How Jesus blessed and commanded and protected child sex abuse/child rape

It has been stated by Christian supporters of Roy Moore in 2017 that if he tampered with young girls this was not a sin or much of a sin. The fact remains that many people who read their Bibles and know their history is that "God's word" does indeed fail to condemn child sex abuse. It even commands it in marriage for girls were wed to essential strangers at 10 or 11. God requires sex on the first night and a sheet had to be shown with blood on it to prove the female was a virgin. She was to be murdered by stoning by divine command if she was not a virgin. The bleeding was not necessarily due to a hymen being broken but to the girl being underage. A female child raped in a city was forced to wed the attacker. Attempts are made to deny it is rape but it is for she is a maiden - a child. It is said the marriage was justified for no other man would take a violated virgin! But not all girls did marry!! And it would not be a marriage but a social construct.

There are condemnations of bestiality and adultery and gay sex and no mention of the respect due to the sexual innocence of a child. Silence is consent anyway. But silence is more consent in a holy book which claims the right to be obeyed as the word of God and which encourages people to see that they must obey the book just because it says they must do it.

Those biblical cultures did accept men having sex with girls whose bodies were not ready for sex or having babies. Men married female children. There are several clues in the Bible that a man is allowed to molest the child he "marries." The child at least should have the right to get away from the husband who raped her and abused her and who could divorce her to get his hands on a new child bride. Jesus reinforced these evil paedophilic doctrines by saying that a girl cannot divorce her husband or she becomes an adulteress if she weds another. What is worse is he was being hypothetical for women did not have a right to divorce in his society. Calling her an adulteress was abusive in itself and was virtually calling for her murder for the Jewish God had decreed death by stoning for adulteresses. (And Jesus made no attempt to do away with stoning in his ministry. The adulteress who was brought to him for stoning was brought to him as a test but even then he said she should be stoned but only by worthy accusers. He did not stone her for it was not his place and it was never done by one person. And it was a test anyway.)

Reason proves that marrying a female child is not possible for she cannot consent and her body is not ready. Jesus banned her from remarrying implying that her null and void marriage was real. Annulling underage weddings is a Catholic novelty.

Jesus saying that he wanted little children to come to him does not mean he cared about the sexual abuse of young girls in marriage for lots of Rabbi's welcomed children as well.

I repeat: the fact remains that these female children were forced into marriage, were too young as well and had every right and perhaps the duty to leave their husbands. A male could easily divorce his child bride and marry another so that you have serial child molesting of serial child-brides.

A young man was found with Jesus in suspicious circumstances the night he was arrested. A young man [boy] wearing nothing but a linen garment, was following Jesus and alone with him in the garden. When they seized him he fled naked, leaving his garment behind. Read Mark 14. Note: young man is neaniskos, meaning he was in the prime of his life, perhaps 15 to 25 years old. As boys married young the young man was behaving like a single lad. So he was very very young. The New Testament hardly ever uses neaniskos - it prefers other words - which shows it was trying to communicate how young the boy was. If Jesus had not been liquidated for sedition it would have been child molestation. Naked always is associated with degradation and shame and a symbol for sexual abuse. Mark did not need to mention the nakedness so we have innuendo here. This is not a problem for Mark for he was clear that Jesus' message mattered not Jesus for Jesus even told a man he was not a good teacher as in good person. The other gospels leave the story of the boy out for obvious reasons! Matthew for example liked to use Mark's work and adjust it in places in order to make Jesus look good.

The story of Jesus starts with Mary conceiving him without sexual intercourse. I think that the expression that Jesus is being conceived by the Holy Spirit is a euphemism for Mary conceiving by a human sperm without full sex. She was probably molested by Joseph which resulted in a “miraculous” pregnancy. It would have seemed marvellous in an age that did not understand about eggs and sperms. Whatever the conception means the word is there and it was thought to have something to do with human seed and that is the bottom line. When Joseph took her to wife he had to take her that day to the chupa and then present the bedclothes stained with blood from her hymen to the authorities as proof that it was a real marriage and she was a virgin and he was capable of sex.

Jesus took responsibility for what his Church does when he said you tell a bad prophet who is a wolf in sheep's clothing only by the fruits that follow them.  If there is no incriminating evidence against the prophet you must look at what his followers do for they are his spiritual brethren.  Was Jesus a paedophile himself when his religion has had such a huge problem with that issue?

Jesus facilitated a culture that commanded and celebrated and protected rapists of female children.  He didn't have to validate it but he did.
