Blogger: Legislature Behaving Like Janus on Sharia Law

Could this be coming to Wyoming? (Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)

In a provocative blog on the Casper Star-Tribune’s website, reporter Tom Morton examines the Legislature’s struggles with Sharia, or Islamic, Law.

Morton thinks the Legislature is engaging in a bit of hypocrisy, on the one hand trying to pass a Constitutional Amendment barring Wyoming courts from considering Sharia Law — a remote possibility, Morton says — while engaging in the same sorts of things Sharia might embrace.

Morton points out a number of things Sharia Law would threaten, but seem safe in Wyoming, including the ability to purchase alcohol and “[scope] out the babes at Alcova,” while the Legislature is busy implementing other policies hardline Islamic conservatives would celebrate, including further restrictions on gay marriage.

What of it? Should the Wyoming Legislature ban Islamic religious law on the one hand, but pass legislation that seems to be religiously motivated on the other? An empty comment box awaits your wisdom below.
