    So you put up with infinite vampire-based banality for 10 seconds of titty? You are aware of the massive, massive world of free internet porn out there, right?

    No man should have to deal with that much crap for such little pleasure. Maybe this is why I'm not married.

    hmmmmm

    im not sure i understand you and im not aware of this

    I dont have any problem with any judge citing anything, any law, any religion as long as what he is citing doesnt superseded american laws.

    Is that even possible to happen without it being appealed and then it losing?

    whats the example? I definitely agree with you though american law always taks top bar there is no other way

    Sharia law has never been implemented once, not once in this country. Name one single case of Sharia law, what court, which state, when, and WHICH specific law was it. there is not a handful of judges, there is not a single one. Scary storys from the far right to keep the RWnuts stirred up.

    Just like a thread about potential attacks by a Saudi millionaire on the NYC skyline would have been laughed at before 9/11/01 even after OBL issued a declaration of war on the USA in an interview with then ABC news reporter, Jon miller in 1997, iirc.

    There is a New Jersy case where judge cites sharia law to deny a woman a restraining order,a Pennsylvanian case where a judge cites Sharia law in letting go some thugs who assaulted a man because he said something that 'offended Islam'.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I suspect you're talking about this:

    "The Sharia scaremongers often rely on a single New Jersey case, S.D. v. M.J.R., as proof that Islamic law is seeping into our court system. In it, a wife sought a restraining order against her husband, alleging that he repeatedly beat and sexually assaulted her. The judge denied her request, holding that the defendant did not form the criminal intent necessary to commit the crime, because his genuine religious beliefs dictated that he was entitled to sexual relations upon demand. The ruling was wrong—both under state law and Sharia—and, not surprisingly, the New Jersey Appellate Court reversed it in 2010." - The True Story of Sharia in American Courts | The Nation


    There are actually tons of cases involving Sharia and other forms of religious law in the US, and if we allow people the freedom to contract, it can never be any other way. There's no particular reasons to single out Sharia for special negative treatment when it's currently treated exactly the same as other sources of religious authority in the US.

    Not really like that at all, no.
