Does anyone else not find this extremely ridiculous? 12 year old girls getting married?! How can anyone with half a brain pass this law? How could any parent allow their child to do something like this? This world is so fucked up and I don’t think it will ever get better. Our society, like so many others, are trying to push our children into adulthood as soon as possible, even though they are not ready emotionally or mentally. Childhood is the shortest time in our lives, why try to rush things along for our children. If we’re not offering our children up to child molesters on a silver platter, we’re dressing them up as little whores or showing them that it is ok to be married at the age of 12. Our children are our future, and they are going to be seriously fucked up with the way this society is going.

Makes the whole slippery slope argument to homosexual marriage a little more understandable doesn’t it? To whoever supports this bill: I hope you choke on the next dick down your throat.
There. Sorry, Amanda, that’s my Christian response to this little pickle.

This is just another step in breaking down that barriers to the total sexual objectification of children. Pervs need an ever expanding market of young sex toys. And you can get them out from under their parents’ authority an protection if you grant them “consenting adult” status. Then you just have to seduce a naiive child. And if you knock her up, you can just take little muffy to the abortion clinic. Than it’s “no foul”.
Of course, we have brought this on ourselves by failing to be politically involved. Christians are so skittish about politics, but it’s a huge privilege AND responsibility we have been granted.
We think we must “Render unto Caesar” all of our rights, but what we fail to understand is that in a Democratic Republic, YOU ARE CAESAR! Under the Roman dictatorship, the only role you had was that of supplicant. You lived and died at their pleasure unless you were a Roman citizen. And even then, your rights were still much more limited than ours.
I challenge you to get involved in your local government. Join your local party org, help good people get elected, sabotage the bad ones, stay involved for the long haul. After all, that is what the libs have done. They use their rights while we just have an opinion. We may be right, but it doesn’t matter if we opt out of the system while bitching about it.

ironically, in the days of jesus (and before… and after…) females got married at those ages too. my eyes are practically rolling themselves out of my head.
