    They have a case because the ballot measure singles out Islamic law, rather than religious law in general.

    It's also a problem that doesn't exist. Find me one court case anywhere that has been decided based on Sharia Law.

    Those are for rules developed by the church, like adultery, AND can be used to kick out criminals. But the criminals still get to face the regular law of the land, in regular courts, and serve time in regular prisons.

    You just post on another thread about answering up to human rights review.

    Wouldn't it be restricting free practice to outlaw religious "law" in general?

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Excellent job of mixing slander with your fear and hate.

    If I want to enter into a binding arbitration with Mickey Mouse and Friends, it's my right to do so.
    I know you are saying CIVIL DISPUTES but how can we be sure that's all it would be? We have already had judges trying to inject a Muslims religion into rulings in our own courts. Can we trust Muslims not to ignore a mans beating/raping of his wife if it comes up in a civil case?
    All this tells me is that some Muslims have no desire to assimilate into our society. If they did, they would gladly give up any thought of Sharia Law. Instead, they are filing law suits against those who just want to make sure it can never be implemented in their state.

    Will you give up any sought of interjecting your Christian faith into debates about secular marriage? It was a rhetorical question. We know you won't.

    What, you mean like mainstream America used to do not so long ago?

    You know what I find myself wondering?

    How many people who think Sharia law has no place in our country (not even as contract law in a civil dispute, where it'd be legal if it wasn't called Sharia law) think that it's okay to prohibit gays from marrying, or that it's okay to think that homosexuality is immoral, based on the precepts of a religion originating in the middle east.

    How many unabashed hipocrites do you think I'd find on this very board if I went search-diving?

    Bets he'd find a whole bunch.

You know, like any other contract.

    I guess hate and fear are valid grounds upon which to ban otherwise legal contractual arrangements.

    Aside from that, I wish the proponents of this luck with the Article VI dispute which is surely coming.
    Where does this have anything to do with "contract law"?

    Liberals defend shariah law?
    Honestly i think people are so dogged by their own partisan ignorance it becomes impossible to have an honest and down to earth debate with them.
