The story bothers me on so many levels I found it nearly impossible to collect my thoughts. But Possumomma, aka the Atheist in a Minivan, expresses my thoughts exactly.
Please read her take on this.
Her bottom line is this:
This isn't about religion or religious freedom. It's about rape. It's about child neglect and abuse. And, it's time to end it.While I agree with that, I'll take it a step a further.
This is a society where powerful men, under the pretense of religion are using girls and women as playthings.
