    Judge gives the OK to wife hit



    A DIVORCE court judge ruled a man was RIGHT to beat and abuse his wife — because the Muslim holy book allowed it.

    The terrified partner, a 26-year-old mum of two, filed for a quickie divorce after her husband hit her and even threatened to kill her.

    But the judge in Frankfurt, Germany, rejected her application — quoting a Koran verse which some have controversially interpreted to mean a man can beat his wife if she acts in an “unchasteâ€￾ fashion.

    The woman judge said it was “a religious thingâ€￾ because both the wife and husband were from Morocco — home to many Muslims.

    She added: “The exercise of the right to castigate does not fulfil the hardship criteria defined by German law.â€￾

    But the wife’s lawyer, Barbara Becker-Rojczyk filed a claim saying the judge had a conflict of interest and should have stepped down.

    She said: “The judge seems to be saying that the right to castigate means a husband can beat his wife.

    “Apparently the judge deems it unchaste when my client adapts a Western lifestyle.â€￾ The judge has since been excused from the case.

    I found out that if I start my own religion, and become a priest, I'll be excused from compulsory military service, catch is I need to stay the heck away from the military at all costs until I'm 23, which is the minimum age for being a priest.

    castigate \KAS-tuh-gayt\, transitive verb:
    To punish severely; also, to chastise verbally; to rebuke; to criticize severely.


    Nothing in that definition leads me to believe hitting of any manner is necessary. However, punish is fairly ambiguous. But, the word ambiguous does not excuse a judge from making sensible decisions.
    I just know that this would never happen in America.

    What if your religion requires clergy to be ordained at 18?

    I meant the whole, "Judge finding wife beating acceptable due to religious doctrine," because I know men beat their wives all the time (well, maybe not THAT much...) illegally in the states.

    The beautiful thing about the U.S. is, unlike Germany apparently, we have so many special interests that they all end up fighting each other and we achieve a weird sort of balance. Apparently the Germany government is bending over backwards to appease Islam, but in the U.S. Islam would have to content with the feminists, which would be an awesome fight. I say they mud-wrestle, it'll be burkas vs. skins.

    Tell your mom I won't accept the money she gives me to pose as your "friend" if she doesn't register Xzism.

    Elves get around, and housewives like the black men.

    It's all in the black armor. The pubewig you gave me works wonders, too. It gives me some of your magical charm.

    Not to mention that looking like the supremely flamboyant Freddie Mercury makes a woman feel secure in that you won't take advantage of them...and then you surrepticiously unclasp their bra.
