Is Sharia Law alive and well and even encouraged in New Jersey?
According to the ruling of a judge in New Jersey that a Muslim man was following his religious precepts in raping his wife, NJ Muslim husband rapes wife, judge sees no sexual assault because of husband's religious precepts
, by extension would honor killings of rape victims as part of Sharia Law be considered okay as a religious precept?
There is no place for Sharia Law within the United States unless of course the judges ruling reflects the view that women and wives are chattel of their husbands and families and deserve rape and then murder.
That this case even had to go to an appellate court to be rectified could reflect how far we have gone down the slippery slope of multiculturalism and the belief that all cultures are equal, they are not. A culture hiding behind "religious precepts" to brutalize and even murder women rape victims is certainly a long way from a culture that has built itself upon the notion that all people are equal before the law and that same culture that has been working to embed that belief system throughout its history.
Maybe the judge in the case simply believes that women are the possessions of their husbands and may be raped, beaten, locked up and abused by their husbands at will.
In America, we have laws that protect animals far more than women are protected under this husband's religious precepts. I'm sorry but the "my religion allowed me do it" defense shouldn't work in America.
We ended slavery for all of our people years ago and any "precepts whatever their source" that enshrine the slavery and abuse of women should not be allowed to exist in America.
