Great, then we'll not only have to deal with fanatical Muslim religions here, but the same old crazy Southern Baptists, Sikhs, Mormons, Protestants, Lutherns, Catholics and Jews to boot. Man, what's this country coming to, eh?

13 States Introduce Bills to Ban Sharia Law

Are you ever afraid that fundamentalist Muslim extremists will take over your state court house? That’s the idea behind Islamic legal code Sharia law will somehow make its way to the United States. The code is usually represented in the West as one mandating that rape victims or battered wives be stoned to death, and more broadly pointed to as evidence Islam’s mythical barbarism. Those sorts of ideas have formed the undercurrent of anti-Muslim sentiment in the U.S. for decades.

Now, over a dozen states are taking the same road traveled by voters in Oklahoma who passed a bill to guard against the threat of Sharia law on America’s shores. The attempt was largely criticized for unfairly targeting and blaming Muslims, a reason cited by Federal Court Judge Vicki Miles-LeGrange in the decision to issue a federal injunction. But that hasn’t stopped more than a dozen other states from forging ahead. Think Progress has this round-up:

•
ALASKA: Rep. Carl Gatto (R) has introduced SB 88, which invokes the Constitution to make sure that “foreign law is prohibited.”

•
ARIZONA: Arizona’s anti-Sharia law is HB 2582, the “Arizona Foreign Decisions Act.” In addition to banning the implementation of Sharia law, the bill would also ban “canon law, halacha and karma.”

•
ARKANSAS: Arkansas’s anti-Sharia bill is SB 97, which says that the “the recognition and enforcement (.PDF) of a foreign judgment or ruling is limited to the extent that its 33 enforcement would not directly conflict with the public policy of Arkansas.”

•
GEORGIA: Rep. Mike Jacobs (R) has introduced a bill that would “ban the use of Sharia law in state courts.” Jacobs says of the issue,“We’re seeing more of a feeling that Sharia law should be applied in domestic cases.”“Arbitration is a routine business exercise by people who are prepared to sacrifice some of their constitutional rights in return for reduced cost and expediency,” said Michael J. Broyde, a “member of the Beth Din of America — the largest Jewish law court in the country,” in response to the law.“[The bill would] incapacitate Georgia companies as they engage in international commerce.”

•
INDIANA: Indiana’s SRJ 16 would make it so that courts could not enforce a “law, rule, or legal code or system established and either used or applied in a jurisdiction outside the states of the United States, the District of Columbia, or the territories of the United States if doing so would violate a right guaranteed by this constitution or the Constitution of the United States.”

•
LOUISIANA: Louisiana passed a law guarding against “international law” being used in its courts in June 2010.

•
MISSISSIPPI: House bill 301 was introduced to ban “Mississippi courts from using foreign laws, including Sharia law, which is a guide to Islamic religious practice.”

•
NEBRASKA: Legislative Bill 647 aims to “prohibit Nebraska courts from using foreign laws in decisions.)” If passed, it will have to be voted on by Nebraska voters in 2011 because it is a constitutional amendment.

•
SOUTH CAROLINA: In South Carolina, Sen. Mike Fair (R) has introduced legislation to ban the implementation of Sharia law, saying there is “a need to clarify that cultural customs or foreign laws don’t trump U.S. laws.” He does admit, however, that his bill is “stating the obvious.”

•
TEXAS: State Rep. Leo Berman (R) recently introduced a constitutional amendment “prohibiting a court of this state from enforcing, considering or applying a religious or cultural law.” If the legislature passes the amendment, it will appear on the November 2011 ballot for Texas voters to approve.

•
SOUTH DAKOTA: South Dakota’s anti-Sharia bill is HRJ 1004, which says that no court “may apply international law, the law of any foreign nation, or any foreign religious or moral code with the force of law in the adjudication of any case under its jurisdiction.”

•
UTAH: Rep. Carl Wimmer (R) introduced a bill banning Sharia but then shortly withdrew it after being warned it could harm “international business,” admitting it was “too broad.” He is still looking for ways to ban Sharia.

•
WYOMING: State Rep. Gerald Gay (R) says his bill banning Sharia law is “a ‘pre-emptive strike’ to ensure judges don’t rely on Shariah [sic] in cases involving, for example, arranged marriages,‘honor killings’ or usury cases.”

