KANSAS CITY, Kansas (Reuters) - Republican Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed a bill aimed at keeping state courts and agencies from using Islamic or other non-U.S. laws when making decisions, his office said on Friday, drawing criticism from a national Muslim group.
The law has been dubbed the "sharia bill" because critics say it targets the Islamic legal code. Sharia, or Islamic law, covers all aspects of Muslim life, including religious obligations and financial dealings. Opponents of state bans say they could nullify wills or legal contracts between Muslims.
Supporters said the law will reassure foreigners in Kansas that state laws and the U.S. Constitution would protect them. Opponents said it singled out Muslims for ridicule and was unnecessary because American laws prevail on U.S. soil....
It seems that Oklahoma had a constitutional amendment overturned that stated the same thing as this Kansas law? Anyway, it's good that the Governor of Kansas backed the actions of his state legislature, q.v., Kansas Senate Votes for Freedom. It is expected that CAIR: 'Moderate' friends of terror will try to get the law overturned in the courts.
