Repeat** After Me

Insert the country of your choice where you read ‘German/Germany’.

Politicians and Muslim leaders denounced a German judge for citing the Koran in her rejection of a Muslim woman’s request for a quick divorce on grounds she was abused by her husband.
JudgeChrista Datz-Winter said in a recommendation earlier this year that both partners came from a “Moroccan cultural environment in which it is not uncommon for a man to exert a right of corporal punishment over his wife,” according to the court. The woman is a German of Moroccan descent married to a Moroccan citizen.
The judge argued that her case was not one of exceptional hardship in which fast-track divorce proceedings would be justified. When the woman protested, Datz-Winter cited a passage from the Koran that reads in part, “men are in charge of women.
…The latest uproar comes amid an ongoing debate in Germany about integrating its more than 3 million Muslims, most of them from Turkey. A decision last year to cancel an opera featuring the severed heads of the Prophet Muhammad and other religious figures out of security concerns caused a furor and was later retracted.
Justice Minister Brigitte Zypries condemned the judge’s decision.
“Every so often, there are individual rulings that seem completely incomprehensible,” she said.
Lawmakers from Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats said traditional Islamic law, or Sharia, had no place in Germany.

**The legal and moral concepts of Sharia have nothing to do with German jurisprudence,” Wolfgang Bosbach, a lawmaker with the Christian Democrats, told N24 television.
One thing must be clear: In Germany, only German law applies. Period.

There…wasn’t that refreshing?

    Don’t laugh we’ve got judges just like that one.
    One *federal* judge in California ruled that it was perfectly acceptable, under the Establishment Clause, for a group of middle schools in California to *force* it’s students to wear muslim clothes, eat halal food and pray to frigging Mecca 5 times a day for a week.
    Meanwhile SCOTUS refused to review the Establishment Clause in NYC where the Christian Cross has been banned outright. Instead the Islamic Crescent and the Jewish Menora are perfectly acceptable for display during Christmas.
    For Christians? What’s their symbol for the birth of Jesus Christ?
    A Christmas tree.
    Evidently the Islamic Crescent and Jewish Menora are all “secular” symbols while the Christian Cross is a religious one.
    What really burns my ass about this is that either Alito or Roberts, or both, declined to review this nonsense by the full Supreme Court so now this bullshit is f**king law in New York.
    Man. Has any other political group in the history of the world worked so hard and accomplished so little as conservatives?
