Brats Ages 5 and 7 Denied Wedding Vows: SF Mayor To Intervene?
SAN FRANCISCO (LIL) -- A Muslim cleric in Pakistan was poised to give Allah`s blessings to Mohammad Waseem, seven years old, and his bride Nishain Karachi, five, who were about to be joined in eternal marital bliss, or until they reached puberty, whichever came first.
However, it all came tumbling down when party pooping police raided the ceremony and arrested the Muslim cleric and the parents of the two children
Television footage showed both children in traditional wedding clothes in the laps of policemen after the raid " the girl with tears running down her cheeks.
There you go! Even as young as five years old, females hate to let go once they get their hooks locked into an available male!
Pakistan law forbids marriage below the age of 18, a law that Mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco described as "discriminatory, damnable, and damaging" to the civil rights of seven year old boys and five year old girls all across the globe.
Mayor Newsom immediately sent a text message to the young victims of Pakistan`s archaic laws and invited the children, their parents, and the 100 wedding guests to visit San Francisco where he, the mayor, would be honored to marry the brats on the steps of San Francisco City Hall.
"Love must never be denied because of intolerant laws and bigoted minds," said Newsom, who added that gay weddings are terrific, but limited by the small population of gay lovers, estimated at 10 percent in the general population, and 70-90 percent in this din of inequity.
Apparently, the volume of gay marriages has petered out since the California Supreme Court legalized same sex weddings last June.
That has cut into Newsom`s bottom line which is why he is willing to marry the young Pakistanis.
Da Mayor needs the $30.00 wedding fee, and said he may have to start accepting straight weddings if things don`t pick up real soon!
