We have right to question. Prophet Muhammed is a pedophile he married aisha at 6 and consummated his marriage at 9 according to Wikipedia. Why can't we question this and say its wrong? Why should be people scared to point this out?

Everyone should indeed have the right to question Islam (or any other religion for that matter) without the fear of being physically harmed or killed. That being said, I also think that at this point the Aisha thing is just beating a dead horse. There are many more important criticisms pertaining to the modern day cultures, practices, and interpretations of Islam than what the prophet was supposedly doing with a 9 year old girl nearly 1500 years ago.

Question, mock, lampoon, tease and demand justification of their entire existence and claims. NO religion has any "right" to anything, least of demand respect from anyone. They should be expected to justify every single thing they claim, they should to justify their existence for every second of every minute of every hour of every day.

I have to agree with Becca on this one. The whole "he married and fucked a child" thing is sort of small potatoes. It's horrible by our standards, but way back when it was common practice. European Royalty did it all the time. It doesn't make it right, it doesn't make it any less deplorable, but there are more important things to be questioning, more important battles to be fought. If you want to Lampoon every historical figure who married an "underage" girl, you're going to be busy for a very, very long time.

I think Pat says it all. Thanks Robert.

We should question all beliefs. 

It seem to me a significant factor for religions and their beliefs to survive is to suppress questioning - Muslims appear to have a propensity to be physically violent and/or kill people, and Christians try to make you believe you'll go to hell if you don't "believe."  And these sheeple continue to believe in and perpetuate their imaginary friends. 

But imaginary friends/religion, to me, seem pretty easy to criticize (and ridicule).  And I'm very grateful to live in America, where our secular Constitution, for now, protects our ability to freely criticize religion.

Historical context.

I think they love it. It gives the child rapist locked up inside them the excuse to come out without shame, and if they're lucky even get the opportunity to marry and rape a little girl of their own.

The argument shouldn't be personalized upon Muhammad marrying a 9 years old girl .. the argument should be based upon the fact that islam allows pedophilia and calls it marriage as @archaeopteryx mentioned above.

Pedophilia is not prohibited in islam based on the fact that Muhammad himself married a 9 yrs old child.

it may be a historical content or a dead horse in many regions in the world but its not dead yet here in the islamic world.

we have the right to question why Islam didn't prohibit pedophilia , why Islam didn't prohibit slavery, why Islam didn't give women equal rights as men?

we have to ask these questions and we have to demand answers as well (reasonable answers ofc ourse)
