Authorities in Sudan released British private school teacher Gillian Gibbons from jail.

Gillian Gibbons was arrested for naming a class teddy bear 'Muhammad'. A staff member at the school complained to authorities about the alleged idolatry. Sudanese officials pardoned Ms. Gibbons and she was deported.

My question is where were the staff member's priorities? Naming a teddy bear 'Muhammad' is not sacrilegious but somewhat tacky. The Prophet,when he was sixty-three, had a child bride. Aisha bint Abi Bakr was six years of age when Muhammad married her. He consummated the marriage when the girl was nine.

Hello? In the modern world this is called paedophilia. Muhammad played with the child's dolls and whatnot to gain the victim's trust. Naming a teddy bear, or a child, 'Muhammad' is nauseating in view of the Prophet's sexual assault on a very underage girl. Needless to say, the female in question did not have any children of her own. Rape of a young child can damage the internal reproductive organs.

The Sudanese Muslims who condemned Gillian Gibbons for simply having a class mascot should look to some of the vile origins of their own religion for censure.
