Of all the sick ways people can hurt children, having a legal, institutionalized way to do it is perhaps the sickest.  It still galls me that in 2010 there can still be nations on this planet that still subscribe to modes of behavior that should have been left far behind in the middle ages.  It is for things like this that this nation should block all contact with others, yet we don’t.  In fact we still consider Yemen an “ally.” Even though they not only support and condone pedophile rape, they are also a known sponsor of terrorism.
