the world seems to be afraid of "offending" the "immigrant" and while words like islamophobic are becoming more and more common.. we allow cruelity and injustice to go on in the name of "multiculturalism"

@Unseen - I sympathize with your concern, but that is the meaning of compromise. It doesn't mean marrying off children as you put it. I'm only saying that if one can demonstrate several things, such as the fact that the person, young man or young woman, is not abused, exploited, etc. and is not a child, but a young adult, then we could afford to lower the age of consent for identifiable groups for whom this is valued (for whatever reason). But I would never support lowering an age of consent to a prepubescent age, which is the common practice in rural areas of some Islamic countries (northwest Iran Azeri's for example - which is where my family is from).
@Strega - exactly, not all young ladies that marry older men are abused. Every situation is different, but genital mutliation is always abuse (assault and battery and few other things). - kk
Frankly - and I don't believe this comes from any form of upbringing, religious or otherwise - I can't even imagine a scenario in which I would want to have sex with a prepubscent girl. That strikes me as more of a control issue, than a sexual one - get them too young to say no to anything. The only caveat Islam has, is that they must be old enough to bear the weight of a man.
I further can't imagine a prepubescent girl wanting to have, even looking forward to having, sex with me, and without desire, all that remains is mechanics.
