Oklahoma Will Ban Sharia Law, Which Was Just About to Take Over
When visiting Oklahoma, you no longer need worry about being subjected to sharia law.
I know this was a serious concern for many people.
Oklahoma is poised to become the first state in the nation to ban state judges from relying on Islamic law known as Sharia when deciding cases.
The ban is a cornerstone of a “Save our State” amendment to the Oklahoma constitution that was recently approved by the Legislature. The amendment — which also would forbid judges from using international laws as a basis for decisions — will now be put before Oklahoma’s voters in November. Approval is expected.
Oklahoma has few Muslims – only 30,000 out of a population of 3.7 million. The prospect of sharia being applied there seems remote.
But a chief architect of the measure, Republican State Rep. Rex Duncan, calls the proposed ban a necessary “preemptive strike” against Islamic law coming to the state.
Thank you, Republican State Rep. Rex Duncan. We really dodged a bullet this time.
When last seen at LGF, Oklahoma Republicans were trying to pass a law that would force women who have abortions to undergo an invasive ultrasound procedure.
So they obviously know a misogynistic, repressive legal system based on religion when they see one.
