Germany bravely declares: No more polygamy, forced child brides, for Islamic refugees

Boldly declaring child-rape unacceptable. 

In the last week or so, I've spent a lot of time carping about the Obama administration’s desperate desire to coddle the worst aspects and practitioners of Islam. If you're sick of my complaints (or of Obama's equivocations) well, tough.  That's probably not going to change.  However, I will offer you this ray of sunshine:  At least we're not as bad off as Germany.

In Germany, the massive influx of Islamic refugees makes the United States' current situation look positively covetable. Turning a blind eye to gang rapes, violent crimes, and cultural subjugation has become de rigueur for the alpine nation, and it's showed no sign of backtracking.  ...Until now.

Now, Justice Minister Heiko Maas has mustered the honor, integrity, and intestinal fortitude it takes to tell Islamists that the country is no longer going to tolerate polygamy and forced marriages to child brides. 

From the Daily Mail:

Germany will no longer allow migrants to have multiple wives or child brides, the justice minister has said.

Heiko Maas told German newspaper Bild that no one has the 'right to place their cultural values or religious beliefs above our laws'. 

There has been increased concern over polygamous marriages in the wake of a rise in the number of migrants arriving in Germany, many from Muslim countries.

While polygamy is already banned in Germany, many officials 'turn a blind eye' to migrants who arrive in the country with more than one wife, the newspaper reports. 

This is also true of forced and underage marriages. 

Mr Maas told the tabloid: 'We need to look very carefully. Forced marriages, we can not tolerate, and certainly not when underage girls are involved. 

Aren't they brave!?  Isn't this just inspiring!? Why, they've somehow managed to overcome their penchant for political correctness long enough to declare the rape of children unacceptable!

We're oh-so-impressed.

Frankly, the fact that this is even a news story should tell you something about how bad things have gotten in Europe.  That this needs to be reported suggests that western standards and values are being crushed under the weight of Islam's might. It's simply terrifying that ANY nation needed to have an internal debate about this, let alone one that lasted more than ten seconds and became a news story.
