Why do liberals defend the Prophet Muhammad?

He was a mass murderer, paedophile and was married to his own aunt. He founded a violent, primitive and beastly religion.

    He was a sixth century Arab warlord. It's not reasonable to judge him by modern standards.

    No one really knows how old Ayesha was when Mohammed married her; she could have been anywhere between 9 and 16 years of age. Besides, arranged marriages to children for purposes of state were not restricted to the Middle East. John II of England married Isabella of Angoulême when she was 14. Richard II married Isabella of Valois when she was SIX years old, in 1396, but you never see anyone whining that he was a paedophile for some mysterious reason.

    --  How was Mohammed a mass murderer?  He never killed anyone himself.

    --  How was Mohammed a paedophile?  Marriage of young girls was common amongst most religions and nations when he was alive, and even before for many hundreds of years. Even Mary, a Jewish girl and the mother of Jesus, was probably married at 11-12 and had Jesus when she was 12-13 years old. Marriage to 10 years old girls was common on the US, Britain and many European Christian nations 150 years ago and and earlier. Many 12 years old were being married 100 years ago and even 50 years ago 13 year-olds were being married in some American states.

    --  Polygamy has been common in may religions including Christianity.  

    --  Marriage with second cousins and further distant relations, by blood or marriage, has always been common in many religions, again even with Christians.

    They don’t defend or attack him. They just don’t believe in persecuting people of other faiths the way you do.

    It beats me. The earliest Sira says it all. He was clearly no 'prophet'

    In what way is this question about somebody who lived centuries ago in any way about a current event? And why do people like you make so much about him marrying a preteen all those years ago when American adults have legally been marrying preteens into the 21st century?

    You do realize the concept of "childhood" and the age of sexual consent are very modern, right? It's only come about in the past 150 to 200 years.

    That's why British and other European societies had no issue executing young kids for crimes or sending them down mines or up dirty chimneys.Muhammed existed a long time ago, in the 6th or 7th century. There was no concept of "paedophilia" then, adults bonking preteens and young teens was the norm pretty much everywhere. I remember as recently as the 1990s men in their early 20s "dating" girls as young as 14 and people knowing but not caring because they thought it was acceptable age gap seeing as teen girls are "soooooo mature for their age, not like the silly boys", despite it being illegal. 

    This is why the police and many others wrote off the Rotherham, Telford and Rochdale victims as slags and prostitutes.

    You describe the probable mentally deranged Mohammed accurately, just leaving out six wives, one of whom was 9 years old.  I've never heard of a liberal defend the monster.  Some do say religious freedom means accepting rights for his modern day followers.

    I don't know many liberals who believe in fairy tales. We usually leave that kind of thing to religious right wingers.
