VIA| Polls were taken yesterday in Alabama. One of the amendments was whether or not to ban foreign laws from being reinforced or even recognized in their state.
By voting, voters made sure that no Sharia Law (Islam laws) could be ever recognized or imposed in their courts.
With a large consent the amendment was added to the Alabama Constitution.
Statewide Amendment 1: Called “The American and Alabama Laws for Alabama Courts Amendment,” Amendment 1 relates to the application of foreign law during the legal process involving an Alabama citizen. Foreign law refers to the laws of other countries or cultures. Currently, judges or other legal authorities discern whether foreign law is applied. Amendment 1 would create constitutional protection that foreign law is not applied if it violates the guaranteed rights of Alabama citizens.
Muslims were outraged claiming that the amendment was racist.
Alabama voters reminded them that Islam is not a race and many of the Sharia laws go against the American Constitution.
Would you want to vote for that in your state as well?
