Might as well get the conversation rolling. It's bound to be a issue sooner or later.
Don't see how it would be constitutional.
We punish people for actions (or should), not what they choose to believe.
They can believe in Sharia all they want. But when the practice of it breaks an existing law THEN it should be a criminal offense. Not before. And then it would fall under existing laws anyway....so there is no need for this one.
I'm confused, what parts of sharia law don't jibe with our laws? Killing, stealing, and fraud, along with all the variations, are crimes in both aren't they? We use leathal injection, and the electric chair, and they use stoninng and beheading. If these people want to practice sharia law amongst themselves, and as long as it doesn't break any local, federal, or state law, just what exactly is the problem? We must live up to the ideals we set for ourselves by choosing to be American citizens.
It would be best if we didn't allow fathers to behead their daughters because they want to buy a pair of blue jeans... or chop their sons hand of because he whacking his wiener.
It's bad enough we allow Muslims and their death colt religion in America we sure the hell don't need their laws here too!
Obama is going to sue Tennessee
Yep. I don't see this kind of bill being upheld in the courts, if it even get enacted into law first... if it even makes it out of committee. Just more vote pandering, imao.
Vigilante justice is already illegal.
edit: Therefore anybody who enforces Sharia law is already breaking our law by taking the law into their own hands.
All Muslims want us dead so they can take our land and turn it into one big gay bath house!
