This is happening in America, folks!!
A landlord who got into a dispute with a Muslim tenant is being ordered by a state judge to “study Islam” as part of her probation.
The landlord got into hot water after the dispute turned physical, and she pushed the Muslim tenant down a short flight of stairs.
Rather than deal with the case as any other occurrence of assault and battery, the judge decided to let Islam play its role.
“You have to respect the rights of people of the Muslim faith,” the judge told the defendant. “That’s the message I’m sending out to you. That is the message that I’m sending out to the community.”
Now, call me crazy, but this is a bizarre sentence.
First of all, the judge should have taken into account that the landlord was 71-years-old. She wasn’t actually going to hurt anyone.
Second, and more importantly, it is NOT the place of state judges to force citizens to study a religion with which they disagree.
This is a slippery slope that ends with America bowing to Sharia Law.
