Go Ahead, Beat Your Wife... Just Don't Leave a Mark

By Bobby Eberle

Bobby_Loft

Yes, yes, yes... religions are different. Cultures are different. Customs and traditions are different throughout the world. We all know this. Despite the differences in culture and religion across the planet, it seems sensible to expect a certain level of respect for all human beings and their rights. Unfortunately, that is not the case. The United States is often criticized in the media and abroad for not doing more to protect human rights, there are countries in far worse shape, and the media are turning a blind eye.

Groups like the United Nations love to dump on the U.S. for all the perceived abuses and injustices that occur, yet they ignore abuses that occur every single day in the name of religion. As noted in a story on FoxNews.com, the highest court in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) ruled that a husband can beat his wife and young children "as long as the beating leaves no physical marks." How's that for civility?

The decision by the Federal Supreme Court shows the strong influence of Islamic law (Sharia) in the Emirates despite its international appeal in which foreign residents greatly outnumber the local population.

The court made the ruling earlier this month in the case of a man who left cuts and bruises on his wife and adult daughter after a beating.

In a follow-up story running on The Guardian, the reporter notes:

The court upheld the right of the unnamed man from Sharjah - one of the seven emirates - to beat his wife and children to "discipline" them after he had exhausted two other options: admonition and then abstaining from sleeping with his wife. Scholars differ on what constitutes "beating" but agree it must not be severe.

In the case of the wife, it was the degree of severity that put the man in breach of the law. But his daughter was 23, and therefore too old to be disciplined by her father, the court said. He claimed he did not mean to harm either of them.

I guess it will be up to the daughter's new husband to take over the beating duties.

CBSNews.com posted a story last week under the headline Fears of Sharia Law in America Grow Among Conservatives. It's an interesting headline, but I fail to see the point of it. Are they trying to show that Sharia law is "not so bad"? Are they trying to say that conservatives are just a bunch of kooks? Probably a little bit of both. However, my point is that if there is a "code of conduct" that allows wife beating just as long as there are no physical marks present, then that is NOT a real code of conduct.

The story goes on to note the following:

The notion that Sharia law is coming to America has been percolating in the conservative media for a while. Fox News' Sean Hannity suggested the arrest of the Christian missionaries in Dearborn reflected the possibility that "Sharia law is taking over in Dearborn," as did Fox News' Brian Kilmeade, who interviewed one of the men who was arrested.

At the Values Voters summit in September, Newt Gingrich said - to a standing ovation - that "[w]e should have a federal law that says Sharia law cannot be recognized by any court in the United States." He has also warned that jihadists are trying "to replace Western civilization with a radical imposition of Sharia."

The Heritage Foundation recently asked the question, "Does Sharia law allow a husband to rape his wife, even in America?" It turns out, a New Jersey judge thought the answer was "yes." In a case that was eventually overturned, "a 'trial judge found as a fact that defendant committed conduct that constituted a sexual assault' but did not hold the defendant liable because the defendant believed he was exercising his rights over the victim."

In S.D. v. M.J.R., the plaintiff, a Moroccan Muslim woman, lived with her Moroccan Muslim husband in New Jersey. She was repeatedly beaten and raped by her husband over the course of several weeks. While the plaintiff was being treated for her injuries at a hospital, a police detective interviewed her and took photographs of her injuries. Those photographs depicted injuries to plaintiff's breasts, thighs and arm, bruised lips, eyes and right check. Further investigation established there were blood stains on the pillow and sheets of plaintiff's bed.

The wife sought a permanent restraining order, and a New Jersey trial judge held a hearing in order to decide whether to issue the order. Evidence at trial established, among other things, that the husband told his wife, "You must do whatever I tell you to do. I want to hurt your flesh" and "this is according to our religion. You are my wife, I c[an] do anything to you." The police detective testified about her findings, and some of the photographs were entered into evidence.

