Sharia Law Deciding American Court Cases

Shariah Law and American Courts: An Assessment of State Appellate Court Cases,” published by the Center for Security Policy, is one of the most comprehensive studies I have ever seen. It covers more than 600 pages of material. The following summary statement is shocking:

Our findings suggest that Shariah law has entered into state court decisions, in conflict with the Constitution and state public policy. Some commentators have said there are no more than one or two cases of Shariah law in U.S. state court cases; yet we found 50 significant cases just from the small sample of appellate published cases. Others state with certainty that state court judges will always reject any foreign law, including Shariah law, when it conflicts with the Constitution or state public policy; yet we found 15 Trial Court cases, and 12 Appellate Court cases, where Shariah was found to be applicable in the case at bar. The facts are the facts: some judges are making decisions deferring to Shariah law even when those decisions conflict with Constitutional protections. This is a serious issue and should be a subject of public debate and engagement by policymakers.

Once these types of decisions made in American courts become part of published law they can be used as precedent law for future cases. Anyone entering an American court will be bound by decisions made by courts that appeal to these cases.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    “WE THE PEOPLE,” ARE THE ONES CALLED TO RESPOND…TO GOD OUR FATHER. YEHOVAH-GOD MADE A CONTRACT, AND “WE THE PEOPLE” BROKE IT! “WE THE PEOPLE” WERE REJECTED! “WE THE PEOPLE” WERE CALLED TO REPENT AND RETURN AND DID NOT, SO YEHOVAH-GOD CONSIDERED THAT CONTRACT NULL AND VOID! THAT OLD CONTRACT WAS PERFECTION, AND IN LIEU OF PERFECTION, SACRIFICE, FOR AN EQUIVALENT! BUT ONLY “A MAN AFTER” AFTER HIS OWN HEART WOULD BE ACCEPTED, AND EVEN THAT WITHOUT SACRIFICE, AS DAVID-THE-KING NEW, AND WHOM JESUS-THE-MESSIAH IS LIKE, BEING BOTH HIS ROOT AND HIS BRANCH, HIS GOD, AND HIS DESCENDANT-BY-BIRTH. ONE CANNOT KEEP RULES WITHOUT GOD–GOD IS LOVE–, OR YOU HAVE LOST GOD! The New Contract/Covenant SAYS LOVE! IF YOU HAVE ME, YOU HAVE IT ALL! YOU! “We the people”…So, how Love! “We the people” RESPOND TO YOU IN LOVE: You did not give us new sacrifices to perform, but asked for our love! You did not give us new hurdles to leap, but asked us only to love each other in the same way! You told us to tell others about God and to allow them freedom to respond; you told us to judge mercifully, and to do unto others, as we would have them to do unto us, likewise! You told us to have mercy on those who believe in the Sacrifice of your son, Jesus Christ, even if we differ and are different in our walk, and to help keep everyone from sin who believes Your Son! To the rest, we are to identify, and call for repentance from, sin when one claims to follow you, and to tell who you are to those not knowing who you are, and we know that those who do not believe under the “old contract/covenant,” are treated a certain way by Jews, and those who do not believe who are not Jews are not required to come under that old contract/covenant in order to be accepted…and that we are all to be treated equally! “We the people” are to treat people equally, with equal opportunity to liberty, with equal opportunity to seek joy, and gladness of heart, and with equal opportunity to uphold conscience “Under God,” and “on the way,” TO THE WAY to God, which is Jesus Christ. We are NOT to assume that everyone is under Jewish Law, Jewish Law IS NOT…the…requirement…for being “under God,” but “where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty,” and “There will be forgiven every blasphemy under Heaven to men, but blasphemy against the Holy-Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this world, or the next”…. Liberty–not “taking liberties,” with one another–is where the Spirit of the Lord, is. “The Lord is no respecter of persons”=”We believe [in Response to God], that all people are created equal”… THE LORD Yehovah DOES NOT “LEGISLATE” FAITH but invites. This is directed to commenter TedRWeiland; freedom of “our” Constitution DEPENDS on faith-filled Christians TO DEFEND that freedom! CHRISTIANITY is where freedom comes from!! Christianity IS WHY people have the freedoms they do in this country, and CHRISTIANS are to defend RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND JUSTICE WITH MERCY, OR BE TAKEN OVER…BECAUSE WE MUST “STAND,” THE DEVIL PROWLS ABOUT AS A ROARING LION, SEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR–another Bible paraphrase–AND IS NOT PASSIVE, AND WE MAY NOT BE!! I MIGHT HAVE TO RUN MYSELF… “We the people” ARE NOT GOD; WE ARE RESPONSIBLE TO GOD… <3+W
