Another “anti-Shariah bill” that will probably get struck down.

N.C. governor allows anti-Shariah bill to become law

By Omar Sacirbey

(RNS) North Carolina became the seventh state to prohibit its judges from considering Islamic law after Gov. Pat McCrory allowed the bill to become law without formally signing it.

McCory, a Republican, called the law “unnecessary,” but declined to veto it. The bill became law on Sunday (Aug. 25).

The state joins Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Tennessee.

Supporters hailed the bill as an important safeguard that protects the American legal system from foreign laws that are incompatible with the U.S. Constitution, while critics argued that the bill’s only purpose is to whip-up anti Muslim hatred because the Constitution already overrides foreign laws.

    article 1 section 8. Can’t go to war without votes of 51% from the congress

    And the Congress did not declare war on Vietnam, Grenada, Lebanon, Somalia, Haiti, Panama, Serbia, or Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan. But U.S. military personnel killed people in those countries. And over 60,000 U.S. military personnel have died in undeclared wars (not counting Korea and Desert Storm) since World War II.

    “Supporters hailed the bill as an important safeguard that protects the American legal system from foreign laws that are incompatible with the U.S. Constitution” – That’s BS. But even if its true, since when did they ever cared about the “U.S. Constitution”? If they cared about it they would be protesting the govt’s on foreign affairs.
