Let’s make a list of religious prophets! But only the ones who, having convinced their faithful followers that they spoke the word of God, suddenly received revelations to the effect that God totally wanted them to fuck children or adolescents. I know of three to start with. Let’s have some more, with references!
- Muhammad, Islam’s Prophet. In sura 33:50, God told the Prophet: “We made lawful for you [several categories of women]. Also, if a believing woman gave herself to the prophet—by forfeiting the dowry—the prophet may marry her without a dowry, if he so wishes. However, her forfeiting of the dowry applies only to the prophet, and not to the other believers.”. He then married a 9-10-year-old.
- Joseph Smith, Mormonism’s Prophet. When the Prophet was 37 (or possibly 25) God told him that polygyny would be a new covenant, that anyone rejecting it would be damned and that if his first wife complained about this then Christ would destroy her. Smith married at least nine teenage girls, the youngest of them aged 14.
- David Koresh, Prophet of the Branch Davidians. Having established the Waco compound, the Prophet announced a new theology called the New Light, which prescribed polygamy for him only. He then promptly began sleeping with the 12 and 14-year-old daughters of two cult members.
