It is OK to slap Saudi women who spend too much, according a Saudi judge

Husbands are allowed to slap their wives if they spend lavishly, a Saudi judge said recently during a seminar on domestic violence, Saudi media reported Sunday. But o, if the pope dares to say something negative about Islam...
