Do we REALLY need to worry about Sharia Law?

The recent efforts by certain state governments to ban the use of Sharia Law in U.S. Courts is shameful. The worst thing is that their efforts may lead to judicial confusion, rather than U.S. sovereignty. An there’s a great article in the Huffington Post that breaks down some of the unneeded redundancies:

They will say they want to protect America from becoming the kind of place where women are stoned to death and religious extremists overrun our legal system. Yet the First Amendment already prohibits courts from adopting any kind of religious code as the law of the land. Last we checked, atrocities carried out in the name of religion will continue to be regarded by U.S. laws as the criminal actions that they are. No religious justification will change that.

To Oklahoma–and those wishing to follow her lead–I say enter into your deliberations with an open mind willing to see the down-side arguments against your legislation.

I am going to go one step further in guessing that those proposing such measures are professing Christians. If so, I would encourage your prayerful consideration as to whether or not this discriminatory and inflammatory legislation is necessary.
