    Nice fallacy of raising the bar there. Glad to see you still have no concept of the word "honesty."

    Wrong as usual and completely unwilling to admit it. Typical.

    Simon W. Moon addressed your totally bat**** argument regarding Sharia

    Is there a treaty authorizing the implementation of Sharia Law? There isn't, huh?

    So, how do you feel about that Muslim cat sueing, because he wants Sharia Law to be used in American courts?
    Go for it. Problem is that COTUS explicitly forbids that. Way to fail with flying colors there.

    I do enjoy watching you argue that we should explicitly forbid US courts from applying US law.

    So I was right to question Adpst's understanding of precedent.

    What do you suppose "use" means in this instance?
    I may be wrong.

    Re: Voters ban judges from using international law

    I might be drawing some incorrect inferences here, but it seems to me that some believe the New Jersey trial judge cited Sharia law as authoritative. I disagree. His only (misguided) purpose in referencing Sharia law was to make a factual finding: did the ex-husband intend to commit rape? He found no intent as Sharia permits husbands unqualified "access" to their wives.

    That said, this judge needs a thorough review and may even need to retake the bar exam. No consent = rape. This nonsense is what occurs when folks blur the lines too much. Ultimately, everyone's circumstance becomes "special" and thusly, they are not held accountable.

    Furthermore, why re-legislate that which is already on the books? I'm no constitutional law expert, but my guess is that this amendment to the Oklahoma Constitution gets struck down. Like Justice Stewart said about pornography, "I know it when I see it."
