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.

Unfortunately, not true any more. Per the 14th (and court cases), the Bill of Rights is incorporated against the states. It's the same reason Chicago cannot ban guns--the 2nd is incorporated against the states.
How many times did it take her to pass the Bar exam, one year every graduate from howard failed the Maryland Bar Exam
Because of this, Sharia law violates the constitution by setting up a second branch of the Judiciary, (an other government) and violates Section 1 of the 14th amendment, equal protection.
Sharia law and western democracy are implacable enemies and cannot coexist. One or the other will be destroyed. Nowhere has this world view existed in peace with others.
Islam must be recognized as a violent political and terrorist movement much like the former National Socialist German Workers Party. When it removes it's political demands, and ceases to claim a right to forcibly subjugate other religions by doctrine or law, Islam may be considered a religion “like any other”.
That is my opinion.
What happens when a state just ignores the dictators in black robes?
What’s being a woman got to do with it?
Even more irritating is that the person that filed the suit is NOT an Oklahoma resident and DOES NOT HAVE STANDING. The judge should never have listened to the case.
Funny has “Standing” is only important to liberal judges when it involves suits against the POTUS.
“and the state of OKLAHOMA just needs to bring back their National Guard where ever they are and tell the feds...
The National Guard stopped being a strictly “State” militia a long time ago. Should a governor try to use it to enforce an Oklahoma law (perfectly reasonable) that the federal government didn’t want enforced, the POTUS would simply federalize it. Happened too many times in the past in Arkansas and Alabama. So, the Guard is not the answer.
Additionally, although I agree this idiot judge should be removed from the bench, it won’t happen because Congress won’t take the time to deal with it....and wouldn’t. That doesn’t make them right, but that is the way it is.
So, I’m not sure how to fix this. The answer has to be a political one.
“What happens when a state just ignores the dictators in black robes?”
That seems to be the most reasonably solution in my thinking. Simple passive resistance.
Another unconstitutional piece O crap.
Can’t believe you even have to ask, but since you did....
Sharia Law is especially harsh on women.
Liberal women love to blast Christians, but never speak out against the abuses, REAL abuses of women under this law.
Thank you for your service! Any time you want to move back to Oklahoma, you will be welcomed with open arms. If you ever get to OKC. Let me know and we can share a cup of coffee.
I agree with your words. But remember, this is but the first shot fired in a long battle. We must remain steadfast to our calling.
Again, thank you for your service.
No, think sharia...
yep, it’s sick, and that’s the point.
“Theyre not untouchable.”
They were during the Kelo ruling. Something’s gotta give.
It’s sad to have to count judicial noses, but that’s where we’re at right now — one heart beat away from a radical supreme court.
I am confident that Justice Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito will not stand for this. Kennedy is the wild card. If Kennedy decides that amemdnets such as this require a judicial stamp of approval, then legal solutions are in serious trouble. Kennedy was pro-Kelo but also recently was pro-gun rights. He seems impressionable to his fellow justices’ influence. Will Kagan and the rest talk him into an oligarchy? That’s the question. Until that question is answered, let’s keep the safety on, OK?
> that the law stigmatizes his religion
Imagine Christians trying to make the same argument. They would be shredded by the courts and the press, not to mention the ACLU, PAW, CPUSA, SPLC, and the other usual suspects.
> Until Islam is reformed by Muslims
Sorry, the most violent mohammedans *ARE* the reformers.
The Christian Reformation was initiated when people started “Reading the Book”. Freedom of Conscience is a fundamental Christian principle. The Reformation led to the Renaissance, which led to the Enlightenment.
The closer a Christian Society gets to the Bible, the freer people become to make their own choices. What better way to reveal the true character of a man than to see the choices he freely makes.
The closer a Mohammedan gets to his Quran, the more violent and hateful he becomes. The Quran is a hateful, violent screed compiled from the rantings and droolings of the syphillitic pedophile pirate Mohammed.
Mohammed was a pirate, a thief, a mass murderer, a torturer, a rapist, a pedophile, a polygamist, a slave trader, a Jew-hater, and all around genocidal savage.
Mohammed, the genocidal savage, pedophile pirate, is held as the paragon of Mohammedanism. All Mohammedans who hold the foaming ravings in Mohammed’s hateful screed as literal commandments from their demonic deity, and aspire to the murderous achievments of their bloody “prophet”, will commit the most savage acts imaginable, as has been clearly seen throughout the ages, since the emergence of Mohammedanism in the seventh century.
There is no way to “reform” this rabid, hateful, murderous, genocidal, insane cult of death.
Islam must be eradicated if there is to be any hope for any peace.
Agreed, except that I do not believe it is our job to eradicate Islam. It is our job to debunk, ridicule, scorn and repudiate it as not a religion, but a totalitarian world view that only morons, perverts, thugs, and the ignorant would subscribe to. The same way we treated NAZISM during WW2. Islamic groups investigated, infiltrated, and disrupted, with its leaders jailed.
“Any time you want to move back to Oklahoma”
I may live in Missouri, but my heart remains in Oklahoma.
:-) I have never been ashamed to tell folks I am from Oklahoma.
