Combine their median income and cost of living and they're pretty much average for the country, with one of the fastest growing economies.

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.
Our laws are not based on the ten commandments or anything remotely religions. We are not nor have we ever been a country founded on Judeo-Christianity. Did you not get the memo.

Our laws aren't based upon the Qu'ran either, but that didn't stop Oklahoma from banning it.

What muslims in islamic countries WOULD LOVE is the U.S. govt to stop bombing and killing innocent people in the "name of freedom" just so that they can continue to fill their greedy coffers.

I guess all the FoxNewsTards that posted on here after my post FAILED TO READ MY POST which clearly stated that in Islam it is COMMANDED by SHARIAH that a MUSLIM follows the LAWS of the COUNTRY IN WHICH THEY ABIDE so long as those laws don't make the muslim do anti-islamic practices. AND IN THAT CASE, THE QUR'AN COMMANDS (ALAS SHARIAH) THE MUSLIM TO MOVE TO A COUNTRY WHERE THEY ARE NOT FORCED TO PRACTICE UNISLAMIC PRACTICES. That is Shariah. What can't you Uneducated Ignorant Rednecks not get about that??

GEEZ LUIZ, For the love of God, please stop watching your brainnumbing news programs. Turn of the TV and go outside and go meet some local muslims and ask them about Shariah and who they are and what they want for this country. You might be surprised that it is nothing like what the propagandatalking heads on Fox have to say about it.
I know very little about Shariah Law, other than the misogynist aspects, and honor killings. Would you mind sharing a few examples of un-Islamic practices?

AMAZING.
CAIR sues any anything that impedes their path to Islamify the US judiciary system the way they have been able to do in Britain. No surprise there, nor was the lawsuit. Cair is tied to the terrorist organization The Muslim Brotherhood and has a seat at the highest levels of our government. They must be fought at every opportunity from gaining ground in our jusdicial system or we will see what has happned in Britian happen in the USA.

stillkit, how about some intellectual honesty, please? Do you think you can do that?

It was Sharia Law that was banned from consideration in the Oklahoma courts in place of current law, not the Qu'ran. One law for all; not many laws depending upon one's religion. How do you see a problem with this? Seriously? Even the aethist Richard Dawkins in Britian understand how Sharia Law hus undermined the courts in Britain.

Which 10 commandment similar laws would you have stricken? Would you make it legal to murder and to steal? Really? Because that is all I even see remotely related to the 10 commandments. I think most nations outlaw those activities.

Oklahoma is prospering in large part because the entire state is more or less on federal welfare. It is easy to present the facade of success when you get 1.36 for every dollar you pay out.

So Oklahoma bans sharia law and San Francisco bans McDonalds happy meals. I wonder if Stephen Colbert had any stupid snarky comments to make about San Francisco.
Sharia may not be here yet, but with an ever increasing Muslim population immigrating to the US, there will be demands for it.

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?
Our laws are being used against us in order to get what they want.
