Why in the hell is there a sanction "for beating" in the first place!!
By contrast, intolerance and self-righteous bigotry help nobody.
Oh, I forgot a couple more excuses, thanks for reminding me:
3 misdirect towards another religion (namely Christianity)
4 label a person as intolerant and a bigot.
Sorry, but Christianity isn't what it once was centuries ago, Islam is still in the middle ages in comparison. Go ahead and call me a bigot but still doesn't change the fact Islam STILL needs to undergo a lot of changes.
Just because some wee old dude possess a Koran, desk and council house does not bestow upon him the ability to judge others im afraid, is that so difficult to understand?

Do you expect Muslims to discard or alter their holy book, which is said to have been dictated to the Prophet by God Himself?

I believe this is where the expression 'rule of thumb' stems from when in times past it was considered acceptable and was indeed lawful for a man to beat his wife with a rod so long as that rod was no thicker than his thumb. Kudos to the poster who advocated sexy funtime bedroom spanking.
Are you sure? Nothing to do with years of university, then law school, then a career in law? This has nothing to do with becoming a REAL U.K judge? At Least that's how it works in the UK.
"or maybe you are just ignorant that
islamic jurisprudence is a subject being
studied long before your country was
even a country!!" If you are going to insinuate that i am
ignorant you really should start
sentences with a capital letter and end
them with a full stop. LoL
"Muslims have courts and a justice
system long before the time when
people at your place were throwing
their sh!t and garbage in the middle of
the street!!" Well I suppose that makes up for all
the suicide bombings, beheadings,
mercy killings, and other assorted
atrocities being perpetrated by the
Islamic extremists these days? Difference is we are trying to learn
from our mistakes(To a fashion), least
some of us are!
I expect all people to use common sense and if their 'religion' says to beat women, then they should know enough that it isn't from God and they should discard it.
This isn't rocket science. Beating women, even 'a little' is BAD. I mean .. comeon ... DUH!
