If I'm a Muslim wife and my husband and I are having an issue, we can go to the court to settle it. Remember, some people are VERY tied to their religion and believe that it is the governing authority. Why shouldn't they have access to it?
It's not like courts are going to use Sharia Law unless the participants ASK them to. That's how it works.
It's kind of like this: If you and your wife were having a dispute and you went to a pastor to resolve it. Only you want his advice to be binding, so you appoint him your legal adviser and authority... That's really all Sharia Law in the US is. Muslims use the Sharia court to settle personal and private disputes.
Why the HELL do courts keep telling states that vote SEVENTY PERCENT to pass a law to piss-off, that their votes don't count anymore.
Read my signature. Majority Rules is NOT our way of government. There are rights that cannot be violated by laws, no matter HOW many vote for it.

kosher and halal laws will continue, regardless of
