Why call it “marriage?” That’s a softening of the fact that this is CHILD SEX SLAVERY, as well as domestic slavery in general. These children have no say in their own lives but are born purely for use as sex toys, baby-making machines and household servants. This practice is vile and disgraceful, and no justification, religious or otherwise, will make it moral. On the contrary, if there were a God of any worth, “he” would be completely against such evil “traditions.”
The word “pedophilia” is also too soft, in that it means “child love.” This heinous practice is not “child love.” It is CHILD RAPE and CHILD ABUSE.
