Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith but to become dominate. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth” –Omar M. Ahmed, the first head of C.A.I.R. (Council of American Islamic Relations).
So, “highest authority in America” is one of the reasons Oklahoma passed State Question 755 to stop Sharia law from coming to Oklahoma courts! Other states should follow Oklahoma’s first example!
The unfortunate thing is that out of some 900,000 votes, 300,000 Oklahomans voted to allow our state to theoretically incorporate Sharia law into our court system! And that is shocking! C.A.I.R. has an active chapter in OKC.
I am fully aware that if one substitute the words, “Karan” for “Bible,” we have have heard similar rhetoric for Christian pastors. However, the difference is thus: It is indisputable that our nation was founded upon a Jedeo-Christian and Western consensus. Our laws, government, and culture are saturated by Biblical values and ethics. Most Americans appreciate this historical fact.
Islamic Sharia law is so foreign, actually, so antithetical to our laws and culture! Our laws do not justify executing homosexuals, honor killing one’s daughter for dating one of another faith, beating one’s wife for disrespect, etc, etc, etc.
Some of these sharia laws are judged as immoral or evil by even secular Americans. Therefore, if allowed equal (or any footing) with our established laws, Islamic Sharia law would posse a direct threat to our laws and our way of life. And, therefore, SQ 755 is an Oklahoma model to the nation.
