a reply to: intrptr Law and religion mix all the time. Why do you think we can't buy whiskey on a Sunday in Texas or why bakeries can't refuse to make cakes for gay weddings.


Yah, sadly the boundaries separating church and state are becoming blurry. Older people know what that means, younger people weren't taught it in school. Looking around, the whole anti Islam thing is deafening these days.

Hopefully, Reason will take hold and stop the real 'reasoning' behind it; conquest of the Middle East for territory and resources. What better excuse is there than the religious one, our god vs. theres?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.......and so on and so forth.


Sleep easy friend, first for there to be established Sharia Law, there would have to be a civil war or full military invasion from an Islamic country resulting in the deconstruction of the government and alphabet agencies and the Constitution then comes the Sharia law, beheadings, stoning, women in Burkas and praying multiple times a day facing Mecca.

I'm not a betting man, but I bet Aliens land and give over their anti-grav tech before Sharia law comes to destroy all things USA.

By "local courts" I mean county, city, and municipal courts of law. Just clarifying,

Just how many international laws have the Texas civil courts adopted? When did it become such a problem that they needed a law anyway? If they have such a problem with foreign law in their family courts then shouldn't they be asking their citizens why they are marrying so many foreigners.

Why do you think there's an anti Muslim movement there intrptr? Do you think it could be all the westerns heads they've cut off on hd t.v or maybe the genocide of vast ethnic groups. Or maybe that violent extremism springs out of Islam faster than rabbits can pump out bunnys. Perhaps it's the realization this religion needs a renaissance like the other major religions experienced, that they need to evolve or disappear. Surely you can find a reason other than rasict white republicans right?

And that is a myth. These are 'courts' with no legal standing. Not actual courts of law.

Yes Kali, it's institutionalized extremism and you my dear would never want to live under that rule, you should be proud that Texas takes a stance against this bull#. Btw I'm atheist/agnostic on good days, I don't favor one religion over another by bias.

You aren't grasping reality. Sharia Law can never be Legal Law in the United States.

The consequences of those decisions may be challenged in actual court if say, the 'verdict' of the private agreement is to behead someone for drawing a picture. That is a crime.

.


This law applies only to civil court matters, as was stated in the article. No mention was made of criminal law.

I'm grasping fully Kali. You haven't read my sentiment. I've said again and again even if it's moot, stating our position in law is a good thing. Its a clear f u to these people and shows where we stand! If alone for just the showmanship it still has merit in my opinion.

the likelyhood of Texas becoming sharia in anyway?
ZERO
a bunch of law makers pandering on the paranoid public purse?
!00%

the potus threatened a no fly zone and thetexas governor caved

so I call BS on this particular developement
LOL

eta
@TX
so you say IF the democratic impetus for sharia law were to arrise then that democratic development would be quashed
that appears to be a double plus worse concept then the sharia law

There is no chance of that happening. There is no way possible that Sharia law will take over America. This is something the "Christians" and the people that blindly believe the crap they put out need to learn. Anyone that understands the Constitution isn't proud of Texas but rather ashamed that such stupid people can be voted into political power when they understand nothing about the laws of this land.

Sorry, but I'm pretty sure the Bexar County Court can lock my ass up if I go breakin' some laws 'round here. So, yeah I think it has legal standing when it comes to settling divorces between Muslims. That's what this law is about.

No. Any such person that attempts to 'institutionalize' any religious dogma/doctrine should be pointed to the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution. Why is that not enough? Why doesn't that slimy law maker do that instead?

thing is though, people can agree out of court along any mutually agreed to set of rules they choose
if they go to court it will be the courts law then
which I can't see ever becoming sharia

of course for some reason in the middle east its OK to go there and dictate what laws to use

You aren't understanding. County Courts of course have legal standing. These other 'courts' that you are talking about, do not... religious bodies used within a religious community for members to use a way of settling matters that they want religious perspective on... will never stand as Legal decisions.

ETA: In other words, two Muslim neighbors that belong to the same Mosque, a Mosque that follows Sharia Law... disagree about building a fence between their properties. They go to their Imam or to their tribunal and the Imam declares that no fence shall be built, that they should be more neighborly to each other. One is happy about it, the other is not because he's tired of the neighbors dog pooping on his lawn. So he builds a fence. The other neighbor can't sue him simply because their Imam told him not to build a fence... well he can sue, but a Legal Court would dismiss the case.
