    This isn't related to exercising religion.
    I may be wrong.

    you can't base a judicial decision on the Bible, the Koran, the Talmud, or the Bahgavad Gita.

    As a Florida resident I am greatly relieved by this prescient legislation. I can only hope that the follow it up with legislation prohibiting the application of the laws of space traveling aliens from other galaxies and by rejecting the appearance in court of super intelligent apes. It is of the utmost importance that our legislature spend more time debating reductive, mind-numbing solutions to non-existent problems. Bravo.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    That seems redundant as Sharia Law would be unconstitutional to begin with.

    Judges can and do use all sorts of things to help them render judgement. But that is entirely different than replacing American laws with foreign laws.

    This is simple fear mongering.
    Indeed, but P.T. Barnum had a point (there is a sucker born every minute... just watch the right for 60 seconds ).

    although this is just for domestic law, and i don't really know what judges are considering now re: sharia law.

    Florida is a **** hole dude. Anything the corrupt pandering legislature passes in that state should serve as what not to do nationally.

    I'm unfamiliar with Sharia law so I won't advocate it.

    Sharia punishments are a whole different topic though. I like the idea of neutering rapists. I also think there are a lot of other crimes where removing your body parts would be a much better alternative than prisons.

    Specklebang Akbar. It's just conversation folks....
