Activist judges ...

We have all heard reports of activist judges, those who legislate from the bench. Those reports concern many of us since these judges are stepping beyond their intended role.

However, an action that occurred this past week is far more alarming!

A judge in Pennsylvania dismissed a case involving a Muslim who attacked an atheist. What is alarming is the reprimand the judge gives to the plaintiff (excerpted from the first article):

Having had the benefit of having spent over 2 and a half years in predominantly Muslim countries I think I know a little bit about the faith of Islam. In fact I have a copy of the Koran here and I challenge you sir to show me where it says in the Koran that Mohammad arose and walked among the dead. I think you misinterpreted things. Before you start mocking someone else’s religion you may want to find out a little bit more about it. It makes you look like a doofus… In many Arabic speaking countries something like this is definitely against the law there. In their society in fact it can be punishable by death and it frequently is in their society.

I have included links to various articles about the story below. Please share this with others.

NOTE: Some of these stories refer to Judge Martin as a Muslim convert. This has been denied by a member of the Judge's staff. You can read more about that here.
