A new study based on interviews with more than 200 North American Muslims over four years concludes that a recent spate of state laws banning "sharia law" from the court system may be an overreaction to a non-existent threat.
Oklahoma, Tennessee and Louisiana each passed laws or referendums to ban state judges from considering sharia and other foreign laws last year, and more than 20 other states have debated similar legislation. Newt Gingrich has called for a federal law to ban sharia, while his fellow Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has said sharia law is an "existential threat" to America.
Z: The article is rather reassuring and you might want to read the whole thing. But, here's my problem with it: Do we stop the "recent spate of state laws banning sharia law" because of this study, as the author seems to advise?
Is it an "overreaction to a non-existent threat" or do we just cover ourselves with laws to make sure it can't ever happen in our country? I'm thinking most Muslims, if their responses to the study are sincere, wouldn't mind that at all, right? Right?? :-) Yet CAIR fights each lawsuit hook, link and STINKER.
