"Creeping" Sharia Law

Isn’t so “creeping” any more…it’s here in our U.S. judicial system. The Center for Security Policy released a study that found Sharia Law was involved in court cases in 23 states. The Center evaluated 50 appellate court cases from 23 states that involve conflicts between Shariah and American state law.  The analysis finds that Shariah has been applied or formally recognized in state court decisions, in conflict with the Constitution and state public policy.
Some people have asserted with certainty that state court judges will always reject any foreign law, including Shariah law, when it conflicts with the Constitution or state public policy.  The Center’s analysis, however, found 15 trial court cases, and 12 appellate court cases, where Shariah was found to be applicable in these particular cases. The facts are the facts: some judges are making decisions deferring to Shariah law even when those decisions conflict with constitutional protections.
Key findings from the study:

  • At the trial court level, 22 decisions were found that refused to apply Shariah; 15 were found to have utilized or recognized Shariah; 9 were indeterminate; and in 4 cases Shariah was not applicable to the decision at this level, but was applicable at the appellate level.
  • At the appellate Court level: 23 decisions were found that refused to apply Shariah; 12 were found to have utilized or recognized Shariah; 8 were indeterminate; and in 7 cases Shariah was not applicable to the decision, but had been applicable at the trial court level.
  • The 50 cases were classified into seven distinct “Categories” of dispute:  21 cases dealt with “Shariah Marriage Law”; 17 cases involved “Child Custody”; 5 dealt with “Shariah Contract Law”; 3 dealt with general “Shariah Doctrine”; 2 were concerned with “Shariah Property Law”; 1 dealt with “Due Process/Equal Protection” and 1 dealt with the combined “Shariah Marriage Law/Child Custody.

This is just unbelievable that Sharia is now in our courts. Time to wake up America!

Sharia– “it’s part of their culture,” for spineless left/liberal dhimmis. Our courts, our law. Period. (Quislings… er, leftards, are the ones who gave back Elian Gonzales, too.)

LOL @ the graphic up there “Welcome to 9th century”.
Okay, to the topic…On one side you all talk about Liberalism and on the other you go against your own ideas and logic?
If we want to go with it, what wrong does it do to you? O.O’
Oh and I’m ready for criticism, you’d have already guessed my religion by my name hovering on top.

just wanted to say, as much as it pains me, i must agree with ‘anonymous’ to some extent… Islamically, you cannot act upon the sharia law in a country that doesn’t follow it. it was wrong for the USA, and highly unprofessional, if this is true, to use the sharia law in their courts. if you bother to understand the concepts of the sharia law you’d understand that you can’t use it in any country you want. and it is most certainly forbidden for an individual to act upon it whenever they feel like it, especially without any knowledge. you… Read more »
