    Default Rightwing fearmongers pass another anti-boogeyman law




    In Kansas, 45 House members, led by Rep. Peggy Mast, an Emporia Republican sponsored a bill aimed at Shariah law last year. The House approved it overwhelmingly, but it stalled in the Senate; this year, the House pushed another version, and pressure built on senators.

    Sen. Garrett Love, a Montezuma Republican, said even if no Kansas court has yet based a decision on foreign legal codes, “That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still protect Kansans from those foreign laws being used in the future — a future that really may not be that far away.”

    Though there are no known cases in which a Kansas judge has based a ruling on Islamic law, the Senate approved the bill Friday on a 33-3 vote. The House had approved it, 120-0, earlier in the week. The measure goes next to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback.


    But several senators questioned whether the legislation is necessary, arguing Kansas judges and officials already must adhere to the U.S. and state constitutions.

    Out of curiosity, how many Muslims are there in Kansas? I mean really, what are these guys afraid of?

    Black presidents, Hispanics, homosexuals, you name it. A Martian takeover of New Jersey is more likely than the imposition of a caliphate, or of Muslim law, on America. Only a true paranoid could look at America as it is today and see the creeping takeover of Islamist caliphate ideology. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_1...05-503544.html
