The TEXAS Senate Just Made a HUGE Move Against Muslim ‘Sharia Law’
From: toprightnews.com, by Jason DeWitt, on May 27, 2015, see the article HERE.
Predictably, Muslim detractors and some of their far left allies have denounced the bill as ‘Islamophobic,’ reported Shoebat.com.
State Sen. Donna Campbell (R-New Braunfels) didn’t mention Islamic Koranic law, or ‘Sharia Law’ in her bill.
She didn’t have to.
Everyone in the legislature knew perfectly well what she meant — which is why the radical Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has fought so hard to try and stop her.
Last night they utterly failed.
Her bill guarantees that no laws for ‘foreign courts’ will be adopted by Texas civil court judges.
“It’s just to provide some belt and suspenders to make sure that, with judicial discretion, we don’t trump Texas law, American law, with a foreign law regarding family law,” Campbell said.
But it has been clear for years that Muslims are determined to push their religious doctrines on the American people.
Muslim cab drivers in Minneapolis and several airports have kicked out blind passengers with guide dogs (dogs are “unclean” in Islam). Somali Muslims on welfare have demanded that their free food comply with “Islamic requirements”. Muslim groups have demanded that their women be permitted to wear full face and body-coverings, even on drivers licenses.
And Muslim pressure groups like CAIR have pushed to force Sharia Law on our courts and law enforcement — with some U.S. judges insanely agreeing to comply.
A New Jersey judge recently cited Sharia Law in refusing to grant a Muslim woman a restraining order in a horrible case of sexual assault and abuse, because her husband said his abuse was acceptable “according to his Muslim beliefs.”
And right in the heart of Texas, a group of unlicensed Muslim “judges” have set up an “Islamic Tribunal” which they say will “resolve disputes” in law, family and businesses using, of course, Sharia Law — not the U.S. Constitution.
That “tribunal” turned the tide of opinion in the Lone Star State — with a showdown in that town, Irving, providing the impetus for this state-wide bill.
As Top Right News reported, the mayor of Irving, Beth Van Duyne, made her stand against Sharia, and was viciously attacked by the New York Times, CNN and every liberal media entity in America as “Islamophobic.” But she prevailed, passing an anti-Sharia resolution to ban that Muslim tribunal from enforcing Sharia edicts in any way.
And now her fight has prevailed state-wide with the passage of this bill in the House, and Gov. Abbott’s signature America’s 2nd most populous state will be Sharia-free.
Recognizing that I don’t claim to be an expert on either Sharia Law or the Constitution, I have read enough of both to believe that they can’t peacefully co-exist. They are at odds in too many ways to count. I (we) have been fortunate to be born in the United States where the U.S. Constitution is the law of the land. The Constitution, not Sharia, is the governing law in the United States and to attempt to replace it with any other foreign law is subversive on its face.
Any Muslims who immigrate to the United States MUST adhere to our laws, just as someone moving to a Muslim country can expect to be bound by Sharia there. When Iran or Indonesia entertain the introduction of our Constitution into the operative law in their countries, I’ll consider Sharia here, otherwise abide by our Constitution or GET OUT. Sharia Law is not welcome in the United States of America, it is the very antithesis of our Constitution. Period.
