Sharia Law ban in House Thursday
by Laura Leslie
A bill banning the recognition of Islamic Sharia law in North Carolina is scheduled for a final state House vote Thursday after it won tentative approval late Wednesday night.
The measure is modeled on legislation authored by an outspoken and controversial critic of Islam.
Sponsor Rep. Chris Whitmire, R-Transylvania, said House Bill 695 would protect North Carolinians' constitutional rights in cases involving "foreign law."
