“Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has signed a law aimed at keeping the state’s courts or government agencies from basing decisions on Islamic or other foreign legal codes” and CAIR, yes, the terrorist affiliated muslime bunch that should have been deported years ago is threatening to challenge the law.
Similar laws have already been enacted in Arizona, Louisiana and Tennessee, and another was passed in Oklahoma but shot down by an activist 10th Circuit Federal Court judge because it specifically mentioned Sharia law, which the judge ruled made it discriminatory against a specific religion. As yet, no new effort is being made by Oklahoma to rewrite the law and pass it that I’ve heard of.
The argument against these laws is that Jews also have religious laws that courts sometimes recognize, so picking out Islamic law is discriminatory. Fine. Then the muslime should have no problem if ALL religious law is banned from our courts in the interest of Constitutional separation of Church and State, which is exactly what the new Kansas law does. Where they think they have a challenge is “because supporters of the measure frequently expressed concern about Shariah law”. Good luck with that weak premise.
This makes 4 states now with laws restricting our courts to considering ONLY U.S.A. laws and no other from any other nation, religion, cult, labor union, fraternal brotherhood, nudists, channelers of ancient spirits, tree worshippers or people who paint themselves blue.
About damn time the rest of the states joined in.
