Well are those things True? Is Muhammad a womanizer and a pedophile?
We know he has many wives. Some long term, some short term and many concubines.
Here's a detailed breakdown 1000mistakes.com...
Is Muhammad a pedophile?
We know he married a 6 year old girl named Aisha or Aishah, and had sex with her at the age of 9. Some try to say the girl was older and recalculate
her age but this fellows reasoning looks sound and places her age at 9 years of age.
Aishah. His famous and infamous child bride. She was the daughter of his good friend and co-worker Abu Bakr (later the first caliph). The
connection was established in 623 AD, when she was just 6 years old – and he 53 (or 54) – 47 (or 48) years older than her, though married life –
sex – did not start until 3 years later, when she was 9. Many react against his marrying a child and having sex with a 9-year-old (the reason why
many Muslims accept child marriage and sex from the girl is 9). But the really black spot is not that he had sex with a 9 year old girl. The really
black spot is that he had a child as his favourite wife all through her childhood – she was just 15 when he died. (Some Muslims claim sex did not
start until she was 17 – but by then Muhammad had been dead for 2 years if the times are correct).
I used this one site for both examples because of the details but this same discussion is all over the internet.
You can draw your own conclusions.
Now whats happening in Australia?
The Australian contingent of Muslims has put pressure on the government to make saying things about Muhammad that ' some" Muslims don't agree with a
Much like the Muslim Brotherhood ( an extremist movement) demands the "West" criminalize assaults on Islam.
Without the “criminalization of assaults on the sanctities of all heavenly religions,” the Muslim Brotherhood warned on Thursday, insults
to Islam “will continue to cause devout Muslims across the world to suspect and even loathe the West, especially the USA.”
In this example, an Australian woman was convected of the crime of saying Muhammad was a Paedophile
This means in Australia tensions are going to run a little higher on both sides over this movie controversy
Muslims don't want governments to apply their own existing laws to them, they want special laws made just for them that allow them to force their
world view on people - simply because they are a religion. Luckily in America, we have freedom of speech. They hate this about us and seek to change
They cannot prove that Muhammad was not a womanizer or a peadophile any more than someone can prove Moses parted the Red Sea with his magic staff, but
their own writings do seem to point in these directions. I say if the shoe fit's, wear it.
Moses wasn't perfect either. He killed a man in cold blood and was denied access into The Holy Land that he had worked so many years to lead his
people to. You don't see Christians or Jews getting in an uproar every time someone calls Moses a Murderer. In fact, many of the Kings of Israel and
Judea committed horrible crimes even though they were considered men of God. The Bible tells us God was angry with them for these actions and later
they repented and turned back toward God. I wonder if Muhammad repented. I don't think the Quran tells us.
