Islamic Sharia law is one of the most insidious and oppressive systems to have ever been created by members of the human race. Sharia law calls for the killing of anyone who refuses to convert to Islam and supports many heinous acts against women.
That in and of itself should be enough to dissuade westerners from even considering the allowance of those barbaric practices within their borders, but sadly, that isn’t necessarily the case for European countries and even some liberal states in America.
But to their credit, Montana is taking steps to ensure that Sharia never gains a foothold by affirming that foreign law can never be enforced in that state.
From The Political Insider:
A bill designed to block “the application of foreign law” in state courts – including Sharia Law – advanced in the Montana House of Representatives earlier this week.
The vote for Senate Bill 97 was mostly along party lines, passing 56-44.
Republicans argued that the bill simply upheld the Constitutions of both Montana and the United States. Democrats meanwhile, argued that the bill – say it with us – targets Muslims!
The Billings Gazette reported:
After a lengthy debate, with Democrats and Republicans disagreeing on the intent of a Senate bill to prohibit state courts from applying foreign law, the legislation advanced in the House largely along party lines with a 56-44 vote.
Senate Bill 97, carried by Keith Regier, R-Kalispell, doesn’t specifically mention Sharia law, but it was the only kind of foreign law mentioned during testimony in both the Senate and House judiciary committees.
Sharia law is the religious governance followed by people practicing Islam. Sharia utilizes religious texts to determine divine will. Its implementation varies across the world, with Saudi Arabia adhering to strict punishments like stoning, while in other countries it is most regularly used in personal law such as marriage and divorce.
Democrats said the bill targets Muslims, while Republicans said it simply reinforces the Montana and U.S. constitutions.
Political Insider continued:
Conservatives across the nation have sent a powerful message against Sharia Law. A petition on Stand United has been created, demanding Congress take action against the oppressive legal system.
“As far as being determined xenophobic, that’s an insult,” Rep. Brad Tschida explained. “I’m not intolerant. This is not anti-Muslim.”
“We have allowed legal immigrants, illegal immigrants and now refugees to take advantage of our law and culture to take up their own agendas,” one resident said at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Jan. 24. “They have no intention to abide by our laws, nor are they interested in assimilating to our culture.”
America was founded upon the principles of freedom and justice, which totally eliminates the tyranny of Sharia law being allowed. As long as those principles are honored, America will continue to become the great country it was meant to be. But if the leftists dishonor those principles by abrogating Constitutional law, America may very well fall to the horrors of slavery to an oppressive religious system!
And if Liberals fear a Christian theocracy, they should be quaking in their boots at the thought of an Islamic Caliphate!
