Funny, isn’t it? The same libs ‘n’ progs who insist the First Amendment does not give you the right to refuse to bake a cake for a same-sex mock wedding, say it does give you the right to rape and beat your wife, or rather your ex-wife, whom you hold against her will.
Yup, it’s a religious freedom issue. A Christian does not have the freedom to refuse to be drafted into participating in a “gay” pseudo-wedding; but a Muslim has the freedom to “live out his faith” by beating and raping his ex-wife. I’m so glad you understand this now.
Anyhow, that’s what a Hudson County Superior Court judge ruled, here in New Jersey, four years ago. Muslim “shari’a law,” as far as this judge was concerned, trumped New Jersey’s laws, and the laws of the United States.
The good news is that this inane and wicked ruling has been overturned, and the offending husband charge with rape, kidnapping, aggravated assault, etc. For more details, see http://townhall.com/columnists/joannemoudy/2014/06/30/embracing-sharia-law-americas-blind-spot-n1857088/page/2 . The bad news is that it took four years, and that a real judge actually thought it a good idea to offer up this young woman as a human sacrifice to the idol of multiculturalism.
Why wasn’t that judge removed on the grounds of moral imbecility?
For those unfamiliar with New Jersey, Hudson County is so Democrat, even the county Republican Organization endorses Democrat candidates for governor. It is the bluest of the blue.
But it’s only a War on Women if a Republican objects to paying for someone else’s birth control pills. I mean, that’s so much worse than rape and beatings and illegal detention–thank heaven we have the Democrat Party to protect women from that!
This poor woman was only a teenager when she was given to an adult male in an arranged marriage, and only met him on their wedding day, in 2008. Soon after, they moved to New Jersey so hubby could make money as an accountant. That’s when he started raping her and pounding her. He divorced her in front of the imam at the mosque–and then took her “home” against her will so that he could rape and pound her some more.
And this sap of a judge overturned the restraining order against this animal and said he could abuse his ex-wife all he pleased.
Ooh! Ooh! Liberals like “gay” imitation marriages, and liberals like Muslim marriages in which the wife functions as a set of bongo drums!
What does that tell you about these people?
