I should have posted this months ago to close the story. Better late, etc. Remember Oklahoma’s referendum last November (see posts here and here) banning Shariah law, sponsored by a Republican legislator and approved by 70% of voters, even though there’s no binding U.S. court decision applying Shariah law? A federal judge, as predicted, permanently barred the Shariah ban, ruling that its “primary effect inhibits religion and . . . fosters an excessive government entanglement with religion.”
The U.S. House made a big show last week of reading the U.S. Constitution aloud. Maybe if our citizens and elected officials spent less time mouthing and more time understanding application of its words, they’d promote fewer obviously unconstitutional laws.
