Saudi Marriage Official Says 1-Year-Old Brides OK

Call it marriage, Islamic style.

Saudi marriage officiant Dr. Ahmad al-Mu’bi told Lebanese television viewers last week that it’s permissible for girls as young as 1 to marry — as long as sex is postponed.

Al-Mu’bi’s remarkable comments also included an explanation that “there is no minimal age for entering marriage.”

“You can have a marriage contract even with a 1-year-old girl, not to mention a girl of 9, 7 or 8,” he said. “But is the girl ready for sex or not?” What is the appropriate age for sex for the first time? This varies according to environment and tradition,” al-Mu’bi said.

    Sick, just sick. How on earth can a 1-yr-old 'enter into a contract'?

    Oh, but the worst is yet to come..they're even asking whether relations should be allowed. Any sane, rational human being would not even ask such a sick question.

    Expect the liberal left to try and cover this up, they're good at that.
