Montana Dems Oppose the Ban on Sharia Law

From Ben Kew, 3-31-17, at Breitbart:

Democrats in Montana have opposed a bill banning the use of foreign law in its state courts on the grounds that such legislation would target Muslims.

Senate Bill 97, introduced by Keith Regier (R-Kalispell) bans the application of foreign law in Montana’s courts, with the debate particularly focused on Sharia Law, a form of Islamic law typically used in the Middle East.

Although the bill passed on party lines by 56-44, Democrats claimed it was designed to target Muslim communities.

“I think it sends a dangerous message to minority groups both here living in our state and wanting to come visit our state, just merely on the fact that you may be different,” said Rep. Shane Morigeau, D-Missoula, while debating the bill. “I truly believe this law is repugnant. I believe this is not who we are as Montanans.”

Meanwhile, Rep. Ellie Hill Smith (D-Missoula) proposed a failed amendment to the bill to include a ban on both Sharia Law and the Law of Moses, in order to “show the state of Montana that it is not just about Islamic Law.”

“The courts have said that laws that single out certain religions violate the First Amendment,” Smith said, claiming that it was “peppered with anti-Muslim bigotry.”

Another Democrat, Rep. Laurie Bishop (D-Livingston) urged legislators “not to forget the roots of this bill,” adding that “our children are watching.”

Meanwhile, Rep. Brad Tschida (R-Missoula) said the bill was an attempt to push back against a “constitution [that] is constantly under assault.”

Bills specifically targeting Sharia Law have passed in states such as North Carolina, Alabama, Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, South Dakota, and Tennessee. The bill will now be passed on to Gov. Steve Bullock (D) for signature or veto.


Fortunately the law passed anyway despite its ‘repugnance’ and the dems’ dislike for it. They’re trying to make themselves look good in the eyes of the muslims, failing to understand that when the SHTF moment comes, the muslims won’t spare them just because they were nice to them.

Unfortunately, Governor Bullock will likely veto the bill given his stance on some of the issues. He supports same sex marriage, the expansion of Medicaid and a pathway to citizenship, just to name a few.

One of the problems with Governor Bullock and so many of the liberals is that they can’t seem to separate Sharia law from the religion of Islam.  I think in the case of the muslims and their complete commitment to both, we have to make an exception in their case and limit their freedom of religion to worship only, while within our borders. I understand that violates part of their first amendment rights, but it’s needed to protect ourselves. We’re not talking about Baptists and Methodists here, so there has to be a way to separate their freedom to worship from Sharia law, because it is conflict with our Constitution. Our religions don’t conflict with the laws and theirs cannot either.

  1. Wait……the Governor and the Democrats want to allow sharia, but claim to be supporters of homosexual rights?

    Sumthin’ doesn’t compute.

  2. I don’t see any actual conjunction between Sharia law and “religious practices”, so no 14th Amendment issues would adhere. In fact, it seems to me that such a ban would be in conformance with the Left’s constant bleating about “separation of church and state”.

    Sharia law, as practiced within the confines of actual religious practice — meaning within the bounds of mosque doctrine and affairs as an internal mechanism — wouldn’t be affected in any way. Just as the Catholics can excommunicate members, so the mosque and the Imams would continue to be able to do whatever their dictates determine, WITHIN the mosque environment.

    The ban would appropriately prohibit Sharia law from being applicable OUTSIDE those boundaries, i.e. in the secular world where actual property rights, corporeal punishment, legal rights and standing, and other societal issues are in play. Sharia law has no force or standing in that arena, nor should it under the Constitution.

    This really is a very simple issue once one cuts through the leftist bullshit.


    • Good explanation, Brian, and I agree. The muslims claim the two can’t be separated and use it as a weapon against us, so it’s imperative that we do not allow that to continue.

      Considering the libs’ frequent accusations of racism, it will take some really strong conservative voices to establish the separation of the two. The job would be much easier if we didn’t have to fight the libs too.


      • Well, their claim that “the two can’t be separated” is undeniably true in the theocratic societies from which they came, in which case they’re entirely free to return THERE.

        But in THIS country, Sharia law stops at the mosque walls.

  3. Maybe we shouldn’t have laws against rape because such laws, for all intents and purposes, target men. That’s gender discrimination!

    The great enablers are at it again, Kathy, once again proving that no amount of common sense reasoning can deter them from pooping in this den we all share. They take great pride in making as much of a filthy mess as they possibly can, but will then be mystified when the den becomes uninhabitable.

    Putting aside what a pathetic picture it paints of our trust in our courts and judges that we feel compelled to remind them that in the U.S., only U.S. law should apply, let us reflect on the powerful message that these idiot-mitten Democrats are unwittingly sending. By virtue of objecting to such a law on the basis that it’s anti-Muslim they are ADMITTING that the religion of Islam is incompatible with American law and, therefore, American values. If they were compatible, the exclusion of Sharia law wouldn’t be an issue. It is Democrats, not Republicans, who assume that Muslims can’t or won’t assimilate to U.S. law.

    Montanans better wake up and see that they have a problem, and that problem is not the Muslims. It’s the leftists whose goal in life is to be able to poop up the den and get away with it. Watch out….they’re squatting!


    • “Montanans better wake up…” – ditto that, CW. It is well known that the libs are notorious for creating problems and then portraying themselves as heroes when they present a solution. However, this problem is so enormous and continues to metastasize, they can’t fix it. The best we can hope for is to stop its growth and they’re even fighting that, so yeah, you’re absolutely right – they are pooping up everything.


  4. This is yet one more example of the shallowness of the leftist democrats. I’d love for someone (perhaps Tucker Carlson) to require one of these “sympathetic” dems to explain exactly how a Muslim can abide by Sharia Law and the Constitution at the same time – it simply can’t be done. It’s clearly a one-or-the-other choice and if the Muslim “immigrants” feel strongly about their adherence to Sharia, they don’t belong in the U.S. – end of story.

    This position illustrates that the leftist dems care more about appearances than about reality.


    • You’re right – it can’t be done, and it can’t be explained in a logical manner. Listening to any of the Dems trying to make sense of this would be a torture of mumbling and incomplete sentences that amount to gibberish.

      Trying to mix Sharia with our Constitution won’t work, but that won’t stop them from trying. And in the end, they’ll be just as dead as the rest of us.
