Gov't Attorney: Obama Admin. May Sue States to Prevent Them From Limiting Sharia Law
Pundit Press ^ | 4/30/11 | Aurelius

Posted on 04/30/2011 7:48:07 AM PDT by therightliveswithus

Sharia law is a system of legal and illegality based solely on the Koran and Islamic teachings. In the United States, it has been widely panned because of its disrespect towards women, amongst other things. Likewise, Sharia law could not be implemented in the United States because it would violate the belief in a separation of Church (or in this case, Mosque) and State.

Despite this, however, ​U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Richard Callahan assured Missouri Muslims yesterday that the Obama Administration would likely step in on behalf of Sharia law should any state try to ban it. Discussing the Missouri State Legislature's attempt to limit Sharia law, Callahan stated:

"The Department of Justice has a good history of challenging laws passed by state legislatures. If some laws are passed, I think you will see challenges by the federal government on the constitutionality of them."

In other words, if Missouri passes a law (which, of course, state have the sovereignty to do), the Administration or higher-ups in it would challenge it. They'll challenge it even though the law would be Constitutional and the thing they are limiting is unconstitutional. That is our government at work.

First we have to get rid of the Communist Administration. Then we can go to work at ridding ourselves of 3rd way RINOS.

And the Leftists will still ‘flip out’ if you say he is a Muslim.

Everything he has done in office has had a Muslim slant.

But we are supposed to ignore this, deny reality, and pretend he is Christian. Obama, and his whole staff, are walking like ducks and quacking like ducks.

We are told to put our head in the sand.

"The Muslim call to prayer is the most beautiful sound on Earth." What American President would ever say that?

That would have been a great time to behead the miserable cur. And he'd have had no complaint coming.

I'm surprised none of the Hollytrash Limo Libs haven't hatched schemes to produce and broadcast Sharia Court TV.

OK - Now let me understand this.

If MY morals and values prevent ME from endorsing and paying for aborting live children, or if the doctor’s values and morals prevent HIM from aborting live children - Obama’s US government and his national ABCNNBCBS media declare ME to be illegal and prevent ME from even protesting such murders in a public place. “I” will be cursed and arrested as a hate-monger and rabid, intolerant Christian.

But if a Muslim’s religion and so-called values REQUIRE him to murder his wife or child because SHE wants to wear a dress or appear in public unescorted, then HIS Muslim “values” will be defended by the full force and law and guns of Obama’s government?

That image says it all about what’s coming in the future.

History is going to repeat itself.

If Euro-Americans are to remain free, history MUST repeat itself.

There’s no promise that this time, the final results will be different. But that’s the chance that must be taken. The freedoms we cherish cannot be maintained on our present course — if they are to be preserved for the future, there is no choice other than to “break away” and chart a NEW course.

As Churchill once said:
“If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

Just sayin’...

Welcome to the generation of illiterate and ill-informed grads.

If Obama (and his wrecking crew) gets his way there will be no America.

Free speech being limited to promote Islam and leave it’s growth unabated?

“Most people do not recognize that what happens in a mosque is sedition. Pure and simple. Islam is not just a “religion”, it is a cult. Larger than that though, it is a political system, it is it’s own government, a economic system (which includes funding new mosque construction), it’s judicial…all wrapped up in the word sharia. This is inclusive of its military (jihadis) all rolled into one with one intent …and that is to rule wherever they take root. It is an invasive, systemic infection looking to take over the host once it has quantum.

This is not a “religion”, but something that cloaks itself in those terms so it should not be given the same treatment contemplated under the first amendment. The Koran’s Sharia rules are to consume whatever government there is wherever it goes. Islam is political, and it’s goal is to supplant and replace. Globally.”

Supplant and replace? That is a direct threat to the American constitution.

Innocent religion? ~~~ NOT!

Seditioust and treasonous behavior? YOU BET!

Just to mess with their brains, one of the very conservative state should push some limited but explicit “establishment of religion.” Just some statement that “Christianity shall be especially honored” or some such addition to their state constitution.

Which individual states have a right to do....

Just to watch the DOJ freak out.

Yep, that pretty much says it all.

Send me to a farm in Kansas. I will gladly spend out my days shooting deer and squirrel and growing wheat. That would be fine.

That would be fine...until the government shows up, and wants 55% of my crop. Then, things might get ugly.

>> God save us all..

The muslim infestation is God’s final warning. Islam is satanic and its followers are, whether knowingly or not, following Satan. They are picking off God’s people one by one as we embrace inclusiveness and universalism and the idea that all religions are equal and valid. Our overdeveloped sense of tolerance demands that we base our version of Christianity on “Judge not, that ye be not judged” and ignore the parts about “No one comes to the Father except through me.” When faced with the words right there on the page in red, we are expected to add a caveat that we don’t know what that means for those who are not Christian.

God will save us in the end if we stick with Him, but the road is not going to be easy.

I guess, we have to toss them into the soup along with the others.

Or, are we openly declaring that Islam is somehow ‘better’ or ‘more deserving’ of any other tribal legal system?

Imposing sharia law on the States is an establishment of religion. It’s unconstitutional. If there is a civil war in this country, I think it will be over things like this. That is, the federal government ignoring its own laws for political purposes.

All non-citizen Muslims should have been deported starting on 9/12/01. When we get full control back, it should be the first action, along with surveillance of all citizen Muslims. Sharia should be forbidden in any case where it conflicts with the U.S. Constitution or federal, state or local law. < /rant >

In the United States the validity of a state or national law is based on the Constitution, isn’t it? Whether a proposed law is part of a set of Sharia laws is irrelevant, isn’t it?

Are changes to our law being proposed that would be unacceptable except for the fact that they are part of Sharia law?

Take wife beating. Is someone arguing that whereas it would normally be unacceptable, because it is part of Sharia law it will be considered acceptable? That makes no sense.

Can someone clarify this issue for me? I don’t see why it is an issue at all.
