The New York Times, in a quest for tolerance is now shilling for Sharia Law to be used in our courts. Jim Hoft details the moral retardation
Just when you thought the anti-American New York Times could not get any nuttier they start promoting Sharia Law.
The New York Times reported:
MORE than a dozen American states are considering outlawing aspects of Sharia law. Some of these efforts would curtail Muslims from settling disputes over dietary laws and marriage through religious arbitration, while others would go even further in stigmatizing Islamic life: a bill recently passed by the Tennessee General Assembly equates Sharia with a set of rules that promote “the destruction of the national existence of the United States.”
Supporters of these bills contend that such measures are needed to protect the country against homegrown terrorism and safeguard its Judeo-Christian values. The Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has said that “Shariah is a mortal threat to the survival of freedom in the United States and in the world as we know it.”
This is exactly wrong. The crusade against Sharia undermines American democracy, ignores our country’s successful history of religious tolerance and assimilation, and creates a dangerous divide between America and its fastest-growing religious minority.
Now ask yourself this. Would the same paper write the same things of Christians wanted to use Biblical law in court cases? Sharia law has absolutely no place in our courts. Neither does Biblical law frankly. The only laws in our courts should be United Sates law, or the laws of the particular states where the courts are.
The Left is so very willing to bend over backwards to appease aren’t they? As long as those they are seeking to appease are dead set on destroying American laws and values of course. And no system of laws is more anti-American than Sharia Law is. As Hoft points out
Under Sharia law, the clothes you wear, music you listen to, and television you watch would all be censored. Behavior in public is legally restricted and controlled. And Sharia is the ideal social system for those that preach Radical Islam. Sharia is an Arabic term referring to a legal framework to regulate public and private aspects of life based upon specific Islamic teachings. Sharia is an intolerant system that threatens the western ideals of “liberty and justice for all”. Sharia views non-Muslims as second class citizens, sanctions inequality between men and women, prescribes cruel and unusual punishments for crimes, and promotes a restrictive business environment that strangles the freedoms of capitalism.
This is why these laws in these states are so needed. The radicals pushing for Sharia here are not seeking tolerance, but they will gladly use the Left’s blind addiction to feeling “tolerant“ to implement Sharia here. And then, the Left would see first hand just how “democratic” Sharia is. Fools!
