Afghan Law allows rape in marriage

In the King James Bible Ephesians 5:22-6:9 says, “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands

Is there a separation of church and state in America for good reason or should people follow “Gods Law?”

    it is my hope that those seeing this do not automatically, and out of ignorance, assume that this is permitted in Islam; because the country is Islamic. I assure you it is not., no more than Bush and the war on terror reflects Christianity. Far to often it is convenient for people to not do their homework and have skewed understanding of what true Islam is. These are those who have strayed far from the path and have combined ideology with politics. This is mans perversion & invention, not the way of the Prophet( SAW) or Islam. One must separate religion from societal cultural norms.

    How beautiful. Nor do I believe that Islam or Christianity decree marital rape.

    This is horrible if rape by your own husband is allowed anywhere in the world…
    But can we finish this scripture please (I get so tired of folks taking scriptures from the Bible totally out of context)…

    Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.

    And here is the rest…or PART II

    Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

    —Ephesians 5:22-33

    Some more..

    Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct.

    1 Peter 3:7
    Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.

    —1 Peter 2:25-3:2, 3:7

    While i am of course not agreeing with this law, we should expect to see more negative reports on behavior in afganistan as the US begins to racket up it barbaric military presence in the country. Rape is terrible and so is murder in the guise of war. Don't succumb to the negative proproganda that's on the way concerning this country. Remember it was reported that 17 of the highjackers were from Saudi Arabia, training in Afganistan. So in response we should wage a war on the entire country for all of these years.
