Most Americans will agree that Sharia law has no place in the United States. Yet there are Muslim groups and communities throughout the country that think differently. Thanks to President Trump’s influence, states are moving to stop them.
Sharia law puts itself above the laws of a country. Muslims who adhere to it view it above the Constitution or any other legislation. Sharia law makes women second-class citizens. It calls for the death of homosexuals. And it persecutes Christians and Jews.
Clearly it has no place in the United States. But some Muslims groups try to practice it, anyway. They’ve tried to set up their own Sharia courts. Many seek to impose Sharia rules onto communities throughout the country.
Thankfully, at least a few states are fighting back.
From The Guardian:
In 2017 there were 23 new bills introduced in 18 states attempting to prohibit the practice of Islamic religious law, or sharia, in US courts. The rash of new bills brings the total number of such legislative efforts since 2010 to 217 in 43 states, according to the Haas Institute at UC Berkeley which monitors the anti-sharia movement…
Of the 23 bills introduced to state legislatures this year, only two became law – in Arkansas and Texas. Four new states joined the growing list of legislatures where anti-sharia legislation has been attempted: Colorado, Connecticut, North Dakota and Wisconsin…
Most of the recent bills are careful not to refer overtly to sharia or Islam, as to do so would be to expose the legislation to the scrutiny of federal courts on grounds of religious discrimination. Instead, they talk of “foreign laws” being banned in US jurisdictions.
The tone of the Guardian’s article is shockingly ignorant. They call anti-sharia policy “Islamophobic” and hateful towards Muslims. They continue the tired and debunked attack against Donald Trump that he is going after Muslims. Despite the fact that he’s done no such thing.
The Guardian, like most liberal rags, refuses to acknowledge the great danger Sharia law poses. It is a set of rules that are not compatible with Western society. Muslims who embrace Sharia law want it practiced across the globe. They demand non-Muslims to bow to their rules. How could U.S. lawmakers not want to ban it?
Liberals are deliberately stupid when it comes to Sharia law. They convince themselves that any move to protect American customs and traditions is hateful. Yet they don’t bother to investigate the toxic practice they defend. Sharia law does not belong in the United States.
There are plenty of Muslims who would agree. Yet the left does not acknowledge that. Any excuse to bash the President, eh Guardian?
We need anti-Sharia laws. Why? Because it gives our government and law enforcement the power to prevent attempts to install it in our communities. Extremist groups try to impose Sharia law across America. They set up their own courts, in violation to our courts. They require their followers to abide by laws that are not in line with our own. Anti-Sharia laws empower our government with the tools to put a stop to it.
Thankfully, more states are seeing the light. Let’s hope the rest will follow.
