Order blocking Okla. Islamic law measure extended



Published: Mon, November 22, 2010 @ 2:24 p.m.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A federal judge has extended a restraining order blocking an Oklahoma constitutional amendment that would prohibit state courts from considering international or Islamic law when deciding cases.

U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange took the action today following a hearing on a preliminary injunction against the amendment. The judge extended the duration of the restraining order until Nov. 29 to give her time to issue a ruling.

Seventy percent of Oklahoma voters approved the measure in the Nov. 2 election. The restraining order was granted Nov. 8.

Muneer Awad, a Muslim who is the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Oklahoma, sued to block enforcement. He says the law violates his right to freely practice his religion.

Hey guys, give it a rest with that collective "our" and "we." You sure as hell don't speak for everyone. The words "America" and "Muslim" are not mutually exclusive, no matter how much you want them to be.
