Sharia Law Measure Sparks Oklahoma Debate

Ad Feedback

On Election Day, Oklahoma voters will decide whether to ban Islamic Sharia law from their state courts.

The ballot initiative would prohibit judges from considering Islamic or other international law when ruling on cases in the Sooner state.

Rep. Rex Duncan, R-Okla., said the bill is a move to keep judges from legislating from the bench. He believes voters will approve the measure, and hopes the nation will follow Oklahoma's lead.

"It is time for the federal government to safeguard the future of our court system for the next 100 years, while we still can," Duncan said.

Opponents said the legislation unfairly targets Muslims and is constitutionally impossible for Sharia law to be used in the United States.
