Justice Dept. Attorney: Obama Administration May Sue States to Stop Them From Banning Sharia Law…



(RFT) — ​U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Richard Callahan visited the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis last night to address the fears and frustrations of Muslim Americans who worry they are being racially profiled and wiretapped — and to assure them that the Missouri Legislature’s attempts to ban Sharia law from being considered in state courts here could face Constitutional challenges.
Seated in front of a large Muslim audience during a town hall-style meeting at the Ballwin mosque, Callahan anchored a panel that included fellow federal attorneys (one of whom was Muslim American), as well as three members of the FBI.
“There is a worse kind of Muslim hatred recently,” said Adil Imdad, one of the event’s organizers. “Especially in the last two years, Islamophobia and fear-mongering have been spreading like wildfire, and it’s causing a lot of stress for our youth.”
The problem is now hitting a little closer to home, said Imdad, pointing to three bills currently circulating through the state legislature that seek to limit Sharia law (Islamic law) in Missouri courts. Sharia law could come into play in rulings considering child custody or prisoner rights for Muslims. As we’ve reported, the bills have become a source of controversy.
Callahan responded by hinting that, should anti-Sharia legislation get passed by the Missouri Legislature, it could be overturned by the federal courts. “The Department of Justice has a good history of challenging laws passed by state legislatures,” he said. “If some laws are passed, I think you will see challenges by the federal government on the constitutionality of them.”

Hi Pasto.
This was to be expected from Hussein,this would be off course against the First ammendment .
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion."Sharia law is Islam !

Will,

The left in general does not understand the danger in allowing sharia law to reorganized by our courts. Ironically people who normally champion the separation of Church and State, are opposing efforts to stop Islam from merging with the State out of an effort to stop "Islamophobia." These people really need to ask themselves how they'd feel if our courts started recognizing biblical, and than point out to them they absurdity of even consider the recognition of Sharia, not to mention how horribly people are treated in countries where sharia is the law of the land.

Obama said in one of his books, "If the political winds shift, I will stand with the Muslims."

Well, in one of the books he supposedly wrote.

Came across a text last week ,i wish i could remember where ,i think it was an Egyptian cleric pointing out that sharia law was
'invented' for those who deviate from the teachings of Islam,and to 'guide' them back on the right path.Implimenting Sharia in the US is the same as implimenting Islam as the official religion of the USA!

Will,

Which is a very good reason it should be opposed especially by secularists. How anyone can honestly think that the courts recognizing sharia is compatible with secularize is beyond me.
