Shariah law banned in Kansas. I read this article and was appalled by the reporting. The reporter says the law is unnecessary. Oklahoma passed a very similar law by the vote of the people, but Islamics took it to the Supreme Court and won.
So, Oklahoma now has a law that states court cannot rule according to laws outside the United States. Why is this necessary? The law singles out Islamics because of the archaic way that Sharia law treats women.
A man is allowed to beat his wife and children, and in Shariah law, a man has such a right. Look at how women are treated under Sharia law, so now, any law outside the United States is banned in Oklahoma. So Kansas may have to follow Oklahoma because Islamics are waiting to use our American court systems to push through their Shariah law as a religious preference.
I taught teenagers who were raised under Shariah law. They told me that in the case of divorce, a man need only say he wants a divorce and it is done. So I asked the young men what a woman has to do to get divorced, and they replied, "A woman? She has no rights."
Then they laughed at my stupidity for asking at which point I reminded them I was a woman and they shrank. I am still upset by their disrespect of women.
