Federal judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange on Monday placed a temporary block on an Oklahoma amendment that bans state judges from consulting Sharia law.
U.S. Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange issued the temporary restraining order days after the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations filed a lawsuit.
CAIR alleges the amendment violates the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause that bars government bodies from making laws respecting the establishment of religion.
Last Tuesday, 70 percent of state voters passed Referendum Question 755 which states: “This measure … makes courts rely on federal and state law when deciding cases. It forbids courts from considering or using international law. It forbids courts from considering or using Sharia.
“Sharia Law is Islamic law. It is based on two principal sources, the Koran and the teaching of Mohammed.”
CAIR-OK Executive Director Muneer Awad claims in the lawsuit that the amendment singles out Islam and stigmatizes it as something foreign and to be feared.
“Surely, people will whisper, there must be something deeply threatening about Muneer’s faith. For why else would the great state of Oklahoma allocate space in the state’s most cherished document to burden Muneer’s faith and no other. There must be something hidden away commensurate to condemnation on such a grand scale.”
The practicing Muslim also argues that the creators of the ban on Sharia have disclosed its “unlawfully sectarian purpose.”
The amendment’s sponsor, former Republican state Rep. Rex Duncan expressed concern that American courts are increasingly consulting Sharia law to decide matters pertaining to the U.S. Muslim community. The newly elect district attorney called this practice “grossly inappropriate.”
Concerned that it may be an issue in the state’s future, Duncan posed, “Why wait until it’s in the courts?”
Several Christian leaders have concerns over Sharia law but believe the Oklahoma amendment is unnecessary.
“I would hate to see Sharia law as it exists in many of its common practices in places like Saudi Arabia, parts of Indonesia, Afghanistan, or even Turkey, come to America,” said J. D. Greear, pastor of Summit Church in Durham, N.C., and author of Breaking the Islam Code.
“[But] I think just to pass a blanket ban on all forms of Sharia law will be perceived as simply a slap in the face of Muslims,” he added.

It is shocking that judges in the United States of America is free consult sharia law, in lawsuits between Muslims. Followers of Islam who wants to be subject to Sharia law, should be sent back to Muslim nations.
Because Islam is a religion who seeks World dominion.If America do not put down her foot today, Sharia Laws will become a normative legal system also in the US.
American citizens should sternly oppose that there are already two set of laws in the US. One exclusively for those who are subject to “allah” and his messenger Muhammad.
Both President George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama, has bowed done before, and are “crowned” by the King of Saudi Arabia. It is therefor no surprise that the US Legal system also wants to catch up with the Islamic Kingdom, in regards to Islamic laws.
The man of lawlessness who will set Him self up on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, will also respect sharia law. It fact He will set him self above all laws, to bring all kind of legal systems subject of His powers.
Welcome to the age of syncretism, that will bring the final antichrist into the circles of absolute power.
