Skip to comments.Apparently I might have offended Mohammed (Vanity sorry)

I've been informed that I might be in trouble. During a tutorial yesterday, I was asked a question regarding Islam.
I answered it correctly. I elaborated a bit and correctly stated that Mohammed's third wife was 7 when he married her and he was 50. I then correctly stated that under British law this would be considered paedophilia, as our law states that one has to be 16 with parental consent to get married and if a man married a 7 year-old he'd be arrested as a paedophile.
I'm told that I've now offended Mohammed and apparently I might be in trouble.
This is what it's come to. You tell the truth, you're in trouble.
I feel like giving up :(
I’m seriously thinking of resigning. If I can’t do my job correctly, if I’d told what I can and cannot say, if I’m told I can’t tell historical truths....then I’m going to resign.
What does your heart say?
That was obviously a different time and they had different beliefs back then. But America’s Founders are still racists for having slaves.
The Red Pope is going to make it all better with Is Slime, so things will only get worse for truth telling ...
Just watch your back. Muslims are very unimaginative when it comes to how they respond to people with whom they have disagreements.
Make them fire you then take them to court and make them state clearly that you told the legal truth and were fired for it. Then crucify them publicaly.
DO NOT RESIGN!
That I don’t want to resign.
I can envisage a full-on witch hunt being launched by Leftists on me though.
....But Americas Founders are still racists for having slaves....
And, what do you call the African muslims who captured them, put them in chains, marched them to the Atlantic, and sold them into slavery?
What’s the saying?
During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
Sign of the times. Maybe you could ask them to point out to you what you said that was not true. It may give them pause for thought, but don’t get your hopes up.
Lucy, good luck with whatever comes down. You now see why Freedom of Speech as a core Right in one’s Constitution is so important.
Mark Steyn went through some real BS with a Human Rights Council in Canada. You might look into that episode. He ultimately prevailed, though it was painful.
Push back. Maybe reach out for help to the BNP? The local equivalent of the ACLU?
I close with a truism:
“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”
Which last I find is misattributed to Voltaire. It is nonetheless true.
Don’t resign. I don’t know what work you do, but whatever it is I’m sure they need people who are not brainwashed.
I’m sure you have co-workers who admire your truth-telling. They just don’t have the courage to do it.
I’ve been paranoid all day.
Be careful because there are a couple FBI warnings out for ME people harassing Military families.
Don’t quit. Smile at them very sweetly and say, “To deny any of that is to deny the historical truth of Islam.” (Which is is, very precisely). “You’re not against Islam, are you? Because I would hate to have to lay a complaint against you for intolerance.”
What a fine idea.
I have small dogs who probably would not chew it, but strategically placed in an area they are likely to pee, could give hours of good clean fun.
I know I have support, I know there are people who are on my side.
The enemies are the usual suspects, Leftists + Politically Correct joining forces with Islam crowd already living here.
