Blending In

Maybe I’m missing something, but we do have one legal system in America, do we not? One story makes me think otherwise:

A bill that would have made Sharia law an illegal defense in South Carolina courts was narrowly defeated in the Senate Wednesday after no discussion.

Why?

The bill, sponsored by Republican Rep. Chip Limehouse, would have prevented an attorney from arguing that the laws of a client’s home country allow for certain actions.

Sharia law is the legal framework where the public and some private aspects of life are regulated under legal systems based on Islam.

Now if there’s one thing I hate, it’s making me agree with a conservative. I’m sorry; I’m not “Mr. Law and Order” but I still believe in the primacy of our native judicial system.

I must be missing something. I wish someone who is a Muslim would reach out and see my plea for clarity.
