Ahmadinejad Says Girls Should Marry At 16

From his undying fans at Reuters:

Girls should marry aged 16-18: Iran’s Ahmadinejad

Sun Nov 21, 2010

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the best age for girls to get married was between 16 and 18, Iranian newspapers reported on Sunday.

Analysts say such announcements could be part of the government’s efforts to gain support among young voters.

Iran’s parliament in 2004 raised the legally acceptable age of marriage for girls to 15 from nine.

But only after being shamed into it. (If it is still possible to shame Iran.)

"The best age for marriage is between 16 to 18 for girls and 19 to 21 for boys," the Mardomsalari newspaper quoted Ahmadinejad as saying…

Is there anything that Mr. Ahmadinejad does not know? By the way, are these real marriages or Islam’s wonderfully convenient ‘temporary marriages‘?

Iranians struggle to cope with international sanctions and deepening economic uncertainty. The official inflation rate is about 10 percent and unemployment about 15 percent…

Oddly enough, the AP claims Iran’s unemployment rate is only 9 percent. Still, we’re not quite sure what unemployment has to do with marriage.

The authorities have been encouraging marriage as a way to fight what they call the "spread of immorality among youth."

Are they running out of stones?

    Yes but is he talking about them marrying each other or more likely he thinks the young girls should marry some old letch in his fifties and the boys 19 – 21 should just have the temporary marriages so they can create more suicide bombers.

    Aren’t closed societies great?

    Yes, those 16-year-old girls are prone to immorality.

    Better to employ them in “chastity houses” where they can sleep with old men for 2, 4, or even 6 hours. Surely “temporary marriage” to a polygamist will cure the girls’ sin.

    Chastity houses….not even Orwell could make a euphemism that bad.

    NAMBLA should really try to attract Muslims to their rooster.

    From Khomeini, “supreme leader” of Iran’s Little Green Book, written in the 1980s:

    A man can have sex with animals such as sheep, cows, camels and so on. However, he should kill the animal after he has his orgasm.”

    A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate vaginally, but sodomising the child is acceptable. If a man does penetrate and damage the child then, he should be responsible for her subsistence all her life. This girl will not count as one of his four permanent wives and the man will not be eligible to marry the girl’s sister… It is better for a girl to marry at such a time when she would begin menstruation at her husband’s house, rather than her father’s home. Any father marrying his daughter so young will have a permanent place in heaven.

    A woman who has contracted a continuing marriage does not have the right to go out of the house without her husband’s permission; she must remain at his disposal for the fulfillment of any one of his desires, and may not refuse herself to him except for a religiously valid reason. If she is totally submissive to him, the husband must provide her with her food, clothing, and lodging, whether or not he has the means to do so. A woman who refuses herself to her husband is guilty, and may not demand from him food, clothing, lodging, or any later sexual relations…”

    Translation: slave!
    The pigs of Islam oink again.

    • proreason says:

      The Muslim religion is designed to subjegate women. That is the only reason it exists.

      Of course, you might argue that Islam is designed to wage war on non-Muslim cultures. I would respond that when you have hundreds of millions of frustrated young men, you have to keep them busy somehow….and you also must make sure that they don’t survive long enough to interfere with the Mullah’s pleasures.

      It’s a nice tight circle, isn’t it?

    I’m just surprised Reuters didn’t follow the typical template and identify Ahmadman as a Conservative.
