Rock On Texas! State Senate Passes Anti “Sharia Law” Bill — Could It Be A Trend?

In Texas Sharia law is now being called an anti-Sharia law. Liberals and Muslims are ‘outraged’ by the Senate passed law.

According to Conservative Post, Senator Campbell said, “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.”

Texas House Bill 562 is meant to keep foreign laws pertaining to things such as parental rights and marital rights out of the American court systems.

There are those who feel this is nothing but a guise to promote Islamophobia, but there has been no merit to this claim as of yet and the bill will now head over to the desk of Republican Gov. Greg Abbott.

The fight will be on you can be assured as the Senate is not unanimously pleased with Campbell’s bill.

“What foreign law are you attempting to prevent being used, and can you give examples of where it has created a problem in the state?”

“No foreign law,” was Campbell’s response. “This just provides a contest for judicial discretion.”

Texas is not alone in their Sharian Law battle. If the bill is signed into law, it would make Texas the 10th state to enact similar laws. Florida, Alabama, Washington, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Kansan, Arizona, Louisiana, and Tennessee have similar statutes.

Arguing that it could create ‘legal uncertainty,’ the American Bar Association has rejected the ban. This will be interesting to see play out.

  1. It might create “Legal Uncertainty” but it might also help prevent America from being taken over. I applaud the move because we do not need any form of “Foreign” judicial system being allowed to practice foreign law within our own judicial set up — This is America and I say “American Law for America.” — You want to live under some other system of jurisprudence then move to another country! —- If you have come here from another country — if you desire to live in America then let there be a requirement that whoever comes to these shores is subject to the Laws of America, the Traditions of America, the Customs of America, the language of America, the History of America, the Constitution of America and everything American. —God Bless America and God damned anyone who has it in their hearts to harm Her.
