In the Muslim world, it can be extremely difficult for a woman to prove rape under Sharia Law. As Islam spreads across the world, this heinous crime will become more justified. Not only is rape hard to prove this system, but sex with preteens is also common and justified. Such thinking is on our doorstep. Though Sharia is not the Law in the United States yet, appeals to Muslim philosophy are already encroaching.

In Seattle, a 22 year old Muslim college student and volunteer for CAIR, justified intercourse with a twelve year old girl because of how she was dressed. “There are many, many cases all the time of sexual predators taking advantage of underage girls,” wrote Geller. “This one, however, has two elements that show traces of the effects that Islamic supremacism can have on a human mind. Abdelbadie claims that this 12-year-old girl ‘seduced’ him – an idea that might occur easily to someone who, following Muhammad’s example, sees girls as young as nine as sex objects. Also, he claims she was dressed ‘provocatively.’”

The greatest takeaway from this example is that worldview not only affects how we think and act as individuals, but it also impacts Law. As a people or a ruling elite begin to think a certain way, the implementation of laws reflecting those values is sure to follow. Sharia Law is no exception.

As Islam begins to dominate certain cities in America, a greater cry for Sharia will only increase. For this reason, simply attacking the cases that come up will not resolve the problem. We must confront the false worldview of Islam and expose its worldview claims for what they are: baseless and Satanic.

The gospel is the only long-term solution in warring against Islam and all of the baggage that comes with it. When we cow-tow to Islam or any other ungodly system, we not only weaken our own legal system, but we also embolden a structure of beliefs that justifies abuse of women and enslaves its followers.

Take heed ye nations of the earth.

Pslam 2 (ESV)

“Why do the nations rage

and the peoples plot in vain?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves,

and the rulers take counsel together,

against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying,

3 “Let us burst their bonds apart

and cast away their cords from us.”

4 He who sits in the heavens laughs;

the Lord holds them in derision.

5 Then he will speak to them in his wrath,

and terrify them in his fury, saying,

6 “As for me, I have set my King

on Zion, my holy hill.”

7 I will tell of the decree:

The Lord said to me, “You are my Son;

today I have begotten you.

8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,

and the ends of the earth your possession.

9 You shall break them with a rod of iron

and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”

10 Now therefore, O kings, be wise;

be warned, O rulers of the earth.

11 Serve the Lord with fear,

and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son,

lest he be angry, and you perish in the way,

for his wrath is quickly kindled.

Blessed are all who take refuge in him.”
