The state that gave us the Clintons has apparently found that they are going to stand up for what they believe in.
The House passed a bill on Monday that declares that only “American laws” will be allowed to operate in Arkansas courts.
The implication is clear: “No Sharia Law for you!”
This will now be vote do in the Senate. Hopefully this sets a precedent for all of the other states to follow in a similar fashion.
It was passed 63-24.
Arkansas Rep. Brandt Smith, a Republican from Jonesboro, sponsored the key legislation. Critics argued the bill implies Muslims. We say, guilty as charged.
“All aspects of a Muslim’s life are governed by Sharia. Sharia law comes from a combination of sources including the Qu’ran, the sayings of the prophet and the rulings of Islamic scholars,” according to the BBC’s definitive introduction to Sharia.
