Ballot question seeks to forbid sharia law in OklahomaPosted on June 5, 2010 by creeping Terror-linked CAIR opposes the ballot question…so conversely, CAIR supports the use of sharia law in U.S. courts?EDMOND — State lawmakers say it’s a pre-emptive strike against Sharia law, needed to prevent here what has happened in the United Kingdom.State Question 755, which likely will be on the ballot in November, would make in-state courts rely on federal and state laws when deciding cases and forbid courts from using international law or Sharia law when making rulings.The proposal, which has an Edmond connection, would amend Article 7, Section 1 of the Oklahoma Constitution, and stems from House Joint Resolution 1056, dubbed the “Save Our State” amendment, passed during the just-finished legislative session.State Rep. Lewis Moore, R-Edmond, a co-author of HJR 1056, said he wanted to express his support very early for the legislation, which is needed because of the “onslaught” coming Oklahoma’s way.“I don’t think we should accept or encourage Sharia law in any way, shape or form,” Moore said.State Rep. Rex Duncan, R-Sand Springs, primary author of HJR 1056, said Oklahoma is the first state to pass such legislation and he hopes other states will follow.Duncan, an attorney who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, said the amendment is needed because judges in other states and on the federal bench have increasingly cited international law in their decisions. He said he feels that action is inappropriate in a sovereign state.Duncan said Sharia law is entrenched in the United Kingdom.“It is a cancer upon the survivability of the UK,” Duncan said. “SQ 755 will constitute a pre-emptive strike against Sharia law coming to Oklahoma.”State Sen. Anthony Sykes, R-Moore, a co-author of HJR 1056, said American courts are being more frequently challenged that international law should trump U.S. law.“Sharia law coming to the U.S. is a scary concept,” Sykes said. “Hopefully the passage of this constitutional amendment will prevent it in Oklahoma.”The legislation behind SQ 755 was inspired by the realization, through media observation, that Islam is spreading into America at an alarming rate, and that activist judges are beginning to give credence to “international law,” Duncan said.Duncan said reaction to the proposal has been entirely positive, and he believes as Oklahomans become aware of the measure they will support it overwhelmingly.The Edmond Sun called on the standard Islamist taqiyya masters without even challenging their blatant lies, via Sharia law, courts likely on 2010 ballot

  • I agree Logan! What is a Fed Judge even listening to it for, it is an act of war, remember the Confederacy.
  • Leah, I understand what Sharia law is. I have said in my argument that any judge that allows it in his court room should be stripped of his judicial powers because it is already illegal.
  • Logan O OK thanks for not answering my questions, I was sincere and no emotions, so ?????????? How do you know you are on my side? you don't know what my side is, but hey I tolerate you for now hehehe! I like debating or discussing issues too, you seem to be of a sound mind.
  • Paul you really need to read what I was actually saying instead of trying to pick it apart. How do I not seem neutral? When did I mention any other religion? Yes Leah is protected in saying what she is saying and if that is how she believes then good for her for expressing it. I simply asked the question, how can you call yourself a constitutionalist when you are against and entire religion? The whole reason the first amendment is there is to keep the government from dictating their religion and letting people worship who they like. Are there Muslims in this country that want to destroy this nation? Absolutely. But you have to also ask, are there Muslims in this country that came here to worship in peace and who are also try to escape an oppressive regime. The answer again is yes.

    I joined this site to be a part of something and to do what I can to help protect against a growing oppressive government, not to constantly defend myself from people that are suppose to be on my side. I have been a member going on three days now and am already tired of the name calling and finger pointing. All I would like to do is hear peoples opinion and discuss the issues. I have opinions but I listen and discuss issues to refine them. I realize that not one person is right about everything and that includes me so I try and keep an open mind. It is hard to do that when you are under attack. So please from here on out please leave emotion at the door and lets actually talk about issues. Believe it or not I would like to hear what you have to say and I am on your side.
  • Hey Logan, could you interpret this please "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" I mean I not sure how this is applying to any of the conversations, if someone whats all Muslims to leave America because they feel Muslims are against their religion then they are protected in that allegation. Democrats are against my religion and I want all them to leave and go to Iran, or Afghanistan, or Pakistan, Syria, Yemen, you know just help their governments for a while and get out of America.

    Now it seems to me that "Muslims Americans" as you call them, are not being harmed, but as usual their are guys like you running around saying the sky is falling on them from the evil Americans. (No facts presented) Where is your protectionism for others beliefs, you don't seem neutral. So to imply you seek to protect the Constitution, seems questionable, and I would think you seek not to protect the constitution but, more importantly the amendments that many are beginning to question and the interpretations.
  • Logan, can you tell me the legal description of what a "Muslim America" is (your words). What hyphen are you? O and can you provide any statistical facts on this major attack on what you call Muslim Americans, in the US by I guess Americans, sounds like left wing garb to me.Or maybe a Muslim extremist!HAHAHA!!! one in the same! Um yep fact please!
  • lol, well I hope you someday read the constitution as much as you read the Quran. We need good educated people to keep "big brother" from destroying it. take care.
  • Lmao! No I am still a Christian and I love America. I am also a history major and know a bit about the constitution. The funny thing is, we both want the same thing in the courts but we differ on how to achieve it so try not to be so bitter. You lashing out at me only makes you look childish and will cause less people to take your argument seriously. It is better we stay focused on the task at hand, protecting our constitution.
  • Funny you should accuse me of not knowing any Muslims. I just moved back after living six years in Kuwait. I have many Muslim friends. I have eaten their food, slept in their houses. Some still wear the traditional dress but none of them ever treated me any different for wearing my American clothes. Many of them began wearing the same clothes I do to show that they were accepting of me. I have even drank with them. Yes it is against their religion to drink but even Muslim realize that most of what is in the Quran is out dated and should be used as a guide of good will towards men. Remember there are many things in the bible that this Christian nation does not practice, such as an eye for an eye. I know I won’t convince you of anything because you don’t want to be convinced but you must remember having a closed mind and generalizing will only create enemies instead of an understanding for others.
  • How could you be a constitutionalist and say you don’t want Muslims here. The first amendment gives everybody the right to be any religion. Most Muslims just want to live a peaceful life. Just like you can’t judge ALL of Islam from the 9-11 tragedy, you can judge all of Islam's will based off of the actions of CAIR. Does the NAACP represent all African Americans that live in the U.S.? Does the KKK represent all whites? Does the Vatican represent all Christians? It would be ignorant to judge the masses from the few.
