Louisiana Continues To Lead In Fight Against Sharia
by Christopher Holton
Over the past two years no state in America has done more to prevent the infiltration of Shariah law into our legal system, culture and financial system than Louisiana.
During this time period, Governor Bobby Jindal has signed into law no fewer than 6 pieces of legislation that can be classified as attempting to guard against the Islamization of America.
The flagship legislation in this regard was American Laws for American Courts legislation signed into law by Governor Jindal in 2010. Authored by Rep. Ernest Wooton and Senator Danny Martiny, that bill, signed as Act 714, declared that it is the public policy of the state of Louisiana to protect its citizens from the application of foreign laws when the application of a foreign law would result in the violation of a fundamental right guaranteed by the constitution of Louisiana or the United States, including but not limited to due process, freedom of religion, speech or press, and any right of privacy or marriage as specifically defined by the Louisiana constitution.
