One of the most revered Muslim theologians of all time, Imam al-Ghazali (1058-1111), defined marriage in words that justify such abuse: “Marriage is a form of slavery. The woman is man’s slave, and her duty therefore is absolute obedience to the husband in all that he asks of her person.”
Consider just a few examples of the sexual abuse and degradation suffered by females living under the yoke of Sharia law today:
• The husband is free to beat any of his wives (he is allowed up to four wives) if they are disobedient.
• The husband can divorce his wives at will, but the wives are essentially stuck in loveless marriages at the pleasure of the husband they share. The wives’ shared husband is also favored in cases of custody of the children after the early years of childhood are over.
• Men are granted the privilege to seek sexual gratification with children.
Even disregarding female genital mutilation, sexual slavery and honor killings, which still occur in parts of the Islam world, Islamic law stipulates a gender-segregated, patriarchal society in which women are treated as inferior beings and regularly abused. But the Center for Constitutional Rights ignores a truly “long-standing and pervasive system of sexual violence” and goes after the Catholic Church instead.
This should come as no surprise. The Center regularly advocates for Islamic terrorist detainees. As it boasts on its website:
CCR’s advocacy on behalf of Guantánamo detainees spans district and appellate court litigation, international advocacy, resettlement assistance, and legislative and media advocacy to secure the best possible resolution for our clients.
The Center laments the fact that the United States has refused to allow any of these detainees to be released onto U.S. territory.
The Center also supports the so-called Gaza “Freedom Flotilla,” which even a recent United Nations report said “acted recklessly in attempting to breach the naval blockade” that had been imposed lawfully by Israel.
As its latest attack against the Catholic church illustrates, the Center for Constitutional Rights shares with the Islamist extremists it represents a visceral hatred of the Judeo-Christian tradition and Western democratic values.
