I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Last Tuesday, Florida Circuit Judge Richard Nielsen defended his decision to uphold a binding arbitration agreement, based upon Sharia Law, between ex-trustees of a local Mosque who claim to have been unfairly removed by the current leadership of that Mosque. The Islamic arbitration ruled in favor of the ex-trustees. The current leadership appealed, which is why the matter ended up before Judge Neilson:
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
Cain also claimed the mosque "is an infringement and an abuse of our freedom of religion,"
You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
Is there opportunity for abuse? Probably no more than a rich husband with an uneducated and powerless wife in any context. Am I against the courts? I suppose, but they are not a spearhead of Mooslim invasion and they have no criminal or otherwise unstipulated jurisdiction whatsoever. In its Kenyan form, Sharia Court is basically voluntary arbitration in a limited set of circumstances according to ones personal beliefs.
