Over the past few years, Texas has been quick to take a stand against President Obama and implement the laws necessary to protect its citizens.
Now, the Texas legislature has just passed a law designed to permanent bar Muslims from instituting Sharia Law in the Lone Star State.
While State Sen. Donna Campbell doesn’t specific measure Islamic law in the bill, her measure guarantees that no laws from ‘foreign courts’ will be admissible by Texas civil court judges.
“It’s just to provide some belt and suspenders to make sure that, with judicial discretion, we don’t trump Texas law, American law, with a foreign law regarding family law,” Campbell told reporters.
Muslim groups have already criticized the bill, calling it a “solution looking for a problem.” They also argue that the bill will only perpetuate Islamophobia.
What do you think? Do you support the measure?
