Police arrested a 27-year-old Memphis man after his wife said he attacked and raped her.
Memphis police said the man drove his wife to the back of a church parking lot. There, he accused her of cheating on him.
Officers said the man then held his wife down, choked, and raped her.
The woman said her husband told her, "I am your husband. I can't rape you. I can get it anytime I want."
The woman called police and after an examination at the rape crisis center, officers arrested her husband and charged him with aggravated rape and assault.
Of course he probably believes he cannot rape his wife because he is listening to people like that guy who posted on the Christian website that husbands "should not tolerate refusal," and other upstanding religious leaders who claim that once married a woman belongs to her man, and must obey him just as she would obey God.
This is, of course, the same kind of thinking that allows religious extremists all over the world to brutalize women and claim that it is their right by virtue of their faith.
