I know many BNI readers have already emailed the Governor, but CAIR is flooding Governor McCrory’s office with emails telling him NOT to sign the anti-sharia bill. So if you can, please send one more so we can stop sharia law from being considered in court cases in North Carolina, once and for all.
We should not have to do this because our Constitution forbids using foreign law in the US. But that hasn’t stopped at least 50 judges from considering sharia in cases involving Muslims.
*** URGENT NATIONAL LEGISLATIVE ACTION ALERT! ***PLEASE URGE GOVERNOR MCCRORY TO SIGN
NORTH CAROLINA’S ALAC BILL INTO LAW!OPPOSITION WORKING TO SHUT IT DOWN, IRRESPECTIVE
OF STRONG COMMUNITY SUPPORTE-MAILS NEEDED NOW!by Lisa Piraneo, Director of Government Relations
Over the last few months, things have been going very well in the state of North Carolina with regard to American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) legislation.
The state legislature has passed Representative Chris Whitmire’s American Laws for American Courts bill, officially titled, “Foreign Laws/Protect Constitutional Rights” (bill number, HB522) with bi-partisan support: House (75-37) and Senate (31-2).
North Carolina is well on its way to joining the FIVE other states who now have ALAC laws on the books.
But there is one final step necessary.
We are still waiting for Governor Pat McCrory to sign North Carolina’s American Laws for American Courts legislation so it becomes law in North Carolina. He has until August 25th to do so and he is being pounded by opposition groups like CAIR—who have unleashed their nationalmembers on North Carolina—to veto the bill.
At this time, it is critical that the Governor understand how important ALAC is to North Carolina,as well as how supported it is by the community.
THIS IS AN URGENT NATION-WIDE CALL FOR ALL HANDS ON DECK.
Can we count on you to help us with the quick Action Item noted below? It will only take a minute of your time, but it will send a very powerful message to the Governor.
Again, as a quick re-cap, Representative Chris Whitmire’s American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) bill, officially titled, “Foreign Laws/Protect Constitutional Rights” (bill number, HB522) now passed both the North Carolina House (75-37) and Senate (31-2)—with bipartisan support!
Now Governor McCrory must sign the measure into law, so that North Carolina can join the FIVEother states that have already done so.
This issue is a top priority for Brigitte Gabriel and the ACT! for America national organization. Can we count on you to help us with the quick Action Item noted below—and to pass this message on to everyone you know?
