Oklahoma anti-Shariah amendment struck down

Posted on August 21, 2013





A federal judge has struck down Oklahoma’s constitutional amendment that would have prohibited judges in the state from considering Shariah law.

The amendment was approved by about 70 percent of Oklahoma voters on November 2, 2010, but the American Civil Liberties Union and the Council on American-Islamic Relations sued to block the amendment, arguing it violated separation of church and state and discriminated against Muslims.

A U.S. District Court judge agreed and issued a temporary injunction against the amendment. That decision was upheld in 2011 by a federal appeals court that returned the case to the judge, who made the final ruling Thursday (Aug. 15).

“It is our hope that, in finding this anti-Islam law unconstitutional, lawmakers in other states will think twice before proposing anti-Muslim laws of their own,” said Gadeir Abbas, a CAIR staff attorney and counsel for the plaintiffs.

I don't get this. I really don't. Judges that consider ANY other laws than what are U.S. laws are violating the law. Someone please make sense out of this for me.

How is telling the courts (the gov't) they can't use religious law in their rulings a violation of separation of church and state? It sounds like it reinforces the idea.

The entire separation of church and state argument is nothing but an attack on Christianity and traditional American values. Pure and simple.

I totally agree with this. The leftists are taking on the new master of Islam to oust what they see as the Great Evil; i.e. Christianity.

However, I think they will be rather disappointed with the new master when they are successful.

Then the Christians should demand that the law recognize
"Christian law"
And the Buddhists, and the Taoists, etc.....

What's the point. There is no law in the US any more. The only thing holding us together now is force of habit.

Our President doesn't follow the law. Judges make up law as they see fit. Congress passes laws they never even read.

THERE IS NO LAW>
