This is the inevitable consequence of progressives advocating that no culture is any better than another, only different. If they celebrate all cultures and genuinely believe that there is no basis for judging one to better than another, on what grounds can progressives oppose child marriage?
The story suggests that child marriage is a ruse to get a US visa. No doubt that is true in many cases, but child marriage is inherent to certain Muslim and other primitive cultures. It is not necessarily a ruse, but quite likely to be a genuine expression of another culture.
This is what the post-modern progressive movement has wrought. Democrats, are you pleased with your work?
Agree wholeheartedly. The Protestant culture what led to individual growth in God is what led to the Anglo culture abolishing slavery. Yet today we import sex slavery under the guise of calling it "marriage".
