Absolutely Disgusting.

The following story absolutely disgusts me. Brace yourself.

CNN is reporting that a Saudi judge has recently refused to annul a marriage between an 8-year old girl and a 47-year old man (other sources are saying 58, even worse). The child's father married the two to, get this, settle his debts. The judge asked the man to not, ahem, consummate the marriage until the girl reaches puberty. Yea, ok.

The judge, also in his infinite wisdom, ruled that when the girl reaches puberty, she will have the right to request a divorce by filing a petition with the court.

Nothing like raping children in the name of God.
