Oklahoma House Advances Legislation Banning Sharia Law
just got home and got this wonderful thing in the email!
OKLAHOMA CITY – "State lawmakers have voted to allow Oklahoma voters to prevent judicial rulings in foreign countries from impacting local court decisions through approval of the "Save Our State" constitutional amendment.
House Joint Resolution 1056, by state Rep. Rex Duncan, would allow Oklahomans to vote to amend the Oklahoma Constitution to require the courts to "uphold and adhere to the law" as provided in the United States Constitution, the Oklahoma Constitution, the United States Code and federal regulations, Oklahoma Statutes and rules, and established common law.
The proposed amendment would prohibit all Oklahoma courts from considering the legal precepts of other nations or cultures, even in cases of first impression.
"Unfortunately, some judges in other states and on the federal bench have begun to cite international law in their court decisions, effectively undermining our own democratic system of government," said Duncan, a Sand Springs Republican and attorney who chairs the House Judiciary Committee. "Our nation’s laws were developed through a democratic process and should not be undermined by haphazard reliance on foreign rulings developed in autocratic societies. Oklahoma court decisions should be based on the U.S. Constitution, Oklahoma Constitution, and our state and national laws—period."
The proposed amendment declares that courts "shall not consider international law or Sharia Law."
THANK GOODNESS OUR ENTIRE STATE LEGISLATOR IS REPUBLICAN, AND THE CITIZENS OF OKLAHOMA WILL VOTE THIS INTO LAW! AND DAMN OBAMACARE TO HELL WE ARE GOING TO FIGHT IT TO DEATH HERE IN OKLAHOMA!
