The rise of radical Islam around the world and here in the United States is impossible to ignore any longer. Thankfully, there are people who hold office in America that want to protect the American people.
A bill that was designed to block “the application of foreign law” in state courts advanced in the Montana House of Representatives earlier this week. The bill, of course, includes Sharia law and it has Democrats and Muslims fuming mad. Democrats are yelling that this potential law only targets Muslims and that it fuels xenophobia.
“After a lengthy debate, with Democrats and Republicans disagreeing on the intent of a Senate bill to prohibit state courts from applying foreign law, the legislation advanced in the House largely along party lines with a 56-44 vote.
Senate Bill 97, carried by Keith Regier, R-Kalispell, doesn’t specifically mention Sharia law, but it was the only kind of foreign law mentioned during testimony in both the Senate and House judiciary committees.
Sharia law is the religious governance followed by people practicing Islam. Sharia utilizes religious texts to determine divine will. Its implementation varies across the world, with Saudi Arabia adhering to strict punishments like stoning, while in other countries it is most regularly used in personal law such as marriage and divorce.
Democrats said the bill targets Muslims, while Republicans said it simply reinforces the Montana and U.S. constitutions.”
The fact that these democrats would say that this bill unfairly targets Muslims is 100% absurd, and here is why. The constitution in its perfection already protects people from religious persecution. Sharia law is the exact opposite of our values in this country and we need to protect our way of life.
There is plenty of room for all people of different background to enter America, however, they need to adhere to our laws. If they want to live under Sharia law they can go back to the Middle East and practice it there, right? I hope that this bill passes quickly and that more states follow suit.
