Is it really a "weirdo" thing, though, when the tenets of the religion say that pedophilia is okay? It's like Christians saying that people who murder abortion doctors are not true Christians when there are in fact several Biblical accounts of defenders of the faith (granted, not exactly the Christian faith, but you don't see Jews bombing abortion clinics, and it's all in the same freaking book) murdering non-believers for "crimes" the modern liberal thinker would view as far less destructive than abortion (chiefly, worshipping other deities).
One has to remember that the holy books of booth religions were written in another time, where marriage at a very young age was common, although often more as a political gesture than what we today considers reasons to marry. They reflect that set of values, which we have since outgrown.