The defendant's Imam testified that a wife must comply with her husband's sexual demands and he refused to answer whether, under Islamic law, a husband must stop his sexual advances on his wife if she says "no."

Now get this... the judge determined that the criminal acts "were proved." However, the restraining order was denied. Why? Read on...

This judge held that the defendant could not be held responsible for the violent sexual assaults of his wife because he did not have the specific intent to sexually assault his wife, and because his actions were "consistent with his [religious] practices." In other words, the judge refused to issue the permanent restraining order because under Sharia law, this Muslim husband had a "right" to rape his wife.

The concerns of Sharia law being used as a basis for determining the outcome of court cases in the U.S. was strong enough for the Oklahoma legislature to take action. ABCNews.com reports reports that Oklahoma "is poised to become the first state in the nation to ban state judges from relying on Islamic law known as Sharia when deciding cases."

Sharia has gained a toehold in some western countries, notably Great Britain, where five sharia courts have been established to settle certain disputes among Muslims, with the government's blessing. The proposed Oklahoma amendment is aimed, in part, at "cases of first impression," legal disputes in which there is no law or precedent to resolve the matter at hand. In such cases, judges might look to laws or rulings in other jurisdictions for guidance. The proposed amendment would block judges in Oklahoma courts from drawing on sharia, or the laws of other nations, in such decisions.

One can tell by the headline that ABC News was trying to send a message that Oklahoma (and not Sharia law) was backward. If this law eliminates the possibility that a husband beating his wife could become an accepted practice in this country, then I'm all for it. There is common sense, and there is common decency. Both are in short supply in this world.

---------------

Editor's Note: Please read the poll question carefully. The question is asking if it is possible for Sharia Law to come to the US.

Do you feel that Sharia law could come to America?customer surveys

    Ephesians 5:25 “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; ”
    So many have forgotten our Christian roots. This country was established on Biblical principles. If people want to be a Muslim in America, it is their right, but they have no right to force the citizens of this country and its courts to honor their religious beliefs when those beliefs are in direct contrast to the Bible and the laws of this land. Tolerance is a word that has ruined our society. It is a word that politicians, judges, and government officials like to throw out when they don’t have the backbone to take a stand. If I were in a Muslim country and tried to tell someone about Jesus they would arrest and/or execute me. Even though my beliefs tell me that I should share Jesus wherever I go. Muslims are not “tolerant” of our beliefs, but for some reason we have to be tolerant of theirs IN OUR OWN COUNTRY! You want to be a Muslim, a Hindu, a Buddhist, an atheist? Fine, that’s your choice, but you will NOT receive special rights or considerations because of it while you’re living here. Despite what “The Change” says in his speeches on foreign soil, this is STILL a Christian nation. Christians, it’s time to stand up or get stood on.

    Amen to Fed Up Conservative. Have the courts in this country gone mad?? These people are foreigners and need to abide by our laws. If they want to beat up the female members of their families and their laws allow it, then let them move back to where……they came from. We don’t need any more savages here.
    It is clearly a fact that those “people” (and I use the word loosely) are hell bent on destroying Western civilization (as evidenced by the fact they they’ve infiltrated many civilized nations) so that the law of their world becomes that of the entire world.
    God help us all! (Especially since our government is so worried about what the world thinks and cares nothing for the American peole, the people they are supposedly sworn to serve and protect.)

    Last time I looked, we were still a Constitutional Republic and all legitimate laws were based in the Constitution of the United States. The judge in question took an oath to uphold the laws of the United States of America. He has no business basing a decision on Sharia law. He needs to be fired.

