her rapist' from church in Florida

Talk about living under a rock! I am appalled at this news! I want you all to know that I did hear and write an article about child brides who weren't Middle Eastern or from some other non-white religion or country. But they (the white child brides were not Americans, I'm almost positive about this). At the time I found that article and wrote a commentary regarding it, I had no idea American (children under the age of 16 & from various races and religions) children, in some states, are being forcibly married off.
While reading various Internet articles about this, I came across one article that mentioned an African slave who was forced into marriage at age 14, this was common in the 1800's - Few realize that it is still common in today's society. This same article mentioned Country music singer Loretta Lynn's 1976 autobiography titled, "I Was Born A Coalminer's Daughter" in which she tells her story about being an American child bride at age 13.
I sincerely and naively thought that after this true life movie, the idea of child brides had died off or taken a nosedive. Boy was I wrong!
Those Americans who hold to the notion that Muslims are the only ones marrying children, they need to wake the heck up! This is so unbelievable! How could this be happening in America? I thought we'd found our moral compass regarding this urgent matter! We have not!
You'll find out after reading this shocking article that there are even law makers striking down laws, in Florida for example, that would up the age for a person to get legally married to 18-years-of-age. The laws in Florida (where this 10-year-old girl - the focus of this article) allow parents to sign consent for children under 16-years-old to marry! SHOCKING!!! Right?
I don't want to think about this tragedy any further. I'll let you read this article for yourself and make your own decision on whether its right or wrong for a man to marry a child - especially after he's raped her; that is sick and disgusting!
