The Oklahoma amendment, called "Save Our State" was deemed unconstitutional because it discriminated against religions. It was actually blocked soon after its approval by dhimmi U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange because she knew he would prevail. Isn't that telling. And, although the amendment called Save Our State was aimed at banning all religious laws, the backers made the mistake of using the term 'Islamic' as an example.
"The courts shall not look to the legal precepts of other nations or cultures. Specifically, the courts shall not consider international law or Sharia law."
Because the amendment mentioned Sharia Law twice, the appeals court determined it was an attack on Muslims, so bye-bye ban. Another reason it was blocked was none of the backers were able to prove that Sharia Law (or any other international law) had been used in Oklahoma courts. Yet!
"When the law that voters wish to enact is likely unconstitutional, their interests do not outweigh Mr. Awad's in having his constitutional rights protected," the court said.
So, the so-called constitutional rights of one individual takes precedence over the will of the people, it seems. And I guess 'separation of church and state', part of that same First Amendment, means absolutely nothing. Because we can't ruffle their feathers, right?!
This court decision, sadly, will set a terrible precedent. Down the line, it will pave the way for implementation of Sharia Law in our court systems.
