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.

 

About The Head Seminarian

I might be the nicest person you'll ever meet, but if you don't believe me, that is because I hate you. I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I came to remind you of this, not make it worse. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. If you have a bad memory, you will forget this. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
