Posted on 05/19/2014 9:00:47 AM PDT by PoloSec
Sharia law has become a hot button issue in America ever since reports broke of the Muslim Brotherhood creating a political party to push for states to adopt Islamic law into the U.S. legal code.
This course of action has led many states, who are concerned about the negative impact Islamic law would have on women and children, to create legislation banning Sharia law from state courts.
Seven states have voted to adopt anti-Sharia law legislation, or at least attempt to, since this issue has come to forefront. North Carolina and Florida are two of the recent additions to the list, with many others soon to follow.
In Oklahoma, legislation to ban Sharia law was struck down by the court for discriminating among religions without justification, leaving the state vulnerable to the dangers posed by Islamic law.
North Carolina took measures to help avoid the problem of religious discrimination in order to ensure the bill passed.
Via Deseret News:
[ ] the law in Oklahoma was struck down in court as unconstitutional, according to the Progressive Pulse, because it discriminated among religions without justification.
North Carolina lawmakers tried to avoid that problem by not mentioning Sharia in the legislation but instead banning enforcement of all foreign laws.
Those in favor of banning Sharia law believe that passing legislation is critical for protecting the Constitution from laws that are not compatible with the current legal system.
Supporters hailed the bill as an important safeguard that protects the American legal system from foreign laws that are incompatible with the U.S. Constitution, RNS reported, while critics argued the Constitution already overrides foreign laws.
Progressives, of course, are attempting to flip these arguments around to make supporters of this type of law intolerant of others religious beliefs, which is strange given the fact that liberals often attempt to use the same measures to silence those who hold to traditional Judeo-Christian values.
(The legislation is) primarily designed to stir up anti-Islamic prejudice by creating fears that Islamic Sharia law is somehow going to take over the American legal system, Carl Ernst, a religious studies professor at the University of North Carolina, told the Daily Tarheel.
The BizPac Review reported that supporters of legislation blocking enforcement of Islamic law in state courts arent targeting religion.
No one has a problem with Muslims or anyone else living peaceably in America, the Rev. Mark Creech said in an article published on the Christian Action League website. But on U.S. soil, we must all embrace the freedoms and responsibilities assigned us via the Constitution, and not demand enforcement of rules and regulations left behind in other cultures.
The states that have successfully banned Sharia law are taking the necessary steps to preserve the U.S. Constitution from the corruption of foreign legal codes. The successful passage of these bills is a huge victory for liberty loving people in America.
Sharia law is incredibly oppressive and dangerous, calling for extremely harsh punishments for crime and making spouse abuse legally permissible, which is why it absolutely needs to be banned. More states must address this issue before the push to adopt Islamic law gains support and momentum.
Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you agree that more states need to start banning Sharia law and protecting our freedoms.
Seven states? ...and they are..?
Simply ban ALL foreign laws or rulings to be used in our system of courts and law. No foreign law shall be used to determine anything against anyone for anything. If it is not written into US law, it does not exist. Simple as that in my humble opinion.
Is Islam voluntary?
When was the Christian Reformation?
How old is Islam?
I do, because they cannot.
As with same-sex marriage, all it will take is a couple of states passing/allowing it, and Lib/Leftist FED judges will force it to apply in other states.
REFERENCE Federal outreach to Muslim American communities is a pillar of Obama counter-terrorism strategy

Within hours of the Boston Marathon blasts, government officials and Muslims in Boston called each other to offer assistance. These calls were the fruits of years of cultivating such relationships in an effort to ultimately prevent the very type of attack Boston experienced April 15....
Representatives from the US Departments of Justice and Homeland Security called to offer support to Muslim communities......just in case THEY suffered backlash or threats. (more on FR).
Is Texas one of these states?
This is a favor to 90% of Muslims who came here in part to get away from the worst of Islam...
... haters, every one of them. Intollerant, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, bigoted haters.
And they're probably all full of white people, too........
What I’d like to know is where are all the folks, like the ACLU, who are constantly promoting separation of church and state? Why would it be Constitutional for any government to adopt Sharia? Would that not be a blatant violation of the separation of church and state?
Why is the subject of sharia law brought up in the first place?
Don’t we already have a civil law?
Does anyone really believe that muzzies came to America to leave the oppressive live under Islam?
Aren’t they here and in Europe in order to establish the very cult that they claim to have fled? Just look at the many mosques that have been and are being erected everywhere in this country.
Have we seen any conversions away from Islam upon arrival in this country or in Europe now that they have the freedom to do so?
Do we hear condemnation from American and European Muslims of the atrocities committed by fellow Muslims in Muslim countries?
Hell, did we hear condemnations from American Muslims at what happened on 9/11/2001?
I found this on another site:
“States like Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Tennessee have all passed similar legislation.”
Lotsa talk lately about North Carolina’s “violent swing to the far right”. Electoral shifts, voter ID now required, and now anti-shariah legislation.
Sounds hopeful. For a while here in South Carolina we thought NC stood for `Northern Commieland’. Asheville, Chapel Hill, you get the picture. Charlotte is awfully diverse, too, with a new mega mosque on the way.
But recent protests by aggrieved members of the entitlement community prove that real progress is being made.
Thank you...I was hoping Tennessee would be one of them.
That is one aspect. Another principle is all people should have equal treatment under the law. We should not have different laws applied to people based on their racial or ethnic group.
Thanks. You’re lucky. I wish my state - Pennsylvania - was on the list.
I’m pretty sure the U.S. Constitution already says that.
Not lucky yet...still trapped in Red England...should have stayed in Tennessee in the first place. :-(
Sooner or later it’ll be like the gay “marriage” crap. They will bitch and moan and sue and get their way and most Americans will roll over, bow down and submit.
With DimoCommies in charge, the US Constitution does not exist.
Islam was a small cult back around the year 1000 AD. Charlemagne helped spread it among his empire. At the time, it consisted of the belief that followers would spend every waking moment making themselves perfect in the eyes of God, which meant unwavering adherence to the ten commandments, including THOU SHALT NOT KILL. The rulers of the kingdoms in the empire said “we can’t adopt this religion, our people won’t fight our battles or guard our borders”. So, they had their wise men alter the meaning of some of the words, making the battle of good versus evil that everyone fights inside themselves an external battle of believer versus non-believer.
Well then neither does any other law.
PS: that includes DimoCommie advocate judges.
That friend, is the way they want it. Then their commie judges can make up anything they want anyway they desire it.
“...struck down in court as unconstitutional...because it discriminated among religions without justification.”
What other religions have their own legal/political system?
Local and state measures are just a phone call from Holder and a Lib Moonbat Judge away from vaporization. Just wait.
What danger is that?
That is why “simply ban[ning] ALL foreign laws or rulings to be used in our system of courts and law...” will not work.
Ha! Living in Konnecticut I'd be happy with a gentle nudge just to the right of Lefty Lunacy.
(For now, anyways - can't expect miracles where Libtards are concerned)
“Average” American muslims are sharia’s support troops. Just see how fast they’d rally to it.
Yes, that really does happen.
The problem is Muslim immigrants often want the benefits of a free society while keeping the parts of Islam that benefit them personally. Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't...
If the people running this country weren't so corrupt and PC we could easily assimilate Muslims living here - rather than allow dems to gin up their differences into hatred - like they've done with blacks.
“....we could easily assimilate Muslims living here....”
Did they assimilate in Europe where they constantly kiss muzzie a$$?
Have they assimilated ANYWHERE in the world?
Thanks. Has it always been involuntary, ie death penalty for apostasy?
The key is to keep their numbers low.
