Sharia law – which state just moved toward banning it?
Sharia law- which state just moved toward banning it?
After years of debating the issue, South Carolina’s House of Representatives passed a bill on Thursday to ban Sharia law. The issue passed the House 68-42.
“A bill to amend the code of laws of South Carolina … so as to prevent a court or other enforcement authority from enforcing foreign law including, but not limited to, Sharia Law in this state from a forum outside of the United States or its territories under certain circumstances.”
Stop Sharia law now
The bill must now pass the SC Senate and be signed by Governor Nikki Haley. None of that is an easy process for politicians seeking votes in an election year and with CAIR screaming “Islamophobia” in their ears.
The sponsor of the bill, Chip Limehouse, told Breitbart,
“This goes to demonstrate that the South Carolina House of Representatives is committed to preserving and protecting the American way of life here in South Carolina.
Sharia Law has been used as a defense in American courtrooms…We are working towards making that defense not an option for radical extremists from any country.
In South Carolina, we’ve had cases where people have tried to use [the rules of] Sharia Law as a defense, and we are speaking very clearly from the South Carolina House…Shariah Law can not and will not be used as a legal defense in the state of South Carolina.”
Will American ban Sharia? And what is it?
Sharia is the law to which all Muslims must adhere.
Understanding the Threat wrote,
Women are “lesser” beings under Sharia, and are continually under the heavy-handed “authority” of men. They can be mistreated- abused- or even murdered in “honor killings.”
Muslims are not supposed to have non-Muslim friends. (Qu’ran 5:51). And by abrogation, Muslims are to obey this little gem: “Fight and slay the unbeliever wherever you find them, capture and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush (strategem of war).” Qu’ran 9:5
Any use of this repressive, backward system as a basis for defense in America should be destroyed. In Europe, where many countries have allowed Sharia courts to creep into their society, it has created “no-go zones” and an entire system of vicious underground life. Even Texas had a Sharia court in their state and had to move to stop it.
The following states have been moving toward banning Sharia. Let’s hope we get more than just 16 for 2016.
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
