Should a man be allowed to rape his wife? Do you agree with this judge?

Does Sharia law allow a husband to rape his wife, even in America? A New Jersey trial judge thought so. In a recently overturned case, 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. Fortunately, a New Jersey appellate court reversed the trial judge. But make no mistake about it: this is no isolated incident. We will see more cases here in the United States where others attempt to impose Sharia law, under the guise of First Amendment protections, as a defense against crimes and other civil violations.

  • NO! Your religious rights end when they limit or halt the rights of others...

  • I think that is wrong and disgusting. We are women, and we have a right to say no even if we are married to the man doing it.

  • Well Christain men at one time have thought that one could not rape their wives either. But our laws have changed, this should not continue either...

  • Completely disagree with judge. It does not matter where you come from, our laws must be upheld.
