Thanks to Marvin for the heads-up:
*** MISSOURI ACTION ALERT! ***SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR SENATOR BRIAN NIEVES’
AMERICAN LAWS FOR AMERICAN COURTS LEGISLATION,
SB 267, THE CIVIL LIBERTIES DEFENSE ACTby Lisa Piraneo, Director of Government Relations
This common-sense proposal protects Missourians’ individual constitutional rights from foreign laws or legal doctrines where the application of those laws/doctrines would violate those constitutional rights. No particular foreign law is singled out. The proposal applies to them all. It’s that simple.
Brigitte Gabriel and our national staff have made the passage of this bill a top priority for the 2013 legislative session. This is a vital step in the overall protection of the nation.
It is critical that legislation such as Senator Nieves’ SB 267 pass in state legislatures all across the country and be signed into law. Four states, Tennessee, Louisiana, Arizona, and Kansas, already have done so and Missouri needs to be next on the list. You can help make that happen.
We feel that Missouri needs to be especially committed to this goal, considering a recent article that ran in Frontpagemag.com entitled, “CAIR Director Calls for Death Penalty for Blasphemers Against Islam.” The article discusses how the Director of CAIR St. Louis, Faizan Syed, is looking to create a youth organization to monitor the media and report any “anti Islamic” or “anti Muslim” content to the “appropriate authorities” so they can “prosecute and take actions according to the Shariah ruling.”
I repeat, “according to the Shariah ruling.”
This infringement of our constitutional rights cannot be allowed, and one way to protect Missourians’ from it is to see The Civil Liberties Defense Act passed into law.
Again, you can make that happen. Now is the time to show Missouri legislators the strong support SB 267 has in the community. The more support it has, the better the chance that it will move through the legislative process and into law.
Can we count on you to take just a few moments today and let your member of the Missouri Senate hear from you?
Please call or e-mail your member of the Missouri Senate to urge his/her support for SB 267.Further, please forward this request to everyone you know. The more people involved in this easy task, the louder the roar.
REMEMBER, YOUR VOICE COUNTS!
IF EACH OF US DOES JUST A LITTLE, TOGETHER WE CAN
ACCOMPLISH A LOT!
