Remember the Social Justice Warrior mantra.  One, all cultures are equally valid.  Two, a person should never be judgemental.

Remember a basis tenet of Anglo-Saxon law, the separation of church and state.

So for your reading pleasure, from NBC News:

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — A powerful constitutional body in Pakistan proposed legislation last week that would allow husbands to “lightly beat” their wives who decline sex or refuse to wear what their mates prefer.

The Council of Islamic Ideology says it has to finalize the 160-page draft before it is sent to lawmakers in the Punjab province, the country’s most populated region, for approval.

As well as beatings for wives who decline to have sex with their husbands, the document also advocates men use “limited violence” on spouses who do not bathe after intercourse or during menstruation.

Aside to Ruth Bader Ginsberg, you who are so fond a searching foreign law to implement of court decree, what say you to a little wife beating, lightly of course?
