Montana progressives are trying to blockade legislation from getting passed because it would deny the absurdity that is Sharia law from being implemented into the state’s judicial system. (via Breitbart).
Senate Bill 97, introduced by (R) Keith Regier, bans the application of foreign law in Montana’s courts — specifically highlighting Sharia law. Thankfully, the bill passed 56-44, but the number of votes in opposition to this legislation is simply astonishing.
Repugnant, abhorrent, revolting, and any other vomit-inducing synonyms you can think of would not even BEGIN to describe the barbaric ideology that encompasses this widely-used Islamic law.
Democratic Rep. Shane Morigeau stated:
“I think it sends a dangerous message to minority groups both here living in our state and wanting to come visit our state, just merely on the fact that you may be different.”
Am I the only one confused here? Is Morigeau really trying to tell us that opposing Islamic laws, which COMMAND homosexuals to be crucified or mutilated, is “sending a dangerous message?” How dumb do these Democrats think we are?
It’s personally insulting as an American to have my first amendment reduced to an exploitative tool used to defend the left’s opposition to this bill. (D) Rep. Ellie Hill Smith stated:
“The courts have said that laws that single out certain religions violate the First Amendment.”
I can’t speak for every liberal constitution-circumventing judge, but I see no correlation between freedom of speech and attempting to prohibit a set of Middle Eastern laws, many of which call for torture-like punishments rivaling scenes straight from a Saw film.
Even the most “moderate” Muslims support Sharia law, and the phrase “religion of peace” is widely-used to describe the religion. They say that without any sense of irony.
Sharia law would be a horrific implementation to our court system. According to Islamic law, a woman who has been raped absolutely cannot testify in court against her rapist(s). Those are the facts — but we Republicans are just a bunch of ignorant Muslim-hating bigots, right?
This bill is attempting to preserve OUR constitution from continued liberal assault, and will now be passed to Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock for a signature or veto. I can only hope he makes the right choice.
I’m shocked when any individual tries to explain their opposition to this bill while keeping a straight face. Hey, Montana! Please get with the program and follow North Carolina, Alabama, Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, South Dakota, and Tennessee — they’ve passed bills opposing this barbaric Islamic law already. We’re counting on you.
