Kansas Standing Up for USA Constitution!!

Republican Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed a bill aimed at keeping
state courts and agencies from using Islamic or other non-U.S. laws when
making decisions, his office said on Friday.

The law has been dubbed the "sharia bill" because critics say it
targets the Islamic legal code. Sharia, or Islamic law, covers all
aspects of Muslim life, including religious obligations and financial
dealings. Opponents of state bans say they could nullify wills or legal
contracts between Muslims.

Supporters said the law will reassure foreigners in Kansas that state
laws and the U.S. Constitution would protect them. Opponents said it
singled out Muslims for ridicule and was unnecessary because American
laws prevail on U.S. soil.

    At last common sense prevails! Let's hope many other states follow suit.

    You would think...
  • elijahin24 Andy 2012/05/28 04:04:52
    I do think. In fact I know.
  • Andy elijahin24 2012/05/29 02:45:20
    You know it should... but, it seems that there are some that are trying to white-wash the US Constitution!!
  • elijahin24 Andy 2012/05/29 03:40:45
    They aren't trying to white-wash Islam into it. Nobody is trying to do that. Quit fighting dragons. They aren't real.
  • Andy elijahin24 2012/05/29 15:17:11
    And you know this how???
  • elijahin24 Andy 2012/05/29 19:56:02
    um...because they're a myth.
  • Andy elijahin24 2012/05/30 18:43:06
    And you know this how??
  • elijahin24 Andy 2012/05/30 20:27:19
    OK, fine. I can't prove that there are no dragons. But there is absolutely no evidence of their existance. Just like unicorns, pixies (not the band) and gods.
  • Andy elijahin24 2012/05/31 03:51:35
    How do you disprove GOD?? This world was created somehow... a Supreme Being, FAR MORE intelligent then you and me...That gets my vote...try to talk me out of this one!!
  • elijahin24 Andy 2012/05/31 12:31:08
    I don't want to talk you out of it. You're entitled to your opinion. I can't disprove God, which is not surprising. I can't disprove any mythical being. We might have had unicorns, and inubuses, and flying monkeys. We might have hobits and dragons and ice-giants. All of the gods and titans may have been real too. But in the absence of ANY evidence that they did exist, I assume that they did not. Same is true of your god. We don't generally assume that something existed, even though there is no evidence that it did. In fact, I honestly can't think of anything we believe in without some evidence that it's real, except God.
    So you may feel free to believe. But the above explains why I don't. I don't believe the world was created. I believe that in one form or another, it always existed, but was shaped by infinite time floating around the universe, until it was caught in the orbit of a small yellow star, which we know as the sun. I find that much more plausible than the idea that a perfect, all-powerful, all-knowing being created it. And if he did, as George Carlin said: I am not impressed. Earthquakes, famine, disease, war, strife, hurricanes, and tornados; this is pretty shoddy craftsmanship. Quoting Carlin again "this is the work of an office temp with a bad attitude".

    You too are availed your opinion... but, I will ask one last question... How did this child come into being??? baby
  • elijahin24 Andy 2012/06/01 13:22:58
    A man and a woman had sex. The sperm of the man, fertilized the egg of the woman, thus forming inside of the egg: a zygote. That zygote grew and developed into a fetus. The fetus developed human characteristics such as fingers, eyes, and a digestive track (which would later become the bain of his parents existance).
    After a little over 9 months, the fetus had grown to a point that the woman could no longer keep it inside of her, and her reproductive system caused the muscles inside of her womb to contract, thus pushing the fetus out of her vagina, at which point, the fetus graduates to the title of "baby".
    This is fun. Shall we try a reptile next, or a bird?
  • Andy elijahin24 2012/06/01 15:02:09
    So where do the sperm and egg come from?? A higher power than you and I!! You can't argue that away...human, reptile, bird... all the same...GOD CREATED!!
  • elijahin24 Andy 2012/06/01 15:08:17
    By this logic, let me ask you something: Where did God come from?
  • Andy elijahin24 2012/06/01 15:17:38
    God has always existed!!

    In the beginning...GOD!!

    Grandstanding is what I would call it. First create a controversy and then ride in to save the day. Nonsense and hyperbole. As if islamic law had a chance in hell of being adopted in the USA
  • Andy gocar 2012/05/28 00:32:01
    Like the immigration laws of Arizona... statement to the FEDERAL Government, to do its job!!

    What people don't realize is that there are already groups of Muslims here in the USA that want to impose their crazy sharia law, and if obama nation wins again it will be a reality in the USA!

    Too many shots at the Constitution already... 1 and 2 ammendments are already in the scope sights of the White House!!
  • elijahin24 Andy 2012/05/28 04:04:30
    Please show me some evidence of this.
  • jdemme 2012/05/26 23:32:37
    Muslims should be allowed to be governed by their laws
    Just like Christians...

    Nah, not really. But this bill is completely unnecessary, since US laws trump any and all Muslim "laws" just like the do with any other religion.
  • Andy jdemme 2012/05/28 00:37:47
    While it trumps Muslim Law... Sharia Law still is creeping into the framework of the USA!!
  • jdemme Andy 2012/05/28 01:12:58
    Care to show me where?

    It seems like Sharia law has been working its way OUT of US laws, considering Women couldn't even vote in the US until 1920...

    This is America and everyone should abide by and be protected by our laws.

    As for the critics of the bill who think "it singled out Muslims for ridicule and was unnecessary because American laws prevail on U.S. soil."... all I can say is you missed a BIG Sharia law for Muslims rally in Connecticut.

    Political stunt of no consequence, except possibly making idiots who don't know any better feel better.
  • Andy YouSirName 2012/05/26 22:23:10
    Or sending a message to Washington DC...that seems to let other issues go unpunished...mainly, border protection in Arizona!!
  • YouSirName Andy 2012/05/26 22:36:35
    Sorry, but wasting time on political stunts that have NO effect is part of what is wrong with politics at all levels. No one is using Sharia law in courts in the U.S.

  • elijahin24 Lady Wh... 2012/05/27 17:29:51
    How? Sharia can't be used in the USA anyway, because of the First Amendment. This is nothing but a waste of tax-dollars and time, to pass a redundant law which demonizes American Muslims; most of whom don't support Sharia law anyway.

    One question: if we make exception for Islam, then we must make exceptions for all other religions/cults/isms. We are a nation of laws and everyone, no exception, are subject to them. If a certain group feels that they should be exempted, then that group has no intention of assimilating into the U.S. culture. More to the point, they feel that everyone else should assimilate to their culture. If there are two sets of laws, Islamic and other, then honor killings would not be murder, wife beating would not be illegal, and neither would polygamy (only if you are Muslim though). All people here should know what the nation's principles and laws are and if we get into the habit of making exceptions to the law, then we have no law, just chaos and anarchy.

    I sincerely hope that other states follow suit.

    U.S. law should always prevail in the U.S.
  • relic 2012/05/26 18:03:31

    Muslims should be thrown out of the United States and Islam banned. It is NOT a religion, it's a murderous cult.
