Judge Says Courts Must Accept Shariah Influence
Investor's Business Daily
An Oklahoma constitutional amendment barring the state's courts from weighing or using Shariah law was struck down in federal court. How can a law written to protect the Constitution be unconstitutional?
Only in the parallel universe of judicial activists in which U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange resides can a law barring a particular religion's influence over court decisions be considered under the First Amendment of the Constitution as an unconstitutional establishment of competing religions.
"While the public has an interest in the will of the voters being carried out, the court finds that the public has a more profound and long-term interest in upholding an individual's constitutional rights," Miles-LaGrange wrote in her decision.
