Oklahoma's Ban on Shariah Law Blocked: Supporters Blame State Attorney General
Fox News ^ | Nov. 8, 2010 | Ed Barnes

Posted on 11/08/2010 3:56:57 PM PST by USALiberty

A popular new law that bars Oklahoma courts from considering Islamic law, or Shariah, when deciding cases was put on hold Monday after a prominent Muslim in the state won a temporary restraining order in federal court.

Two state legislators were quick to blast the judge's ruling and the Oklahoma attorney general, who they said did not stand up to support the new law.

OMG! HOW FAR WILL THE LIBERAL TRAITORS GO?

Now they are DEFENDING SHARIA LAW?

And who is this "prominent Muslim" who just "happens" to live in Oklahoma. How IS it that we seem to have Muslims in EVERY state these days, huh? Just a few years ago, you never saw any Muslims outside a few cities.

We are all Oklahomans now! DEFEND OKLAHOMA!

Same ole’, same ole’. Arizona’s AG wanted to sit on his hands. Judges should be impeached and AG’s too. Otherwise Oklahoma rocks on politics.

We need to get this same law, using the same language, on the ballots in ALL 50 STATES! Let the courts strike THAT down!

I have a HS classmate who now lives in OK. Told me last Tuesday that OK went solid conservative, even against Obamacare. She loves the state..except for the winters.

I think we have some Judges that need to be disbarred, and have their license to be stripped from them. This is perhaps the most basic tenent of the US Constitution’s First Ammendment.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

All the Oklahoma law sought to do was to ensure that Sharia law was not enacted as a religous law, either superceding or replacing the existing rule of law.

We already have cities under Sharia. So, now they want to go after ENTIRE STATES? Well, at least we seem to have flushed out the REAL liberal agenda!

Yes! and now we all know what needs to be done. We have completed step one. Now we must KEEP THE FAITH as they try to discourage us and make us loose track of what we are trying to do. the November elections in 2012 is just around the corner and it will be much harder then than it was in 2010 because they now know what we are about.

In 2012 we need to preserve the gains in the house, clean up the senate and retake the POTUS. We have made great strides in the state houses around the country and now we have to finish the job. This type of mis step by the left will only help in the long run. EDUCATE! EDUCATE! EDUCATE! especially the young voters. We need their passion. We need the blacks to vote with us and we need more of the female (they and the seniors are what put us over the top).

This is about preserving our country.

No court can consider another "body of law" if it stands in conflict to a right guaranteed by the US Constitution. The Supremacy Clause will not allow it.

If Sharia law places women subordinate to men, no judge can use that as the basis of a decision because it violates the Equal Protection amendment in the Constitution.

The evil of the left. These judges will block all Judeo Christian influence in laws, schools, etc.

Then they will block a prohibition on the application of Muslim religous law.

Pure evil crazy leftists.

I read in another news article on this matter that the CAIR advocate wasn’t even from Oklahoma but Georgia. No AG challenged the guy’s standing. Indeed, the AG didn’t even oppose the peliminary restraining order. He just punted because he lost his job in the last election. Don’t worry, the Oklahoma citizens will get the SOBs sooner or later.

It is well-known that the word "Oklahoma" is Indian for "Land of the Red Man".

That isn't quite an accurate translation. In fact, "Oklahoma" comes from the Tonkawa language and means "Land of red dirt and bad water where red man get sick and die".

I assume everyone is aware that Soros spent tens of millions$ on his "Secretary of State Project?"

Precisely to deal with irritations like the will of the people.

And the truly stupid people of California still haven't figured out that their judges are legislating them illegally from the bench --- into painful bankruptcy.

They confirmed every state judge presently on the bench. "Clueless" doesn't begin to describe it.

No, silly! Just islam.

Which just happens to be the only "religion" in the world that imposes secular laws much more rigidly than religious laws.

Those secular laws just happen to be 100% opposed to our Constitutional guarantees.

One of the things all those Republican-controlled State legislators and the GOP-controlled US House need to do is to start impeaching Judges.

Federal Judges can be impeached by a majority of the US House and then let the Democrats defend them and not convict them.

Let's see, the Arizona judge, who shot down their immigration law, which was identical to the Federal law, California judges, who overturned Prop 8, that Detroit Judge, who ruled ObamaCare mandate to buy health insurance was constitutional. There are loads of judges, start impeaching and let the Dem's defend these black-robed tyrants.
