    Texas Legislature considers banning courts from recognizing foreign religious, cultur

    Texas Legislature considers banning courts from recognizing foreign religious, cultural laws | ...

    Another idiotic right wing state. And they base this suggested law because of Newt Gingrinch it seems, who floated the lie about Dearborn, Michigan and a disorderly conduct arrest of some Christian wackos at an Arab International Fest.

    Now the cracker was this article

    Dearborn cited in effort to pass anti-Sharia law in Texas - News - Press and Guide

    Gingrich backtracked on his statement when questioned by local media and Rep. Berman himself acknowledged knowing nothing about Dearborn.

    “I heard it on a radio station here on my way in to the Capitol one day,” Berman said Monday in an interview. “I don’t know Dearborn, Michigan but I heard it (Sharia is accepted law here) on the radio. Isn’t that true?”
    So here we have a law which is based in large part on fear, fear drummed up by a lie the moron and known liar Newt Gingrich, and one of the backers of the Texas bill, a Republican of course, "heard it on the radio" hence it must be true.

    The IQ of some of the present crop of right wing politicians must be just above or around 70....

    I wonder if that includes any aspects of American law taken from English law.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    How ****ing stupid can people be? I understand some **** on the internet listening to Rush Limbaugh and taking everything as fact but a state representative?

    This has been tried before and struck down by the courts. This law, if passed, will most likely share a similar fate.

    What the hell can you even consider "foreign" in this country? We have people from literally every single race, religion, culture, or upbringing you could possibly think of.

    *sigh* Yet another right-wing fabrication that just wont die because it makes all the blog/talk radio/Fox News/email rounds and becomes Truth*

    *Truth may not actually be true

    These kind of blatantly xenophobic laws exemplify the ugliest aspect of politics.
