Order Blocks Oklahoma Constitutional Amendment
newsok.com ^ | November 8, 2010 | Tim Talley

Posted on 11/08/2010 10:32:14 AM PST by gwjack

A temporary restraining order has been issued to block a state constitutional amendment that prohibits state courts from considering international or Islamic law when deciding cases. U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange handed down the ruling this morning in Oklahoma City following a brief hearing.

Dhimmi liberal judges who want to impose Sharia upon us.

Outrageous!

In order to issue a TRO the judge must find that it’s more likely than not the movant will prevail on the merits of the case. I’d love to see how the Judge came to that legal conclusion.

Of the judges in the Western District, M-G was the only one that I had concerns about. I stilll have a hard time believing a state judge would find Sharia Law persuasive in either criminal or civil matters.

It sorta remiand me of the white lawyer making an argument to a black judge in 1983. He argued certain international law should be applied. He was in favor of the law of South Africa. I would have been too embarrassed to ask a black judge to follow non-binding South African law. Oh, this was before the end of apartheid.

What about the will of the people?
And it was done in the approved legal method, it was put out to the voters to decide.

Vickie is an idiotic, over advanced incompetent. There is no way this was ripe for a challenge. The 10th Circuit should reverse. The only way an Muslim could be harmed by this amendment would be if a Muslim asked for relief under Sharia Law and was denied. This amendment controls the courts of Oklahoma not Muslims.

Considering CAIR said they would never ask for Sharia Law in Oklahoma, how can they be harmed by this constitutional amendment?

“The order was sought in a lawsuit by Oklahoma Muslim Muneer Awad. Awad is executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Oklahoma and said during the hearing that the law stigmatizes his religion.”

wow.

I’d love to see how the Judge came to that legal conclusion.

Presumably by the incorporation doctrine, applied to Amendment I, first clause.

Look, banning Islam is going to require a Federal constitutional amendment. That is true without question.

Work on it, by all means, but don't waste time on state or Federal legislation, because it's not going to work.

It looks like the federal courts will side with the Islamo-fascists just like they have sided with the Mexican fascists.

It is distressing to know that we have more traitors and foreign operatives trying to bring down the United States internally than we have abroad.

And the federal judiciary will give them carte blanche to do whatever they want in the United States.

I'd be checking her out for an Arab boyfriend somewhere.

Remember when we had John Mohammad running around the DC area shooting people, the Mayor back in Portland was this woman who tried to prevent the FBI, etc, from INVESTIGATING local situations that might have involved John. She had several Moslem boyfriends.

The amendment is pre-emptive anyway. We have plenty of time before it is actually needed.

Sharia law is completely incompatible with the constitution anyway. If this amendment is struck down, it will be because it is unconstitutional. It will be interesting to see what twisted logic is used to support that position.

Let me see if I understand this....a JUDGE who is simply an opinion to an issue of the people who PASSED a constitutional issue in their state has STOPPED the people from doing their will?

Impeach her, remover her and JAIL HER for 20 years at hard labor. I am damned sick and tired of judges like this and worse, I am sick of the people thinking they can do nothing about it.

“Stigmatizes his religion”. So is he an outspoken critic of the Saudi theocratic Islamic system of government then?

Saudi Arabia is funding the establishment of Islamic colonies and learning centers in the US.

Nobody tried to “ban Islam”, rather they banned a theocratic legal and political system (Sharia law). How in the world could that conflict with the first amendment?

Please explain. This is not a free speach issue - it is about what constitutes the “law” that judges are interpreting.

I thought judges were supposed to follow the laws and statutes enacted by the legislature. I guess they only wish to do so when it suits them.

CAIR understands the important of this: it erects a firewall against the gradual implementation of Sharia. If the amendment stands, it will becpome a model nationwide and it will spur an elightened disucssion of Islam and Sharia. They want to fly under the radar.

"A native of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Miles-LaGrange, received a certificate from the University of Ghana in Accra, Ghana, West Africa in 1973, and graduated cum laude from Vassar College in 1974. She then received her J.D. from Howard University in Washington, DC in 1977. There, she was an editor of The Howard Law Journal."

Translation fro her academic qualifications: She never went to a real School with credentials that would allow legitimate study of the 'Law'( not U.S Law anyway).

A certificate from the University of Ghana qualifies her to drink Jim Jones' Kool-Aid.

The overwhelming majority of Students at Howard University still think O.J. was not guilty. So much for their 'Law Review'.

Conclusion: Typical of the quality of Federal Judges that President Clinton appointed when everybody was watching Monica and her worn out Knee-pads.

Can’t wait for the first case in Oklahoma where the Muslim man’s defense is that he had to murder his wife/daughter under the dictates of Sharia honor killing.

How can the election board be prevented from certifying the election results if the question is a matter of constitutionality, not a question of whether or not the election was legal (fair)?

I am assuming this case is NOT brought on grounds of voting irregularities.

This doesn't ban Islam. It bans the use of Sharia in court, which could be used to harm non-Muslims and women, which would violate the US Constitution's currently guaranteed equal protection.

But even if it were an amendment to the US Constitution, somehow a liberal judge would find a way to throw it out as unconstitutional. If you're putting it in the Constitution, that would mean it's unconstitutional right now, so the act of trying to put it into the Constitution is unconstitutional. Nice catch-22.
