I personally believe that if a woman chooses to live as a slave within the Muslim religion while at the same time living a free country such as the
U.S. or Canada where they have the right to refuse it then they should be allowed to. Its their choice.
Women in some Middle East countries don't have this choice of course, but I doubt Canada is going to become a Muslim state anytime soon. Again, if a
Muslim man living in a Western country whose constitutions ensure freedom and equality then more power to them, they have options that others don't,
I will be saddened for their wasted lives of servitude to a man but other wise won't care.
As far as this law is concerned, it looks like Ontario has a problem on their hands. They opened the door by letting Orthodox Jews have their
religous courts so it will be hard for them to deny the same to others. And Orthodox Jews are just as fanatical and oppressive to their own followers
as many devout Muslims are...most moderate Jewish people feel the same way.
