Missouri’s Democrat Governor Vetoes Bill That Would Have Banned Sharia Law

According to a government survey released in 2012, about 20% of Americans suffer from mental illness. Here is one of those Americans …

By JOE HARRIS, Courthouse News Service – “JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (CN) – Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed a bill that would make it illegal for Missouri to enforce any foreign law or legal decision ‘repugnant or inconsistent’ with Missouri or U.S. law.

Nixon, a Democrat, said that in the Legislature’s zeal to address an imaginary problem, it created a real one for parents seeking foreign adoptions.

The bill did not specify Islamic Sharia law, but it was part of a movement by right-wing lawmakers in more than 20 states who have supported similar bills.

Nixon’s written veto message said the bill could create a chilling effect on international adoptions by Missouri families.

Nixon said it also could invite retaliation from a foreign country by denying all adoptions to Missourians.

Missourians adopted more than 5,850 foreign children from 1999 to 2011, Nixon’s office said.

State Sen. Brian Nieves, R-Washington, said there was nothing in the bill to endanger foreign adoptions.

‘If he would have said the bill might cause an invasion of flying armadillos, that would have been just as valid,’ Nieves told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Nieves said he is considering whether to seek an override. If he does not, he said, he will reintroduce the bill, with language protecting foreign adoptions.

The bill passed the Senate by 24-9 vote and the House by 109-41.

If those votes stood in an override attempt, the Senate would have one more yes vote than needed and the House would have exactly the amount needed to override a veto.” Source – Courthouse News Service.

Flashback: Islamist Organization CAIR Boasts Of Muslim Democratic Vote – “The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) boasted this week that over 100 delegates at the Democratic National Convention are Muslim, more than double from 2008… ‘The more than doubling of Muslim delegates at this year’s Democratic National Convention is a direct result of their hard work and grassroots organizing within the Democratic Party,’ a CAIR official boasted in a news release. ‘It is also a sign of the American Muslim community’s growing civic engagement and acceptance in the Democratic Party.’” Read more.

Flashback: Despite Growing Concern, Democrats Ignore Islamic Radical Threats – “At a House hearing on Muslim-American radicalization in prisons Wednesday, several Democrat members were anxious to focus on anything but the topic at hand, instead bringing up threats in prisons posed by ‘right-wing’ radicals, gun possession, and gang members. ‘The violent right-wing ideology of many of these gangs must be discussed,’ said ranking member Rep. Bennie Thompson when stating his case why the committee should be focusing on ‘extremists of all stripes.’ He also tried to shift the spotlight to gun shows.” Read more.
