Supreme Court Judge Willing to Give Up U.S. Sovereignty?

"...the Supreme Court's sole female justice told a group of budding lawyers in Ohio that U.S. courts, including her own, should refer to foreign law when deciding cases and that any squeamishness about that was just a "passing phase."

"Ginsburg asked, "Why shouldn't we look to the wisdom of a judge from abroad with at least as much ease as we would read a law-review article written by a professor?" [link]

Well madam Ginsburg, how about the "wisdom" of a judge that states: "The law, passed last month, says a husband can demand sex with his wife every four days unless she is ill or would be harmed by intercourse — a clause that critics say legalizes marital rape. It also regulates when and for what reasons a wife may leave her home alone." [link]

We won't even bother to discuss that pesky Constitution thing that you took an oath to uphold. You know the supreme law of the land for the United States, but why let a small thing like that bother you.
