Thank you for giving us a reason why the Federal Court blocked this, that doesn't involve the non-existant persecution of christians, political correctness, or the insanely idiotic conspiracy theory that muslims are trying to implement Sharia Law on the U.S.A.

There is currently no ban on Sharia law.
There is currently no ban on Abrahamic law.
There is currently no ban on Halacha (Jewish Law)
In the United States.
Reasons why only not banning one of those is supposed to upset me?
Cherrypicked Court Cases=/=Sharia Law.

Well then get your affairs in order, under Sharia law if you refuse to be a moslem you are to be beheaded.
If you are punished under a law under Sharia and not under American law, are you libel for your actions if it took place in America?
Is Honour Killing then justified?

Guess i am just here to spoon feed people when all it takes is a 1 second google search.
A brief filed in federal court in support of the Oklahoma amendment did not assert that Sharia law had been used in Oklahoma courts. Instead, it listed one example from New Jersey.
This brings us to Cain’s mention of New Jersey during the June 13 debate. In 2009, state Superior Court Judge Joseph Charles denied a woman a restraining order after she reported her husband repeatedly beat and sexually assaulted her. She and her husband are Muslim.
Charles asked their imam during the injunction hearing how Islamic law applies to sexual behavior. The imam testified that a wife must comply with her husband’s sexual demands, but a husband was forbidden to approach his wife "like any animal."
Charles said he denied the restraining order in part because the husband’s "desire to have sex when and whether he wanted to, was something that was consistent with his practices and it was something that was not prohibited," according to the decision.
The New Jersey appeals court ruled July 23, 2010, that Charles was wrong. His decision contradicted U.S. and state Supreme Court precedent on conflicts between criminal law and religion, the ruling said.
Voters did pass an amendment to the state (Oklahoma) constitution that would prevent the use of Sharia law in state courts, but supporters found no instance where "Muslims did try to influence court decisions with Sharia law,"

Hmmm .... and you don't think that he has instructed the courts how to deal with this issue.Perhaps you are the one who lacks the ability to form coherent thoughts.

nope, an honor killing is still murder in the US, so regardless of the religion, you'll be charged. for example, here's one that happened in my neck of the woods:
Man accused of killing daughter for family honor

Wow, it never fails to amaze how "bravery" flourishes in the face of a non-existent threat. It is so east to say, "If my goldfish are ever attacked by sea horses piloting tiny nuclear submarines, those sea horses are going down hard." I'm just in awe of your bravery.
I can't help the fact that you are out of touch with reality pal, sorry