    The day the Muslim’s revise their laws with respect to their women and they make it a Death penalty rather than a religious order for killing Christians for Distributing BIBLES in the Mid East countries will be the day I “Might” begin to Respect these disgusting stone aged groups that obviously are brainwashed into ignorance .
    IMO–It’s far past the time of Tolerance with these maniacs and way past time to pull all Military personnel out of these back stabbing nations and let them kill each other into extinction.
    America has given & lost more than the entire Mideast & their Oil is worth.
    Not to mention the Fact that they alone are responsible for their beliefs and the results thereof.
    Btw: I & many are fully aware that there are many Americans in Power that are as responsible for these wars that have NO real End .
    The Nov elections should be the first step in Ridding America of these power mongrels .
    Just a dream ,I know, “WE the People” allowed these Pigs of Global Governance to take us to the Pits of hell . Sad that “We The People” now have to pay the piper from hell for our apathy. For Eternity.

    OMG….do you believe that disgusting count on the poll? What the hell are people thinking (or not)?
    No country can have two sets of laws and frankly if the Muslims don’t like our laws, they have the absolute liberty to chose some other country to live in! Don’t assume that all these people are foreigners….they are not. However, neither is the ideology they ascribe to a religion. It is a way of life, a directive of governments in other lands and will become so here if we sit idly by and allow it. Because some middle-eastern Arab pedophile decided to control the people of his region by cherry picking some passages from the Hebrew old testament and making up a bunch of trash to add to it and peddle to ignorant peasants as religion does not make it a religion any more than L Ron Hubbard’s (the science fiction writer) ravings make “Scientology” a religion. We have far too many cults in this country which have somehow become respectable. The only one in recent memory which did not was the “Moonies”. Have people here not seen what has happened to England and France. Look at the pictures of these hooded people with their ugly murderous signs marching in the streets in those countries. They are in the foreign press and all over the Internet. The threat is clear and it is possible to nip it in the bud here!
    It is bad enough that we have Supreme Court Justices who think it is fine to consider international law when making their decisions The whole basis of law in this country is vested in the Constitution (or was intended by the founders to be so), now we have lower court judges using religious law to make their rulings? This is total insanity!

    Conservatives afraid of Sharia Law? Being afraid of and disliking are two separate categories. When I read the headline my first thoughts were that liberals must then go in for sexual slavery, pedophilia, female circumscision, female genital mutilation, anything other than the respect a human being deserves.

    Clarification:
    I am not a bleeding heart Liberal Progressive thinking that all wars are useless.
    I am an American that believes when any Nation chooses to attack Americans anywhere ,anytime, there should be No Hesitation in annihilating the offending nation with the full force of America’s might & Political Correctness should Never be the Deciding factor, mush less a thought, in dealing with the enemies of America.
    A couple of Nukes within a day or 2 of the “First” attack should be the first and final action in garnering the respect from all opposing nations.Period , thus Ending many wars before they begin.
    In my world , it’s called Setting Boundaries before the boundaries are needed.
    Last but not the least by any standards.
    I see where nearly half of the people responding to the Sharia Law poll voted in favor of Sharia Law being accepted in America.
    Surely this is a Mistake. What in God’s Great Name are these folks thinking ? The people in favor must be the “Not Thinking Clearly” Americans that Obama so respectfully is referring to.
    If the Pro-Islam / Sharia law, folks here think seeing Women & Muslim Children stoned in the streets of America is OK & Beheadings of their American Infidel Brethren is something they support , Well Guess What— The next War will be right here in your American Cities and your living rooms.. AND BY The “Grace of GOD”– You Sharia Law folks will be Losing the War and be sent to live in the Islamic nation of your choice..

    Such behavior is barbaric and does not belong in our society.
    I spend a great deal of time around young people and will occasionally see “play-hitting”, well, that is what the kids call it. I tell them, “Real men don’t hit women.” I tell you, that one statement has drawn some really hostile looks from some guys. Notice, I didn’t call them “men.” It bothers me that girls tolerate it at all when they shouldn’t.
    Sharia Law has no place in our country. Anyone who wants to bring it in needs to be deported back to some middle eastern wasteland and that includes fool judges and the people who appointed or elected them.
    Ladies, you should not tolerate it. Gentlemen, we should not allow it when we see it.

