A Democratic Governor from Montana, Steve Bullock, just vetoed legislation that would ban Shaira Law from state courts. The US News reported:
“Gov. Steve Bullock vetoed a bill that would have banned Shariah and other foreign laws from being used in Montana courts, saying Thursday that the measure would “upend our legal system and debase what we stand for as Montanans and Americans.”
There are 13 states considering laws that would prevent the use of foreign law here in America. This religious law used in parts of the Islamic world has been criticized by most of America, yet there is still a battle over it in the courts across the country.
The fact that Governor Bullock thinks that “there is absolutely no need for this bill” should terrify all Americans. This man is a Governor and thinks Shariah Law should be allowed in our courts?!
Bullock said he was disturbed that the ban, if he had signed it, could have been seen as an “endorsement for anti-Muslim sentiments and activity.”
Hopefully other law makers take a stand on this and get a replacement for Governor Bullock fast!
