Afghan cleric defends new law PERMITTING MARITAL RAPE

As always, Muslims defer to the Qur’an which sanctions marital rape and wife-beating. So, is THIS what ISLAMObama was referring to when he said, “It is very important for us to be sensitive to local cultures?”

Mohammad Asif Mohseni, a top Afghan Shia cleric, backer of an Afghan law that legalizes marital rape rejected an international outcry as foreign meddling on Saturday and insisted the law offers women many protections. Some supporters claimed that in fact raping one’s wife helps in binding the family unit.