    There was something so repugnant about that (so called) judge’s ruling that I completely missed a point that might just make people stop and think before voting yes in that horrible poll.
    If it is condoned by any judge that a Muslim may beat his wife and rape her at will with the sanction of the court, how long will it be before we have some judge who refuses to hear the case of some ugly Muslim who uses his religion as an excuse in the “honor MURDER” of his female relative? That’s part of Sharia law as well as the lovely practice of burying a female up to her neck and allowing a mob of rabble to “stone” her to death. Are you “YES” voters nuts?

    Sharia could NEVER have any validity in the US under Republican or Conservative leadership. Look to the Liberals and the Democrats who believe in “multi-culturalism” to not only embrace it, but to actually promote it.
    Frankly, I think we SHOULD have Sharia Law, but it would ONLY be applicable to the Liberals and Democrats- or whatever they choose for their “name de jour”. You could bet the farm that they would come screaming for the Constitution to protect them despite doing their best for almost a century to gut it.

    The poll does NOT ask if you would LIKE Sharai law, it asks, do you FEEL it will come here. I can see why a number of people might think it’s possible, given what is happening in the UK, Europe, and now here. Of course you have to add to the fact that a lot of us are concerned that there is so much “PC”, that we might worry it is possible, based on that alone. I would not want Sharai law period…but…I can see it making it’s way here because of all the progessive nonsense going on and all that touchy feely stuff we see all the time.
    Like the German chancellor Angela Merkel said, Multiculturalism has “utterly failed.” It doesn’t take brain surgeons to know this. That is why there are COUNTRIES and almost all unlike the others. It’s what makes Germans, Germans,..he French,Frence and on and on. It’s why America is what it is..the best(my opinon). But now, here in America, there is much more than Americans. Thats the problem and it needs to change back to what it was intended. Learn to be an American or go back from where you came. Do that and I’m okay with whoever you are or wherever you came from.
    I will add this: In years past, to become a US citizen, you were to renounce your loyalty from the place you came from and pledge your allegiance to the United States of America. I don’t see that happening.

    To Firemall: I think maybe you misunderstood the poll. It says “Do you think Sharia law COULD come to America”, not SHOULD and I think that is why people voted yes. I did, thinking it COULD come if we are not careful, NOT that I think it SHOULD. Heaven forbid. I, like many others, think we have gone too far with political correctness. These people should obey AMERICAN laws if they chose to live here. There should not be one set of laws for them and one for everyone else. I just read an article yesterday by Andrea Merkel, the leader of Germany, stating that their “multi-cultural society” was not working. The same goes here. If you come here, become an AMERICAN. Yes you have a cultural heritage, but assimilate as much as possible. Why else would you come here. Unless it’s to destroy this great country.

    In this poll, “COULD” is the operative word. “Could” means that it is possible. I believe it IS possible – IF Americans do not wake up and oppose this Political Correctness nonsense. Therefore, I voted YES in the poll because IT IS POSSIBLE for Sharia Law to come to America if our government does not develop the moral courage to oppose it. If the poll asked “Should Sharia Law come to America?”, you would find that the poll would be overwhelmingly NO, and I would have voted NO as well. Let this poll be a warning to the American People to remain vigilant so that it NEVER HAPPENS!

    The poll question is ambiguous: Could Sharia law come to U.S.? It doesn’t ask whether it is a good thing or whether you support it. It asks about a “possibility” of becoming a law in the country. So when I answered “Yes” – I meant it is possible, it could happen. I did NOT mean that I welcome such laws in any way.
    I think the high % of Yes votes in the poll are due to the question put wrong, not because people support it. I have a high respect for GOPUSA readers!

