North Carolina becomes 7th state to ban Muslim Sharia law

North Carolina has become the seventh state to prohibit state judges from considering Islamic law in family cases.

Gov. Pat McCrory allowed the law, which was passed by state lawmakers in July, to take effect without his signature.

North Carolina now joins Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Tennessee, according to Religion News Service, in banning Islamic Sharia law. A constitutional amendment seeking the same change in Alabama will be on the 2014 ballot. In Missouri, the governor vetoed an anti-Sharia bill.

Muslims opposed the effort because they think it is motivated by intolerance and say it could infringe on other religious groups. .
But others say measures banning the use of “foreign laws” are targeting Shariah law, not other religions.

“No one has a problem with Muslims or anyone else living peaceably in America,” the Rev. Mark Creech, said in an article published on the Christian Action League website. “But on U.S. soil, we must all embrace the freedoms and responsibilities assigned us via the Constitution, and not demand enforcement of rules and regulations left behind in other cultures.”

While some argue that the law is not necessary, the Christian Action League explained its benefits this way:

There have been more than 50 cases in 23 states in which judges have applied foreign law, depriving people of their constitutional rights. Often women and children wind up the victims when Sharia law is applied. Under the law based on the Quran and the Sunna, the teachings and writings of Mohammed, there is no age requirement for a girl to marry, and acts of adultery or prostitution can lead to sentences of death. Many Sharia law problems in the United States involve cases of women being beaten by their Muslim husbands and judges ruling that because the men were not accustomed to U.S. laws against spousal abuse, they cannot be convicted.

    I ask why America MUST bow down to the muslims. I would bet that if a Christian wanted Christian laws apply to Christians in muslim countries, they would be looked at as having holes in their heads, THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN>

    Too damned bad we can not beat some sense into those judges’ heads. The only law that should be allowed in the U. S. A. is those in the constitution. If the perpetrator can not understand American English or, heaven help us, Spanish, then he/she should not be in the United States, as a visitor or green card holder or any other status.

    Those who use evil on this planet weather it be beating and raping women or marrying children will be welcomed to hell by satan himself where they will be given the very same treatment that they dished out and their victims will be set free

    I cannot believe ther is any question in this at all. We are America. These “people” live in America. Our law is paramount. If you don’t like our laws, go back to whatever rock you crawled out from under. Obey our laws, speak English!
