    Oklahoma Ballot Question Would Ban Sharia Law

    Now we have to worry about Sharia Law in America?

    I don't even think the Muslim Loving Liberals in this forum can defend
    this crap.


    Abount 25 years ago, A women knocked on my door and asked to use
    the phone to call the police on her husband. After she called the police
    she left my home and walked outside to wait for the police.
    Her husband came across the street and hit the women
    in the face in my front yard. I came outside and got into a screaming
    match with the man. He told me he was from Jordan.
    He pushed me and I smacked him a couple times
    until he fell on the ground. It was no major win, as I had 6 inches and
    75 pounds on the man.

    The police arrived and asked what happened. The man told the
    police that I hit him and his wife defended him and turned on me.
    She said that I had hit her husband.

    Lucky for me a neighbor had seen the brief spat and came across
    the street and told the police what happened.

    With the world of the neighbor and the fact that the women had
    already reported abuse on the phone, they arrested the man.

    I never seen either of them again, they moved.
    If the women ever knocked on the door again, she would have only
    been greated by my German Shepard Rex.

    No religious beliefs should supercede the law.

    I don't think even the bible thumpers on the right here can disagree with that...

    One example of nutty judge is no reason for a state to have a nutty law. There is zero danger of Sharia law superceding our Constitution. This initiative was pure political hubris by some paranoid right-wingers. Indeed, liberals are even less likely than conservatives to defend Sharia law because we tend to be less sexist, less homophobic, and less prone towards vengeance.

    The source for your information is some half baked Jesus site.. do you think that they might lie or use hyperbole to make their point??

    OTOH religious law does not supercede local, state or federal law... unless it is for some convenient reason for the right.. situational constitution stuff.

    America should take a long hard look at The UK & France and never allow this religion "Islamic" to grow in America as it has overseas.

    WTF is wrong with England? How could any country that calls itself part of the "modern world" would allow "Sharia" anything within the borders of their country.

    Thankfully, we as a nation and a people would never, EVER allow scum-bag sharia courts to operate in the United States of America...that much I can guarantee!

    Has the world gone nuts or what?

    Flex, do you actually READ my posts or just post a response to what you "think" I wrote?

    I wrote NOTHING about

    "this an example of sharia law being imposed here"

    I just said Sharia Law is for scum-bags...nothing more, nothing less.

    Anything that stops the tide of liberal-supported Pro-Islam advances is a good thing.

    I'm not a liberal but out of curiosity could you come up with a few of these pro-islamic advances? I want to see them for myself.

    Two liberal "whack jobs" walked off a TV Show because a guest said "The people that killed 3000 Americans on 9/11 were Muslims"

    Now think about this "THEY WERE MUSLIMS"

    The pro islamic advance is quite obvious, "if a muslim does something lets make believe they aren't muslims"

    shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    We're a Christian nation! There's a war on Christmas! Just today somebody wished me Happy Holidays, he was probably a Muzling librul.

    Yes, Joy Behar's actions clearly signify dramatic "pro-Islamic advances" that should worry us all.

    Since you think some people pretend others aren't Muslims, I'll ask you, who cares if they're Muslims?

    The comments you and some others here make about Muslims would never fly if they were made about Jews or Catholics. And yet you continually whine about any perceived slight to Christians in our nation.

    Equality before the law is one of the main columns in the foundation of our republic.

    The fact that they were Muslim is relevant because the perpetrators point to their Islamic faith as their main motivation. It is not Bill O'Reilly that you need to convince that terrorism is incompatible with Islam, but Osama bin Laden.

    I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be convincing O'Reilly or bin Laden of anything.

    But why do you care what some nutjob points to as his motivation for committing an inexcusable act? What happened to individual responsibility?

    Whenever somebody criticizes a religion, or religion in general, I hear people say that most of the criticisms leveled should be aimed at the individuals acting in the name of religion, not the religion itself. And while I'm not religious, I usually agree with that response. If you don't, that's fine -- there's a reasonable argument on either side, imo. But if you do, why does that concept get thrown out the window when it comes to Islam versus its extremists?

    Because that nutjob didn't dream up the ideology that drives him and the rest of al-Qaeda. That ideology needs to confronted, not dismissed.

    Which ideology drives al Qaeda? Islam in general, Islam extremism, "hatred of our freedoms," hatred of our meddling?

    Depending on where you come out on that, I could probably say the same about extremists of any religion who misguidedly act in that religion's name.

    Should Christianity be condemned because of as*holes like Eric Rudolph?