    I voted “no” in the poll, but I misread it and thought it said “should” instead of “could”. Yes, I believe it absolutely COULD come to America. That is, if we don’t stand up to make our voices heard. Stop being afraid of someone calling you intolerant and do the right thing….do the Godly thing. When we see something that is immoral and serves to eat away at our Christian rights, we need to say something. Quit hoping that someone else will take the initiative.
    Do you know how homosexuals acquired all the rights they have now? It was because the generation before us sat back and said “That could never happen here.” Look where that got us: gay marriage, gay rights, gay parades, gays adopting children, gays teaching in Christian schools, transsexuals in the women’s restroom, homosexual agenda being taught to preschoolers,and gays trying to sue a bakery in Indianapolis for not baking cookies for their rally. Where does it stop?!?!?
    Vote the liberals and RINOs out this November. I live and Florida and voted for Crist who was apparently the lesser of two evils, but now we see how he duped us all. Hopefully he’ll get destroyed by Rubio.
    Do NOT sit home this year and think your vote won’t make a difference. We cannot afford to be the silent majority any longer. For the sake of my 1 and 6 yr old boys as well as your own children and grandchildren, let’s turn this country back to God.

    I stand by my comments. Those voting Yes mean that they think it is possible. IT IS NOT! This country will never allow it, no matter how hard the liberals and Muslims push for it. NEVER Happen. There are too many sane people still living here and they, we, will not allow our country to submit to Shari’a law. Liberals will NEVER be in control of all the power in Washington ever again, and conservatives number too many to let Shari’a law come here.

    A band of Muslims calmly commit their unspeakable act on 9/11 in the name of Allah only nine years ago, and now we are DEBATING Shariah law in the United States, with some deranged jurists nodding in the affirmative! What has happened to our country?!
    Mohammed, in the 7th century, wrote the Quran in his lifetime, with Shariah law as one of its tenets. He also took as his “wife” a girl whose age was still in single digits.
    Well, if Shariah law sprang from Mohammed’s breast, and if it was “acceptable” for his “wife” to be not far from babyhood, then what’s next — for those same jurists to ponder on whether girl children are okay to wed in the good old USA?
    Again, what has happened to us, our Constitution, our values that we used to hold so dear?

    Sorry folks, but Sharia law is here already and has been for some time! Remember the father that killed his two daughters for an ‘honor’ killing? How much of the beating etc… do we not see? The women who allow this are total idiots. Maybe they feel they deserve to be beaten but do they really believe their daughters deserve rape, beatings and murder? These Muslims are stone cold fanatics and trust me they believe they will take over America and enforce Sharia law. From within.

    In the world I presently reside in ,Abusing a woman Or child It Still a No-NO & I will be the First in line to do some *** beating before the police are even called.
    Some here don’t know that in the old Wild West days , a man that simply disrespected a Saloon woman would suffer the beating of their life and the perp would likely be shot if the disrespect involved physical violence.
    Seems like the complete opposite of Sharia law.
    IMO This Wild West rule regarding Respect of all Women should be the law of the land today.

    How can you possibly vet a candidate if you don’t read any more carefully than that?
    This is a throwaway Internet poll but it reveals something very scary about the American voter.
    When people are so easily fooled by a common word it’s no wonder that so many voted for Obama.

    As I said in my first post: “COULD” is the operative word in this poll. “Could” means that it is possible. That is why I voted YES. There have already been a couple of incidents here in America where Shari’a Law HAS been used! The ruling by that idiot in New Jersey who calls himself a judge is one of them. The arrest of those four Christians at the Arab Festival in Dearborn, Michigan is another. I reside in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, only 7 miles from where those abominable arrests took place. I assure you that this poll is NO “crock of ****” as you so crudely word it, and no, I am not a Muslim, and NEVER will be. This is serious stuff! Therefore, it is up to us to immediately and forcefully push back against this sewage! Please remember to vote against the America-haters in your district on November 2. It may be our last chance to take America back!

