Assembly of Muslim Jurists of AmericaAMJA’s goal: replacing our Constitution with sharia law:
The enablers of radical Islam in government, academia and the media regularly dismiss warnings about sharia law creeping into American judiciaries.. They have either never heard of, don’t want to know about, or don’t want you to know about AMJA. Learn more here: mainstream-american-muslim-jurists-blueprint-for-undermining-americas-legal-system
Florida Family Association applauds Senator Alans Hays sponsorship of SB 58 – Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases.
A voice vote was taken by the Florida Senate Judiciary Committee on SB 58. The committee has not reported a record of who voted yes and no, but just the vote count of 6 – 3 in favor. If the vote history becomes available it will be posted here at the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Response to Florida Family Association’s email alert regarding this vote was OUTSTANDING. A special thanks to everyone who took the time to send emails on this important issue.
All committees in the Florida House of Representatives have approved this legislation (HB 351). HB 351 is pending a second reading before the full house. If Florida courts accept provisions of Islamic Sharia law or other foreign laws and legal codes which are inconsistent with American laws it will undermine public policies enacted by our representative form of government and change our value system.
