Muslim cleric may face charges for marrying 12-year-old

Because Islamic whackiness doesn't take a holiday just because we've got an election coming up.
A wealthy Indonesian Muslim cleric faces accusations of having illegal sex with a minor after marrying a 12-year-old girl selected for him through a contest.

Pujiono Cahyo Widianto, a 43-year-old owner of an Islamic boarding school, wed and likely slept with Lutfiana Ulfa in August after she won a contest to become Pujiono’s second wife judged by his first wife, 26, and followers, the Jakarta Post reported.

Additionally, the commission intends to request an edict forbidding marriages to minors as Pujiono has declared plans to also marry a 7-year-old girl and 9-year-old girl, the Post reported.

Many say it is the highest calling for a Muslim man to emulate the life of Mohammad.

Watch for this guy to declare himself an illiterate just before he takes on the role of warlord. Added to his pedophilia, he'll have hit the Mohammad trifecta.
