years of age at the time of betrothal, and fourteen or fifteen years at the time of marriage.
