Anyone who defends Sharia law is a misogynist. Period. Tolerating Sharia is tantamount to tolerating the Ku Klux Klan. When KKK members start spewing their distorted views on equality, nearly everyone criticizes them. Yet criticizing Sharia for its inequality is considered politically incorrect.
The beliefs of those who practice Sharia are as evil and as wicked as the views put forth by your run-of-the-mill KKK member. For example, a woman’s testimony is weighed as half that of a man in a court of law. She is counted as half in matters of inheritance when compared to a man. A woman’s position is less advantageous than a man’s with regard to marriage and divorce. Does that remind you of anything? Remember when the U.S. Constitution counted slaves as 3/5 of a person?
Under Sharia, a man has the moral and religious right and duty to beat his wife for disobedience or for perceived misconduct, yet she cannot beat her husband for the same reasons. Unlike a man under Shaira, a woman does not have the right to choose her husband, where she wants to live, to drive, vote and travel freely or have freedom to do something so basic like choose her own clothing.