    Tolerance and Diversity, is destroying our Country.
    Try to find religious tolerance, for Christianity, in some other countries.
    Before going forward, let me say that people DO NOT UNITE because of their “differences!” It is amazing that educated Americans have bought into this outrageously corrupt theory. It is the worst propaganda being spread by the radical Left!
    Why are we allowing foreigners into our country, from the very countries that are killing Americans, on a daily basis? Why are we bowing to the demands of those, bent on our destruction?
    Their Laws, are SAVAGE LAWS! They believe in commiting atrocities in the name of their religion! Their’s is a Seventh Century Mindset.
    If you think others wish us well, or respect this Country….think again! Parts of our Country have been overrun by sheer numbers of these foreigners. Why is this allowed? What are we thinking!
    Forcing their way of life on us, is but one of many insidious ways to destroy America, and the American way of life. So far, we are as stupid as they perceive us to be. They fiercely defend their own way of life, their religion, and their own laws. Why don’t we??
    It is sad that they are supported, by some in our Justicial Systems. Any judge that does not uphold the Laws of THIS Land, should be prosecuted, disbarred and their Law License revoked. They should experience the unemployment line, and maybe a little jail time…
    Surely, they would want to be judged by “American Laws,” rather than the foreign laws, they seem to favor… Imagine what sentence one would get for Insurrection, in a Seventh Century Court…

    I think this is just another attempt to ease this way of thinking into our society so we won’t be shocked when it actually occurs. Then, the people will accept it more readily, as if we could do nothing to stop it. Just like were supposed to bend over backwards for homosexuality. If not, were considered “uncharitable.”
    And so they advance…

    Some claim Islam is a peaceful religion that has been “hijacked” by terrorists. This court decision in the UAE should blow this fantasy right to where it belongs. To Hell!
    This is clearly the implementation of the koran by the mainstream people in authority in an Islamic country. And this is exacly what makes Islam, Islam in all Islamic countries. They all rigidly and to the letter of the law, the koran/shiara, implement and enforce this system of law. No hijacking involved!
    I suspect they want to start another civil war here in America and then have the state of MI secede from the union of states because they have/want shiara law and the rest of the nation doesn’t. Doesn’t this sound like the first civil war because the south wanted and had slavery?
    In GB their acceptance of Muslim courts is the first, maybe the last, step to fulfill what B Franklin said. We all hang together or we hang separately. I wonder how GB will hang?
    Plus they really don’t like us, the west, invading the ME and trying to establish a govt similar to ours, Europe and Japan. The citizens in the rest of Islam might decide they no longer want to be oppressed by shiara law/Islam! How many women libbers want to be subject to shiara law? They have no idea of what oppression really is!
    We are in a fight, Armaggedon in my opinion, with only one form of govt left standing at the end! We, our “leaders”, need to recognize just how much of a threat Islam is to US and that jihad is not part of a “peaceful” anything, but is another item implemented by their govts. And funded by these same govts who use secret budgets, thus can fund whatever activities they wish, even including massive financial involvement in our elections via their political outposts, aka mosques.
    Our politicans are so tuned into party directives, lobbyists, and other financial sources they don’t bother to ever hear the “cry of the voters”!

    Texasnell: I did read the poll wrong. So my anger is self imposed but none the less ,real & justified regarding what is now only ,one more diversion ,from the reality of America Falling from within.
    The fastest way of knocking a house down is from Breaking the foundation up, not working from the roof down.
    The root definition/ results of “Obama’s Hope & Change”.
    Now- having re-read the poll question ,I will now get after the real problem here.
    What is so hard about seeing where “We” “The True Americans” are headed if “WE” don’t stop the insane Political Correctness of people like the POTUS / executive controlled Judicial branch ,Pelosi , Whoopie Golddigger,Diane Sawyer & all the Politically Correct “lacking in mind” Holocaust Denying Idiots that are the Minority but garnering False Prophet Power like they are the Final word via the True American’s In-Actions.

