I think I'll get one of my friends up in Oklahoma to propose a Constitutional amendment which bars basing any laws on the Ten Commandments.

Don't laugh. If laws based upon one religion can be curtailed, so can laws based upon any religion.

See? This is what the fundamentalist's never consider (And, I am one; a real, authentic Hard-Shelled Baptist) because they don't know or understand the Constitution and it's provisions for equality before the law. Just as in the issue of public prayer, they don't understand that if one religion can be banned or receive special favors under the law, so can others.

Ironically.... the fact that we don't have it, is the very reason you are able to leave here "freely" and back to where you came from. Go get allllll the Sharia you want. Quit b@#tchin' about it not being here!

Isn't that they are suing proof that they intend to try to establish shariah?

Wouldn't it have been better to say "Though we dislike this law, we never had any ideas of establishing sharia here, and this law is about creating fear, but in reality it bans nothing" ??

Instead theywant it overturned. What does that say?

Maybe it says they have an appreciation for the Constitution which many here don't seem to have.

That the law is arbitrary at best and overreaching in its scope at worst? Like it's been said in this very thread before, Shariah law encompasses more than what the garden variety Muslim bashers trot out.

I say an ounce of prevention... I'll bet England and France wish they'd had Oklahoma's cajones.

And there we have it, it's crazy to pass a law against something that doesn't exist BUT it's fine for CARE to sue a state for passing a law against something that doesn't exist.
