As some in North Carolina are aware from recent news reports, the North Carolina General Assembly just banned Sharia Law for GOOD in North Carolina by disallowing any interference from “foreign laws and courts” into North Carolina Courts. And I couldn’t be happier.

What is Sharia Law?

Sharia Law is a composite of laws that were composed by Muhammed in order to control the population during Muhammed’s time and force compliance with his teachings. That needs to be said once more for emphasis, to force compliance. Sharia, in Arabic, means “The Only Way“.

Sharia law includes many barbaric punishments for simple and minor crimes. Theft for instance is punishable by amputation of the hands. Lying is punishable by amputation of the tongue.

Sharia Law and the United States are intrinsically incompatible. It goes without saying that the fraction of punishments I just listed are certainly considered “Cruel and Unusual” punishments in direct contradiction to our 8th Amendment in the Bill of Rights, but women are considered to be subhuman and does not possess the same rights as males. In fact, she must provide multiple witnesses if she claims to have been raped and if she makes this claim and has one of the witnesses recant, she is subject to be stoned to death for infidelity.

Sharia Law does not mandate due process, therefore anyone can enforce it, such as a jealous brother, vengeful father, or a coveting neighbor. There is no justice in Sharia Law, only vengeance which is what our constitution specifically prohibits.

Therefor, it is a good thing the state of North Carolina has outright banned Sharia Law. Perhaps it should be done at the Federal level as well.
