The voters of Oklahoma passed the law. The federal judge has far overstepped her bounds.

I heard that one law had to do with limiting usary. Maybe the courts should look at the best of the Muslim Cultures ideas not the worst such as dehumanizing women and mutilating people in the name of justice. Wouldn’t it be better to have someone who steals work for that person double than cut off their hand? How many times have people made a mistake in their cry for justice.

It is apparent that the 2 previous posters are of the Islamic faith. Commanded by Allah that all will bow to Islam. The US will not become Europe, we may have civil war but we will not be Islamicized! Our first war was against Islamic terrorism who were doing what the Qur’an and Allah commanded. Our last will be the same. Someday maybe we can be moral without the idea that a particular religion is the only “right” one. Now my politicians will listen to the argument of passing similar laws.

It’s referring to the consideration of Sharia Law in the courtroom, not in one’s personal life, so no, I don’t think this amendment was designed to interfere with circumcisions or the decision whether or not to eat pork(???).Rather, the “I beat my wife because she wouldn’t sleep with me, but Sharia Law allows it” defense is off the table before it can even be presented. I commend OK for adopting such a law, and am curious why my state (IL) isn’t following suit.

This is in no way shameful or disgraceful. We the voters of Oklahoma decide the way we want to live in our Great State. Anybody coming to live here must abide by the Laws of this land. Those desiring Sharia Law have the FREEDOM to emigrate from this country and immigrate to the countries where it is currently enforced. God Bless the U.S.A.

If they wanted to ban all religious law, that would be perfectly in line with the Constitution, if a little repetitive. Only banning Islamic law is legalized bigotry, and they don’t care who knows it. Oklahoma voters should be ashamed of themselves.

There are some issues that need to be resolved however. Muslim marriages are based on a Nikah e Nama which is indirectly or directly based upon Muslim Personal Law or Shariah Law. Does the Oklahoma Law invalidate the marriages of the 15000 Muslims who live in Oklahoma.

Just like Jewish life is guided by Talmudic Laws, Muslim lives are guided by many aspects of Shariah Law. For example will the OK Law prohibit the sale of Halal meat which is similar to Kosher laws.

Jews and Muslims adhere to male circumcision. Will the OK Law ban circumcision which is loosely based on Shariah requirements. Will the OK law ban male circumcision?

Jews and Muslim have certain dietary restrictions with reference to pork. Will the OK laws force Muslims to eat pork and deny them their personal shariah law?

Muslims govern their lives by giving 2.5% of their income to local charities and the poor. Will the OK law prohibit the alms giving to local charities?

Does the OK Law ban the scarf, the mosques, the prayers, fasting, and Quran–all of which are part and parcel of Muslim personal lives governed by personal Shariah?

If the answer to the above and other questions is yes, then the law runs contrary to the US constitution and will not be able to stand a constitutional test. If it si allowed to stay, how will OK govern the lives of the 15000 Muslims?

Is a law against Talmudic Law next?
