Oklahoma voters ban judges from using international law

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma voters have approved a measure that would forbid judges from considering international law or Islamic law when deciding cases.

Republican Rex Duncan, the sponsor of the measure, called it a "pre-emptive strike" designed to close the door on activist judges "legislating from the bench or using international law or Sharia law."
Members of the Muslim community called the question an attack on Islam and some of them said they are prepared to file a lawsuit challenging the measure."

Well bring it on, ragheads. Spend that money on lawyers. Less you'll have to build them sock bombs. Puzzles me to think that these "peaceful moslem communities" would be seeking to interfere with local, state, or federal Constitutions, particularly after the local citizenry voted on it. I suppose that some of them happened upon a link to California or some other dirty place where minority-rules are the order of the day. 

And doesn't it tick me off that we here in the Gunshine State didn't think of adding that to our referendum list. Time for me to start the ball rolling for '12.

THANK YOU, Oklahoma.
