When religious communities have their own courts separate from the general society's law, said religious courts are far more concerned with preserving the status quo within their ranks than with any real notion of justice.

Secular equivalent: Penn State campus police. Enough said.

...

I lied. I've got one more thing to say: I try not to be too judgmental of different cultures. I'm not there, so I know I don't get it. But I say to communities who blame the victims of sexual abuse, "go f*** yourselves!" There is no excuse for that. None. Never.

I have no sensitivity, empathy, understanding, nor tolerance of anybody whose idea of "morality" consists of blaming the victim.

There is no reason for ANY religion to have a court system outside the country's legal system and we should not recognize any of them.

Amen. This is vile, pure and simple.
What I would say to these "people" (and I'm using the term very loosely) who have attacked the victim would almost certainly get me banned if posted here.

re: #2 JEA62

The ultra-orthodox are (unsurprisingly) a rather conservative bunch. This is a court system whose rules were codified nearly 2000 years ago and whose practice dates back even farther. You expect them to eagerly adopt something as newfangled as English common law? :P
