No, a judge did not rule that a "Muslim Man Can Marry 9-Year-Old Girl In Montana"

If you've seen a headline on social media lately stating that a judge has ruled that a Muslim man can marry a 9-year girl In Montana," don't believe it.

The shrieking headline states: "BREAKING: Muslim Judge Rules Muslim Man Can Marry 9-Year-Old Girl In Montana"

The article is posted on a bogus "news" website called FreedumJunkshun (which we will not link to), and claims that:

The “Honorable” Rahid Musad, a judge in the 19th Circuit Court, heard a horrifying case on Monday. A Muslim man who came to the United States from Iran wanted to get married and felt he was oppressed because he wasn’t allowed. Why wasn’t he allowed? Well, for starters his “fiancee” is nine years old.

If you scroll down on the website, however, you will see this disclaimer:

Here we gather a boatload of bullhonkey, works of pure satirical fiction, to give the fist-shakers of the world a reason to hate. Reality is often in the eye of the beholder. You won’t find any of it here.

The website is littered with other fake "news" and bogus claims designed solely to generate outrage and clicks.