OK...Im not trying to be the bearer of bad news but if a Muslim decides to follow Sharia Law and isnt actually breaking any laws, how is that any different than a christian following the ten commandments? You just denied someone there freedom of religion buster and that is just plain 100% unamerican if you ask me and against another persons rights. Is it OK to take ones rights away when you say its OK or if it differs with your own beliefs??? Im just looking on the side of the law and not from a christian point of view...lol

Not to mention all the pedophiliac Catholic priests - of which there are now hundreds if not thousands preaching among us and our kids. Or how about all those nasty white supremists, like the guy who killed a whole bunch of Sikh worshipers in Oak Creek, Wisconsin last year because he thought they were Muslims. Or even better, how about the Westboro Baptist Church - these fanatics picket and block US soldier funerals here in the states.

The Muslims aren't the problem - it's the Americans who are the problem - right here in our own backyard.

Excellent point Dave - however, "they're" not like us. "They're" different - "they" have different color skin than "us real Americans." "They" don't wear regular clothes like us "real Americans." Dave, "they" don't even pray to Jesus, "they" pray to some dude named Allah.

It's just downright un-American to let these weirdos in "our" country.

Ended whose rights? The Taliban and Al Qaeda??? Do you honestly think that every muslim living in the United States that live by some type of strict muslim belief fall into the category of those involved with 9-11???You realize you just lumped a whole religion into a fraction of the religion that doesnt even live in this country...that is the equvalent of saying, " I got robbed by a Mexican last night so as far as Im concerned the can all go to hell". Does that seem right to you?

So you're compiling a "hit list" which includes government officials?

Just a second, I'm copying that last post of your's to a file - I'm sure the FBI would be interested.

I dont know Krypteria...do you really think Sharia law is going take over the country??? I believe the Chinese have a better chance of invading and taking over. This country has come so far to ensure many different rights for may different people and I dont see them being given up so easily. The people wouldnt allow. With that being said do you think it is OK to deny an individual the right to practice their religion if they break no laws?

Not allowing certain freedoms, as in denying freedom of religion, is a little socialist, ain't it?

Excuse me, I meant to say hypocritical - my apologies.

No if they want to stick their backsides in the air five times a day that's up to them,people should be allowed to follow what they want as long as it's not demanding of someone else..
I agree I could never image Islam taking over the US in fact it is a decreasing cult oops sorry religion,your your point on china is probably spot on..lol,not a laughing mater sorry just that's more the likely if anything.

In whose eyes??? The crazies in the middle east??? We arent talking about those people we are talking about US citizens. The way one interprets religion is different from the way another does. We find this rampant in Christian beliefs. Do you think US Muslims that believe in Sharia law think they are an infidel??? Im sure there are a few that do but this is par for the course. This in my opinion is no different than the Westboro Baptist Church and the hanus things they do to people. If they arent breaking any laws how can you deny them their rights?

Ever meet a fanatical Muslim?

I didn't think so. My nephew served over in Afghanistan - he's met a couple fanatical Muslims. And so far he hasn't met any over here in the United States - funny how paranoia creates "fanatics," ain't it?

<quoted text>Sharia law does break laws. It infringes on woman, Sharia law, woman are property. They cannot go out alone, they cannot vote, they must be completely covered, If they are raped, they are murdered not the rapist. Educate yourself on Sharia Law before defending it.
If a man and a woman choose to believe this is the way they need to live based on their religion how can you deny them that right? Sharia law varies depending on culture. Ive never heard of an American Islamic woman being killed because she was raped. Again you are confusing what happens in other countries to what happens here. Im not defending Sharia law Im defending ones right to practice religion how they believe as handed down to us by our forefathers. If they are breaking no laws there should be no issue.

Yep! that pretty-much covers the spectrum of the entire scenario:

a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group or Offbeat bloggers) with hatred and intolerance

To use an oxymoron,

Sharia law is required by all muslims and the laws are set forth by judges or the government of a particular country. Not all Sharia law is the same. It is a little ironic that one with an LGBT symbol for their avatar would even consider denying any rights to anyone with the current events of our country. The ignorance is baffling to me.
