In case you were wondering whether Muslims were planning to move into the 21st century with the rest of us, you have your answer.

Spoiler alert: No.

Lawmakers in Turkey are actually working to make it legal to rape a child victim as long as you marry said child after the crime occurs. Of course[2], you don’t even have to do that as long as you don’t get caught by the authorities.

The ruling party of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the AKP, has provoked outcry after they proposed the bill which would see the pardoning over some 3,000 child rapists. According to the AKP, the bill is intended to benefit men who have had sex with a minor they are in a relationship with, and deal with the complications of child marriage within the country the Telegraphreports.

The new bill would be a reversal of a law that was passed over a decade ago in 2005 that criminalized child rape regardless if the victim and the attacker were married or not. The new bill also stipulates that if the marriage does not work out and the two parties agree to a divorce then the rapist would once again be arrested for the crime and continue any deferred sentence.

Minister of Justice Bekir Bozdag defended the bill saying that it would help in cases where the girl became pregnant by keeping the man around in her life and able to provide economic assistance to her and their child.

“Those who say ‘rapists will benefit from this’ are distorting the situation,” he added.

That’s quite the spin, but the truth is that “keeping the rapist around” is not the answer! Criminalizing rapists and prosecuting them to the fullest extent of the law is! This is such a backward law that it’s actually got me seething!
