In Obama’s God Damn America Banning Sharia Law Is NOT Okay

January 11, 2012

 

“No, no, no!  Not God bless America!  God DAMN America!” — Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s pastor and spiritual mentor for over 20 years.

For the record, Jeremiah Wright was a huge supporter of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.  Barack Obama participated in the Nation of Islam’s “Million Man March,” and Louis Farrakhan said of Obama:

“You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”

So the following really shouldn’t surprise anybody who ever had ears to hear.

A wise Attnorney General of the United States – and wouldn’t you like to go back to those days? – was quoted as saying:

“Islam is a religion in which God requires you to send your son to die for him. Christianity is a faith in which God sent his Son to die for you.”

In God damn America, you get the bad religion while the one that Jesus founded gets kicked to the curb on a daily basis.

10th Circuit: Amendment Banning Sharia Law is Not OK
By Ashby Jones

Sometimes voters get behind an idea, and we think to ourselves, why? Why are they even bothering when that idea, were it to become law, would be struck down as unconstitutional faster than we can utter “temporary restraining order?”

We smugly revisited that thought on Tuesday upon hearing that the Denver-based 10th Circuit had upheld a lower-court ruling keeping an amendment to the Oklahoma constitution from becoming law.

The amendment, overwhelmingly approved by Oklahoma voters last year, prevents judges from basing rulings on international law — and specifically mentions Islamic law, often known as Shariah law.

Specifically, the 10th Circuit upheld a lower court’s decision to preliminarily enjoin the amendment from going into effect. It ruled that there is a legitimate issue as to whether the initiative violates the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause. Click here for the ruling, penned by Judge Scott Matheson; here for the Denver Post story. Click here, here and here for earlier LB posts on the challenge.

The court ruled that, for starters, the law discriminated on the basis of religion. Furthermore, the state failed to articulate any sort of plausible justification for the law. Wrote Matheson:

Appellants do not identify any actual problem the challenged amendment seeks to solve. Indeed, they admitted at the preliminary injunction hearing that they did not know of even a single instance where an Oklahoma court had applied Sharia law or used the legal precepts of other nations or cultures, let alone that such applications or uses had resulted in concrete problems in Oklahoma.

The plaintiff in the case, Muneer Awad, the executive director for the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, sued over the law, arguing that the law denies him rights that are available to people of other religions. For instance, according to the Denver Post, Awad said his will instructs a judge to look to Islamic precepts in situations where Awad’s wishes aren’t clear. The initiative, Awad said, would prevent a judge from doing that, even though the judge could do that for people who are Christian or Jewish.

Today’s ruling means the injunction will stay in place while Awad’s lawsuit goes forward.

Meanwhile, in related sharia news….

“In the last few days alone, Boko Haram has killed at least 44 people… responsible for at least 510 killings last year alone… It has targeted churches in the past in its campaign to implement strict Shariah law across Nigeria…”

I mean, be grateful for the American court system: we don’t have to go through all that bloodshed to impose sharia; we have judges who will impose it on us!

I can just imagine a rapist creating a religion based on forcible rape and then arguing that preventing him from raping violated his religious rights.  It’s just that stupid.

It’s not just that sharia is repressive and intolerant; it is INTRINSICALLY repressive and intolerant.  And whereas Judeo-Christianity established Western Civilization and the United States of America, Islam is a hostil foreign invader.

But let’s get to another phrase I boldfaced in the article:

“overwhelmingly approved by Oklahoma voters last year, prevents judges from basing rulings on international law — and specifically mentions Islamic law, often known as Shariah law. “

I mean, it’s not like trying to make judges decide law on the basis of THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION is a good thing.  I mean, you can see why judges wouldn’t want something awful like that.

But in God damn America, “stupid” is as smart as we are capable of.

Newt Gingrich was right:

These fools need to be reigned in.  And I mean by putting bits in their jaws and yanking on them.

In God damn America, we get the leaders – and the judges to go along with it – that we deserve.

The beast is coming.

And America is going to eagerly vote for him when he comes.
