Montana Dems Want…Sharia? What In the World?
No, this is not an April Fool story. Yesterday all the Democrats in the Montana state legislature voted against a bill to ban Muslim sharia law in their state:
Democrats in Montana have voted against a new state measure that would ban the use of Sharia law and other foreign laws in state courts, even calling the proposal “repugnant.”
“I think it sends a dangerous message to minority groups both here living in our state and wanting to come visit our state, just merely on the fact that you may be different,” said Rep. Shane Morigeau, D-Missoula, while debating the legislation. “I truly believe this law is repugnant. I believe this is not who we are as Montanans.”
Senate Bill 97 bans the use of foreign law in Montana courts, but the focus of the legislation was on Sharia.
The bill ended up passing on party lines 56-44. It now goes to the desk of Democratic governor Steve Bullock.
All the Republicans voted for it, so the bill passed, 56-44. But now it will go to Montana’s governor, another Democrat. I will be amazed if he signs it.
A nut-case in the legislature said any measure banning the use of foreign legal systems in Montana would send a “dangerous message to minority groups.”
What? You mean competing legal systems would be a cool thing to have in your state? Including the Muslim system that calls for oppressing women and putting homosexuals to death? Do Democrats really, truly, think that would be a good idea?
I guess they do. Which means they’re crazy. Sure, let’s have a nice hefty dose of sharia in our state! That ought to lead to some really interesting jurisdictional squabbles. Along with some deaths.
The sooner this insane political party gets put out of business forever, the better. Because now they’re not only a perpetual annoyance, but a threat to public safety.
