Several Call for Penn. Muslim Judge to Be Fired; Mark Martin Threw Out Assault Case against Muslim

The One News Now website reports today (February 28, 2012) that a legal expert, a former Navy chaplain, and a pro-family leader are among many people who agree that Pennsylvania judge Mark Martin -- a convert to Islam -- should be removed from the bench for throwing out an assault case lodged against a Muslim who attacked an atheist dressed as a zombie Mohammad at a halloween parade last year.

The incident -- recorded on video -- occurred on October 11, 2011 at the Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania Halloween Parade. Ernie Pierce -- an atheist -- was attacked by Talaag Elbayomy, because of Pierce's costume.

Judge Martin threw out video evidence of the assault, dismissed the testimony of an eyewitness officer, and then lectured the atheist victim about the sensitivities of the Muslim culture.

In fact, Judge Martin stated in court that as a Muslim, Elbayomy was "obligated to attack the victim because of his culture and religion."
