70 percent of Oklahoma voters are wrong and one man is right.

Well, that didn’t take long. According to Clinton-appointed U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange, 70 percent of Oklahoma voters are wrong and one man is right. That man is Muneer Awad, who is the head of the Council on American-Islamic Relations for Oklahoma. He filed suit to block the adoption of the state constitutional amendment to prevent judges from considering international or Sharia law in their decisions, claiming the amendment “stigmatizes his religion.” Miles-LaGrange agreed, and the state cannot now certify the results of its election until a Nov. 22 hearing where Miles-LaGrange will rule on whether to grant a preliminary injunction to block the amendment.

Awad filed suit because he claims his will, which is based on Islamic law, would be made invalid by the amendment. “We are humbled by this opportunity to show our fellow Oklahomans that Muslims are their neighbors and that we are committed to upholding the U.S. Constitution and promoting the benefits of a pluralistic society,” he said.

Awad didn’t comment on whether those benefits of a “pluralistic society” would include honor killings or stonings of adulterous women, both of which are permissible in some interpretations of Sharia law.

    Yes, no wonder the electorate is upset in so many areas of the country.

  2. TexasFred Says:

    Maybe it’s time for Muneer Asswad to move back to raghead land…

  3. Patrick Sperry Says:

    Or some other hell hole that befits him…

    Sadly, we have invited the vampire into our living room…

  5. Patrick Sperry Says:

    That’s a pretty good assessment Chuck.

    [...] Not in Oklahoma! [...]

    Chuck — Vampires are easy, just rub garlic on your bullets… The *mob* used it for years, and they never had a *known* vampire live to tell the tale… :P

    From what I’ve read, Mr. Awad has no will according to current islamic thought(!). Everything that happens is because allah wants it to; everything that doesn’t happen is because allah doesn’t want it to. There isn’t even any rational reality; life is but a series of discreet events created by allah. If that is the case, Mr. Awad’s own religion negates his legal argument; he has no will.

    Fred, you damned well know that a bore cleaned with SILVER BULLET OIL will indeed kill any damned “Vampire.” Just make sure that it is indeed a Silver Bullet! Of course a drop or two of Garlic Oil wouldn’t hurt!
    Dan;

    As I read that piece of toilet paper, the koran, it’s pretty much as you state. Not quite though. It’s worse.

    Another prime example of appointed judges far overstepping their role of making sure that the law is appropriately applied – “blazing a new trail”.
