OK, I personally know Muslims who think Mohammad married and consummated his marriage with 9 year old. Of course not every Muslim thinks this, some Muslims (particularly women and educated people) say his wife was 18 at the youngest and more likely was 25. Regardless of this, I think we would all agree Mohammad (even as a literary character) was not a pedo. He didn't surround himself with lots of children. That's something a pedo would do. Mohammad, if he existed, if he is a composit, if he didn't exist at all, well, he seems to have been your average nomadic Arab and was just doing what was normal - back then, the way nomads in the desert lived 1400 years ago. Back then it was normal to make an military alliance by taking a man's daughter. If in this case that man's daughter was a 9 year old girl, well, for back then this was probably considered normal :shrug: Of course, I think we all agree that by today's standards, if you saw a 50+ year old man tongue-and-gumming with a 9 year old - well, you'd punch him square in the nose. But, back then, yeah, that sort of behavior was considered acceptable. Normal even. So? Do we all agree Mohammad was NOT a pedo?
