Federal appeals court rules sharia law is constitutional

They did right? If they ruled banning sharia law is unconstitutional then conversely they also ruled that permitting sharia law IS constitutional. Watch how quickly the non-violent jihadists exploit this ruling. via Sharia Law Ban Unconstitutional – Atlas Shrugs who sums it up:

We are screwed…

We now have groups that has ever [sic] come to this country with a ready-made model of society and government they believe to be superior to what we have here and are working to institute it.

Court Upholds Ruling Blocking Oklahoma Sharia and International Law Ban ACLU

DENVER, CO – A federal appeals court today unanimously upheld a ruling that blocked implementation of a discriminatory and unnecessary Oklahoma state constitutional amendment that would have prohibited state courts from considering what is broadly described as Islamic “Sharia law” and “international law.”

The court concluded that by singling out Islam for unfavorable treatment in state courts, the law likely violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. The court rejected the state’s argument that the constitutional amendment was necessary to protect against improper application of Sharia law, explaining:

“Appellants do not identify any actual problem the challenged amendment seeks to solve. Indeed, they admitted . . . that they did not know of even a single instance where an Oklahoma court had applied Sharia law or used the legal precepts of other nations or cultures, let alone that such applications or uses had resulted in concrete problems in Oklahoma.”

The American Civil Liberties Union and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) challenged the amendment on behalf of Muneer Awad, executive director of CAIR’s Oklahoma chapter.

“As the court recognized, this amendment did nothing more than target one faith for official condemnation,” said Daniel Mach, director of the ACLU Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief.  “Even the state admits that there has never been any problem with Oklahoma courts wrongly applying religious law. The so-called ‘Save Our State Amendment’ was a solution in search of a problem, and a blatantly discriminatory solution at that.”

“No one in Oklahoma deserves to be treated like a second-class citizen,” said Ryan Kiesel, executive director of the ACLU of Oklahoma. “This proposed amendment was an affront to the Constitution and everything it stands for.”

The proposed constitutional amendment also would have barred state courts from applying or considering “international law.”

“Attempts to paint international law as irrelevant to the American legal system are wrong-headed and dangerous,” said Chandra Bhatnagar, senior attorney with the ACLU Human Rights Program. “Preventing courts from considering international or foreign law violates our Constitution and undermines the ability of courts to interpret laws and treaties regarding global business, international human rights and even family law issues including international marriage and adoption. For U.S. global leadership to be taken seriously, courts must be able to honor international commitments consistent with our constitutional values.”

Interesting, when it comes to defense and spreading democracy leftists don’t want America to be a global leader, but when it suits them, permitting sharia law, wasting your tax dollars, they are all for it.

The Constitution is being rendered meaningless. Where are all those who swore to uphold it? Why are so many afraid to defend our way of life from sharia and Islam?

  4. Time to put the FEAR OF THE CONSTITUTION in the BUTTS OF ANY JUDGE the ACLU AND THE CAIR especially HOOPER AND AWAD OF CAIR and give them a good old RED BLOODED AMERICAN ASS KICKING. Time to take AMERICA BACK FROM THESE LIBERAL THUGS. WE did it in 1776 and it is time to do it again. LOCK AND LOAD.

    • So many caps are annoying to try & read and if you’re trying to get attention with them,you are getting the opposite result.

  6. This judge is guilty of sedition…no way is disregarding our Constitutional Laws leagal. This judge was appointed by Clinton and doesn’t even come from America. These divided loyalties must be stopped and she needed to recuse herself.

  7. The ruling needs to be appealed…again and again it must be challanged because Sharia are “cult rules” for political control of a people who are steeped in hatred.
    We are going backwards if this is allowed to stand. America will regress into looking like a backwards illiterate uneducated country dark as the dark ages.

    • No, that law is unconstitutional. It does not imply that Sharia is constitutional. American laws for American courts is much better language and has BEEN passed in other states. Tired of Gellar’s histrionics and inaccurate reporting – makes us all look like asses.

