The Grotesque Immorality of Mainstream Islamic Ethics (Part 2)

I am a Canadian ex-Muslim. In Part 1 of this series, I addressed the cult-like nature of Mohammedanism and the harsh realities of Islamic apostasy. In this segment, I will address the permissibility of rape in Islamic theology.

Rape and pedophilia are considered by most human beings to be the worst of crimes. And yet sadly, Islam’s most revered and authoritative texts (the Qur’an, hadiths and sira), confirmed by the perverse behaviour of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam (the model for Muslim believers to emulate – cf. Qur’an 33:21), record that both rape and pedophilia are permissible for Muslims.

The penalty for blasphemy against “Allah and His Prophet” is typically death in Muslim-majority countries. Fortunately, I do not live in a Sharia state or a Muslim-majority country, or I would be hung from the nearest tree by the Islamic government or a Muslim mob, for the crime of leaving Islam.
