Kansas Governor signs anti-sharia bill into law

The bill did not specifically ban the use of sharia law, it bans the use of foreign law that contravenes the rights guaranteed in the Constitution.  Even with that, we know that Islam will have their panties in a bunch over this, and will try their darndest to get it overturned.  But for now, lets toast the common sense and wisdom of Gov. Brownback.

Here's to you, sir.

Governor Signs Bill Blocking Use Of Islamic Law

Gov. Sam Brownback has signed into law a bill aimed at keeping Kansas courts or government agencies from basing decisions on Islamic or other foreign legal codes.

Brownback's office notified the Senate of his action Friday, but
he actually signed the measure Monday. The new law will take effect
in July.

Muslim groups had urged him to veto the measure, arguing it
promotes discrimination. Supporters say it simply restates American

Supporters have worried about Shariah law being applied in
Kansas courts. However, they also point out that the bill doesn't
specifically mention codes within the Islamic legal system.

Instead, it says courts or other tribunals can't base rulings on
any foreign law or legal system that would not grant rights
guaranteed by state and U.S. constitutions.
