The End of Pure Liberalism

Earlier this year a German judge rejected a Muslim woman’s request for a speedy divorce from her husband who regularly beats her.  The judge cited the Koran’s (debated) allowance for husbands to beat disobedient wives.  Story here.

Does truth become true as a result of democracy?  Do all standards of social behavior rise from the community?  If so, than this judge is justified.  Or, perhaps, the judge is ahead of her time . . . eventually the entire community will agree and the husband is allowed to beat his wife. 

Or, is there truly a standard of truth outside the community?

Is the United States going this direction?
