    Child bride beats parents arranged wedding plan

    A 16-YEAR-OLD girl secretly took legal action against her parents to escape an arranged marriage.


    The teen, who cannot be identified, asked a court to place her on the airport watch list to stop her parents whisking her to Lebanon and forcing her to wed a young man she had met just once, the Herald Sun reported.
    The court said such applications were becoming increasingly common.
    Federal magistrate Joe Harman said he was satisfied there was a psychological risk to the girl unless the court intervened.
    "The young person's evidence makes very clear that she has expressed to her parents that she does not want to go to Lebanon and does not want to marry the person proposed," he said.



    "She has indicated also in her evidence that she is fearful for her personal safety, that she has concerns as to what will occur in relation to her mother's reaction once she becomes aware of these proceedings."
    Mr Harman said while it might be suggested the young woman had bucked the authority of her parents, she had displayed great bravery in seeking legal help.
    "It is not the right of any parent to cause their child to be married against their will, whether in accordance with Australian law or otherwise," he said.
    Mr Harman restrained the girl's parents from removing her from Australia and from harassing, threatening or intimidating her, or questioning her about the court proceedings.
    He ordered that they surrender her passport to the court.

    He also ordered the girl be placed on the airport watch list and Australian Federal Police maintain an airport watch for her.

    The orders were made just two weeks before the planned wedding in the Middle East in April.

    Details of the case have been revealed in a judgment published only this week.

    The girl told the NSW court her father was aware of the proposed marriage but generally opposed it.
    Mr Harman said that if she were taken to Lebanon, she would return married.
    If the wedding were to take place in Australia, a court order and parental consent would be required because of the girl's age.
    The Herald Sun reported last September that the Family Court had banned a 14-year-old would-be bride from leaving Australia.

    I'm sure the little genius has a plan for them. She'll turn them in as aL Qaeda and soon she'll be alone at home enjoying her favorite TV shows while the rest of her relatives are being waterboarded at Guantanamo.

    Archaic, pre-medieval belief systems are the main stumbling block to social harmony and world peace.
    Every horrifying war executed by mankind has been encouraged by our megalomanic political leaders, by invoking a "GOD" blessing.

    Fuck that god!

    Religion has been the cloak under which every government or movement has sneaked under to promote their greedy aims.

    There is not one religion ever that has not been corrupted by our so called leaders.
    Not one.

    The bravery of the above young lady exemplified in her refusal to bow down to phony religious edict can only be admired and supported by any humane person.

    May more innocents free themselves from the totally corrupt bondage of religious and state persecution.

    Long live the freedom of the people!

    Only to someone completely insane, is it any wonder she doesn't want to marry some dirty muzzie?

    Not to mention the fact when there's so many available (eligible) "Beer Swilling Sheep Shaggers" available in the land of Oz?

    While I agree with your general point that religion causes a lot of suffering around the world, its a bit stupid to say religion has been the cause or a main contributary factor in all wars.

    For example, WW2 was triggered by the rise of fascism, a viciously anti-religious political doctrine, as well as the many wars relating to Communism, another anti-religious dogma.

    I suppose the fact that she too is a "dirty muzzie" had escaped your attention?

    And did they learn anything? No, since about 65 years later, the Pope (also an ex-Nazi) allowed himself to be photographed with Bush, who is responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths in Iraq.

    As for the girl, this is a rare event, but a useful purpose for all that annoying airport security could be spotting persons, particularly children and potential trafficking victims who are boarding flights they appear not to want to be on.

    ^^Well, that's me told then!

    Seriously though, they did close churches and kill a lot of priests as well as the obvious jew related stuff. Yeah, they weren't strictly 100% anti religion but tell that to the millions they did persecute because of their religion. Admittedly, my statement on fascism was partially wrong.

    But the bit about Communism definitley still stands.

    The opinion that I hold to is that Communism became the proxy state religion.

    When reading accounts of how state allegiance was fostered in USSR, it involved a father figure of almost omnipotent stature.

    An unquestioning belief in the veracity and power of the President and Politburo, who were literally worshipped/adored with zealous fervour was more like a religious movement.

    The removal of anything greater than the power of the state allowed for only state worship and allegiance.

    The key element of religious compliance being belief in a superior being, the state.
