    So if I live be a set of "laws" that you find repugnant but on the face of it are still legal under secular law, that it should be allowed?  What if I were a member of a Christian sect that did not allow divorce?

    •  why would I interefere with that (0+ / 0-)

      If you want a divorce, drop out of the cult and get a civil divorce. The same thing would work for this sharia system, any person not happy could drop out and go to civil court. I don't see the problem, there are plenty of Mormon fundies living by all sorts of crazy rules in the West and the only reason for the state to interfere would be child abuse, and the same would apply to a sharia system.

      A pessimist is just a well-informed optimist.
