via YIR: Muslims in Texas and all over the world are collectively up in arms, and honestly I couldn’t be happier about it.
We have reports this morning that Texas has officially passed a law that bans Sharia lawfrom existing in the state! This is a monumental win for American ideals and freedom over islam, muslims, and all they oppress and stand for.
Shoebat originally reported on this.
The Texas Senate last night passed and sent to Governor Greg Abbott a measure that would prevent any ‘international/sharia law’ from being used in Texas civil courts, a bill that Muslim detractors and some of their far left allies say is ‘Islamophobic.’
WOAI State Sen. Donna Campbell (R-New Braunfels) doesn’t mention Islamic Koranic law, or ‘Sharia Law’ in her bill. She simply says it guarantees that nolaws fro ‘foreign courts’ will be adopted by Texas civil court judges.
“It’s just to provide some belt and suspenders to make sure that, with judicial discretion, we don’t trump Texas law, American law, with a foreign law regarding family law,” Campbell said.
Essentially what this means is that Sharia Law cannot be practiced as a law in Texas.
State Sen. Kirk Watson (D-Austin) grilled Campbell on examples she has seen of foreign law being used in Texas courts.
“What foreign law are you attempting to prevent being used, and can you give examples of where it has created a problem in the state?” Watson asked.
“No foreign law,” Campbell replied. “This just provides a context for judicial discretion.”
