Oklahoma Judge Blocks Amendment That Voters Approved Banning Islamic Law When Deciding Cases.

See, you can't even vote on anything in this country anymore without someone suing. States like Oklahoma, heck all the 50 states shouldn't have to consider International or Islamic law when deciding cases IN AMERICA because we are IN AMERICA! If we were in an Islamic country, that's a different story. International law is a joke anyways. Why do we keep pandering to these people?

We need to save Democracy.

Yahoo!/AP: A federal judge has issued a temporary restraining order blocking a state constitutional amendment that prohibits state courts from considering international or Islamic law when deciding cases.

U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange ruled Monday morning in Oklahoma City following a brief hearing. It prevents the state election board from certifying the results of Tuesday's general election in which the amendment was approved by 70 percent of the voters.

The order will remain in effect until a Nov. 22 hearing on a requested preliminary injunction.

It was issued in a lawsuit filed by the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Oklahoma. Muneer Awad said during the hearing that the law stigmatizes his religion.
