Thanks for supporting this bill, BNI Readers! The debate over Sharia Law in state courtrooms has been going on for years. Friday, Governor Mary Fallin signed new legislation to stop the use of foreign laws when they violate the Oklahoma Constitution.
KRMG(h/t Timothy C) House Bill 1060 would also ban foreign laws if they violate the United States Constitution. More than 70-percent of Oklahoma voters approved a ballot question that singled out Sharia law in 2010.
The terror-linked Council on Anti-American Islamic Relations then sued for discrimination. Muneer Awad, with CAIR, said, “The tradition that comes out of this practice, the practice of Islam, the Muslim faith, it points to these things as a threat to the American way of life.” The court agreed with CAIR saying you can’t specifically ban Sharia Law.
This year lawmakers in the Oklahoma House of Representatives wrote a new law in more broad terms. Senator Anthony Sykes told Fox News, “They’re going to have their way over the voice of the people, which in some ways is what Sharia is all about, kind of ironic.”
House Bill 1060, which passed by wide margins in the Oklahoma House of Representatives and the Oklahoma Senate, takes effect November 1.
This effort is focused on sacrifice to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.
