No, it would be the “will of the people”. Chances are the money trail for this goes back to Saudi Arabia.

All of the other arguments aside, what we have here is yet another example of judicial tyranny. The will of the people have been negated by a person in a black robe, and this one happens to be a liberal, black, muslim homosexual to boot! I hope an appeal can be mounted against her ruling.

The American judiciary: just can't destroy America fast enough.

Why? It means more power for them.

People in OK never supported their neighbor, B. Clinton, but they can redeem themselves in 2016 by voting for Hillary over Jebbie.

Did Inhofe vote to confirm this judge?

Other than the court’s decision essentially being a preemptive strike against the law if there were no actual cases of somebody’s constitutional rights being abridged by the law, I don’t see what the fuss is all about. Both Christians and Muslims are protected, by Section 1 of the 14th Amendment, from state laws which go too far in abridging constitutional privileges and immunities.

What the states should have are recall laws which permit voters to remove and penalize bad-apple judges who use their power to attack a given religion.

So what am I overlooking?

There is rampant ignorance all around in that rodeo——Sharia law is not religous/religion/faith related or anything of the sort. Sharia is tribal law, or more accurately tribal custom since it always is applied the way the chief says it should be. The Soddies , for example, are great at making it up as they go. It happens that Arabs/mooslims/Persians/etc. use Sharia interchangeably but note that the largest mooslim bunch, the Indonesians, just don’t mention Sharia. Sharia is not/doesn’t have to be, an integral part of islam.

If the Okies do their homework they can get this done.

Under sharia law the judge would be home nursing her genitalia.

That judge is a moron appointment? or elected?
I have no idea what the proposed law says specifically, but a preemptive prohibition of what is clearly a feature of a foreign culture that is totally inimical and incompatible with the National Constitution and all State Constitutions cannot be "unconstitutional."

How can this anything remotely related to the "establishment clause?"

By this judge’s interpretation, the US Constitution allows for Sheria Law to supersede US law. How the hell does that work??

What little would be left of them that is....

So according to this ruling all I have to do is create my own religion with a set of parallel laws and I can have them enforced. I propose Grace-ology with a law that says all statist control freaks shall be executed.......

Dumbass idiot judge just open the door to screwball cults having their own damned courts.....

"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,"

Sharia being all constitutional and everything.

You see, if you want to live according to Christian principles, its a violation of the famous separation of church and state clause that everyone finds hidden between the lines of the constitution. But if you want to impose Sharia, thats jake.

Outlawing sharia, that violates the separation of church and state because as we understand, under sharia, the religion *is* the state.

Corruption, thy name is Democrat.
