Islam vs Christianity in Nigeria

A marriage took place in Nigeria. Senator Ahmad Sani Yerima, 49yo, just married a 13 year old Egyptian girl. It was a festive ceremony held under the Capital's National Mosque in front of an elite audience. According to reports, this is Yermina 2nd child bride. He married a 15yo before divorcing her at 17 while she nurses his child.

Ahmad Sani Yerima, 49, is alleged to have married her at the national mosque in Abuja several weeks ago. Senators called for the investigation after receiving a petition by protesting women's groups, who believe Mr Sani has broken the law. The senator has not spoken publicly about the reports of his marriage.

The BBC's Caroline Duffield, in Lagos, says Nigeria's human rights commission has already begun an investigation.

Mr Sani was the governor of Zamfara state, where he oversaw the introduction of Sharia law - for the first time in a northern state - in 1999. Our correspondent says reports of the marriage - appearing in newspapers - are creating a storm among human rights groups. 

The female senators, lawyers and doctors who are protesting say that they fear for the child's health. "What we are concerned with is that our minors, the girl child, should be allowed to mature, before going into marriage," Mma Wokocha, President of the Women's Medical Association and one of those behind the petition, told the BBC.

"This very evil act should not be seen to be perpetrated by one of our distinguished legislators ... that is what we are saying.''

The senator is reported to have paid a dowry of $100,000 (£66,000) to the child's parents - and to have brought the girl into Nigeria from Egypt.

The women's groups want Mr Sani to be taken to court, to face a fine and a jail sentence. Our reporter says the whereabouts of the teenager are unknown - and it is not clear whether she has any parent or guardian with her. Newspaper reports have also accused the senator of having previously married a 15-year-old girl in 2006. Link  Link

Here is Senator Ahmad Sani Yerima. Yeah - he's a looker for young teenage girls.

Yerima consider himself a devout Muslim and when he became governor, he championed the Shariah court system which its laws are based on Islamic Scripture and decrees. Smells like a Theocracy has taken over. Thousands have died due to the Shariah Law. And yet, the maker and ruler of such laws can interpret the laws however they feel fit - even condoning human trafficking of children and forced marriage.

Now before Christians begin their judgments and pointing fingers on how evil the entire Islam religion is, less they forget that any law rooted in Theocracy (even Christianity) will have the same ugly effect. All religious leaders have and will misinterpret whatever Scriptures to condone their crimes, hatred, and their sins.

All Religion have been used to justify pedophilia, forced marriages and polygamy.

If Christians don't believe that their own Jesus-loving-Christ religion have been used for such heinous acts, let me remind you (to list a few):

Tony Alamo - Christian Evangelist from Texarkana, Arkansas

Warren Jeffs of the Latter-Day Saints

Hell, the entire Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints

The whole Catholic Church scandal and their coverup!

And of course the scapegoat that everyone of these religious nuts and defenders would use is to link pedophilia to homosexuality.

Pfffft!

Religious fanatics are among the most vicious, egregious, chronic child abusers in the world.

How many of us are concerned about the extreme religious right-wing radicals trying to push their Christian Laws into our US Constitution?

This is why Separation of Church and State is paramount and must be defended!!!!!

What a shame that you can take such a HIDEOUS crime and spin it for your own agenda!! Everyone will be held accountable INDIVIDUALY for what they do in this world. To prejudice against any group based on the EVIL doings of a few is WRONG!! You WILL answer to JESUS CHRIST, who died for your sins, just like everyone else, as an INDIVIDUAL. I'd hate to be in your shoes when you have to explain this piece of blasphemed GARBAGE!!! If I were you I'd ask for forgiveness and to be saved, and FAST! Before it's too late, and you can't take all that you've done and all that you've said back. God Bless
