    Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has signed legislation blocking courts from recognizing Islamic Sharia law... :clap2:

    Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed legislation late the week of May 25, 2012 titled “Concerning the protection of rights granted under the Constitution" which prohibits Kansas state courts from recognizing foreign laws including Islamic Sharia law.

    Gov. Sam Brownback signed a bill this week aimed at keeping Kansas courts or governmental agencies from basing decisions on Islamic or other foreign legal codes.

    The bill says courts or other tribunals can’t base rulings on any foreign legal system that wouldn’t grant rights guaranteed by the state and U.S. constitutions.

    The law won't even apply to shariah courts. Just state courts, although we need a similar rule for federal courts.

    "The unmistakable and un-American bigotry espoused by the sponsors of these bills should be repudiated by Americans of all faiths."

    Food for thought . . . .

    Of course not. American courts should no more apply religious law than they should apply Korean law or German law. Either we have American laws or we don't. No one would suggest to any degree that American courts apply Catholic ecumenical law, so why the law of the Koran?
