Most comments under the original article speak of outrage. Some go off topic and discuss the Bible, Koran and atheism. All fine.

Then this comment by Islamic man came up. I think I died a little inside.

Please Americans do not judge. Us Muslims and believers of Islam do things the Islamic way and the Holy book guides us everyday on how to live a moral and faithful life. This may be confusion to non believers, but assure you that if you were Muslim, marrying your rapist makes total sense. Americans are not of our faith and therefore ignorant of what is right and wrong. May Allah forgive this woman of committing this un-Islamic and coward like act.

I have seen this exact attitude thousands of times, by both islamists and western liberals so its about basic education on what is religion, how and why it was created, what is morality, how religion shits on the word and concept of morality etc. etc.