    Unfortunately, it seems that Patriots, Constitutionalists, and Conservatives have not yet heeded the information supplied by men’s issues advocates:
    which is that as many wives beat their husbands as there are husbands that beat their wives. This phenomenon transcends race, national, and religious boundaries. Check out Professor Martin Fiebert’s website for a compendium of studies which show the equality of violence between the sexes:

    The Okies from Muskogee and other places have it right. Shirara law needs to be against our law and is certainly is an abomination against Christian morality.
    Will O and his AG file suit against the State of Oklahoma because they are “intolerant”? Or maybe because it “blasphemed” against diversity,or whatever, a major tenet of liberaldom and the party of political hacks, the party of never say or have an opinion other than what the party dictates, the Democratic Party!
    I think the liberals are self destructing right before our eyes and ears and right before an election that might be their last election.
    This is surely O and his czars last election. In order for the democartic party to survive, they will need to purge O and impeach him, or convince him to resign and go back to the ME in exile for his own safety!

    First, the poll. Yes, if we are not vigilant Sharia law could come to the USA. We must be vigilant in upholding our Constitutional rights.
    Second, that trial judge needs to be removed from the bench. He legislated from the bench and that is inexcusable.
    It is against our laws to assault and rape another person no matter what religion you are. It is a crime, period.

    Many don’t remember what happened after WWII in France. Women that had fraternized with the Nazis had their heads shaved and were run out of town. I have often wondered what happened to them since for a spell they were easily identifiable. In Islam women that fraternize with whom ever get buried up to their waist or neck and get stoned to death!

    Geeez–LucyLu:
    I was never for one second fooled by Obama or any of his scum supporters / gangies . Period.
    As far as mis-reading the poll language, It’s easy to correct, Just add the yes & no columns together and the useless fight is over, both are the correct answer as far as real threats to Freedom. OK??
    On the Obama comment:
    Anyone with their head in it’s original location did not/ should not, have listened to “O”‘s words.
    His body language told me all I “never” wanted to know about what “he” was about & what it would mean for the America I remember in my youth..
    When one is thinking from within with a clear & open heart , one cannot be fooled by the other folk’s words especially ,when the words do not coincide with their actions.
    Thus “we” had the Duped Obama voters that furthered the New World order of America’s Change.

    Gosh… the National Organization for Women (NOW) is awfully quiet on this subject of Sharia law! Haven’t heard a peep from them.
    And isn’t it interesting that a judge in America would support this blatant violation against a woman’s civil rights, which truly is a hate crime, just because her husband is obeying the tenants of his religion. And yet, a Christian doesn’t even have the right to say that homosexuality is wrong and an abomination to God, which is what the Bible teaches, without the fear of being prosecuted for hate speech. Why the double standard?

    It’s even gotten worse than you have mentioned. Did you know that the “Obamacare” debacle does not include Muslims to be forced to buy insurance?Did you know that the Qur’an is the word of Allah, and that Muslims are required to overwhelm forces that are weaker than they, and to scream bloody murder if the forces are stronger? That children of nine MONTHS of age can be married to a Muslim man; although [he] is encouraged to wait until the girl is nine years of age; but who’s watching? If America does not enforce American laws and regulations on Islamic “Complete Systems of LIfe,” [Islam is not just a religion] we will end up just like Europe.

    The question can be read 2 ways. With the current administration and the way the courts are acting, it could come to America. If the question is asking permission for Shariah law to come to America – that is different. It is trying to “creep” into our society and our courts are confused enough about what is politically “right” to let it “in”. Our language is American English. If these people want to live here, then they should learn to speak it. If they want to live here, they also need to learn to assimilate and abide by our laws. To allow another culture to come into our home and overrun us is wrong and unthinkable. If people want to live under Shariah, then let them go back to where they came from and live under Shariah – its not happening here! You’ve heard the expression, “Not on my watch”. Well, if the rest of my countrymen/women are as incensed at the very idea of Shariah in the United States as I am, then, it shouldn’t happen. We just need to be watchful and active in opposing it.
