Islam, Child Marriage, and the Washington Post

The Washington Post recently published an article titled: “Six-Year-Old Afghan Girl Reportedly Sold in Marriage.” The article claims that child marriage is an Afghan tribal practice that violates the teachings of Islam. Apparently, writers at the Washington Post have never studied Islam. In Islam's most trusted sources on the life of Muhammad, we read:
Sahih Muslim 3480—It was narrated that Aishah said: “The Prophet married me when I was six years old, and consummated the marriage with me when I was nine years old.”

Sahih Muslim 3482—It was narrated from Aishah that: “The Messenger of Allah married her when she was six years old and consummated the marriage with her when she was nine years old, and he died when she was eighteen years old.”

Muhammad was illiterate like Afghan village people, who practice child marriage following footstep of Muhammad who married six-year-old girl Aisha. Like village people, Muhammad had no knowledge of child psychology and he married Aisha to fulfil his sexual lust, which is sin. Foolish Muslims not understanding Muhammad’s character even today still believe him as a prophet and commits sins. Muslims must know that they blaspheme against Holy God comparing playboy Muhammad with our Lord God Jesus Christ as prophet. Jesus Christ is coming in glorious form to judge all living and dead. Muslims be informed that at the Final Judgment Day there would be no excuse of not knowing that Jesus is God. All will be thrown into hell along with Muhammad. Quran is an evil’s mantra to brainwash ignorant and foolish people.

Thank you David for spreading good news to all of us about Jesus Christ and evil spirited Muhammad.

Seriously, how does the western press get away with this? A few years ago the Melbourne Age had an article by Karen Armstrong where she said Christian fundamentalists go so far as to call muhammad a pedophile and a terrorist. The western liberal press loves to bag Christianity while whitewashing islam.

Btw David, I think you need to do a video on whether muhammad was demon possessed?
