So it's ok for Christians to pick and choose the parts of the bible they follow, but Muslims can't do the same? It was commonplace for all religions at that time to take child brides going back to babylon and egypt, they were all the same.
Mary was 13-15 when she had Jesus. Maybe God's a bit of a peado too then. Joseph was older and was a widower with children from his first wife apparently. Some scholars believe he may have been old as 50 or more when Jesus was born.
Christianity has been through the enlightenment, Islam has yet to experience this process, this is a massive problem for cohesion and integration, regardless of your relativistic acrobatics
