Now, SOUTH CAROLINA introduces anti-Shari'a Law legislation, too

State Senator, Michael Fair (R-Greenville), who introduced the bill in the Senate, said “There are some localities around the country (like NJ) that have (illegally) imposed shari’a law in lieu of local laws.”

Lawmakers in South Carolina have introduced a bill that would “prevent a court or other enforcement authority from enforcing foreign law in this state.” This effectively makes South Carolina the latest state to consider legislation that would ban sharia law.  Fair said the bill was needed because people are moving to South Carolina from countries where religion and law “are practically synonymous.” “Some of them are coming from Muslim countries — it’s a brand new experience for them, that we believe women are equal to men,” he said.
