Today we see clear vilolations againsgt our own constitution by the very people who swore their oath of office, to uphold the exact rights of people - that they now persecute with unwarranted hatred.

How can these states (listed below) even entertain the thought of making state laws against the Constitution of the United States of America? AGAINST GOD'S LAWS?

- Article: Bans on Court Use of Shari'ah International Law

What to watch for - Law & Court Decisions of Other Nations; Specifically Prohibiting Use of Foreign Law (read: Shari'ah)

This year’s batch of bans of sharia/international law use by state courts looks very different than those of the past several years.

After criticism that:

a) past versions would effectively cripple businesses who have to sign international contracts

b) that bans on references to the law and court decisions of other nations would make the judicial determinations of tribal courts in the U.S. enforceable, most such bills have been completely rewritten.

Specifically, most now specify the prohibition on the use of 'foreign law' (shari'ah, Torah, Gospel, etc.)

    • applies only to a particular case type (such as family law or domestic relations)
    • does not infringe on the right to contract
      does not apply to not apply to a corporation, partnership, limited liability company, etc.
      does not apply to recognition or use of tribal court decisions in state courts
      does not apply to ecclesiastical matters within a denomination

Even with these modifications, as in the past, most such bills are failing to advance in the legislatures.

does banning God's law include swearing on the bible?
