The Pot’s Calling the Kettle Black… again

Posted on March 4, 2011


Tennessee is considering making it a felony to follow some versions of the Islamic code known as Shariah, the most severe measure yet put forth by a national movement whose members believe extremist Muslims want Shariah to supersede the Constitution

I’m pretty sure extreme Christian fundamentalists and heavily conservative individuals (esp neocons) want their beliefs to supersede our constitution.  Obviously common sense says this will not pass, freedom of religion folks.

“The legislation would clearly be unconstitutional,” he said. “Trying to separate out different parts of Islamic law for condemnation is nonsensical. Shariah law, like all religious law, is interpreted in a great many different ways.”

But it is incredibly worrisome that people even think this is okay or a plausible possibility.
