    Judge Blocks Oklahoma’s Ban on Using Shariah Law in Court

    HOUSTON — An Oklahoma constitutional amendment aimed at stopping the use of Islamic law in its courts was dealt a serious blow on Monday when a federal judge temporarily blocked the state from putting it into effect. The amendment would forbid state judges from considering Islamic or international law in their decisions.

    <...>

    Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange of Federal District Court in Oklahoma City, however, said in her decision to grant a preliminary injunction on Monday that the measure did not appear to pass constitutional muster.

    It conveys a message, she said, that the state favors one religion or particular belief over others. The federal courts have long held that such a message violates the First Amendment’s clause prohibiting the establishment of a state religion, she said…

    The judge barred the State Election Commission from certifying the results of the election until she makes a final ruling. She set no timetable for her decision.

    Judge Miles is a Clinton Appointment. Who spent her entire life in government or ‘academia’ (African and women’s studies).

    ...and she should re-read her own words to see the contradiction.

    Shariah Law authorizes the murder of a daughter by a father or a sister by a brother for "dishonoring" the family. I thought that murder was against the law.........hmmmmmm!
