Interesting: GOP includes anti-Sharia plank in their official platform

Liberals claim Sharia law is an imaginary threat. If they are correct, a law banning Sharia would hurt nothing. If they are incorrect, we need an anti-Sharia law. Better safe than sorry?

Via TPM:
The Republican National Convention adopted an amendment to their platform supporting a ban on foreign law, with Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R) specifically stating that Sharia posed a threat to America.

"We see it from the top where the United States Supreme Court has repeatedly quoted foreign law in interpreting our U.S. constitution and it's actually coming in at the bottom as well, it's being raised as an argument in courts around the country," Kobach said.

This is interesting. I saw yesterday that a tax reform suggestion (I think it was flat tax proposal) was abandoned as part of the GOP platform, but they include a Sharia statement? Perhaps we need to get our priorities in better order? Just sayin....
