FLORIDA: One more committee vote to go to pass anti-sharia legislation

florida-kouri-300x211Keep up the pressure on the State Senators, guys. Keep telling them to vote FOR anti-sharia legislation. We know that the CAIR thugs will be flooding their mail boxes with appeals to vote the bill down, because they are trying to have sharia law imposed on this country, state by state by state.



 Committee on Children, Families, and Elder Affairs votes 5 to 4 to approve SB 58 which prohibits courts from considering certain provisions of international laws including Islamic Sharia law. Please click here to send your email to Senators on Committee on Rules.

SB 58 now moves to the final committee called the Committee on Rules. 

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.  Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send which encourages Senators on the Committee on Children, Families, and Elder Affairs to support Senate Bill 58. To send your email, please click the following link, enter your name and email address then click the “Send Your Message” button.  You may also modify the subject or message text if you wish.

This bill will prevent a CAIR-intimidated Appeals Court from forcing judges to consider sharia Islamic law as already happened in Florida.
