A stupid New Jersey judge has attempted to use Sharia law to uphold a Muslim husbands right to rape a teenage girl forced to wed him in an [arranged marriage.
Taking the view that married women are the chattel property of their husbands, the judge (whose name has not been published by the old media) denied the validity of New Jerseys charges because the rapes were committed within the period in which the couple was married.
Allowing the mans Islamic [beliefs to exonerate him, the judge remarked, "This court does not feel that, under the circumstances, that this defendant had a criminal desire to or intent to sexually assault or to sexually contact the plaintiff when he did. The court believes that he was operating under his belief that it is, as the husband, his desire to have sex when and whether he wanted to, was something that was consistent with his practices and it was something that was not prohibited."
Recognizing marital rape
Before 1976 there was no recognition of marital rape in any state in America. Today every state has such a law and many, New Jersey among them, make no distinction between spousal rape and stranger rape.
This ruling was a direct assault on Americas system of law, a necessary first step to the destruction of our nation.
Fortunately this advance of the creeping influence of Islamic Sharia law was turned back. A New Jersey Appellate Court slapped down this fools ruling and reversed the decision.
While the marriage in question may have stretched the margins of normal in our understanding of the word, what the judge did in accepting a cultural defense was extremely dangerous.
under Muslim law his 17 year old bride had to yield, but not under New Jersey law...

Not ‘stupid’. This is planned.
Where is Pres_ _ent Obama’s birth certificate, anyway?
No outside source to confirm this claim. The links at the web page are dead - as far as I can tell.
Isn’t that illegal? That is not our law and I thought any judge has to follow our laws....silly me
Saw that too. Dead links. I tried to get back to the original source to find out how a dismissed case or a not guilty finding found its way to the appeals level.
The links have an additional http// at the front of the link - remove the additional one and it worked for me...
Thank you so much! I am not a computer guy. After jumping from blog to blog I made it to the actual appelate court order.
This was a civil court order and appeal for a final restraining order, not the criminal case. As stated in the reversal:
“As a final matter, the judge recognized the pendency of a criminal action against defendant, and indicated its existence constituted an additional basis for the judge’s ruling denying afinal restraining order, since he assumed that a no-contact order had been entered as a condition of bail.”
That answered my original question.
coachisright.com linking problem is solved, thanks for your patience.