  9. I am all for passing laws to prevent sharia from spreading but after reading a different article http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/09/american_laws_for_american_courts.html by Christopher Holton
    I think there is much we can still do to fight this. Read Holton’s view and try to get similar bills started in your home state legislature. it will do more good than bitching here.
    This just indicates how serious our opposition is about winning!!!! Are we?

  10. Many things need to be done, to start pictures sent all over the net of the ACLU lawyers, the CAIR cretins and the judges that think they are better than Americans. Show everyone what traitors look like, let them feel a little reality. Then we need to push laws they can’t over turn. Then send them all back!

  11. Sharia Law directly goes against the United States Constitution and is Sedition and Treason. There is no way this should have ever happened.

  12. “All infidels in Oklahoma deserve to be treated like a second-class citizen, court finds.

    The court is a travesty of justice.

    ”Its not a faith. Its a political system. The court is wrong.

    Shariah has a gag order called blasphemy, punishable by death, women as property, assaults on women as acceptable, permits child marriages, stonings, killings, ethnic cleansing, and death to infidels.

    What part of that is a religion and is acceptable?

    In any case the decision makers are to be among the first group eliminated when Islam takes the government.

  13. Do you know why judges seemingly make favorable decisions for islam?

    Imagine as a judge you are informed that unless you rule favorably towards islam you will have a choice of having your family murderd by islam or making many millions of dollars by receiving inside tips on option buying. I believe that the blackrock companies can control the fortunes of obscure companies and cause their stock to rise or fall by great amounts. By informing the recipient to buy calls or puts on these companies with sure knowlege of the move to come. Studying the market for years i see the unusual action on obscure companies no sane investor would trade in. They suddenly rise or fall by huge amounts. Invariably the major holder of these companies are Blackrock. They can trade billions of shares to themselves from fund to fund.

  14. “Why are so many afraid to defend our way of life from sharia and Islam?”….written above

    Is it because of actual personal intimidation? Is it because of general fear? Is it because of fear of being called a name( racist, islamophobe) Is it because the “word” has come down from the White House? Is it because of naivete? Is it because these judges need to feel self-righteous, saviors who are benevolent in their decisions?

    What the hell is it?

  15. [...] Federal appeals court rules sharia law is constitutional (creepingsharia.wordpress.com) [...]

  16. The Appeals Court is wrong.
    Sharia is repugnant to the Constitution. It is anti-freedom and is NOT a “religion” by a theocratic system. We have separation of Church and State. In Islam Sharia IS the Government.
    “ANY Law that is repugnant to the Constitution is Null and Void”-Marbury v. Madison,SCOTUS *1803)

  17. How can sharia POSSIBLY be constitutional; it contravenes the constitution–are the judges completely mad? These judges remind me of the schoolboy definition of experts: (judges) “People who learn more and more, about less and less, until eventually they know almost everything about practically nothing.

  18. I’ll bet they haven’t even read the Sharia Law!

    Anyone in their right minds would know it’s the most abominable law in our universe!

    There is NOTHING civil, fair, or Constitutional about it!

    Yes, I agree, if this type action is NOT stopped & reversed,
    “We are screwed”!

    God, father of Jesus, Help Us!
    In Jesus name,
    AMEN.

    • VERY GOOD!

      Thank you very much!

      Everyone should watch that Video!

      It’s good to know that the Oklahoma law was poorly worded and was EXPECTED to NOT get approved!

      • Those who wrote it expected it to be passed but it wasn’t written by those with a full understanding of sharia or US law and how to withstand scrutiny by the mass of lawyers on the left and from the well-funded Muslim groups who are pushing aggressively for sharia law in the US.

        But so too do the judges not quite understand it if they ruled that banning sharia “law” is an infringement on freedom of religion. Banning the legal aspect does not infringe on your right to practice your religion and if it does we have some problems – underage marriage, polygamy, wife beating, rape, etc.
