Of course, she’s a liberal. They’re the only kind of people that would do this out of “Political Correctness”. Recently, Oklahoma (one of the reddest states in the country) passed a new amendment to its Constitution stating that Sharia law (Islamic Law) cannot be used in any way in their courts. Sounds good to me. Only American laws should be applied in American courts.
Now, this judge,Vicki Miles-LaGrange, takes it upon herself to toss this into the trash. According to the Tulsa World:
An Oklahoma constitutional amendment that would bar the state’s courts from considering or using Sharia law was ruled unconstitutional Thursday by a federal judge in Oklahoma City.
In finding the law in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Establishment Clause, U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange issued a permanent injunction prohibiting the certification of the results of the state question that put the Sharia law ban into the state constitution.
“While the public has an interest in the will of the voters being carried out, the Court finds that the public has a more profound and long-term interest in upholding an individual’s constitutional rights,” the judge wrote.
Now, nit-picking this isn’t even necessary. The judge ultimately gives herself the mindset of a person who knows what’s best for everyone. The judge thinks this is violating someone’s rights; but in reality (and not her liberal, nannyist fantasy land), this was meant to protect people’s rights.
Sharia law should not and cannot be used in this land. Our laws are so much different from Sharia. Accepting Sharia law in our courts, US courts, just to please a few Muslims so they can manipulate America into what they envision, is a dangerous thing. Judges are idiots when they consider someone else’s law, especially when it’s not the law of this land.
You can call me a bigot and an islamophobic idiot all you want; but when you start seeing Sharia Law used in our courts more and more often (as if the courts weren’t abused enough), you’ll start whining about the unfairness of it. They won’t care by then. Their transformation of America will be too far along to easily stop it. And they won’t care about it’s “unfairness.”
Just look at all the Islamic countries in the Middle East. Do they care about minority rights? Do they care about what they do to people of another religion? NO! That’s why you see Muslims burning churches in other Islamic countries. That’s why you see Muslims angry when people don’t abide by Sharia Law. That’s why gays are lynched in many of those countries, too. If you’re a pro-homosexuality kind of person, go to Iran or Saudi Arabia and see how long you last. I doubt it’ll be long when you start talking.
I don’t know what this judge was thinking; but in doing this, she opened the door for more court abuse the state of Oklahoma doesn’t need. Oklahoma is still trying to recover from that devastating tornado months ago. They don’t need someone to come to their state and force laws from another country onto them. That’s not what they need. I read this judge’s wiki page, and there was a state senator calling for her impeachment. I fully support you in your endeavors, you brave Senator; and I wish you good luck.
