The right-wing paranoia and hubris that resulted in a state constitutional amendment outlawing Sharia law in Oklahoma (perhaps a real danger when you consider how racist, homophobic, and sexist Oklahoma is, at least historically), may have also resulted in outlawing the 10 Commandments. Obviously, for a state like Oklahoma to outlaw Sharia was simply a statement of bigotry directed at Muslims, since there's zero danger of Sharia law in any state, let alone Oklahoma. Oklahoma voters may have accidentally outlawed the 10 Commandments - National populist | Examiner.com Lawmakers in the Sooner State put a constitutional amendment banning the application of Islamic law by Oklahoma courts on the ballot for Tuesday's election. But the amendment, which also banned the use of international law in judicial decision-making, might force Oklahoma judges to ignore all laws that were conceived on foreign soil, including the 10 Commandments. "I would like to see Oklahoma politicians explain if this means that the courts can no longer consider the Ten Commandments. Isn't that a precept of another culture and another nation?" said a University of Oklahoma law professor. "The result of this is that judges aren't going to know when and how they can look at sources of American law that were international law in origin. Many of us who understand the law are scratching our heads this morning, laughing so we don't cry."
