After years of debate, the South Carolina House passed a bill to block Islamic sharia law from being recognized or approved in the state. The legislation was passed with sixty-eight for the bill and forty-two opposed. For those of you who don’t know, sharia law is the legal and political system mandated in the Koran and other
Islamic texts includes laws governing religious practice, divorce, child-rearing, free-speech, clothing, sexual behavior and a plethora of other things that the government should really have no control over. These are the guiding principles of those who practice Islam.
Knowing this, it seems rather contradicting that liberals are so persistent on protecting Muslims and seeing that everybody goes out of their way to respect their practices, especially since sharia law makes women and non-Muslims lesser in status and grants men enormous power over wives, daughters and sons. It also allows for “honor killings” by fathers for anybody who refuses to comply.
